La Salle High's Amar Stukes, a senior point guard, has committed to play basketball for La Salle University. "I just thought I had a great relationship with Coach G [La Salle coach John Giannini], La Salle is close to home, and it's part of the Big Five," the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder said. Last season for the Explorers, Stukes averaged nearly 14 points and was a first-team all-Catholic League selection. The 17-year-old also gave serious consideration to Drexel, Fairfield, and Binghamton.

Last beam placed at new WTC site NEW YORK - A final steel beam was lifted Monday atop a new World Trade Center skyscraper - the first expected to open at the site since the twin towers were decimated in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. With BeBe Winans singing "God Bless America," workers raised their hard hats in tribute as the mammoth beam rose slowly into the Manhattan sky, swaying from a steel rope hoisted by a crane. A U.S. flag attached to the bottom of the beam fluttered above several hundred spectators at the topping-off ceremony.

Jordan Reed, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior wing guard at Wissahickon, has committed to play his college basketball at Binghamton. Reed, an Inquirer fourth-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection, also considered Long Island, Canisius, Wagner, Robert Morris, and Siena. Earlier this week, Binghamton tabbed Scranton native Tommy Dempsey, who had coached at Rider for seven seasons, to replace former Temple star Mark Macon as coach. "Rider had recruited me, so I'm familiar with Coach Dempsey," Reed said.

THREE COLLEGES based in Florida had been making overtures to Britton Lee because of his basketball skills. Monday night, however, the 5-10, 175-pound guard from Roman Catholic made an oral commitment to Robert Morris, in Pittsburgh. That might seem like a curious move, especially since Lee is a junior, but it makes every last bit of sense to him. "Why am I doing this? Because of all the loyalty they've shown," Lee said. "They've been after me since 2 years ago. And they were my very first offer.

And any time they've been able to see me play [in AAU events], they've done that, too. "With my AAU team, Team Final, I've recently been to Minneapolis, Minnesota and Hampton, Virginia.

After showing strides early in the season, La Salle suffered a setback Friday in a 51-44 loss to Robert Morris at the Palestra as part of the Philly Hoop Group Classic. Even though they held a distinct height advantage, the Explorers (2-3) were outrebounded, 45-30. Their shooting wasn't much better, just 31 percent from the field, including 3 for 22 from three-point range. La Salle coach John Giannini said the rebounding margin was the "biggest problem he had" and a "gigantic problem.

In a game littered with turnovers and poor shooting, Robert Morris finally pulled away as they knocked off La Salle, 51-44, at the Palestra on Friday afternoon. Ramon Galloway missed the first of a one-and-one with 25 seconds left as the Explores failed to cut the Robert Morris lead to one. The Colonials were fouled on the inbounds pass and sank both free throws to put the game away. Trailing by three, Earl Pettis lunged for a steal and instead was assessed a foul to send Robert Morris to the line.
