AS THINGS STAND right now, Temple would be the fourth seed in next week's American Athletic Conference Tournament. The Owls would play Connecticut at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 13, in a very dangerous quarterfinal game. Write that down, but in pencil. Or put it on SnapChat, because it's far from concrete. Four teams are fighting for the crucial third, fourth and fifth positions in the AAC standings: Cincinnati (11-5), Temple (11-5), Connecticut (10-6), Memphis (9-7). Three of these four will get a bye for the first round of next week's tournament.

The University of Pennsylvania Health System has moved a step closer to acquiring Lancaster General Health, a $1 billion health-care system anchored by a 533-bed hospital in downtown Lancaster. Penn Medicine officials told staff in an e-mail Friday that the health system had signed a nonbinding letter of intent and will try over the next 30 to 45 days to reach a "final definitive agreement" that would make Lancaster General part of the Penn system, the largest health-care system in the Philadelphia region.

Was the officer just doing his job, or did he deliberately target a state lawmaker when he pulled him over that day? Was Washington Township Police Officer Joseph DiBuonaventura legitimately acting on a tip from a department colleague that July 31, 2012, when he stopped Assemblyman Paul D. Moriarty on suspicion of driving drunk and ended up arresting him after smelling alcohol on his breath? Or did the officer go after him for unknown reasons, falsely allege traffic violations to justify the stop, and then try to cover up his wrongdoing with a supplemental report?

The South Asian galleries at the Philadelphia Museum of Art - the eight second-floor rooms containing such dramatic works as the mammoth Pillared Temple Hall built in the 16th century in southern India - will be closed for more than a year after Sunday. Museum officials said Wednesday that the closure, long in the planning, will allow a complete rethinking of how the South Asian collection is presented to the public. Galleries will be reconfigured, lighting and floors will be upgraded and refurbished, and the stories told through the artworks will be revised, expanded, and refocused.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Gov. Wolf on Wednesday proposed cutting the state corporate net income tax rate in half by 2018, a step he said would allow Pennsylvania to move from the nation's second-highest rate to one of its lowest. Unveiling pieces of his economic plan to Lehigh Valley business leaders, Wolf called for gradually reducing the corporate net income tax from 9.99 percent to 4.99 percent, and eliminating the already-expiring capital stock and franchise tax. Wolf also said he wanted to implement "combined reporting," a concept in which the state could tax a multistate corporation's total revenue, not just its Pennsylvania earnings.

The Route 90 ramp in Pennsauken where an oil tanker burst into flames Monday will remain closed for several days as crews clean up fuel that spilled onto the roadway and into nearby soil, Delaware River Port Authority officials said Tuesday. A light pole and the guardrail will also have to be replaced and the road repaved. The DRPA, which controls the ramp, will ask TK Transport, a Pennsauken-based company that employs the tanker's driver, to pay for the repairs. "I don't expect any resistance," the DRPA's chief executive, John Hanson, said.

Emergency crews were expected to continue working into Tuesday to clean up thousands of gallons of fuel that spilled in Pennsauken from a tanker truck that overturned and exploded into flames Monday morning, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 11 a.m. on the ramp to Route 130 from Route 90. The tanker spilled 7,800 gallons of fuel, said John Hanson, chief executive officer for the Delaware River Port Authority, which oversees the ramp.

DAYTON, Ohio - With 4.5 seconds left in last night's game against Dayton and the Hawks down by two, DeAndre' Bembry had the ball and the chance to tie the game. Saint Joseph's had outshot and outrebounded the Flyers all game. The Hawks had a chance to end Dayton's 18-game home win streak and end their own seven-game road losing streak. Instead, Bembry lost the ball, awkwardly dribbling it out of bounds under the basket. The critical turnover abruptly sealed a 68-64 loss. "We messed up the last play.

SOURCES familiar with the situation have indicated that former Penn football coach Al Bagnoli could soon take the same position at Columbia, only 3 months after he retired following a 23-year run that produced a record nine outright Ivy League championships. Those people said Bagnoli is scheduled to meet with new Columbia athletic director Peter Pilling and university president Lee Bollinger this week. If an agreement can be worked out, Bagnoli would become the Lions' new coach next week.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities.   Once, it was considered off the beaten path, not worth the attention of home builders more interested in Buckingham Township or New Hope or building lots in the Central Bucks School District. Then, as Keller Williams Realty's Laura Blaney tells it, "sleepy" Hilltown Township began to appear on developers' radar. "It happened when the housing market started going crazy, between 2000 and 2006," says Blaney, who works in Keller Williams' Doylestown office.
