Rakeem Christmas and Malcolm Gilbert departed for Syracuse and Pittsburgh, respectively. And blue-chip recruit Savon Goodman took his talents to Constitution High, in Center City. That left Marcus Gilbert, Malcolm's younger brother, as the go-to player for Academy of the New Church. "I'm fine with that role," the 6-foot-6, 185-pound senior said. "I saw this as a great opportunity for me to step up and show what I could do. " On Tuesday, in a Friends Schools League opener at Abington Friends, Gilbert, a high-leaping swingman, posted 16 points, 12 rebounds, 5 blocked shots, and 3 assists to help the Lions leave Jenkintown with a 53-51 triumph.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was out of the hospital and back home yesterday, recovering from the concussion he sustained during the Gators' 41-7 victory at Kentucky. Tebow was released from the University Medical Center in Lexington yesterday morning. He had been held overnight for precautionary reasons. Coach Urban Meyer spent the night in the hospital with Tebow. The top-ranked Gators (4-0) are off this week, then play at LSU on Oct. 10. It might be several days or longer before Tebow's status becomes clearer for what could be the toughest game on the defending national champions' schedule.

It was about halfway through the season when Westtown coach Seth Berger had a heart-to-heart chat with Daniel Ochefu. "He told me that I needed to play with more intensity," the 6-foot-10, 240-pound center said. "As soon as the new year started, I began doing that. " In Friday night's Friends Schools League championship game vs. Academy of the New Church, Ochefu, playing with that renewed passion, sparked the Moose to a 55-46 victory at Haverford College. In helping Westtown secure its first FSL title since the 1985-86 season, the Villanova recruit delivered 15 points, 16 rebounds (six on offense)

After experiencing some homesickness in his first year at Academy of the New Church, Ontario native Dinjiyl Walker is flourishing. "It was a little bit hard at first, coming over here and not knowing anyone," Walker said. "But the team really embraced me, made me feel like part of the family. I'm thankful for that. " Walker, who arrived in Bryn Athyn in 2010, is equally comfortable on the hardwood, as he showed in Friday night's Friends Schools League showdown vs. Westtown.

The days of being recognized primarily as Malcolm Gilbert's younger brother are over.

The 6-foot-6 swingman, who will become a senior at the Academy of the New Church, has received scholarship offers from Boston University, Iona, Fordham, Rider, Albany, and James Madison this summer. He's also receiving interest from Penn State, Temple, Clemson, St. Bonaventure, and St. Joseph's.

THE BEST Anthony Castonzo, Boston College Size: 6-7, 311. 40 time: 5.21. Projected round: 1 Mayock: "Very close between he and [USC's] Tyron Smith. I'm going with 52 consecutive starts [Castonzo] over a 20-year-old right tackle [Smith]. I don't think this class is anywhere near as strong as a year ago, when [offensive tackles] went 4, 6 and 11. But I like Castonzo. I like his intelligence. I like his feet. He needs to get stronger. His core and lower body both need to get stronger, and he has a tendency to overextend and get beat inside.

Tim Tebow could be back in the huddle in time for Florida's biggest game of the season. Coach Urban Meyer said yesterday that his star quarterback was feeling better and eating well 2 days after suffering a concussion at Kentucky. Although Tebow still has "a little bit of a headache," Meyer hopes he will be able to play when the top-ranked Gators (4-0) return to the field Oct. 10 at LSU. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner was put through a battery of tests yesterday and was scheduled for more today, Meyer said.

LeSean McCoy's strong effort against the Steelers was another example of why statistics, especially in football, can be overrated. If you were just looking at the running back's numbers on Sunday - 16 carries for 53 yards and four catches for 27 yards and a touchdown - you could surmise that McCoy had a so-so day. Actually, he turned in his most gutsy performance of the season. McCoy's most impressive moments came in the fourth quarter during the Eagles' 17-play, 79-yard drive that briefly gave them a 14-13 lead.
