HAMPTON, Va. - Karl Towns Jr. makes people look in a different direction. On this cloudy Saturday morning, folks flock to the Boo Williams Sportsplex for a glimpse of Horace Spencer, the 6-foot-8 headliner at the Nike Easter Invitational 14-and-under tournament. But as the 8 a.m. game begins, fans can't help but notice Spencer's teammate on the South Jersey Gymrats. Despite standing 6-foot-10 1/2, weighing 225 pounds, and sporting a size 20 shoe, Towns hovers near the three-point line.

At first, the T-shirts were big and baggy, and Rasool Hinson and his younger twin brothers would wear them as nightgowns. But now, Hinson is 6-foot-2 and a senior basketball standout for Camden High School, and the T-shirt with his mother's picture silk-screened on the front is short and snug for the strapping 17-year-old. He still wears it sometimes, "just to remember her," he says. It's not easy for Hinson to recall the day he and his brothers, Nasim and Nasir, lost their mother in one of the most heartbreaking and horrific cases of random violence to strike the streets of Camden.

STONE HARBOR, N.J. - Pick-up basketball is a simple thing, you would think - a throwback pleasure where the interior play-by-play obscures whatever exterior reality might or might not measure up this season. You would think, then - first weekend back on the 96th Street courts, the net on one end torn and hanging like it's in some inner-city playground and not the toniest beach town this side of Amagansett - that the intrigue would be minimal, strategy irrelevant. And then you see big Charlie Naddaff, 57, 6-foot-10, drafted by the Indiana Pacers back in the day, sidle over to local Stone Harbor real estate dude Jack Binder, 33, by the fence.

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.

The Inquirer reported Tuesday that former coach Larry Brown has been lobbying the 76ers to hire Allen Iverson as an assistant general manager. There is one person who wholeheartedly supports that move: Iverson himself. "I may not know everything about physical talent or anything like that, but I have a sharp mind when it comes to that look, being able to look into somebody's eyes to tell if they are going to be in the foxhole with you tonight or if they are not," Iverson said Thursday night.

B.J. Mitchell regards himself as a basketball player who also participates in track and field. His track and field coach has another perspective. "I tease him all the time," St. Joseph coach Noel Vadino said. "He tells me he's a basketball player who does track. I tell him he's a track guy who plays basketball from November to March. " The 6-foot-2 Mitchell scored 1,369 points in four seasons at St. Joseph. He averaged 18.9 points as a senior. He plans to play basketball next year at Camden County College, with hopes of transferring to a four-year school to continue his career on the hardwood.

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.
