Penn's basketball team received oral commitments from three players for the 2011-12 season, including a pair of international recruits. On Monday, the Quakers received a commitment from Miller Grove (Ga.) forward Henry Brooks, a source told Scout.com's Evan Daniels. Brooks, rated by ESPN as the nation's 74th best power forward, reportedly chose Penn over Minnesota, Tennessee and Missouri. Joining Brooks will be recruits Keelan Cairns of Ireland and Simeon Esprit of England, both of whom committed Sunday night after visiting Penn last week.

Tory Cavalieri, an Inquirer second-team all-South Jersey guard from Atlantic City, has made a commitment to attend the University of Maine on a basketball scholarship. Cavalieri said that he wasn't sure when he would sign a binding letter of intent but that he would be joining the team, which is led by former Rowan coach John Giannini. The NCAA's late signing period for basketball players began yesterday. "Maine is the best situation for me," Cavalieri said. "I knew a few of the players and felt really comfortable there.

Valley Forge Junior College football coach Jim Burner didn't decide to make Dante Coles a wide receiver while watching Conestoga High football games last year. Burner watched Coles play basketball and concluded that the Conestoga senior was just what the Trojans' passing game needed. "I never saw him play football at Conestoga," Burner said. "But he could catch a basketball. If you look at his hands, if you watch him dribble, you knew he could catch a football. " The 6-foot-3 freshman caught eight passes for 107 yards and one touchdown in Valley Forge's 49-42 loss to Navy Prep Saturday.

Some of Joe Cassidy's best memories as a college basketball coach are captured from the same angle: Off to the side and slightly in the background. There's Rowan coach John Giannini and the Profs celebrating the program's only national title in 1996. Cassidy is there, an assistant coach reveling in the moment. There's Giannini and the Profs making the NCAA Division III Final Four in 1993 and 1995, taking the program to unprecedented heights in advance of that breakthrough in 1996.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - If you're going to spend any time in this gracious city in Kentucky's scenic Bluegrass Region, know that it's less important to mind your P's and Q's than to brush up on your B's: betting, bourbon, and basketball (for example: know the difference between a trifecta and an exacta and Kentucky blue is bluer than Duke or North Carolina blue.) In the Bluegrass, it's the B's that count. At first glance, Lexington appears a genteel belle, as befitting her provenance. Founded in 1776, it quickly became a center of culture on the frontier, being the site of several "firsts" - the first university west of the Allegheny Mountains (Transylvania)

CHICAGO - Sam Hinkie had just been named the president and general manager a couple of weeks before he and I sat down to talk at the Quest Multisport Complex in Chicago, which was hosting the rookie combine. Before we could even exchange pleasantries or I could get out a question, Hinkie offered: "So, you want to know about my background as a player, right?" Not really, was my thought, because I had already done a little bit of checking on that. But Hinkie offered that he played ball in high school, could have played at the Division III level, or maybe even had been a walk-on in Division I. Remarkably smart, Hinkie decided instead to concentrate on his studies, and graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA from the University of Oklahoma and also earned an MBA from Stanford, where he graduated with highest honors as an Arjay Miller Scholar.

Carr, a senior point guard who is ticketed for Penn State, was voted Class 4A player of the year; Green, a junior guard and high-major recruit, headed the 3A list; and Hunter, a 6-foot-7 senior wing bound for Virginia, was the No. 1 vote-getter in 2A. Joining Carr as Class 4A first-team all-state picks were Roman teammates and fellow Penn State recruits Lamar Stevens and Nazeer Bostick.

A woman suspected in the 2013 slaying of 23-year-old Micah Fisher in a landlord-tenant dispute pleaded guilty to murder on Monday, less than a year after retracting her first guilty plea. Brittany Young, 26, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges. Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Rose DeFino-Nastasi warned Young that this guilty plea would be almost impossible to retract. "You cannot go on back and withdraw your plea again," she told Young. "I'll deny it. " Prosecutors say that on Nov. 9, 2013, Young encouraged her boyfriend, Shawn Allen, to get a gun and shoot into an occupied basement apartment on Broad Street near Colwyn Street in Hunting Park.

ZACH SPIKER grew up a West Virginia basketball fan, watching the Mountaineers during their days in the Atlantic 10, dueling with Saint Joseph's and Temple. One of his first trips to Philadelphia led him to the 700 level at Veterans Stadium for an Eagles game against the Cowboys. He knows how this city operates, and how integral its sports teams are. "I think it's a great draw and a great attraction," Spiker said of the city's sports culture. "I think it attracted me to be a part of Philadelphia basketball.

Villanova University breaking its Sweet 16 drought has been a windfall for area retailers, from Modell's to the on-campus bookstore. Since the Wildcats' upset over Kansas on Saturday to advance to the Final Four of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, top-sellers such as the $24 "I Wanna Party Like It's 1985" short-sleeve T-shirt are moving fast. The shirt refers to the last time Villanova won the national championship. Extra shipments of many items arrived Tuesday at sports retailers throughout the region, some of whom extended their hours to meet the demand this week.
