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.

Operating the Delaware River's ferry has been a losing proposition for the Delaware River Port Authority, but a vote Wednesday will give a Philadelphia nonprofit a shot at using the boat to improve waterfront tourism. After operating the service for 16 years, the DRPA approved a plan to hand ownership of the RiverLink Ferry (named Freedom), which travels between Penn's Landing and Camden, to the Delaware River Waterfront Corp. The decision at the authority's monthly board meeting caps four years of negotiations over the boat's ownership.

DuPont Co. collected $2.5 billion in after-tax profits last year. Dow Chemical Co. collected $4 billion. They aren't guaranteeing how many of the 5,000 or so people they still employ in Delaware will still have jobs when they are done merging and then splitting into three successor companies in a couple of years. So Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and state legislators from both parties say they felt they didn't have much choice but to give these highly profitable chemical-makers millions in grants and tax concessions, in hopes they won't fire or move more people away.

There are plenty of examples of iconic dancer/visual art collaborations - Degas' ballerinas, Jasper Johns' set for Merce Cunningham, John Sloan's Isadora Duncan - but one in particular has local resonance. David Rush's Nureyev's Eyes , at Delaware Theatre Company, examines the long friendship between Russian defector and ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev and Chadds Ford painter Jamie Wyeth. The production, lifted straight from the George Street Playhouse, features the same team: William Connell as Wyeth, Bill Dawes as Nureyev (until March 16, when Jed Peterson - played Nureyev in the play's world premiere at Florida's American Stage Theatre Company - takes over the role)

McBride Jr. set bail at $750,000 full cash.

DREXEL CAN'T shoot. The numbers don't fib. Going into Thursday night's game against Delaware at the Daskalakis Center, the Dragons were converting 38.7 percent from anywhere, 32.3 from three. So it wasn't anything that unusual when they were 11-for-32 in the first half, 1-for-12 from deep. But it was a really big deal when they went 14-for-21, 4-for-6 in the final 20 minutes. And maybe not coincidentally, they were able to turn a two-point intermission deficit into a 74-64 win, which gave them their first winning streak since last season.
