On Monday night, Browne, who leads South Jersey in home runs with nine, committed to Maryland on a baseball scholarship. Browne also seriously considered Duke, Lafayette, and Penn.

One of them was 6-foot-6 sophomore forward Kris Jenkins, who played 20 minutes and posted team highs of 15 points and four steals in the Wildcats' 81-44 victory over the Hawks at the Pavilion.

The investigators watching the sedan with the broken windows in the parking lot in Jessup, Md., on Wednesday evening saw two figures in the backseat: a man and a woman they hoped was a 22-year-old from Philadelphia who had been violently abducted three days earlier. Then the man climbed into the front seat and tried to pull away. The ATF agents closed in with guns drawn. The man surrendered without a fight. The terrified woman in the backseat gave her name: Carlesha. And with that, the three-day ordeal that stretched across state lines and galvanized police and the public came to an end, with Carlesha Freeland-Gaither injured but safe, and a wanted man with a history of violence in custody.

STATE COLLEGE - On Sept. 9, the streets of downtown State College were swarmed with chanting and smiling students, celebrating the lifting of Penn State's bowl ban. Over the next couple weeks, the Nittany Lions channeled that energy and came away with two victories, pushing their record to a spotless 4-0. The first 4 weeks of the 2014 season jolted the Penn State community with buzzing hope. But since then, the mood at Penn State - and the play on the gridiron - has taken a 180. Four consecutive losses since starting undefeated have the Lions in a precarious position; the last time a Penn State team went four games without a win was in 2004, when the Lions finished 4-7. After losing 20-19 in sloppy fashion to Maryland on Saturday, the Lions (4-4, 1-4 Big Ten)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Frustrated over not having won a football game in six weeks, Penn State tried to keep its focus Saturday after Maryland stood up its captains by refusing to shake their hands at the coin toss. The defense and kicker Sam Ficken did a good job of following through, but the offense and the punt team once again did not, and the Terrapins gladly ended their long streak of bad luck against the Nittany Lions with a 20-19 victory on Brad Craddock's 43-yard field goal with 51 seconds remaining.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State-Maryland isn't a rivalry by any stretch of the imagination, but it has potential. The Nittany Lions and the Terrapins play in bordering states, compete for the much of the same recruits, have past connections on each coaching staff, and now will play each other every year in the Big Ten's East Division. But one thing is holding this pairing back from becoming a game worth looking forward to: winning on both sides. And for that, don't blame Penn State.
