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.

FRISCO, Texas - Pat Devlin transferred to Delaware from Penn State in 2009 for two reasons: to get playing time and win a national title. The fifth-year senior quarterback from Downingtown East has to settle for playing time. Eastern Washington defeated Delaware, 20-19, Friday night at Pizza Hut Park for the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title. The victory, in front of a crowd of 13,027, gave the Eagles (13-2) their first national title. Junior quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, a Southern Methodist transfer, produced three second-half touchdown passes.

NEWARK, Del. - The players came out for pregame layups with little buzz in the crowd. As with a lot of minor-league sports, the game itself wasn't the main attraction to many in attendance. For some youngsters it was a fun night out, watching the 76ers' NBA Development League team, the Delaware 87ers, compete while also participating in other activities that were offered as the game was being played. The players view it as much more, a way to lift themselves out of obscurity and into basketball's big time.

Nearly a week after celebrating with fans who stormed the court after a decisive victory against No. 10 Kansas, with the start of conference play looming, the Temple Owls returned to the court and sidestepped a potential land mine. They didn't overlook Delaware State. Jesse Morgan scored a team-high 15 points, all on three-pointers in the second half, and Jaylen Bond added 12 points and set a building record with 18 rebounds on the way to a 66-56 victory Sunday night at the Liacouras Center.

NEWARK, Del. - Temple coach Fran Dunphy anticipated the moment when he could add transfers Jesse Morgan and Devin Coleman to his lineup, but he also wondered about the challenges to team chemistry that might come with it. On Thursday night against an overmatched Delaware team, Dunphy got his first look at the two transfers in cherry and white. The chemistry was just fine. Morgan, a Massachusetts transfer who was playing his first game in almost two years, tied Quenton DeCosey with a team-high 16 points as the Owls cruised past the Blue Hens, 82-62, in a nonconference game at the Bob Carpenter Center.

NEWARK, Del. - A week before Christmas, Temple's offense, specifically its long-range shooting, was in desperate need of gifts. They got two Philly guys and they came out firing. Shooting guard Jesse Morgan, playing his first game in nearly 2 years after tearing an ACL in January 2013 while playing for Massachusetts, started in place of big man Devontae Watson and was not going to be cheated. He launched five shots in his first 7 minutes on the court. Morgan (Olney High) was going to shoot his way back to top form.

Vinny Papale had a broken collarbone. He was experiencing another kind of discomfort, too. "When I got hurt, I was afraid I wasn't going to hear from anybody," Papale, a senior at Bishop Eustace Prep, said of his chances of earning a football scholarship. Despite missing a large chunk of the second half of the season, Papale earned a scholarship offer from Delaware. Papale, the son of former Eagles walk-on Vince Papale, committed to the Blue Hens last weekend. He will sign his letter of intent Feb. 4 as part of national signing day. "I loved it down there," Papale said of Delaware.

A Grinch - or Grinches - evidently sabotaged the annual Delaware River "Santa Run," in which gifts are distributed to visiting seamen, some from thousands of miles away. After discovering that the tugboat   Jupiter   had an inoperative propeller, the Seamen's Church Institute and the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild canceled the event Saturday. The Seamen's staff had planned to deliver ditty bags to seafarers from many nations aboard ships docked on the Delaware River.

Former longtime Delaware coach K.C. Keeler isn't about to gloat, even though his homecoming is another success story, matching the rest of his coaching career. Keeler's Sam Houston State team (10-4) will visit Villanova (11-2) in Saturday's 1 p.m. Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinal. The winner will play next Friday or Saturday against the winner of the North Dakota State-Coastal Carolina game. Villanova could host that game if Coastal Carolina wins. A Delaware graduate who replaced the legendary coach Tubby Raymond in 2002, Keeler was fired after a 5-6 season in 2012.

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.

With all of Villanova's impressive statistics through the first two weeks of the season, the number "28.9 percent" stands out like a rash. That was the Wildcats' mark from three-point range through their first five games. In fact, Delaware coach Monte Ross had his zone defense guard the inside Sunday so Villanova would shoot from deep. But in its Wells Fargo Center regular-season debut, No. 12 Villanova established season highs for made three-pointers (13) and three-point percentage (40.6)
