In her 17 years of coaching that have resulted in 17 straight state championships, Danyle Heilig has seen quite a few standout players grace her Eastern field hockey team. But few have compared to Maddie Morano, the South Jersey Player of the Year. "She's obviously the complete package," Heilig said. "She's probably the best player I've ever coached as far as end line to end line, sideline to sideline, offensively, defensively and transitionally. " The senior has not lost in her four years at Eastern.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane said her office will join the Federal Trade Commission in a bid to block the proposed merger of Penn State Hershey Medical Center and PinnacleHealth System. Combined, the two systems would control 64 percent of the market in the Harrisburg region, including Dauphin, Cumberland, Perry and Lebanon Counties, Kane's office said. An FTC complaint to be filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania alleges that the two systems "compete vigorously on price, quality of care, and services provided, both for inclusion in commercial health plan networks and to attract patients from one another," according to Kane.

While Penn State answered one question Sunday by accepting a bid to the TaxSlayer Bowl for a matchup against Georgia, it - in the person of head coach James Franklin - responded to another question about whether a new offensive coordinator will be in place by the time the game is played on Jan. 2 in Jacksonville, Fla. "I hope to have the position filled in the next week and a half to two weeks or so," Franklin said Sunday night on a conference call....

Navy basketball coach Ed DeChellis gathered his team Wednesday night before its game against Penn. DeChellis, who was the head coach for eight seasons at Penn State, asked his players to raise their hands if they had ever won a game at the Palestra. No one budged. DeChellis rephrased his question, asking his team if anyone had even played at Penn's historic gym. Not a hand was raised. "So I told them we had a chance to do something that we had not done before," the coach said after his team knocked off Penn, 65-59.

Penn State freshman running back Saquon Barkley earned second-team all-Big Ten honors in the offensive awards announced by the conference Tuesday night. Barkley was voted to the second team by coaches and media. The 5-foot-11, 222-pounder from Copley, Pa., rushed for 1,007 yards during the regular season, a Penn State record for a freshman and fourth in the Big Ten, despite missing two games and part of a third with an injury. He averaged 6.1 yards per carry and scored seven touchdowns.

Defensive end Carl Nassib, who came to Penn State as a walk-on, started his fifth and final year in the program known by few outside Happy Valley, but a dedicated mind-set and a ferocious way of practicing and playing earned him much notice as the nation's leader in sacks. The Big Ten coaches certainly noticed and voted Nassib, a West Chester resident and Malvern Prep graduate, as the conference's defensive player of the year. The announcement was made Monday night on the Big Ten Network.

Penn State head coach James Franklin likes to say he is constantly evaluating the football program, and he repeated it after Saturday's one-sided loss to Michigan State, another game in which the offense struggled to score. "We're evaluating every single day," Franklin said. "The evaluation will happen between now and the bowl and then after the bowl. " Evidently, it didn't take long for Franklin to evaluate an offense that has been one of the worst in the nation during his two years at Penn State.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - When Penn State scored just before halftime Saturday at Spartan Stadium to cut into its deficit against No. 6 Michigan State, the Nittany Lions ran to the locker room with some optimism, and their newfound fans from Ohio State had a reason to be encouraged. But in the second half, the Nittany Lions played terribly, perhaps their worst half of the two-year James Franklin era, and the Spartans showed why they deserved to go to the Big Ten championship game. Michigan State (11-1, 7-1 Big Ten)

EAST LANSING, Mich. - The time is drawing near for Christian Hackenberg to think about his future, whether he will return to Penn State for his senior year next season or leave for the NFL draft. But for Hackenberg, the Nittany Lions' starting quarterback and leader, the future consists of resting up and then diving headlong into preparations for his team's bowl game. "Again, I'm not really thinking about my future too much," he said after the Lions were crushed, 55-16, by No. 6 Michigan State at Spartan Stadium.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Much of the attention directed at the Big Ten seems to fall on Ohio State and Michigan because of their history of success, but the often overlooked Michigan State Spartans just keep chugging along - and winning. The Spartans are 34-4 since the start of the 2013 season, the third-most wins in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Their 63 wins since 2010 are the most in the Big Ten over that period. Of course, people might say they've been a little lucky this season.
