John Rochford of Mainland High in Atlantic County, considered among the best high school linemen in the area, has made a verbal commitment to attend the University of Miami. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound Rochford told the Miami coaching staff of his decision late Saturday. During the spring, he had made unofficial visits to Miami and Penn State. Rochford said that he was also considering North Carolina, Maryland, Boston College, Iowa and Wisconsin. According to NCAA rules, a high school football recruit may not officially sign a letter of intent until Feb. 5. "I really liked the school and loved the coaching staff," Rochford said.

Dwayne Hendricks, the all-American defensive end from Millville High, has made an oral commitment to attend the University of Miami on a football scholarship, Millville coach Dave Heck said last night. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Hendricks, The Inquirer's South Jersey defensive player of the year last fall, had narrowed his choices down to Miami or Virginia. He also visited Iowa and Michigan. Miami's defensive linemen are coached by Greg Mark, the former Pennsauken standout. "Dwayne's always gotten along well with Greg, and Miami is really the place he's always wanted to go," Heck said.

MIAMI - Once-woeful Miami won for the fourth time in its last five games on Sunday, beating Oakland 34-14. Reggie Bush ran for 100 yards and a touchdown, Matt Moore had a hand in two TDs and Kevin Burnett returned an interception 34 yards for Miami's final score. The surge came after the Dolphins (4-8) lost their first seven games. In the past five weeks they've outscored opponents 139-54, with the lone loss a one-point defeat at Dallas on Thanksgiving. "We've been on a wild ride here," Moore said.

Brooklawn has lost its opening game at the 68th American Legion World Series, in Boyertown. But coach Joe Barth and the New Jersey team's star pitcher, Jack Marcellus, say the young squad still has a solid shot at staying alive in the double- elimination tournament and winning the national title Tuesday at Bear Stadium. A strong and experienced Miami team used one big inning yesterday to slip past Brooklawn, 5-3, dropping Post 72 into the losers' bracket. Brooklawn was scheduled to play in the second game of a doubleheader this morning against Bedford, Va., which lost last night to Salem, Ore., 4-1. "We still have plenty of pitching, and that's what you need in the losers' bracket," Barth said.

Everything is happening in threes for the Villanova women's basketball team. The Wildcats, who live and die with the three-point shot, are hitting them with ease to stay among the leaders in the crowded Big East race. Well, actually, 'Nova remains in the logjam of teams fighting for second behind top-ranked and unbeaten Connecticut. Last night, junior Katie Davis became trey-happy and Villanova overwhelmed Miami, 80-52, at the Pavilion. Davis reached a career high in three-pointers made after she shot 7 for 11 from beyond the arc. Going 9 for 13 from the field, she finished with 27 points, her career high.

The University of Miami's executive committee of the board of trustees will meet today to discuss moving from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference. The university also will host the first of three ACC site visits Friday, the next step in a likely relocation that could drastically change the landscape of college athletics. Miami's executive committee will eventually vote on whether to join the ACC, but university officials don't expect it before the site visit. Teams of ACC officials including an athletic director, faculty representative and conference office official will travel to Miami tomorrow and tour the school's facilities Friday, according to a university source.

For the final 42 seconds, Wally Szczerbiak had to stand and watch. When the buzzer sounded, he was back in the middle of things, just as he'd been all night. Szczerbiak scored 29 points and host Miami of Ohio withstood a late rally by seventh-ranked Xavier, holding on for an 80-72 victory last night. Hundreds of fans chanted "Overrated," stormed the court and surrounded Szczerbiak and his teammates after the RedHawks' first victory over a Top 10 team in 24 years. "I wanted this one so bad," said Szczerbiak, a junior forward who fouled out with 42 seconds left and Miami (5-1)

