As much as any basketball coach in Philadelphia, David Pauley at the University of the Sciences tries to connect with the history of his game. Before his team's last home game Tuesday night, Pauley gave his seniors personal copies of a book of John Wooden quotes and anecdotes. "Ten bucks on Amazon," Pauley quipped beforehand, but he also said the little ceremony would be a private one in the locker room. That reminded Pauley that when Bill Russell's number was retired, his Boston Celtics teammates had gathered at an empty Boston Garden and watched the number being raised to the rafters.

Faced with the uncertainty of putting together an independent Division I schedule with limited financial resources, West Chester University's baseball program will return to Division II next year. In 1997, the team also will return to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. Rams baseball had competed in Division I for all but three seasons since the 1970s. Although PSAC schools were designated Division II by their presidents in 1983, some opted to have selected sports compete in Division I. "Sure, I'd like to stay Division I," said Jack Hopkins, a former Rams pitcher who completed his first season as West Chester's baseball coach this spring.

Council Rock's Dan Coval has turned the Briarwood Invitational into his own personal showcase for the last three years. Next year Coval will have to step aside to give someone else a chance after setting a standard that will be hard to match. The senior became the first runner in the history of the event to win three consecutive titles and also missed the event record by just two seconds yesterday. Coval's time of 15 minutes, 50.30 seconds on the 3.1-mile course was the third-best time ever at the event, behind only Chris Dugan's 15:48.

A few minutes past seven Wednesday night, the West Chester football players filed into the fieldhouse at the NovaCare Complex. They dropped their bags against a wall, tossed aside the sweatshirts and coats they'd worn on the bus ride from campus to ward off the December chill, and pulled out their cell phones. They snapped photos of the practice field that usually belongs to the Eagles, but for a night, was all theirs. Such are the perks of being one of only four teams left playing in Division II football.

The roads least traveled to the NFL always make for the most interesting stories. And when you study the map that details Chris Maragos' ascent to the top of his profession, you just shake your head and wonder how he never got lost or too discouraged to continue on the trail that now has him playing a leading role on Eagles special teams and a supporting one on defense. Stop signs went up before Maragos ever left his hometown of Racine, Wis. With an assist from Bucky Badger, he went through a red light at Western Michigan and bypassed a sure thing at Grand Valley State to pursue his dream of playing at the University of Wisconsin.

HAVING CHANGED teams five times in nine years, there isn't much of the football world that 31-year-old Allen Barbre hasn't seen. None of it seems to discourage him. He's a long-term kind of guy. Barbre got no offers from Division I schools, but he made himself a fourth-round pick in 2007 out of Division II football afterthought Missouri Southern. He spent his first two NFL seasons in Green Bay, waiting for a chance to start. He got that chance in 2009 . . . and lost it midway through the season.

HERB MAGEE'S journey to 1,000 wins has been detoured by the weather. Philadelphia University's game at Bloomfield (12-5) this afternoon was postponed because of snow in the forecast. It was rescheduled for Feb. 19. That means the earliest Magee can get to four figures in this, his 48th season on the sideline at his Division II alma mater, is next Saturday at home against Caldwell (9-8). He's now at 997. Mike Krzyzewski, coach of Division I Duke, can become the first college coach at any level to reach that milestone tomorrow afternoon at St. John's.

Clearly, Jonathan Lawton has taken the words of his father, Rob, a solid wing guard for Catholic League powerhouse Roman Catholic in the early 1980s, to heart. "My dad always says to me that point guards have to be able to knock down foul shots at the end of a game," the Friends' Central senior floor general said. "It's something I practice every day. " In the second half of Tuesday's matchup at Academy of the New Church, Lawton calmly went 12 for 12 from the foul line as the visiting Phoenix held off the injury-plagued Lions, 52-47.

Garret Kerr has been among the best Division II basketball players in the country, but he added something to his glossy resumé Thursday - a giant-killing three-pointer against a Division I program. Kerr took a pass from teammate T-John Casiello and drilled a high-arching three from the right wing with 2.1 seconds left to give the University of the Sciences a 54-52 win over Drexel in a stunner at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. It was the first time the 6-foot-4 senior from Middle Township, N.J., and the son of former Flyers star Tim Kerr, played against a Division I team, and the first win by the Devils over Drexel in 10 games.
