For 15 minutes a day, Tim Frazier, Penn State's senior point guard, finds a quiet place, switches on a podcast, and meditates. Along with his teammates, Frazier, the team's all-time leader in assists, has found that practicing mindfulness meditation - focusing on the breath with his eyes closed and becoming aware of his thoughts without judging them - has amped up his performance on the court. "The game moves so fast, it's hard to focus on the here and now," said Frazier, who is pretty fleet of foot himself.

Longtime Eagles cornerback Bobby Taylor yesterday was released by the Seattle Seahawks. Taylor was drafted in the second round by the Eagles in 1995 and played for them nine seasons. He left as a free agent after the 2003 season, signing a 4-year, $11.3 million deal with Seattle. Waiting until at least June 1 to release Taylor allows the remaining $2.25 million from his signing bonus to count against the salary cap next year instead of this year.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - A slip of the tongue gave away Atlanta coach Mike Smith's focus. Smith was just starting his review Monday of the Falcons' 30-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs when it became clear his thoughts were on this week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Were the Seattle Seahawks suffering a Super Bowl hangover? Their season appeared to be slipping away before things slowly began to change. The Seahawks started the season 3-3, but they enter the game against the Eagles on Sunday with an 8-4 mark and renewed confidence. So what changed? "I think just having to step up, making sure that everybody was on the same page and just continued to work hard," third-year quarterback Russell Wilson said Wednesday in a conference call with Philadelphia media.

SEATTLE - Russell Wilson threw a disputed 24-yard touchdown to Golden Tate on the final play of the game, and the Seattle Seahawks rallied to beat the Green Bay Packers, 14-12, on Monday night in a controversial ending. Wilson scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as time expired. Tate shoved Green Bay's Sam Shields out of the way, then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession. It was ruled on the field as a touchdown and after a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott came out from under the hood and announced "the ruling on the field stands" as CenturyLink Field erupted in celebration.

CHARLES BARKLEY is the best. The former Sixer, who is now an NBA commentator for TNT, got off a great line at the expense of Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. while reporting on highlights from the Warriors-Pacers game on Monday night. It was recently revealed that in November a woman told police she saw Winslow "pleasuring himself" while in his SUV in a Target parking lot in East Hanover Township, N.J. Police responded and arrested Winslow for possession of synthetic marijuana.

CLEVELAND - The Super Bowl, especially the closing seconds of the game, can be a great teaching point for the 76ers. Undrafted and largely unknown rookie free-agent cornerback Malcolm Butler sealed the 28-24 victory for the New England Patriots. With the Seattle Seahawks at the 1-yard line, Butler stepped in front of Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and intercepted Russell Wilson's pass. "You know, you study the whole thing with [Butler knowing] the play was going to come," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The interception that changed Malcolm Butler's life and entered Super Bowl history happened on a play that resulted in a reception during practice. Butler, a rookie cornerback for the New England Patriots, had prepared for the Seattle Seahawks' much-debated pass from the 1-yard line during the two weeks leading up the Patriots' 28-24 Super Bowl victory. He studied it and the Patriots practiced it. But in practice, reserve receiver Josh Boyce made the catch against Butler.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The New England Patriots experienced the agony before, and they were one yard away from living it again. They've been on the field in the Super Bowl when the opponent makes the magical drive and the improbable catch, when the legacies of quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick were interrupted by last-minute defeats. Except on Sunday, all the magic that brought the Seattle Seahawks one yard away from the Super Bowl vanished when Russell Wilson threw a pass that landed in the hands of Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, a stunning and memorable end to the Patriots' 28-24 win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.

PHOENIX - The confidence that helped Richard Sherman become one of the NFL's elite cornerbacks for the Seattle Seahawks was born in February 2009, when Sherman switched from offense to defense at Stanford. During the second practice of spring drills, Sherman became convinced he was the best cornerback on the field. Never mind that it was only his second day playing the position. He determined that such a mind-set was a requirement to play the position, and the bravado begot the production.
