Penn's Maalik Reynolds: The freshman delighted the home folks in the crowd at Franklin Field by winning the high jump, the first win by a Quaker athlete in the event since 1955. The resident of Atlanta cleared 7 feet, 31/4 inches for the win, and Penn coach Charlie Powell sees lots of higher jumps in his future. "What makes him special, he takes the high jump seriously, but he doesn't take himself super-seriously," Powell said. "I think he understands there's a difference between the high-jump world and the real world.

This is Phil Martelli's 19th season as St. Joseph's head basketball coach and as he remembers he has never given a freshman as much defensive responsibility as he does to 6-foot-6 forward DeAndre' Bembry. Most of the time Bembry will cover the opponent's top offensive player, regardless of size. That was the case in Saturday's 75-64 win over La Salle, when Bembry covered point guard Tyreek Duren, who was limited to nine shots. "I would say DeAndre' has probably had the most significant defensive role of any freshman I have had," Martelli said.

Even though the weather promises to get much, much colder, Bernard Jones has received official permission to shed some clothing. From now on, Jones will be kept under wraps by nothing more than shorts and a T-shirt. Sleeveless. It had been the intention of Roman Catholic coach Dennis Seddon to ease Jones, a 6-5, 210-pound freshman forward, into varsity competition little by little. Honest, it had. But then came last night and a Seagull Classic XIV consolation at Holy Spirit High, when Jones's numbers were big and bigger - 28 points on 13-for-19 shooting; 20 rebounds - in Roman's 71-65 loss to Bridgeton, N.J. The Cahillites (6-2)

One of Penn coach Ray Priore's biggest concerns entering the season was finding a productive receiver to play opposite Justin Watson. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Watson emerged last season. Playing alongside Conner Scott and all-Ivy League receiver Spencer Kulcsar, Watson set Penn freshman receiving records for yardage (497) and receptions (42). But with Kulcsar and Scott gone, Priore knew that double coverage was coming Watson's way this season. But Priore is getting his answers and the production is coming from another emerging freshman.

Ethan Greenidge didn't have big plans for his 18th birthday on Thursday beyond hitting the books and looking at film. "I'm 18 now, but I'm not going to do anything too special today," the 6-foot-4, 350-pound freshman at Villanova said. "Just making sure that I'm ready. " With the Wildcats coming off a season-opening 20-15 loss to Connecticut, Greenidge will find himself thrust into the starting lineup Saturday when the No. 6 Wildcats play at No. 16 Fordham (1-0) in a Football Championship Subdivision matchup.

Picture a typical freshman wrestler. Scrawny and a little on the shy side, right? Winslow Township's Vince Jones isn't a typical freshman. Jones brings strength, experience and an air of cockiness to the mat. That mix has enabled the 171-pounder to construct an amazing start to his scholastic career: a 9-0 record with six pins. In the season-opening Haddonfield Tournament, Jones, a seventh seed, racked up two pins before winning the championship by injury default. After a 9-3 decision in a dual meet, Jones flattened three opponents and earned outstanding wrestler honors in the Egg Harbor Township Tournament.

Lynch, a freshman striker, put the Tigers ahead, 1-0, 16 minutes into the second half. Deirdre Bradley added a goal and Kylie Klos recorded nine saves for the shutout.

The ninth inning ended with Coatesville first baseman Dom Ricevuto collecting a ground ball and running to the bag for the out. The Raiders dispersed and their opponent - Avon Grove - emerged from the dugout. That's when the umpire yelled, "International tiebreaker. " Right, the international tiebreaker rule. They hadn't gone over "ITB" yet, Avon Grove ace Maggie Balint thought to herself. In all of the practices before and during the season and the extra time spent after practice with her mother, Jennifer, ITB never came up. That wouldn't be a problem for Avon Grove.

ROSEMONT, Ill. - Villanova coach Jay Wright says guard Jalen Brunson "doesn't play like a freshman [and] doesn't act like a freshman. " In returning to his home area of Chicago for the first time competing for the Wildcats, Brunson showed his coach to be correct on both counts. It began once the team charter landed Monday night at O'Hare Airport with Brunson, a two-time Illinois player of the year who led Stevenson High School to the Class 4A state championship last year. "It felt weird," he said about being back, speaking Tuesday night after the top-ranked Wildcats clubbed DePaul, 86-59, at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill. "I definitely miss it out here.

After the game, players stood huddled around the bench, talking, laughing, not wanting to leave. They were having too much fun. "Make sure you tell them about your nickname," one teammate said to Azana Baines, just before she approached a reporter waiting to interview her. "They started calling me Zon-Bon," Baines said, laughing. "I don't even know what it means - everybody has a nickname, though.

Temple redshirt freshman running back David Hood was so far down the depth chart that he couldn't see the field - until October. Considered the fifth of five running backs in August, Hood took advantage of his most extensive playing time during Saturday's 31-12 win over Memphis that kept the Owls on track to win the American Athletic Association East Division. Now Hood could be a factor as Temple hosts Connecticut in a Saturday's key 7 p.m. AAC game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Jay Wright knew what he was getting, a McDonald's all-American point guard with commensurate skills and a highest-level basketball IQ. This summer, in a series of televised basketball games from the island of Crete, the expectations for Jalen Brunson ratcheted higher. "When I saw that, I said, 'Oh boy, there's a lot more coming with this now,' " Wright said recently. "Because that lit up the NBA guys' eyes. . . .

DALLAS - As expected, Temple running back Jahad Thomas wasn't in the starting lineup during Friday night's American Athletic Conference game at SMU. The Temple junior, however did see sufficient action beginning late in the first half. Thomas, who entered the game leading the AAC in rushing (113 yards per game) had injured his ribs in last week's 24-20 loss to Notre Dame. Freshman Jager Gardner earned his first start and he made quite an impression. After gaining 1 yard on his first carry, Gardener went up the middle for a school-record 94-yard touchdown run on Temple's second offensive play.

"Tim had a great summer and preseason," coach Jay Wright said in a statement released yesterday. "The good news is that the doctors tell us this is an injury that can be fixed and we know Tim will be fully committed to his rehab.

Temple running back Ryquell Armstead saw his most action Friday in a 37-3 win at Charlotte, but he had to shake off a rough beginning to stay on the field. The freshman fumbled the opening kickoff, but Temple retained possession as the ball went out of bounds. "I am glad it didn't keep me out of playing," Armstead said. When Armstead returned to the sideline, coach Matt Rhule had a simple bit of advice. "He came off pretty upset with himself," said Rhule, whose 4-0 Owls host Tulane (2-2)
