Haverford School striker Brett Campbell has committed to play soccer for Georgetown, Fords coach Bill Brady said Thursday night. Campbell, a junior, chose Georgetown from a crop of scholarship offers, which included Penn State, Penn, and Wake Forest. A year ago, Brady said, Penn might have been the front-runner for Campbell's services, but the draw of the Big East, of which Georgetown is a member, combined with the school's academic reputation, tipped Campbell toward the Hoyas.

Nigerian-born Omowumi Rafiu, a Neumann-Goretti basketball player whose introduction to the sport came a little more than four years ago in her native country, has signed a national letter of intent to play for Georgetown next season. The 6-foot-2 forward averaged about 11 points last season, her first at Neumann-Goretti, after coming to this country. She helped the Saints reach the quarterfinals of the Catholic League playoffs. Mike Flynn's Blue Star report ranks her 36th in the country at her position.

GEORGETOWN forward Greg Whittington stole the ball on the perimeter and dribbled up court, slowing slightly once he reached the paint to size up a defender, who was closing on him. Whittington dunked, anyway. There was little Longwood could do as No. 15 Georgetown cruised to an 89-53 victory Monday night. Otto Porter scored a career-high 22 points, added seven assists and four steals and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half. The point total for Georgetown (8-1)

Although both Georgetown and New Mexico won their first-round games Friday with impressive offensive numbers, it was excellent defense on the part of both teams that made it so easy. Georgetown, a popular choice to make it to the final of the Eastern Regional, if not to the Final Four, will get its first serious test at 12:15 this afternoon when the second-seeded Hoyas (27-7) meet the seventh-seeded Lobos (28-4) at Richmond Coliseum. Georgetown advanced to the second round with a 93-56 win over Mississippi Valley State, a win made easy when the Hoyas held the impatient Delta Devils to just 24 percent shooting in the first half.

The Florida Gulf Coast basketball players held their jerseys after the final buzzer so everyone could see the green "FGCU" embroidered across their chests.   Two hours earlier, those letters were irrelevant. Those letters are now forever in NCAA tournament lore. Fifteenth-seeded Florida Gulf Coast, or FGCU, pulled off one of the biggest upsets in tournament history with a 78-68 win over second-seeded Georgetown to advance to Sunday's third round.   "I told our team before the game that Georgetown is ranked eighth in the country.

WASHINGTON - Villanova's had been a very smooth ride for 18 games except for a small bump in North Jersey. Villanova's bus broke down 30 miles north of Baltimore on Sunday, got going and broke down again inside the Fort McHenry Tunnel. The bus got out of the tunnel and went to the side of the road, awaiting a replacement. This apparently was a sign. Villanova's offense broke down or was broken down by Georgetown last night at the Verizon Center. The Wildcats, so confident, so smooth and so in control for so long, were none of that against the Hoyas' swarming defense.

T HIRTY OR so years later, Jim Schwartz remembers his former Georgetown teammate as being "really serious, someone who worked hard. " That isn't exactly the persona comedian Jim Gaffigan portrays today. Gaffigan, who announced Monday that his TV Land show won't have a third season, by his choice, has made a career of playing a certain type of white-bread, mid-American schlub; there's a line of dad-comedy-style car commercials, and a vaguely creepy portrayal of Colonel Sanders on behalf of KFC. "I saw him just this summer" in Maryland, said Schwartz, who is from Baltimore and has a shore house near there.

'THERE'S THIS kid I think you're going to really like," Zach Samol said. Samol, an assistant coach at Georgetown, returned from a recruiting trip in 2011 with notes on a handful of players for head coach Brian Wiese to examine. Keegan Rosenberry, who was playing for the Penn Fusion Soccer Academy, was a highlight on the trip. "(Samol) kept saying, 'You're just going to like him. He does everything right,' " Wiese said. Samol knew the kind of player Wiese was trying to attract at Georgetown: fundamentally sound, with good habits.

Hello there Moments after they met, they danced. It was November 2007, and Filiz and TJ were students at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, out with mutual friends at a little joint serving sushi by day and dance tunes by night. Their friends couldn't believe that two people who shared not just friends, but interests and world view, had never met. One voiced the conclusion the group reached: "You guys should really talk. " They did, in the short, loud bursts the setting allowed.

Thomas Awad admitted he "wasn't feeling too hot" running the anchor leg during the men's 4-by-mile relay championship Saturday at the Penn Relays and wondered whether he'd have enough in the tank to overtake the leaders and challenge at the end. But this was the Penn Relays, and Awad runs for Penn, and the Quakers hadn't won a relay race of any kind at their home carnival since 1974, or in this event since 1950. So Awad, a senior who finished third in last month's NCAA indoor championships, found that extra burst of energy and put it into overdrive to pass Indiana and Georgetown with 50 meters to go to claim the upset and end the Quakers' drought at Franklin Field.

Being fifth-year seniors at Georgetown, Katrina Coogan and Andrea Keklak are experienced in the ways of the Penn Relays and did not allow the damp chill enveloping Franklin Field on Thursday to keep them from what they've been waiting for their entire careers. The Hoyas blew open the women's distance medley relay with their two middle legs - senior Heather Martin in the 400 meters and junior Sabrina Southerland in the 800 - and romped to a decisive victory over Oklahoma State and Villanova in the featured race on the first full day of the 122nd annual carnival.

They were cold. They were cold, literally. "Actually, freezing," Georgetown's Sabrina Southerland said of the conditions on the first full day of competition at the 122th Penn Relays. They were cold in another way, as well - clinical, focused, undeterred by the elements or the stage, by the recent history or the competition. "Basically, we knew we just had to go out and do our jobs," Georgetown's Katrina Coogan said after anchoring her team to an imposing victory in the distance medley relay Championship of America race late Thursday afternoon on the refurbished track at Franklin Field.

Some new coaches will be present at Franklin Field this week amid all the teams competing at all levels at the 122nd Penn Relays. But it's a safe bet that very few are happier than Mike Smith, the first-year director of track and field at Georgetown and a former Hoya runner who clocked a personal-best time at Penn in the 5,000 meters in the early 2000s. "I've got fond memories of that venue as an athlete," Smith said this week, "and it's an honor to come back, given Georgetown has such a rich history at the Penn Relays, to lead them as coach.
