The Delaware Art Museum is planning to sell as many as four unnamed paintings to cover $20 million in old construction debt and replenish its endowment funds, the museum said Wednesday. "After detailed analysis, heavy scrutiny, and the exhaustion of every reasonable alternative to relieve our bond debt, the trustees had two agonizing choices in front of them - to either sell works of art or to close our doors," museum chief executive Mike Miller said in a statement. "While today's decision is certainly hard to bear, the closure of this 100-year-old museum would be, by comparison, unbearable.

Philadelphia spent the last decade working out a single, knotty planning problem: How should the old industrial spaces on the Delaware waterfront evolve? The consensus was that vacant land would be developed to resemble the rest of the city, with walkable streets, a mix of uses, and lively ground floors. No one was naive enough to think such projects could be realized without parking garages, but the expectation was that the structures would not dominate the river. It's a shame the conversation was never extended to the city's other riverfront, the Schuylkill, which has come alive since a trail park pushed into Center City.

The room fell silent. Everyone knew that Delaware's name would pop up on the television screen eventually, but through each commercial break, the blue-and-yellow-clad fans packed inside the Carpenter Sports Building for the Blue Hens' selection-show viewing party stayed on the edge of their seats. The crowd let out a collective sigh of relief as Delaware (25-9), the Colonial Athletic Association champion, avoided a matchup with Louisville. But when the No. 13 Blue Hens saw their name appear under fourth-seeded Michigan State (26-8)

BRETT BROWN insisted after Saturday night's 103-77 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies that this is not "slit-your-wrist time. " But following the Sixers' 20th consecutive loss, 16 straight at home and 30th in the past 33 games, it sort of has to be hair-pulling-out time a little bit, no? Before becoming a coach, Brown was in the sales business. He has been doing a lot of that this season, insisting that wins no longer matter and that the important thing is to develop the young players and find some unknown ones who may be worthy of keeping around as the organization moves forward next season.

DOWNE TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The phone in the shed on Money Island often rings before the sun rises, before the blackbirds sing and the watermen and their oyster boats grumble to life with diesel fuel and coffee. The callers, mostly recreational fishermen and boaters, are looking for Bruce Muenker, who manages a marina where the Nantuxent Creek meets the Delaware Bay. They hope he'll peek out of his trailer or glance outside the shed that serves fresh bait and gourmet coffee. They seek flat water and sunny skies - and Muenker, ever the optimist, is pretty good at luring them in, no matter what he sees.

BALTIMORE - Delaware senior forward Carl Baptiste picked the most opportune time to have the best game of his college career. Baptiste scored a career-high 24 points, including the winning basket, as top-seeded Delaware defeated third seed William & Mary, 75-74, in the Colonial Athletic Association championship Monday at the Baltimore Arena. The Blue Hens (25-9) earned an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, the school's first since 1999. "I can't express this in words," said Baptiste, who shot 9 for 11, hit 6 of 7 free throws and contributed eight rebounds.

BALTIMORE - It's a good thing that Delaware men's basketball coach Monte' Ross coach decided to check his voice mail. Ross received a call Monday morning from a number he did not recognize. Then he played the voice mail and it was a person calling on behalf of Vice President Biden, who wanted to wish him good luck. Ross called back and was connected with Biden. "We talked for a few minutes and it was great," Ross said about an hour before Monday's Colonial Athletic Association championship against William and Mary at the Baltimore Arena.

BALTIMORE - Walking off the court at Baltimore Arena, Delaware Blue Hens basketball coach Monte' Ross looked up in the stands and pumped his fist, three times, four times . . .. seven, eight, nine times. Yes, he was pumped. "We're 40 minutes away," Ross said when asked about those pumps. This is the best team he's ever been in charge of, now 24-9 after beating Northeastern, 87-74. Ross knows as well as anyone what it means for a school to get to March Madness. He was there right next to Phil Martelli a decade ago when the St. Joseph's Hawks got within a jump shot of the Final Four.
