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.

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.

THE SIXERS came out with some new logos yesterday. One of them, with stars and the word Philadelphia around the outside, kind of looks like the Philadelphia Union logo. Another of them, described as a secondary logo, pictures Benjamin Franklin dribbling a basketball - a concept used at one point on Penn's basketball warmups, and also on the 2002 NBA All-Star practice jerseys. So that's what's new.

BERNIE ROGERS has stepped down as Archbishop Ryan's head basketball coach after 15 seasons to take the same position at Haverford School. Rogers compiled a 212-161 record at Ryan. The Raiders went 10-13 overall and 4-9 in the Catholic League last season. At Haverford School, Rogers replaces Henry Fairfax, who stepped down to concentrate on his duties as the school's admissions director. Rogers played at Ryan (class of 1992) and Ursinus. Haverford School went 17-11 overall and 7-3 in the Inter-Ac last season.

One afternoon in February, Troy Fields and about 10 other guys from Seventh Street took seats in the gymnasium of the Police Athletic League center on Snyder Avenue - for them and so many who grew up around here, a safe haven from the violence and the shootings that mar this South Philadelphia neighborhood. Lauren Baraldi, chief of the District Attorney's Office Gun Violence Task Force, and others from the antigang initiative Focused Deterrence were waiting for them. They had an offer, Baraldi said.

WASHINGTON - You can sit down and talk basketball with Brett Brown 24/7 without hesitation. But the 76ers coach doesn't prefer to do that. Though basketball is his livelihood, he is a well-traveled man who graduated from Boston University and is very informed about all sorts of subjects. He feels a real importance to interact with his young team on other things besides the game they play for a living. It's why the team organized a trip to the White House on Tuesday. Before last night's game against the Wizards in the nation's capital, players and others from the organization on the tour showed off cellphone pictures of what they saw the day before.

THE TRUTH IS that the University of Connecticut does not win the women's NCAA Tournament each year. It just seems that way. In reality, the Huskies have won only four of the last six titles, with that likely improving to five of the last seven after next Tuesday's 2015 championship game in Tampa, Fla. It's always risky to make a foregone conclusion of a sporting event before the title game is played, much less the semifinals, but UConn winning...
