HAMILTON, Mass. - Earl Williams knew early on that things would be fine. He would commute 29 miles from Cambridge to pick up his oldest son in the rural-suburban town of Hamilton, on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The sound of a young Michael Carter-Williams dribbling a basketball was often the first thing the father heard as he drove up to the white colonial house on Cutler Street. That noise often led Williams to walk to the back of the house, where he would spot Carter-Williams performing basketball drills under the supervision of his stepfather, Zach Zegarowski.

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.

Dajuan Wagner used to jump in the layup line before Camden High School basketball games when he was in second grade. But his passion for the Panthers goes back longer than that. "My whole life, I've loved this program," Wagner said. "It's all I've ever known. " Wagner is a Camden basketball legend who scored a state-record 3,462 points and led the Panthers to the Tournament of Champions title in a career that ended in 2001. His bond with the program was tightened Monday during a ceremony before the first day of practice for the 2014-15 team as the playing surface at Clarence Turner Gymnasium was officially named Dajuan Wagner Court.

IF YOU HAD Villanova winning a game at the Wells Fargo Center this season before the Sixers, you were sharp, if not exactly clairvoyant. If you had Villanova winning on the Sixers' court before the Sixers won on any court, you were at least in the vicinity of clairvoyant because the Sixers played 16 games before the Wildcats played any at their second home. If you had Villanova winning . . . You get the point. Villanova is really good in its environment. The Sixers are history-making bad in theirs.

OH, MY! It is truly the winter of our discontent. For Philadelphia sports fans, it is a very bleak picture. The 76ers have lost their first 12 games, provoking comments that they are the worst professional sports team in American history and raising doubts that they could beat Kentucky head to head. The Flyers seem inconsistent, at best, and don't appear ready to make a serious run for the Stanley Cup. Pat Gillick, a truly great baseball mind, has told us the Phillies won't contend until 2017, at the earliest.
