GALLOWAY, N.J. - LPGA Hall of Famer Juli Inkster will turn 55 next month. So what was she doing tying for seventh in her most recent start, at last month's Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout, a week after coming in 15th at the Swinging Skirts Classic in San Francisco, her best finish since a 15th at last June's U.S. Open? Isn't women's golf mostly supposed to belong to teenagers these days? So maybe there's a time warp going on. "I love competing," Inkster said at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, where the 54-hole LPGA ShopRite Classic tees off tomorrow on the Bay Course.

LANGSTON GALLOWAY got his first start in the NBA on Monday for the New York Knicks. It matters to him that his journey into the league resulted in 21 points in that start. It matters to him that he helped the team snap its longest single-season losing streak in team history at 16 games. It won't satisfy him, however. The Saint Joseph's product, who left the school second to Jameer Nelson in career points with 1,991 and first in three-pointers with 343, doesn't get easily satisfied, not when it comes to his game.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - On the day last week that Langston Galloway signed his 10-day contract with the New York Knicks, he called his college coach to share the good news, and from the St. Joseph's team bus, trundling through downtown Pittsburgh to a game against Duquesne, Phil Martelli gave Galloway a sound piece of advice: Don't let the culture around the NBA's worst team corrupt you. The Knicks' season has been a car crash that everyone should have...

James P. Mallon Jr., 66, an FBI agent in Atlantic City who later was a co-owner of a private investigations firm in Ocean City, N.J., died of cancer Friday, Aug. 15, at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. "In 1981, the FBI increased its staffing of the Organized Crime program in Atlantic City" and brought Mr. Mallon in from its Detroit office, said his former FBI partner James Darcy. The concern was the influence of Philadelphia mob boss Nicodemo Scarfo in the growing casino industry, Darcy said.

DURING THE preseason, Hawks star Langston Galloway was apprehensive about traveling to Italy because he was afraid of flying over the Atlantic Ocean. But Galloway regained his comfort level during the regular season back in Hagan Arena, eventually leading Saint Joseph's to the 2013-14 Atlantic 10 Tournament title and an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. Last Sunday, Galloway had his first NBA Draft workout, with the Sixers, a process that gave him the same jitters as he had during St. Joe's preseason travels.

In the spring of 2011, the Phillies were leading the National League East. To the people running a controversial "sting" operation at the time, it was more than a hot pennant race. According to people familiar with the investigation, it was an opportunity to cement a bond between a lobbyist working undercover for the Attorney General's Office and a suburban legislator. They say investigators spent about $350 on a pair of tickets behind home plate at Citizens Bank Park, during the middle of the Phillies' 257-game home sellout streak, and gave them to operative Tyron B. Ali to bestow upon State Rep. John T. Galloway, a Bucks County Democrat.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - With 11 seconds left on the shot clock and the offense briefly stalled, Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli called a 30-second timeout. Two minutes and 32 seconds remained, a back-and-forth game once again tied. Out of the break, Langston Galloway received the ball. And just like he had done 2 days earlier against Dayton, the sharp-shooting senior delivered. Galloway sank another clutch three-pointer, his fifth of yesterday's game, to spark a late run that propelled St. Joe's to its first Atlantic 10 Tournament championship since 1997 and the third in program history.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - The Saint Joseph's players, smiling while seated in chairs two rows deep, fixed their eyes on a projection screen stationed at one end of a Brooklyn Marriott ballroom. Seemingly everyone in the room perked up each time CBS' NCAA Tournament Selection Show readied to reveal a matchup involving a team seeded numbers 6 through 11. Finally, at 6:35 p.m. last night, after 63 of 68 teams already had learned their seedings and first-round opponents, the Hawks could at last stand and clap.
