When John Bochanski was 7, he would sit on the porch at night in Washington Township and watch as his grandfather pointed out the constellations. By 12, he was reading everything he could find about astronomy. The following year, he saved up more than $400 from his Gloucester County paper route to buy an 8-inch telescope. Lately he has been setting his sights quite a bit farther: more than 5 quintillion (five followed by 18 zeroes) miles away.

THERE'S NO TELLING where Aaron Walton-Moss might be, or what he'd be doing, if Cabrini College hadn't, mostly by happenstance, come into his life 3 years ago. But reality suggests it probably wouldn't be good. "I mean, just growing up, where I'm from, there's a lot of stuff going on," he said. "And I had it better than a lot of other kids. "But every day I wake up and I'm thankful I'm alive. " The 6-2 junior guard, who almost assuredly would have been playing at a higher level had he been nearly as proficient in the classroom as he was with a basketball at Camden High, is averaging 26.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists, all team highs, for the third-ranked team in Division III.

As part of the senior-day festivities, the public address announcer read a letter to Kourahanis' mother and father, who greeted him with hugs on the other side of the field.
