The Delaware Valley College football team will face a familiar foe in Saturday's first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs. The Middle Atlantic Conference champion Aggies (9-1) will host Liberty League champion Susquehanna (8-2) in a noon game at James Work Memorial Stadium. The teams last met in 2006 during Susquehanna's final season as a MAC member. The Crusaders won that game, 17-10. "We know Susquehanna," said Delaware Valley coach Jim Clements. "It will be a good game.

Former Villa Maria Academy standout Sarah Lauro was named to the all-tournament team after leading the Susquehanna women's volleyball team to a 2-1 record in the Franklin and Marshall Invitational last weekend. The Crusaders' loss came at the hands of the host school in the tourney championship game. Lauro, one of two Susquehanna players to make the Middle Atlantic Conference all-star team last season, led the Crusaders with 29 kills and 10 solo blocks in the tourney. The sophomore middle blocker also had three service aces.

Once a defensive player, Susquehanna quarterback Todd Coolidge now spends his time harassing members of his former fraternity. Until yesterday, when Widener hounded him so thoroughly that he probably wished he had remained on defense. Widener, sacking the record-breaking junior quarterback four times, upset Susquehanna, 29-18, in a key Middle Atlantic Conference game. The Pioneers improved to 6-1 (5-1 in the conference), while the Crusaders dropped to 6-1 (5-1) and ended their 17-game winning streak.

The Susquehanna football team's starting offensive line averages 6-foot-2 and 251 pounds per man. It's anchored on one end by senior tight end Brian Papson, a graduate of Downingtown. Two weeks ago the offensive line, in what is believed to be only the second time in Middle Atlantic Conference history, was named as a unit to the conference's weekly football honor roll. The line paved the way for an MAC single-game rushing mark of 455 yards in a 48-3 romp past Lebanon Valley. With Papson, a 6-1, 215-pound senior, doing his share of blocking, the Crusaders rolled to 27 first downs while keeping possession of the ball for 40 minutes and 46 seconds.

Giulia Umile, a Gwynedd-Mercy Academy graduate, was named first-team Middle Atlantic Conference goalie and earned the MAC player-of-the-week award in women's lacrosse for April 24 to 30. The freshman goalie had a record-setting year for Susquehanna (13-3). Umile made 45 saves, allowing 21 goals for a 7.00 goals-per-game average, as her team capped its season with three wins. She had a personal-best 18 saves in a 13-8 victory April 26 against Muhlenberg. She also made 13 saves in a 17-3 win April 28 against Messiah and played a crucial role in an 11-10 victory over Philadelphia University on April 29. "Everything Giulia has gotten, she's earned through all the hard work she's put in," Crusaders coach Gina Lucido said.

Senior Nicole Crescenzo set a career record for digs as the Susquehanna women's volleyball team defeated Messiah, 3-2, in a Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth League match Sept. 16. Crescenzo, a graduate of West Chester Henderson, had 22 digs in the match, raising her total to 857, passing the old mark of 851 set by Julie Dills (1991-1993). Since that match, the outside hitter/middle blocker has raised her career total to 880. She is second on the team in digs this season with 92, trailing leader Christy Herrmann, a graduate of Haverford High, by six. Crescenzo, who has played in 301 games in her college career, leads the team this season in service aces with 24 and is fourth in kills with 37. "Nicole is a great captain and works hard on her game each day," coach Bill Switala said.

In a game that may decide the eventual winner of the Middle Atlantic Conference, Susquehanna and Widener will present a stark contrast in quarterback situations tomorrow. Susquehanna quarterback Todd Coolidge is unquestionably brilliant, while Widener quarterback Don Stoffere is just, well, questionable. Stoffere, who has completed 21 of 31 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns, suffered a deep bruise on his right arm and shoulder when he dived over the goal line in a 19-0 victory against Albright last week.

Susquehanna men's basketball swingman Gerald Ross lost six games to injury last season but still managed to lead the team in several categories. Although he was a Division III preseason all-American pick by both The Sporting News and DIII News, he did not play in any of the Crusaders' five first-semester games. That's because he chose, for personal reasons, to be a part-time student for the period. The Chester resident (Bristol High School) hopes that will change with the end of the semester.

