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.

OMARI SPELLMAN, Villanova's highly recruited freshman power forward, will accompany the Wildcats when they leave for an exhibition tour in Spain on Tuesday. But he won't be playing in any of their three games. While he is on athletic scholarship and has been cleared to practice, the NCAA hasn't declared him eligible to compete in games. "It's really unique situation," said coach Jay Wright after Monday night's annual Summer Jam practice/scrimmage at the Pavilion. "We hope (it's nothing more than a formality)

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.

TAMPA, Fla. - It's not taking Brandon Knight long to build an impressive resume in the NCAA tournament. A game-winning shot in the closing seconds of his debut.

Less than 48 hours after his only basket helped the fourth-seeded Wildcats survive their tourney opener against Princeton, Knight led an 11-0 run coming out of halftime and made six free throws in the final minute to close out a 71-63 victory over fifth-seeded West Virginia.

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.

Even colleges with endowments as large as Haverford's are not immune to the financial challenges hitting universities across the country. Haverford's board of managers this month approved a plan to set an annual cap on the college's mushrooming financial aid budget and increase the size of the freshman class by seven students a year for five years in an effort to balance the budget. The plan has proved controversial because it includes modifying the college's long-held policy of admitting students regardless of ability to pay and giving them enough financial aid to attend.

After receiving straight A's her first semester at Rutgers University, Katie E. Keane left for community college. A month before Keane graduated high school in 2012, her father attempted suicide. Keane thought she could handle starting college on top of the personal stress — and on paper, academically, she had. But she ended the semester mentally exhausted, physically sick, and emotionally fragmented. "So when it came to January, when it was time to start again, I just said ‘I can't do this right now,' " Keane said.

It all started at a swimming meet in December. When freshman Devon Miller was still at Kennett, she saw a friend of hers, Angela King, at the meet. The two became friends in preschool and went to Kennett Middle School together but had not seen each other in a few years. That's when King told Miller about Bishop Shanahan. Within a month, Miller shadowed a freshman at the school and made the decision to transfer. "I love it here," the 15-year old pitcher for the softball team said.

Marie McCool just wanted the experience. She didn't expect to make the U.S. national team last summer but thought playing against top competition for three days would benefit her anyway. But after the first day of tryouts, she had a realization. She could make the team. McCool called her mother, Mary, and said, "I actually think I could do this. " When she called back two days later to tell her parents she made the team, her mother cried. McCool was "playing just to play" and wasn't thinking too much like she said she did at the beginning of her freshman year at North Carolina.

"Got to get more pillows" Ana Bruni enthusiastically shouted as she walked from her spot at shortstop to the Perkiomen Valley softball dugout. Her Vikings were up by two runs at that point Monday afternoon. But what did pillows have to do with anything? The senior shortstop was talking about runs - as in a bigger cushion for her pitcher, Emily Oltman. Perk Valley obliged, getting another run in the second as the Vikings held off a comeback effort from visiting Methacton to win, 3-2. What started off as an extra "pillow" for the Vikings (14-3, 13-3 Pioneer Athletic Conference)

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.
