American Christian School, the private school in Aston that houses big-time basketball prospect Tyreke Evans, has found what it considers the right coach to help him achieve his dream. Tony Bergeron, recruiting coordinator of the Five-Star Basketball Camp and coach of a nationally ranked prep program last season, replaces Ray Carroll, who was dismissed last month. "Everybody I talked to about Tony said he has no ulterior motives," Jim Peper, American Christian's athletic director, said.

American Christian senior Tyreke Evans will be named a McDonald's all-American tomorrow, according to sources close to the situation. The 6-foot-6 guard will participate in the McDonald's All-American Game on March 26 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Evans, who could not be reached for comment, would become the second Delaware County player to participate in the prestigious event; Barry Bekkedam of Archbishop Carroll was named a McDonald's all-American in 1986. Evans also would be the third Southeastern Pennsylvania player in the last three seasons to play in the game.

The American Christian Academy & Prep School, a small private school that was housed in a church in Aston, Pa., and was famously noted for high school basketball star Tyreke Evans, will close its high school and sports programs, several sources confirmed Monday afternoon. The decision was revealed Sunday at a church service by the new administration, headed by Pastor Ed Trinkle, who was not available for comment yesterday. According to several sources, Trinkle has decided to downsize the school to preschool and grade school for financial reasons.

LIKE JUST about every NBA player who doesn't know if and when the upcoming season will begin, Sacramento Kings star Tyreke Evans has busied himself preparing as if there will be in the near future. And just like many of his peers, he is no closer to knowing what's going on than the fans who pay to see him play. "People think that we know more because we're players, but we're just like them, we're clueless," Evans said yesterday at the Science and Discovery High School in his native Chester, where he was joining with VSP Vision Care to help provide free eye exams to students in need.

Lawyers for Tyreke Evans say their client had no knowledge his cousin, a passenger in the car he was driving, was carrying a gun or intended to shoot it the day a Chester Township man was killed. Lawyers for the family of Marcus Reason, the man killed by Jamar Evans in November 2007, say that is not believable. Tyreke Evans, a Sacramento Kings rookie point guard, and his cousin are among four men named in a wrongful-death civil suit filed in December in Delaware County. The family of Marcus Reason is asking for a judgment in excess of $50,000.

Former NBA rookie of the year Tyreke Evans is ready for a change of scenery, according to sources familiar with his thinking. Sources told ESPN.com that Evans, frustrated by the state of his negotiations with the Sacramento Kings as a restricted free agent, is determined to leave the organization and plans to sign an offer sheet with the New Orleans Pelicans on the first allowable day. Although the Pelicans technically were still waiting for...

TYREKE EVANS needs a reality check. The Pelicans guard, who grew up in Chester, told The Sporting News that his team has a legitimate chance to win the NBA title this season. Huh? Did he forget that New Orleans was swept by the Warriors - the eventual NBA champions - in the first round of last season's playoffs? What's changed since then? The Pelicans biggest offseason move was hiring Warriors assistant Alvin Gentry to replace Monty Williams as head coach. "I don't see why we can't do it," Evans said.

Tyreke Evans, the gifted 6-6 shooting guard from American Christian and the country's top unsigned basketball player, will likely commit to Memphis, according to several sources close to Evans and his recruiting process. Evans will officially make his announcement at 3 p.m. tomorrow at American Christian. Evans, who will play with the nation's top high school seniors in the Jordan Brand Classic at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, was noncommittal yesterday and says that Memphis, Villanova and Texas are all still in the running.

Tyreke Evans, the super-talented American Christian Academy guard and MVP of the McDonald's All- American Game, said last night that he was leaning heavily toward picking Villanova after making an official visit with the basketball coaching staff Tuesday night. "After eating with Jay and talking to Jay, he kept it real with me," Evans said of the meeting with Villanova coach Jay Wright. "He told me the things I wanted to hear and some things I didn't want to hear but will make me a better player.

