W SFS isn't a radio station - it's the largest bank still based in the Philadelphia region. Lately, WSFS has been buying branches and spreading, from its Wilmington home, up the Brandywine, to the Main Line and nearby suburbs. On Monday, it agreed to pay $101 million in cash and stock for Wayne-based Penn Liberty Bank and its 11 branches, buying out 400 investors who pumped $44 million into Penn Liberty from 2004 to 2006. WSFS also bought Broomall- based Alliance Bancorp this year.

Solar panels accounted for one-third of all new electricity generation installed in the United States in 2014, up from just 10 percent two years earlier. With interest expected to keep rising, many research groups are on the hunt for ways to boost efficiency. Among them is a team at the University of Delaware, which is developing materials to harness portions of the sun's spectrum that in today's conventional solar panels are largely wasted. The key is a property of a panel's semiconductor material called the band gap, an electronic hurdle of sorts.

DOVER, Del. - If there was one thing that Penn coach Steve Donahue proved after his Quakers matched a 34-year-old record for the fastest three-game start to a season, it's that he knows the history of his program. The Quakers saw a nine-point second-half lead disappear against Delaware State but came back Tuesday night with a clutch late 7-0 run fueled by Matt Howard and went on to a 60-54 victory over the Hornets at Memorial Hall. The win gave Penn its first 3-0 start to a season since 1981-82.

The "Prince of North Philly" will be playing close to home. The Delaware 87ers used the fifth overall pick in the NBA Development League draft on point guard Rysheed Jordan out of St. John's. Jordan was The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania player of year as a senior at Vaux High School in North Philadelphia in 2013. Jordan opted to leave St. John's this summer to pursue a professional career. He missed the deadline for the NBA draft. The Sevens used their second first-round pick - eighth overall - on former Iona forward David Laury.

LOWER TOWNSHIP, N.J. - As the Jersey Shore's fledgling oyster aquaculture industry continues to expand, a new study proposes that it be restricted because of its potential harmful impact on the endangered red knots and other migratory birds along the state's Delaware Bay shoreline. An environmental report by the state Endangered and Nongame Species Program suggests that oyster aqua-farmers should have limited access to their crops on the bay during the spring migration of the red knot.

Last weekend in the Middle Atlantic Conference the top four teams squared off, with Stevenson knocking off Widener, 31-20, and Delaware Valley handing Albright its first setback of the season, 28-23. That still has left the race for the conference title up in the air. Entering this weekend, Albright, Delaware Valley and Stevenson remain tied for first place (all are 6-1, 5-1 MAC), and the top five teams are separated by just one game. If there is a team that might a slight edge, it is Delaware Valley.

Perhaps no local college football team experienced the mass exodus of players that Delaware Valley did. Receiver Rasheed Bailey (Roxborough) garnered attention in reaching the final cut by the Eagles, but the 2014 conference player of the years was not the teams only significant departure. The Aggies also lost former George Washington quarterback Aaron Wilmer, who signed a two-year Canadian Football League contract with the BC Lions and also lost all-American running back Chris Smallwood (Upper Moreland)
