Anthony Lubrano, who has been waging a high-profile campaign for an alumni seat on the Pennsylvania State University board of trustees, has been featured for years in the school's baseball media guide as a four-time letter-winner from 1979 to 1982. And his application for trustee describes him as a "varsity baseball player at his alma mater. " The problem is that Lubrano, 51, a major donor whose name is on Penn State's baseball complex, acknowledges that he neither lettered nor played in an official game.

A mere 43 days ago, the Phillies and Yankees started a little trade. Yesterday, they finally got around to finishing it. The identity of the player to be named - much, much, much later, as it turned out - is (better sit down now) . . . Charlie Hayes. Yesterday, the Yankees finally forced themselves to clear a roster spot for him by designating reliever Alan Mills for assignment. And thus completed the longest, if not exactly the biggest, deal Phillies general manager Lee Thomas ever made.

Dan Rooney has passed leadership of the Pittsburgh Steelers to his son the same way he became head of the franchise - very quietly. With little to note the change - except for barely noticeable changes in the team media guide - Dan Rooney named son Art Rooney II as his replacement as team president. "I just thought it was time," Dan Rooney, 71, said in yesterday's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Art has been involved with a lot of the business of the team. He was very much involved in the building of Heinz Field.

The Nashville Predators acquired the rights to Ed Belfour, a two-time Vezina Trophy winner as the National Hockey League's top goaltender, in a trade with the Dallas Stars yesterday. The Predators also received right winger Cameron Mann. The Stars received left winger David Gosselin and a fifth-round pick in the 2003 NHL draft. Nashville will retain negotiating rights with Belfour until Monday, when the four-time all-star becomes an unrestricted free agent. If he signs with another team, the Predators would receive a compensatory draft pick.

THE STUFF YOU SEE here might look like a bunch of junk, but to us in the Daily News sports department, these are treasures. The move to our new office at 8th & Market has allowed us to take stock of what we've collected. We've been at Broad & Callowhill since 1964, and, buried beneath the dust and mouse droppings was a cache of memories. Today, Friday the 13th, of all days, is our last day here on North Broad Street and the building services people kept sending threatening emails to either pack up the stuff or get rid of it. But before we ship it along (or toss it in the recycle bin)

In 1940, nine years before Mike Schmidt was born, there was another player whose 500th home run had a Philadelphia flavor. His name: Jimmie Foxx, of the Red Sox, a longtime Philadelphia Athletics star before being dealt to Boston by the penurious Connie Mack. His 500th homer: a solo shot off the Athletics' George Caster on Sept. 24 at Philadelphia's Shibe Park. Foxx, who was the youngest player (32) to enter the 500-homer club, hit his historic blast during the Red Sox's 16-8 victory in the first game of a double-header.

Rick Brunson has never been guaranteed anything in the NBA, most notably a contract. The 1995 Temple graduate has been a true survivor, living a year-to-year NBA existence, which is now in its eighth season. Brunson, 32, a reserve point guard with the Los Angeles Clippers, has played for six teams, including two, the New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls, twice. He also has played for the same coach, Mike Dunleavy, in two cities. With all that movement, one thing has remained a constant in Brunson's career: the lack of a fully-guaranteed contract to start a season.

Few people outside Philadelphia are familiar with Temple guard Khadija Bowens, whose picture doesn't appear in the Owls' regular-season media guide. She was still working her way back from academic ineligibility in the fall when it was printed. "A lot of people don't see me in the media guide, but when I get in the game, they'll know who I am," Bowens said, smiling, as she sat in the hotel Temple is staying at as it prepares for today's NCAA tournament first-round game against Louisiana Tech.

BRANDON AUSTIN is often so laid-back, you'd think his sport of choice would be golf. Or maybe even chess, if a special exemption could be granted to make that qualify. When he offers answers to questions, sometimes he does so with a voice that makes a whisper sound ear-splitting. Ah, but there are also stretches when his basketball play is eye-popping, and that was why so many Division I colleges wanted to add him to the fold. Austin, a 6-6, 180-pound senior, does his playing for Imhotep Charter and his next stop will be Providence.

It happens all the time. An unheralded player comes out of nowhere and has instant success. Then he becomes comfortable and struggles mightily after expectations increase. Temple's Levi Brown is trying to avoid becoming that player. Eleven months after entering the 2011 season as a backup, the nose tackle is listed as one of the Big East's rising stars in the conference's media guide. College Sports Madness and Phil Steele are also high on the 6-foot-2, 300-pound redshirt junior.

SEVERAL TIMES during the Sunday morning session of Eagles rookie camp, coaches exhorted confused, hesitant players to pick up the tempo. Mental and physical fatigue were setting in, as rookies grappled with their second day in a new offense or defense. When the practice was over and players fled the sunny practice fields for the air-conditioned shade of the locker room, defensive coordinator Juan Castillo gathered three linebackers, including second-round draft pick Mychal Kendricks.

Big-time players live for big-time spots. For Dionte Christmas and Temple, it didn't get much larger than last Saturday, when Top 10 Tennessee made its way to North Broad Street for an ESPN tilt. The Owls won comfortably. Not shockingly, it was their 6-5 senior guard who induced most of the carnage. Christmas had 30 points - in the second half. That gave him 35 for the afternoon, two off his career high. In the decisive run, he drilled five consecutive threes. After scoring nine in his team's previous 90 minutes.

THE BALLYHOOED Mideast "peace conference" in Annapolis is approaching, and pundits are jumping in like players on a loose football. Here's a guide to help readers follow it. Peace: Dictionary.com defines it as "the normal, nonwarring condition of a nation, group of nations, or the world. " Peace process: Defined as "the diplomatic and political efforts to negotiate a resolution to a conflict. " "Peace process" is not the same as peace. Refugee: Defined as "a person who flees for refuge or safety, esp. to a foreign country, as in time of political upheaval, war, etc. " The 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees: This U.N. document directs "That Governments continue to receive refugees in their territories . . . in order that these refugees may find asylum and the possibility of resettlement.
