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.

Archbishop Wood's Tom Funk, a 5-foot-11 senior point guard who earned second-team all-Catholic League honors last season, made an oral commitment to Army on Monday. Funk received a scholarship offer from Army in April. He made his second visit to West Point on Friday. "Committing to Army is a big life decision," the 17-year-old from Warrington said. "But it's a great opportunity. It will give me the tools for future success. " Funk averaged 14.6 points, 5.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 3 steals while helping Wood to an 18-6 overall record last season.

When a childhood friend of Bradley Bayard's learned that his father, Robert H. Bayard, had died this week, he e-mailed his old friend. "Your dad drafted me in basketball, when he knew I stunk," Bradley Bayard said the friend told him. And, the friend said, that "made me feel like a great person. " Robert Bayard was coaching the Police Athletic League in Cinnaminson, his son said, when Bradley and the Arizona friend were "probably 12 to 14 years old. " They are now in their mid-40s, Bradley Bayard said, and it was a tribute to his father that the memory had endured.

JUSTIN PARKER learned much more on his neighborhood basketball court than how to shoot a free throw. "I learned how to treat people," the 17-year-old said of his time on the pavement in Oxford Circle. "Being on that court taught me respect. " Chad Dion Lassiter, sitting inside a packed gym in South Philly last night, beamed at Parker's words and offered him a fist bump. If there were a poster child for "Brotherhood and Basketball" - as the event was titled - it would be Parker, a young African-American who found direction and focus through love of the sport.

Matt McDonald, a 6-foot-5 forward who played last season at Fairleigh Dickinson, has transferred to Penn. "Matt is a great addition to the Quaker basketball family," Penn coach Steve Donahue, hired earlier this year, said in a statement released by Penn. "He is the type of player, on and off the court, who we feel can help us compete for an Ivy League Championship. Matt has started the last two years at Farleigh Dickinson, and was a captain his sophomore season. He will be a terrific leader for our young players.

The basketball courts are easily overlooked: Just three blacktops and a dimmed scoreboard bracketed by a couple of sets of metal bleachers. They stretch along an otherwise barren block of Seventh Street near downtown Chester, in the shadows of a railroad overpass. But in the gritty city of 34,000 with a remarkable basketball tradition, the Seventh Street courts are king. For many, they are home - a relief, an escape, the premier athletic battleground. A tiny haven of safety within one of the region's most dangerous cities.

Muhammad, 13, hopes to play basketball and football in the coming school year and, long term, dreams of becoming either a professional athlete or a musician. For the time being, though, he happily watches sports, and listens to hip hop and rap. He recently completed seventh grade, where he excelled in his classes. Math is his favorite, though he loves learning, regardless of the subject. Polite and outgoing, he gets along well with his peers and adults, although it takes some time to build a rapport with new acquaintances.

Ron Pollack watched his father crunch numbers for years as a member of the 76ers' statistics crew and as a pro basketball employee since 1946. Harvey Pollack was credited with coming up with the system of tracking rebounds, steals, turnovers, blocked shots and other statistics. However, "the one number he never came up with was how many lives he touched," Ron Pollack said Friday afternoon at his father's funeral at Goldstein's Rosenberg's Raphael-Sacks on North Broad Street. Those sentiments were echoed repeatedly at a gathering of about 200 to say goodbye to Pollack.

NEW YORK - It was like the parade before the beauty pageant yesterday on the fifth floor of the Westin Hotel in Times Square for 19 players who are anxiously awaiting tonight's NBA draft. The fashion was subdued - kind of like business casual - compared to how the players will be decked out tonight. The moods were light and loose, the exact opposite of what they'll be tonight. It was one last chance for them to meet with the media and talk about how their lives will be changing once their names are called.
