The last of junior forward Jeffrey Hagen's 15 points was the most important, as his final-second free throw sent 14th-seeded Malvern Prep to a 40-39 upset at third-seeded Friends' Central in the first round of the state Independent Schools boys' basketball tournament Tuesday. The Friars hung around thanks to a stifling defense, holding Phoenix top scorer Karonn Davis to 11 points and 6-foot-4 freshman De'Andre Hunter to nine. After forcing a Hunter miss, Hagen was fouled with 0.9 seconds remaining and hit 1 of 2 from the line for the winning margin.

The developer calls Malvern "the town that time forgot" - its main street lined with Victorian-style houses, small boutiques, and local watering holes like the Flying Pig Saloon. But Eli Kahn and his partners are betting that a $45 million apartment and retail complex on East King Street will help satisfy urban appetites in one of the region's most venerable suburbs - and entice empty nesters and young professionals looking for a citified environment outside the city. Construction on the East King Street redevelopment project began in June and includes two large apartment buildings with 190 units, plus first-floor retail space that Kahn envisions renting to restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques.

A couple nearing retirement who had already owned several large homes while raising their family might be expected to downsize to a modest residence. But, no, Ann and Ed Gunning weren't having any of that. One thing is pretty much crystal clear when meeting these empty-nesters: They relish being surrounded by loved ones. Which is why, when the Gunnings bought their 5,500-square-foot two-story single in Malvern, their legendary parties - filled with hearty dishes and steins of robust beer - figured significantly.
