Roman Catholic's Kasseim Everett orally committed to Delaware for football in August. A few months later, wishing to keep his options open, he decommitted from the Blue Hens. Now, after strongly giving consideration to Temple, Everett, a quick-footed two-way back, has committed again to Delaware. "Temple and Delaware were similar in many ways," Everett said, "but I think Delaware's interest was a little bit stronger. " The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Everett, an Inquirer second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection as a defensive back last season, also had scholarship offers from Maine and Stony Brook.

Dave Nelson, a backfield mate of 1940 Heisman Trophy winner Tom Harmon, was a 1942 graduate of the University of Michigan who loved his alma mater so much that, upon becoming head football coach and athletic director at the University of Delaware in 1951, he adopted Michigan's distinctive maize-and- blue helmet and uniform. But the Delaware football program was to take on its own identity, shaped largely by Nelson, who compiled an 84-42-2 record in 15 seasons as coach and served as athletic director from 1951 through 1984.

Given all the social problems associated with gambling, it was a welcome and right decision by a federal appeals court in Philadelphia to block Delaware's attempt to expand legalized betting on sports. Despite the setback, the First State is wrong to continue with a plan to skirt the law by allowing bets on multiple games. Delaware lawmakers, like those in Pennsylvania and other states, are addicted to gambling as a way to solve budget woes. The gaming arms race remains a bad policy on several fronts.

Greg Miller of Rancocas Valley has made an oral commitment to play basketball at the University of Delaware. Miller, a 6-foot-4 swingman, said he committed to the Blue Hens after making a campus visit over the weekend. He plans to sign Nov. 8, the first day of the NCAA early signing period. Miller said he chose Delaware over Boston University and Drexel. He had made unofficial visits to both of those schools. Last season, Miller averaged 10 points a game for Rancocas Valley, which won the South Jersey Group 3 title.

Several hundred shivering spectators turned out for last night's championship game of the inaugural Liberty Bell Classic college baseball tournament at Veterans Stadium. But while the fans in the stands huddled under blankets and sipped hot chocolate, the red-hot University of Delaware team put on a clinic of exceptional pitching, hitting and fielding. The Blue Hens (22-7) sparkled from start to finish, taking the title with a convincing 6-2 victory over Villanova. Four Delaware players made the all-tournament team - led by Brian Lesher, who batted .583, drove in six runs in three games and was voted the Classic's most valuable player.

Scott Rodgers made both ends of a one-and-one free throw with 19 seconds remaining to nail down a 62-60 Drexel win over Delaware yesterday at the Bob Carpenter Center. The Dragons (11-16, 4-11 Colonial Athletic Association) did not take the lead for good until Randy Oveneke hit a jumper with one minute to play in the game. Brian Johnson sank two free throws for Delaware (11-14, 8-7) with 10.1 seconds remaining, and the Blue Hens got one last chance when Rodgers missed the front end of a one-and-one with 8.7 seconds left.

William and Mary placekicker Brian Shallcross picked a good time to redeem himself. After missing from 20 and 25 yards in regulation, Shallcross nailed a 42-yard field goal in overtime that just cleared the crossbar, giving the Tribe a 10-7 Yankee Conference victory over Delaware yesterday at Zable Stadium. Delaware (7-2 overall, 5-2 conference), ranked sixth in Division I-AA, had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Sean Leach's 35-yard field-goal attempt with six seconds left was blocked.

A dreadful finish doomed what looked like a promising start for Penn. The Quakers went ice cold down the stretch in a 77-75, season-opening overtime defeat to Delaware State on Saturday at the Palestra. Tony Hicks led the Quakers with 31 points. Hicks had a chance to win it in regulation, but his bank shot from the right baseline at the buzzer went off the glass and then off the rim. "It was just a bunny that didn't go in," Hicks said. The Quakers looked in control, up by 62-54 with 6 minutes, 20 seconds left in the second half before an offensive drought, going 1-for-6 from the field with three turnovers in the final 6:20 of regulation.

Delaware Gov. Jack Markell said Uber, Lyft, Airbnb and other companies in the "sharing economy" are important to the revitalization of Wilmington. "I want to make sure we are friendly to these new industries," he said Monday, noting that other regulators, such as the Philadelphia Parking Authority, have been aggressively opposed to Uber, the ride-share company. Young people are attracted to urban areas where sharing services such as Uber are available, he said. "We want to make sure our downtowns gets their fair share of that," he said.

WILMINGTON - They moved the sickest patients first - children in isolation, with ventilators and feeding tubes, blood pressure pumps and IV poles carrying many medicines. A team of five or even six nurses, respiratory therapists, and doctors surrounded each bed, piloting it out of the old room, down hallways and around corners, applauded and cheered by colleagues at every turn, until each patient was safely reconnected to pumps and monitors in a new room. In all, 120 patients, many of them critically ill, moved Saturday into a $270 million expansion of the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington.

The days immediately after 15-year-old Aisha Abdur Rhaman was fatally shot last week following a fight near Delaware Valley Charter High School, principal Ernest Holiday Jr. said, were layered with grief on top of grief. Beneath the grief was fear, he said Monday, and many wondered what would come next. Would there be more violence? Would there be retaliation? Instead, there was determination to heal. History teacher Kimberly Jaroseiwicz said some students began discussing additional ways to honor and preserve her memory beyond lining the halls with personal tributes to the sophomore with the engaging smile.