At the conclusion of tomorrow afternoon's critical Middle Atlantic Conference game between defending champ Susquehanna and host Widener, a reunion of sorts will take place. Widener safety Mike Soffel said he hopes Susquehanna wide receiver Al Bucci remembers to bring along his photo album, just as they discussed back in July. Then they can sit down with Widener defensive tackle Dave Duffy and relive how the three of them spent 11 days of their summer vacation. The trio, along with former Widener player Marc Enderle, wound up rooming together as part of a group of 28 Division III players who paid their own way to conduct a series of clinics and exhibitions in Italy.

The Chris Brown: One Hell of a Nite Tour on Friday night was club meets college house party. Before the show began, Michael Jackson played between each set, making it clear who Brown's primary influence is. In the pitch-black Susquehanna Bank Center, before a screaming crowd of thousands, the main screen began with a countdown, then a tour documentary with clips of Brown's year-old daughter, Royalty. He then launched with the bang that started it all, "Run It" from his 2005 debut album Chris Brown , as the visuals behind him burst with gold.

The J. Cole crowd skews young. Jeremih, YG, and Big Sean didn't bring Cole's Forest Hills Drive tour audience's median age any higher Friday. The Susquehanna Bank Center overflowed with fans as the headliner performed pretty much all his December-released Forest Hills Drive , splicing sermons on determination, materialism and gratitude with hits like "Wet Dreamz" and "No Role Modelz. " Those are two Zs, yes. Cole, 30, is a hip-hop scholar in addition to being an up-and-coming name.

Susquehanna Bank rates tops among 31 mid-Atlantic banks for retail customer satisfaction, says McGraw-Hill Financial's JD Power market-research agency, in a survey of 80,000 U.S. consumers. At the other end of the scale, Bank of America ranks at or near the bottom, here and in every part of the country. Is customer-friendliness profitable? After posting disappointing sales and earnings, Susquehanna agreed last fall to be acquired by North Carolina-based BB&T Corp., one of the largest U.S. banks.

READING, Pa. - Imhotep Charter and Susquehanna Township were each whistled for a mind-numbing 28 fouls in Friday night's PIAA Class AAA boys' basketball quarterfinal. "That was pretty crazy," Panthers coach Andre Noble said. "I haven't seen anything like that in a while. It's hard to get a rhythm going when it's like that. " Because of its overall depth, Imhotep handled its foul issues better, had eight players find the scoring column, and advanced with a 58-49 triumph over outmanned Susquehanna at Reading's Geigle Complex.

BB&T is buying its way north in search of diversification, Brown said.

When Robin Thicke hit the summer of 2013 with his sexy smash "Blurred Lines," the world turned on to the blue-eyed-soul-boy shtick he'd been working since the early 2000s. As songwriter for R&B queens (Mya, Brandy) and as a burgeoning solo artist, Alan Thicke's kid has proved he has the goods. His songs have an aching sensuality, and his voice is commanding yet subtle, topped with a creamy falsetto. The buying public just needed to catch up. Which brings us to "Blurred," his lover-man persona (which evidently hasn't pleased his wife, Paula Patton, lately)

The continued search for 7-month-old Hamza Ali came about after detectives decided to visit the area again based on a comment made by the York County man who has been charged with the child's murder, said Chitwood.

When the Backstreet Boys' new album, In a World Like This, debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Top 200, not only did it mark the band's eighth consecutive album to hit the Top 10 upon release, it also did one crucial thing. It reminded naysayers who thought the quintessential boy band had disappeared that the slick '90s teenyboppers had stuck it out and, along the way, become men. In a World Like This proved too that the 20-year-old quintet could write their own hits and make them as emotionally connected as they were softly spun and rhythmic.

The freewheelin' Bob Dylan is always good for a surprise on stage. The songwriting sage, now 72, has perplexed concertgoers by garbling his treasured lyrics and murkily arranging his hits into unrecognizable entities for better and worse. His never-ending tour, too, has had its share of left turns, like its summer of concerts at baseball fields. This season, Dylan's touring twist came by inviting his spiritual indie-rocking children, Wilco and My Morning Jacket, to his Americanarama Festival, which made a much-anticipated stop Sunday at Camden's Susquehanna Center.
