"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.

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.

The family of Marcus Reason is asking for a judgment in excess of $50,000.

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.

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.
