Exactly a month had passed between Penn's last home game and Tuesday night's return to the Palestra. Forty days had passed since the Quakers' last win. A matchup with Lafayette - a team that had never beaten Penn in 22 previous meetings on 33d Street - seemed to be the perfect midwinter pick-me-up. It proved to be just the opposite. The Leopards rode an early second-half surge and staved off a frantic Penn comeback to deal the Quakers an 85-83 loss. Penn's offense found a good rhythm in the first half, registering 11 assists while scoring 40 points.

Conner Bor will have a new football team next season. He also will have a new position. Bor, a senior at Bishop Eustace, said Tuesday night that he has committed to attend Lafayette College on a football scholarship. Bor, a quarterback and defensive back in high school, was recruited to play outside linebacker for the Snow Leopards of the Patriot League. "It's really exciting that they think I can play a position I didn't play in high school," Bor said. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Bor, a second-team All-South Jersey defensive back, said he decided on Lafayette after narrowing his choices to the Leopards, Bucknell, Delaware, and Colgate.

PENN HAD NOT won a game since Nov. 28. Penn had not played a game at the Palestra since Dec. 8. Penn had never lost a game at the Palestra to Lafayette. Penn trailed Lafayette by 15 points with 7 1/2 minutes to go at the Palestra. With 3 minutes to go, it was tied. With 3 seconds to go and his team trailing by two points, Penn's Steve Rennard, the lone starter on the floor, was wide open on the left wing beyond the three-point arc. He set his feet and took his time. Lafayette is now 1-22 against Penn at the Palestra.

When the nurses came into the Abington Memorial Hospital delivery room yelling: "Happy New Year!" Sara and Greg Stokes knew their baby was close. "We had to get pushing," said Sara Stokes, of Lafayette Hill. Five minutes later, their daughter Marguerite Lynn - Maggie Lynn - was born. Across the region, hospitals and parents were keeping close tabs to see who had delivered the first baby of 2013. Abington Memorial, where 5,000 infants are born each year, seems to have claimed the title with Maggie Lynn.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and second-ranked Connecticut played spoiler and streak-buster this time, snapping No. 1 Stanford's nation-leading 82-game home unbeaten run with a surprisingly easy, 61-35 rout Saturday in Stanford, Calif. It was the Huskies who saw the end of their NCAA record 90-game winning streak at Maples Pavilion with a 71-59 loss two years ago, almost to the day on Dec. 30. Mosqueda-Lewis scored 19 points as UConn (11-0) thoroughly outplayed Stanford (11-1) on both ends of the floor in this highly touted game featuring the country's top programs and Final Four regulars from opposite coasts.

  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.
