Sean Cassel can't bring himself to say that word. Even though his Seneca baseball team returned just one starter and a pitching staff that had logged all of four varsity innings entering the season, Cassel won't concede that this is a rebuilding year. Maybe this attitude explains how in a very short time, Seneca has launched itself into elite South Jersey baseball circles. The first varsity team competed in 2005. By 2007, the Golden Eagles had won the state Group 3 championship.

DOMINIC CHEEK comes from a rough part of Jersey City, N.J., where he became a McDonald's All-American at St. Anthony's High. Now he wants to start helping his parents, grandmother and three brothers (two younger) by playing basketball for a living. Wherever that might take him. "I know it could be a bumpy road," he said Thursday at Villanova, where the Wildcats' junior guard, as expected, made it official by announcing he's making himself available for the NBA draft. "But I'm willing to face that challenge, do whatever I have to do to . . . pursue my dream of a pro career.

BOSTON - Before this season started, "evaluate" was the word used most frequently by Sixers president Rod Thorn and coach Doug Collins. While both were hoping for many wins and the positives they bring an organization, they were also looking to the future, and determining which players would fit into their plans. After winning 18 of the first 25 games, the questions of what had to be done to improve this team during the offseason were swept under the rug for the most part.

WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich once led his rivals for the nomination in polls. Today, he's millions in debt and describing Mitt Romney as "far and away the most likely" GOP nominee. Running for president "turned out to be much harder than I thought it would be," he said Sunday. "I do think there's a desire for a more idea-oriented Republican Party, but that doesn't translate necessarily to being able to take on the Romney machine," Gingrich said in an interview on Fox News Sunday . After his Jan. 21 victory in the South Carolina primary, the former House speaker said the Florida primary he lost in the following days turned into a "real brawl.

CARMELO ANTHONY called it a statement game, and the message should be clear for the Chicago Bulls. If they do meet in the playoffs, the Bulls better finish off Anthony and the Knicks when they have the chance. Anthony scored 43 points, his most since coming to New York last February, and made the go-ahead three-pointer with 8.2 seconds left in overtime as the Knicks spoiled the return to the lineup for a rusty Derrick Rose and beat the visiting Bulls, 100-99, on Sunday. Anthony tied it with a three late in regulation and scored the final five points of overtime in his signature performance since coming to New York last February.

THE COACHES kept no score, but used stats as a litmus to gauge just how efficient and effective Penn football in 2012 will be. In an annual spring game (of sorts) Sunday at Franklin Field, coach Al Bagnoli and staff kept their own scoring system, awarding points to the offense for first downs, touchdowns and highlight-reel plays. On defense, points were given for drive stoppages, negative yardage plays, turnovers, etc. In the end, it was the offense that proved more dominant, scoring six times.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Nikola Vucevic is going through a routine part of any rookie's season in the NBA. He appears to be lost on the offensive end, a step (or two) slow on the defensive side, and is playing with all the aggressiveness of a pillow. No matter how much 76ers coach Doug Collins rides his rookie center, and he has done so frequently lately, he understands what Vucevic is going through. Every player has a certain amount of struggle time during his first season. Including the Sixers' 105-80 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night, he has scored just 17 points in his last six games, making just six of his last 26 shots.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - If you're a shooter and a scorer, Doug Collins is the coach for you. He was that type of player when he played and he more than understands the ups and downs of being a player relied on to fill the scoring column each and every game. It is why he and Lou Williams possess such a unique relationship. Williams leads the team in scoring despite coming off the bench, despite averaging about 26 minutes a game. There are times when he carries the team and there are times when his misses pile up quickly.

Question: It's been a bad time for my husband and me. We dealt with a late miscarriage about a year ago, followed by surgery related to the miscarriage. I haven't been able to get pregnant again, and multiple people around me have had babies (two very close to my due date) or are getting pregnant. My job is probably not going to last beyond spring. I have been looking for another job for months, have been on more interviews than I ever thought I would get, but still don't have a new position.

By virtue of its simple, stylized look - bold lines and color blocks - and effervescent Cuban jazz score, the Spanish animated feature Chico & Rita rises above its routine story of a troubled love affair between talented musicians. The movie opens as the aged Chico (voice of Eman Xor Oña), a Havana bootblack, looks out at the city and flashes back to pre-revolution days when he was a young piano player and ladies' man and fell for alluring songbird Rita (Limara Meneses). Over the following decades, the relationship will have some ups and lots of downs.