Defensive lineman Nate Robinson, one of the highest-rated recruits in the country last year, has decided not to enroll at the University of Miami and will instead play at Rutgers. Robinson, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound tackle from Irvington, N.J., signed with Rutgers on Wednesday, after Miami would not declare him academically eligible. Robinson's SAT score of 800 meets the NCAA minimum for high school students with a 3.0 grade point average but is 20 points shy of Miami's institutional standard.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Jay Wright knows that Ryan Arcidiacono has a knack for giving Villanova what he thinks the team needs when the game starts, whether it's setting up plays for his teammates or getting up in an opponent's grill on defense. But Thursday night, with the Wildcats in the Sweet 16 for the first time in seven years, Arcidiacono, the senior guard playing in a record 141st game, came out against Miami looking at the basket and firing, setting the tone for what would be a third consecutive romp in the NCAA South Regional.

Here is a look at Thursday's NCAA South Regional semifinal, set to tip off at 7:10 p.m. Villanova keys The Wildcats excelled last weekend in winning their first two NCAA games by an average of 24.5 points. They shot 58.6 percent from the field and 48.9 percent from three-point range and held the opponent to 41 percent shooting. So it's a matter of making Miami off balance by keeping its defense stretched out with the threat of the three-point shot while driving to the hoop on occasion.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - By early Saturday morning, eight teams will be alive for the 2016 national championship. None of the other seven could possibly be playing better than Villanova. The Wildcats were really good in Brooklyn. They were great Thursday night at the KFC Yum! Center against a really good team from America's best conference. Miami was good enough to beat Virginia, Louisville, Notre Dame and Duke. Other than what turned out to be a mirage first-half flurry of four threes in 2 minutes to get close, the Hurricanes were never in the game.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Had Ja'Quan Newton made up his mind a little more quickly during his recruitment, the former Neumann-Goretti star might have been playing his college basketball on the Main Line instead of in the South Florida sunshine. But Villanova coach Jay Wright had one scholarship offer to make to both Newton and Baltimore high school star Phil Booth. As Wright recalled this week, "We needed to get a high-level guard and we told both of them, whichever one commits first. " Booth made the move and got the scholarship.

ADAM FISHER was coached at Central Bucks East High by Derek Wright, Jay's brother. His first work out of college was as a Villanova graduate manager, a job that took him to the 2009 Final Four. Thursday night in Louisville, Ky., Fisher will be on the sideline at the KFC Yum! Center when the Wildcats play Miami in a Sweet 16 game. He is in his first season as a Miami assistant coach. "It's been an incredible experience," Fisher said. "We have such a great senior class . . . We're just enjoying the ride they're all taking us on. " When the Hurricanes were on their way back home Sunday afternoon after winning two NCAA games in Providence, R.I. on Thursday and Saturday, Fisher kept asking the flight attendant for updates on Villanova-Iowa.

In Howie Roseman's telling, the biggest trade of the NFL offseason so far came about because of a couple of well-timed takeout orders in Indianapolis. At the NFL combine last month, the hotel suite for the Eagles' player-personnel staff and coaches was just two doors down from the Miami Dolphins'. Dinnertime rolled around. "There are a couple of places in Indy that are really good," Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, said Thursday. "So we were trying each other's food.

BY THE TIME Howie Roseman stepped away from his sizzling speakerphone Wednesday night, the Eagles had taken steps to get stronger in three important areas: quarterback, offensive line and safety. They'd added a linebacker to replace one they'd traded, and gained depth at corner. The count of defensive players who'd worked for new coordinator Jim Schwartz in Buffalo in 2014 was up to three. Not to mention, they'd moved up five spots in the first round of the NFL draft. It was quite a day, and it started early.

MIAMI - Perhaps the biggest question surrounding the 76ers is: When will Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel return? "I don't really know," coach Brett Brown said of his injured post players. Okafor missed his fourth straight game Sunday as the Sixers lost, 103-98, to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. The rookie bruised his right shin on Feb. 28. Noel missed his second straight game with a bruised right knee. The center was hurt late in the second quarter Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets.
