St. Joseph's Prep combo guard Miles Overton orally committed to Wake Forest Sunday after visiting the school over the weekend. Overton had scholarship offers from St. Joseph's, Seton Hall, Drexel, La Salle, and San Francisco, among others. But Wake's coach Jeff Bzdelik came to a practice in February in a time period when Rutgers, Maryland and St. John's began to express interest in the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder. His father, Doug, played at La Salle and had an 11-year NBA career, including playing for the Sixers.

Torrian Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard from Pennsbury, is the latest area basketball player to decide that he'll spend his college career at Notre Dame. Jones announced yesterday that he would follow Matt Carroll (Hatboro-Horsham), Martin Inglesby (Archbishop Carroll) and Jimmy Dillon (Holy Ghost Prep) to Indiana when he signs a national letter of intent next Wednesday, the first day of the NCAA's early signing period. "I felt comfortable with the coaches and the players," Jones said of his official visit to Notre Dame last weekend.

Some might argue that Nico D'Angelo committed too early. And with just cause. The 6-foot-4, 275-pounder, who will be a senior at Holy Spirit, was starting to attract more Football Bowl Subdivision attention. The offensive lineman had offers from Tulane and Buffalo, while Rutgers, Temple, and Central Florida were expressing interest. But . . . "Big-time football, all the bells and whistles, are not really important to me," said D'Angelo, who orally committed to Football Championship Subdivision program Villanova on June 27. "What I want is a good education and good football.

The loss of seven seniors, including five regulars, hasn't slowed the Father Judge boys' basketball team in the early going. The Crusaders are off to a 5-0 start, including a 63-62 victory over talent-filled Math, Civics & Sciences on Dec. 10. The Mighty Elephants entered the season ranked No. 5 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer. Against Math, Civics & Sciences, which features 6-foot-6 swingman Jeremiah Worthem, 6-6 forward Quentin Davis, and 6-7 forward Quadir Welton, Judge overcame a 23-11 deficit.

Daily News All-City Basketball Team THOSE FOLKS inclined to think of Maurice "Doo-Wop" Watson as a pump-machine scorer must not have witnessed the feature attraction of the recent Public League Coaches' All-Star Classic. Or any of his games, really. Yes, Watson scored 17 points that night. But he also dished 11 assists, posting many off passes that caused numerous eyebrows to raise. Nothin' new there. Watson, a 5-10 senior guard/whirlwind from Boys' Latin Charter, is our choice for Player of the Year in connection with the 2011-12 Daily News All-City Basketball Team.

TEMPLE'S BASKETBALL program has received its second verbal commitment for the class of 2012. The Owls landed 6-6 swingman Quenton DeCosey, from St. Joseph's High in Metuchen, N.J. Considered a very good get by those whose business it is to evaluate this stuff, he visited Temple last week and chose North Broad Street over Penn State. He was scheduled to go to State College last weekend but didn't. A source familiar with the situation said that Dwayne Killings, who returned to the Temple staff last spring after Matt Langel left to take the head coaching job at Colgate, was instrumental in the recruiting process.

And the juniors keep committing. St. Joseph's Prep's Reggie Redding and Neumann-Goretti's Derrick Rivera are expected to add their names to a growing list of high-profile juniors who are orally committing to college basketball programs before their senior years. Redding, a 6-foot-4 wing guard, has a 10:30 a.m. news conference scheduled today at the Prep. According to sources, he will declare that he's attending Villanova for the 2006-07 school year. Rivera's announcement is set for tomorrow at noon at the South Philadelphia high school.

76ers Notes NEW YORK - Swingman Andre Iguodala spent Sunday afternoon's game against the New York Knicks looking at the stat sheet, offering encouragement, and cheering during the 76ers' 106-96 victory at Madison Square Garden. He didn't play for the first time since the 2006-07 season finale, ending his games-played streak at 252. Iguodala, battling tendinitis in his right Achilles tendon, is listed as day-to-day. Starting in his place, rookie Evan Turner finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds in 35 minutes, 17 seconds.

Just when the recruiting scramble for Jesse "Booge" Morgan was heating up, it's over. Morgan, a 6-4, 180-pound wing guard who's now spending a year at South Kent Prep in Connecticut after last year earning first-team Daily News All-City honors at Olney, yesterday made an oral commitment to Seton Hall. That meant he canceled a visit to Louisville, scheduled for this coming weekend, and said thanks but no thanks to schools such as Connecticut, Indiana, Rutgers, Rhode Island and, yes, two locals - Temple and La Salle.

There are plenty of reasons for the 76ers' awful start to the season. A grueling schedule? That's one of them. A few injuries producing an inconsistent lineup? That's hurt them as well. Some tough breaks? There's a little of that, too. But the truth of the NBA is that almost every team is dealing with the same issues. The Sixers are 3-12, coming off back-to-back losses to the Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors - perhaps two of their easier Eastern Conference opponents - and will play at the Miami Heat on Friday.

BY THE MIDPOINT of the third quarter Monday, there appeared to be little doubt Stephen Vasturia would - please excuse a baseball term in a basketball story - bat 1.000 at the foul line. The question became: Will any of his charity tosses result in something other than a perfect swish? You know, that kind in which the rotation and arc are so special, the bottom of the net makes a brief appearance above rim level after the ball passes through. Then it happened. With 1:39 remaining in that session, the ball soared netward out of Vasturia's right hand and . . . major shock!

Gaining the spotlight that Neumann-Goretti enjoyed last year, when the Saints had four Division I signees, Imhotep Charter has a trio of senior boys' basketball players cementing their college destinations. Lefthanded swingman Ameen Tanksley (Niagara), guard David Appolon (Robert Morris), and 6-foot-8 forward Erik Copes (George Washington) are expected to sign binding letters of intent Wednesday, the first day of the one-week November period for winter and spring sports players to sign a national letter of intent with a Division I or II school.
