According to Centre County Court documents filed Monday, Davis, 20, of Rosedale, Md., was charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana for personal use along with use/possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. He also was cited for buying alcohol as a minor, a summary offense.

Penn State may have its full complement of football scholarships back after the lifting of NCAA sanctions, but that doesn't mean James Franklin is nearly finished building up the roster that was limited by the scholarship limits of previous years. As Franklin succinctly said Tuesday during his Center City stop of the Penn State coaches' caravan: "We're still out of whack at some positions. " Franklin said the Nittany Lions have "81 or 82" players on scholarship, just a few below the NCAA limit of 85. But right now, most of the scholarships belong to underclassmen; he said the Lions have just 11 scholarship seniors on their roster.

PENN STATE and Temple open the football season against each other on Sept. 5 in Lincoln Financial Field. The teams are also scheduled to play in 2016 in State College. It's unclear when they might meet again. The Big Ten announced two years ago that each of its member schools would begin playing nine conference games a season in 2016, the first time that has been the case since 1984. That means that those schools will be limited to three nonconference games, and that the future is hazy for the PSU-Temple series, which dates back to 1931 and has seen the teams square off 43 times.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State University's trustees agreed Friday to add four female board members, increasing the board's gender diversity, an issue that several female members had raised. But the way things stand, come July the state's flagship university will lose its only African American trustees. Both Merck CEO Ken Frazier, the board's liaison to former FBI Director Louis Freeh, whose investigative report faulted university leaders for their handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal, and Adam Taliaferro, a lawyer and former Penn State football player, are leaving because their terms are up. The board also has only one Hispanic member, acting state Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, and one Asian American, David Han, vice president of the department of surgery at Hershey Medical Center.

The Penn men's golf team had to wait until near the end of the Golf Channel's NCAA selection show Monday to find out where it would play its regional of the NCAA Division I championships, leading coach Bob Heintz to sweat a little bit. "I was getting nervous thinking they were figuring out a way to keep us out," Heintz joked. The Quakers, with an automatic bid for winning the Ivy League, were assigned to the regional at the Sagamore Club in Noblesville, Ind. Temple junior Brandon Matthews also had to wait, but he will make a return visit to the regionals as an individual competitor, heading to The Course at Yale in New Haven, Conn.

Alexander Scalamandre had just scored for St. Joseph's Prep when Haverford School's Grant Ament shared a glance with a few teammates. Scalamandre's goal, which came just 11 seconds after Kevin Stump had scored, capped a five-goal spurt that tied the nonleague lacrosse game at 5-5. Unfortunately for the Prep, it also got the attention of the undefeated Fords. "There was a point after they scored that fifth goal that I looked at Forry Smith and Tucker McBride and was like, 'All right, time to turn it on,' " Ament said.
