It was a defensive performance worthy of a legendary linebacker. With Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson in the house, Moorestown's defense put together a nearly flawless effort in a 7-0 victory over Seneca on Thursday night in the West Jersey Football League opener for both teams. "The strength of our team," new Quakers coach Beau Sherry said of a defense that allowed just two first downs and shut down Seneca's running game. On a rainy night when Moorestown retired Robinson's No. 89 jersey at halftime, the Quakers overcame the elements and the Golden Eagles' sturdy defense with a late touchdown on a 50-yard pass from senior Tyreek Robinson to senior wide receiver Brandon Hammons.

WASHINGTON - With the Big East As We Know It coming to an end, Marquette coach Buzz Williams no doubt figured he'd seen the last of Syracuse's zone for a while. He's got a 290-pound player on the bench who can't wait to face it again. "I know about spacing," Davante Gardner said Friday. "So they'll change it up and try to lock me down.