On paper, Lamont Peterson is listed as a strength and conditioning coach. In reality, the Philadelphia native is much more. Peterson is an adviser, liaison, promoter, protector and extension of the family to some of the top professional, college and high school basketball players in the area. He has worked with Sacramento Kings rookie Tyreke Evans, Minnesota Timberwolves' Wayne Ellington, Syracuse University's Scoop Jardine, the Academy of the New Church's Rakeem Christmas and Savon Lloyd-Goodman, and Perry Ellis of Wichita Heights High in Kansas, to name a few. Christmas and Ellis are regarded as two of the nation's top high school players, according to various recruiting services.

STEPHEN CURRY may look angelic, but to the rest of the NBA, he is Satan in sneakers. He can score off the dribble, coming off a pick, in transition or thread a pass to a teammate like a snake flicks its tongue. On Saturday, he makes his annual visit to the Wells Fargo Center. So here's a closer look at Curry, who is on his way to a second consecutive MVP Award, a second consecutive NBA championship, his first scoring title and inevitable comparison's to some of the greats to ever play the game.

Believe it or not, the 76ers might not be in the worst shape of all NBA franchises. The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have issues that rival the Sixers'. On Friday, the Nets became the league's first team to start 0-6 this year after losing to the previously winless Lakers, 104-98, at the Barclays Center. Brooklyn then boarded a plane to face the Bucks in Milwaukee on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the 1-4 Lakers face the New York Knicks on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. And they're not tanking like the Sixers.

TYREKE EVANS took three steps up into an RV that had been converted into a VSP Mobile Eyes Clinic outside Chester City Hall. As he ducked to get through the door, volunteers greeted the New Orleans Pelicans guard as if they had been friends for years. Evans proceeded through the vehicle and knocked on, then opened one of the exam room doors. A doctor looked around the state-of-the-art equipment and was thrilled to see the 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year looking back at him. The woman who was being examined was just as excited to see Evans.

The basketball courts are easily overlooked: Just three blacktops and a dimmed scoreboard bracketed by a couple of sets of metal bleachers. They stretch along an otherwise barren block of Seventh Street near downtown Chester, in the shadows of a railroad overpass. But in the gritty city of 34,000 with a remarkable basketball tradition, the Seventh Street courts are king. For many, they are home - a relief, an escape, the premier athletic battleground. A tiny haven of safety within one of the region's most dangerous cities.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had just completed a few drills at last month's NBA draft combine in Chicago. One of the first questions after he arrived at an interview session was, how does coming from Chester prepare him for the NBA draft process? The small Delaware County city is a gritty, blue-collar place. "I say the league is about toughness, man," Hollis-Jefferson responded. "At the end of the day, who's tough? Who can last? Who's the man? I will say my city helped build me and make me ready for that.

NEW ORLEANS - So how does one measure Michael Carter-Williams, the scintillating point guard of the struggling 76ers? He leads NBA rookies in scoring, assists, rebounds, and steals. That has led to some musing that he could be a superstar, mentioned in the same breath as legends Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson. Others have compared him to contemporaries Chris Paul and LeBron James. The 6-foot-6, 185-pound Carter-Williams is a shining light amid the gloom that is this season's Sixers.

ANTHONY DAVIS missed his first six shots for the New Orleans Pelicans, but he was still the most impactful player on the court. The former No. 1 pick might not have been doing much offensively, but he had Dikembe Mutumbo-like intimidation going on at the defensive end. Whenever there was a drive to the lane by a 76ers player, it usually resulted in an attempted kickout (which was often intercepted) a double-pump travel, or a shot attempt that ended getting swatted by the Kentucky product.

The horn sounded midway through Friday's third quarter and Sixers head coach Brett Brown ambled onto the court with a clipboard in one hand and a dry-erase marker in the other. His rookie point guard, Michael Carter-Williams, had just completed one of his game-high five turnovers. And like many of those before, New Orleans cashed it in for fastbreak points to power to a 121-105 victory. Brown gathered his assistants for the early seconds of his timeout before huddling his players around the clipboard.

At 25, Spencer Hawes will be an elder statesman on what could be among the youngest teams in the NBA. That point was accented Friday when the seventh-year center was asked during the team's media day whether he sees similarities in the youthfulness of this team and the Sacramento Kings squads he played on during his first three NBA seasons. "Even [on] those [Sacramento] teams, I don't know if there were this many young guys, but it is fun," he said. In his final season in Sacramento, 2009-10, the 25-57 Kings roster was filled with young players.
