JUSTIN FLEMING might not be the best player in his family's household, but after yesterday's shooting performance he could be on his way. The Father Judge junior scored 20 points on 8-for-11 shooting and went 4-for-7 on threes in the Crusaders' 55-44 victory against host Abraham Lincoln. And you can consider the 6-1 guard's early-season shooting woes gone. In fact, Fleming outscored the Railsplitters, 18-15, by himself at halftime (34-15, Judge). "Felt great to shoot it like that because the first few games I was going 1-for-6 or 2-for-6," he said.

The painting was presented before last night's 6:30 p.m. Mass as the official iconic image for the World Meeting of Families - Philadelphia 2015, which is set to draw millions of visitors to the city roughly a year from now. "One year and two weeks two be exact," Archbishop Charles Chaput told the parishioners.

FRANCIS BITTING had been a Philadelphia kid his whole life. And then along came Holy Family University. "Prior to Holy Family, I'd only gone to the Jersey Shore," said Bitting, a junior studying business at the Northeast Philadelphia school. But once at the 60-year-old Catholic university, Bitting traveled to Taos, N.M., and Spokane, Wash., to build homes as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, the "most eye-opening experience" he's ever had, Bitting said. "If you're going to Holy Family, that first day the door is going to open and they'll never stop opening," he said yesterday.
