This story has been updated. AN ASSISTANT basketball coach at Archbishop Wood High School resigned late Wednesday because of his alleged involvement in last Thursday's savage attack on two gay men in Center City, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said Thursday. The coach, identified by a source close to the team as Fran McGlinn, had been "serving as a coach on a contract basis," said Kenneth Gavin, a spokesman for the Archdiocese. McGlinn, 25, along with several other former Wood students, allegedly participated in an attack on a gay couple as the men were walking near Rittenhouse Square.

QUEENS, N.Y. - One by one, each basketball made its way out the front door of the West Philadelphia row home. The ball that was scuffed and marked from being pounded into the playground court - gone. The one that swished for his 1,000th high school point - gone. The ball that earned him the nickname, "Too Easy" - gone. More than just old basketballs, they were painful reminders of a young life that was stolen away. After the killing of his younger brother, Halim, Nurideen Lindsey couldn't look at a basketball - let alone touch one - anymore.

Alssene Saintilus is one of the most intriguing basketball players in South Jersey. He also is a lesson in the power of persistence. The 6-foot-6 senior forward for Williamstown can dunk in traffic, knock down three-pointers, block shots, and play defense on the perimeter. He's still scratching the surface of his potential, mainly because he's still learning about varsity competition. But it's not Saintilus' considerable athletic ability that's the secret to his sudden success.

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.

JAMES HARDEN and the U.S. sprinted into the championship game of the Basketball World Cup, riding a huge third quarter to a 96-68 victory over Lithuania last night in Barcelona, Spain. Harden scored all of his 16 points in the lopsided third quarter of a near carbon copy of the Americans' quarterfinal victory over Slovenia, when he awoke from a scoreless first half to help turn a close game into a blowout. The Americans will travel to Madrid to face France or Serbia on Sunday as they try to repeat as world champions for the first time.

ISSUE | ARTS FUNDING Board members, bring on the bucks Perhaps it takes an outsider like Michael Kaiser to finally tell the truth to Philadelphia's philanthropic community ("Seeing a way to the future," Aug. 29). The fault is not in the audience or the critics or the stars. It is in constrained budgets that hamper artistic creativity, the lack of endowment funding, and the failure to cultivate individual donors. Indeed, in the interview, Kaiser calls out ineffective boards of directors and enumerates precisely the problems that have kept many of Philadelphia's distinguished arts institutions teetering on the edge of insolvency.

Temple legend Aaron McKie is the quintessential Philadelphia guy. But he also had a distinguished NBA career that has brought the North Philadelphia native a lifestyle he may never have dreamed of. But the tug to be at home and help build the program that turned him into a first-round draft pick and a 13-year NBA player is stronger than anything that was coming down the basketball pike, which is why McKie on Thursday joined coach Fran Dunphy's staff...

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - As an 11-year-old, Mo'ne Davis already was dreaming of being on the cover of Sports Illustrated . Now 13, that dream has come true . . . sort of. She figured her nasty crossover dribble one day would get her on the SI cover, not her nasty fastball, which she used to shut out her last two Taney Little League opponents. Sure enough, though, it was the fastball that made her the first Little Leaguer to ever grace the cover of the nation's leading sports publication.

The next time the Drexel men's basketball team boards a bus to Newark, N.J., it won't be to play Seton Hall. This Saturday, the Dragons are headed to Newark International Airport to embark on a 10-day trip to China, returning on Sept. 3. Along the way they will play four games - two against professionals and two against club teams - before returning home. They will visit Shanghai and Beijing "It's a great experience for us, as a team and as people," Drexel coach Bruiser Flint said.

JAYLEN BOND (Plymouth Whitemarsh) and Devin Coleman (Friends Central) gave Temple serious consideration before choosing Texas and Clemson, respectively. Jesse Morgan (Olney) did not really look at the Owls before heading off to Massachusetts. The three Philly guys are all regulars in the Temple practice gym this summer, getting ready to be part of the solution to a very un-Temple-like 9-22. They came home for various reasons, but come home they did and, if the Owls are to get back where the Owls have traditionally been, the three transfers will be critical parts of that.
