Argentina pulled off a victory that until recently seemed nearly impossible. The South American nation upset the United States, 87-80, last night in the World Championships, the first loss for a U.S. basketball team in 59 games since the Americans began sending NBA players to international events in 1992. The defeat did not knock the United States out of the tournament, but the team will now be seeded lower in the medal round, where the nations could meet again. The United States plays Yugoslavia in a quarterfinal tonight.

Radnor reeled off a 15-2 run in the final three minutes without its leading scorer in the lineup and stunned visiting Marple Newtown, 48-47, in Central League girls' basketball on Friday night.

Williamson, a sophomore who had nine fourth-quarter points, scored off a pass from Quinn for the game-winning layup with 10 seconds left.

Carl Lane will be pushing 50 when he completes the minimum sentence he got yesterday for the rape of a babysitter last year. He's 19 now. "I won't have a life!" Lane complained to the judge "I'm begging you. Could you reconsider? I can't believe - 28 years?" Common Pleas Judge Jane C. Greenspan, who stunned the admitted Chestnut Hill rapist yesterday by imposing a 28- to 80-year prison term, said he could appeal if he didn't like the sentence. Lane had escaped from a New Jersey juvenile detention facility about two weeks before the Nov. 23, 1987, attack.

INDIANAPOLIS - Texas A & M's defense was good enough to upset two No. 1 seeds. It will find out tomorrow night if it is good enough to win a women's national championship when the Aggies face Notre Dame, a 72-63 upset winner over Connecticut. Sydney Colson drove the length of the floor and found a cutting Tyra White for a layup with 3.3 seconds left to give the Aggies a thrilling, 63-62 victory over Stanford last night. The teams traded leads five times in the final minute, capping A & M's remarkable rally from a 10-point deficit in the final 6 minutes.

Ricky Baker is a bad kid. He's trouble. Big trouble. The overweight orphan, who looks a bit like Cartman from South Park , has given a series of foster parents so much attitude over the years that no one will take him. He's so bad, he doesn't think twice about spitting, throwing stuff, writing graffiti, and shoplifting. "He's a bad egg," says his case worker, Paula (Rachel House), to the one couple left in all of New Zealand who agrees to foster the boy: Bella (Rima Te Wiata)

Last season, ABC proved it could outmatch FX and HBO when it came to the anthology drama, with the superb first season of American Crime . The second season premieres at 10 p.m. Wednesday. Unlike HBO's True Detective , which reached dizzying heights of sublimity in its freshman year only to crash and burn in mediocrity the following season, American Crime returns with an equally powerful, compelling, and intelligent story. Created, written, and directed by Oscar-winning writer John Ridley ( 12 Years a Slave )

MANY ISSUES spring out of the stunning news that the Eagles fired head coach/general manager/god of football Chip Kelly on Tuesday night. My first thought as a media member who routinely endured Kelly's superiority complex was that he must have been an even bigger jerk than his public persona clearly indicated. This move was so far out of character for Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. He has rarely, if ever, been reactionary in his more than two decades of owning the Birds. Everything, sometimes to a fault, seemed to be thought out, evaluated and re-evaluated before a decision was reached.

PHOENIX - New year, new 76ers? Maybe so. Jump-starting the final three games of what has been a disastrous 2015, the Sixers met the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. The hope was to begin the final week of the season on a high note. That's exactly what happened as the Sixers took a 111-104 victory. The much-needed win improved them to 2-30. It also snapped their 12-game losing streak and marked their first road win in 24 games, dating to last season.

It's rare for one guard to have a big offensive game against Atlantic City's trademark tough defense. It's twice as unusual for two guards to have their way against the Vikings in a pressure-packed game. "I can't remember the last time two guards combined for 55 points against us," Atlantic City coach Gene Allen said Sunday after his team dropped an 80-76 decision in overtime to Timber Creek. Allen's math was off, but his point was on the mark. Timber Creek senior guards Randy Bell and Caleb Bowser combined for 59 points to lead the Chargers to the early-season signature victory in a clash of top-10 teams at the Ocean City PBA Tipoff Weekend showcase.

The most striking thing at Union Transfer on Wednesday night wasn't Joanna Newsom's performance, although her intricate harp-centered compositions and protean vocal delivery never failed to surprise. It was the quiet. With Newsom on harp or grand piano and a three-piece band playing keyboards, drums, and a variety of stringed instruments familiar and exotic, the ensemble's collective volume never rose above a low roar. But the sold-out crowd stayed hushed, barely talking above a whisper, even between songs.

When former Inquirer writer Buzz Bissinger made the media rounds after penning the Vanity Fair cover piece announcing to the world Caitlyn Jenner's transition, reporters kept asking him how much he knew about transgender issues before working on the story. (I know, because I was one of those reporters.) He didn't know much, he told me and others he talked with, but what he did know he learned from Amazon's Transparent , the second season of which debuts Friday. Transparent was one of the first shows to present a transgender person as a human being - not comic relief or crazy, but a member of a family whose decisions affect not only her, but everyone else in her orbit.

The visiting Blue Devils turned a showdown between teams ranked in the top 3 in South Jersey into a showcase of football dominance, controlling every aspect of the game before a huge crowd at John Oberg Field.
