  The odds weren't good for Maggie Lucas on the break against two backpedaling Georgetown Hoyas before one defender tripped and Penn State's prolific shooting guard stopped suddenly in the lane to create space for an easy jumper. Whether wide open from the corner for threes or creating havoc in transition, Lucas, a Germantown Academy product, was a problem all day for Georgetown in the 10th-ranked Lions' easy, 97-74 victory Sunday afternoon in State College, Pa. Lucas set a career high and Bryce Jordan Center scoring record - for men and women - with 39 points, backcourt mate Alex Bentley added 23, and Penn State's potent transition game throttled the Hoyas early.

Coaches like to soak in other coaches' practices. That's why Pat Brogan sat for a couple of hours recently on the Palestra floor watching the Penn Quakers work out. "Recognize anything?" Penn coach Jerome Allen walked over and asked Brogan. "Everything," Brogan told him. The men are branches from the same tree, although Brogan's limb now sustains a team of middle school girls in upstate Hazleton. "It's not calculus for seventh- and eighth-grade girls - it's plain math," Brogan said.

Andrew and Danny Gonzalez, senior soccer players at Conestoga, are very much what you'd expect identical twins to be. They have been best friends since they were born, as Danny put it. They have the same friends. They do everything together, Andrew said. They have the same car. And they've been playing soccer, always on the same team, since they were 4. They even took recruiting trips together to Lafayette and Lehigh. So when Danny Gonzalez committed in the spring to Lehigh, and Andrew Gonzalez was down to two finalists, Lehigh and Lafayette, the older-by-a-minute brother had a decision to make - a virtual 50-50 ball in the game of life.
