The University of Houston rolled out the big guns when Chester High track star Adonis Coles paid an official visit last month. Carl Lewis, Penn Wood graduate Leroy Burrell - how could Coles turn down a scholarship offer with Olympic gold-medal winners tugging on his sleeve? But it wasn't Houston's storied past that swayed Coles. It was a future under the tutelage of head coach Tom Tellez. "I talked to Carl Lewis. I talked to Leroy Burrell," Coles said. "But I couldn't base my decision on what they did. I decided to go there because of the coaching.

Charles Barkley wants to play for the 76ers against Houston tomorrow night at the Spectrum. But will he? "I think I'm playing, but that's just my opinion," said Barkley, who has been out since Nov. 4, when he suffered a bruised spleen and internal bleeding in a double overtime loss in Indianapolis. Barkley was to be re-evaluated Monday, but says he intends to ask to have that done tomorrow. "Sunday, Monday, that shouldn't make any difference," he said. "Twenty- four hours aren't going to make it or break it. I've been feeling good, haven't had any pain.

For Eric Futch, a standout track and field athlete at Penn Wood, it came down to two schools: Houston and Louisiana State. He made his decision two weeks ago. He just didn't tell anybody. On Wednesday, in Penn Wood's auditorium partially filled with family, friends, school administrators, and classmates, the 5-foot-11, 160-pound sprinter who holds the PIAA record in the 300-meter hurdles made his college destination public. Futch, wearing a maroon Penn Wood track and field shirt, with a backward Penn Wood hat, sat at a table draped with Houston and LSU T-shirts.

HOUSTON - Much like Temple, its doppleganger 1,350 miles to the northeast, the University of Houston employs billboards in an attempt to upgrade its profile in a city where the pro and college sports scene is as congested as the highways. Sprinkled amid the tangle of interstates that encircle this city's shimmering downtown, the colorful signs feature upbeat messages, smiling Cougar athletes, and the school's redesigned red-and-white logo. Houston and Temple, as it turns out, have much more in common than a penchant for roadside marketing.

The turnovers Temple committed Friday night certainly played a role in its eye-opening, 31-10 loss at Houston. But that doesn't hide the fact that Temple (4-2, 2-1 American Athletic Conference) absorbed the type of statistical beating that indicates Houston was just a better team. The four turnovers included three P.J. Walker interceptions - two that led to scores - and a crucial Walker fumble at the Houston 1-yard line, ending a drive that could have tied the game at 17 early in the third quarter.

TEMPLE'S baseball team, in its last regular-season weekend, is going down with a fight. The Owls knocked off No. 16 Houston, 4-1, yesterday at Campbell's Field in Camden. Temple (14-29, 9-13 AAC) clinches a bid in the American Athletic Conference Tournament next week in Clearwater, Fla. Matt Hockenberry (5-5) allowed only three hits, a walk and one unearned run while striking out four in six innings.

Union coach Jim Curtin was optimistic about the return of two attacking players, Fabian Herbers and Sebastien Le Toux, for Saturday's key Major League Soccer match at Talen Energy Stadium against D.C. United. Despite the optimism, neither has been cleared to play. Herbers has a strained right hamstring that kept him out of both the June 29 U.S. Open Cup win over the New York Red Bulls and Saturday's 1-0 MLS loss at Houston. Le Toux suffered a concussion in the Open Cup win over the Red Bulls and was sidelined Saturday against Houston.

Union forward-midfielder Sebastien Le Toux suffered a concussion in Wednesday's 2-1 Round of 16 U.S. Open Cup win over the New York Red Bulls and won't be available for Saturday's Major League Soccer game in Houston against the Dynamo. Le Toux hit his head in a collision in the 79th minute and left the game. He played up top because the Union's top two forwards, C.J. Sapong and Fabian Herbers, were out with injuries. Le Toux has not missed an MLS game this season for the Union, appearing in all 17 and starting 12. He has two goals and a team-high five assists.

Bobby: Whitney drugged at wedding I mean no disrespect, but Bobby Brown sure seems to be getting a kick out of raking up old stories - and not very flattering ones - about his late daughter and late ex-wife. In a clip from a 20/20 interview that was to run Tuesday, Brown recalled that he caught Whitney Houston on their wedding day, "hunched over a bureau, snorting a line of coke. " Drugs played a part in Houston's 2012 death, as they did in the death of their daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown , who died last year at 22. Bobby Brown, 47, followed up the ugly memory with a defense of Houston.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Vince Velasquez crouched behind the mound and with his finger he etched a cross in the dirt. The Phillies pitcher said a short prayer and then reflected as he waited for another game to begin. Velasquez is competing for the final spot in the Phillies' starting rotation. But before each start, he pauses to remind himself who he is playing for. He thinks about his parents, who used their strong work ethic to push their son's baseball dream into reality. And the pitcher thinks about his two older brothers - Leonard Jr. and Christopher - both of whom followed their father, entered the Marine Corps, and served in Iraq.

Temple remains in the hunt for an NCAA basketball berth, and one of the reasons is the Owls' ability to win the close games. For the fourth time in the last six games, Temple won by five points or fewer Sunday in a 69-66 comeback win at Houston. That improved the Owls to 17-9 overall and kept them in first place in the American Athletic Conference with an 11-3 mark. They don't have much time to savor the win since Temple must visit Tulsa (18-9, 10-5) in an AAC matchup Tuesday night.

HOUSTON - Among the many reasons the Houston Chamber of Commerce uses to encourage travel to its city, "long-term memory" is not listed, but it's one the Temple Owls used to their advantage Sunday night as they beat Houston, 69-66. The win helped ease the memory of a 27-point thumping the Cougars gave the Owls earlier this season, as well as the memory of a disastrous Texas road trip last year that probably cost the Owls a chance at the NCAA tournament. "Of course, that was on all of our minds," said Temple forward Obi Enechionyia, who led all scorers with a career-high 26 points.

A year ago, Temple's chances at earning an NCAA berth were hurt considerably by a two-game road trip that began in the state of Texas and ended in Tulsa around this same time of the year. The Owls lost at SMU, 67-58, and then were routed at Tulsa, 55-39, in their lowest-scoring output of the season. The fact that Temple was the 69th choice of a 68-team NCAA field shows how important that road trip was. The Owls are in a similar situation. Temple is 16-9 overall and first in the American Athletic Conference with a 10-3 mark and very much in the NCAA conversation.
