Will Cummings missed all 40 minutes when Temple played at Cincinnati last month. He did not leave the court for a single second in the rematch Tuesday night, and you don't have to look any further than that to understand why there was a 47-point turnaround. A nagging left-leg injury sidelined Cummings for the entire game when the Bearcats pinned a 31-point loss on Cummings' Owls at Cincinnati's Fifth Third Arena. "It was very difficult," the Temple point guard said after providing 21 points and so much more in Temple's 75-59 win at the Liacouras Center.

A West Philadelphia woman who had told police she became enraged arguing about her roommate's personal hygiene and housekeeping was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on a murder charge in the beating death of 62-year-old Saundra Barley. Denise Taylor, 57, first told police Barley had been killed by three masked men who broke into their apartment on 53d Street just north of Market Street about 3 a.m. last Nov. 14. But under questioning by homicide detectives, Taylor described a daylong argument - it began during breakfast and continued well past midnight - that turned physical and ended with Barley's death.

When raising campaign cash last year, prosecutors say, former Pennsylvania Treasurer Rob McCord had a simple and crude message: If he lost his bid for governor, he'd still be treasurer for two years. And you didn't want to be an enemy of the treasurer. That was the picture that emerged Monday as McCord was charged with extortion. Filed days after his abrupt resignation, the charging documents recounted how he allegedly shook down the managing partner of a Philadelphia law firm and a Western Pennsylvania property-management company for campaign contributions by threatening to disrupt their business with the state.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane made repeated false statements to justify shutting down an undercover sting, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said Tuesday as he announced bribery charges against two lawmakers in the corruption case he revived. Williams said Kane had irresponsibly and without evidence claimed that the investigation had been marred by racial targeting. In fact, the district attorney said, a Philadelphia grand jury marshaled testimony and documents from within Kane's own office showing that her top aides rejected the idea that racial prejudice affected the case.

Anger and anguish over police killings in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y., continue to bubble up across the region, with city school students, teachers, and the teachers' union president speaking out Friday.

At midmorning, 100 students at Masterman High School assembled in a first-floor hallway during their lunch period. They sat or lay down silently, some holding "Black Lives Matter" signs, others closing their eyes or staring straight ahead.
