Betty Okino, a 16-year-old gymnast with a beautiful, slender, long-legged body, wrinkles her nose with disgust. "I am told I have the wrong body type for gymnastics," Okino says. And she frowns. Okino is a gymnast, a very good one. She won a silver medal in the 1992 world championships on the uneven bars. She has a move, a triple pirouette on the balance beam, named after her. But in the last year, Okino has grown two inches, to 5-foot-4 - uncommonly tall for a gymnast. And she has a stress fracture in her back.

Hello there   After chatting with several people who seemingly only wanted an online relationship, and meeting others who expected her to pay for both of them, Angela figured she was unlucky in online love. So in fall 2011, she told Match.com not to renew her subscription. Her access to the dating site would end when the month she'd paid for was over. A few days later, she got a message through the site from Kevin. "I see you lived in Baltimore," he said, noting her graduate degree from Johns Hopkins.

Call them mirror images. The only difference between the Villanova and Richmond football teams may be the emblems on the helmets. That's because the two Football Championship Subdivision squads have powerful running games. They score a bunch of points. They have stingy defenses. They're ranked among the nation's top four programs. Those similarities make today's matchup at the University of Richmond Stadium this season's most-anticipated Colonial Athletic Association game.

A roar of disappointment and disgust went up Sunday from friends and alumni crowded into the Connelly Center's multipurpose room when "Virginia" went up on the No. 1 seed line in the East Regional instead of Villanova. But the Wildcats players and coaches were just fine with being the region's No. 2 seed, good for a matchup against Horizon League tournament champion University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Thursday in Buffalo. "I thought a No. 1 seed was possible, but I understood we weren't going to get it because we lost in the quarterfinals of the Big East" tournament, senior guard Tony Chennault said.

Andre Metzger, two-time runner-up in the World Championships and a four- time all-American at Oklahoma, has been fired as an assistant wrestling coach at Villanova and dismissed from coach John du Pont's Team Foxcatcher. Metzger, seeded second at 149.5 pounds (68 kilos) at the U.S. Olympic trials in Pensacola, is expected to represent the United States at the Olympics in Seoul. Du Pont said Metzger, who was informed May 31 via the mail that he was fired, had told two potential recruits - Jason Culff of Michigan and Chuck Weaver of Oklahoma - not to sign with Villanova this spring because the university did not have its own wrestling room.

As often as 10 times a year, graduated players with basketball eligibility remaining would contact Jay Wright to see whether a final season at Villanova might make sense. "You never say never in this business," the head coach said, "but we haven't felt like those players would fit our culture. " So Wright was stunned in April when Dylan Ennis, a point guard who had graduated but was expected to be the Wildcats captain in 2015-16, his final season, told Wright he was headed for Oregon.

A 31/2-year battle over expansion at Villanova University has ended with a vote by Radnor Township commissioners to approve new dormitories, parking lots, and a performance center for the school. The board voted 4-2, with one abstention, Monday night to approve the $225 million project. Work is expected to begin in the fall on the parking lots, and two dorms near Lancaster Avenue are slated to be open by 2019, Chris Kovolski, a university assistant vice president, said. The dorms will house close to 1,200 students, most of them seniors, and will include a bistro, apparel store, and convenience store, he said.

On the night of the NBA draft, Darrun Hilliard tried to find ways to distract himself as he waited for a call from an NBA team while spending time with his family in Bethlehem, Pa. When the board game Trouble and the card game Uno didn't work, he went on a 4-mile run. "It's crazy that I was still working, even on draft day," the former Villanova star said. "I was just trying to keep my nerves down and my anxiety down. " Finally the call came about 11:30 p.m. The Detroit Pistons were on the line, and with the 38th overall choice and eighth in the second round, they wanted the 6-foot-6 Hilliard, who averaged a team-high 14.3 points and was named first-team all-Big East and Big Five Player of the Year last season.

Nicastro said he will stay on until a new athletic director is named. He then will become associate director of the Jeffrey S. Moorad Center for the Study of Sports Law at the Villanova University School of Law. "It's something I've been talking to our president for a couple of months about, what the next chapter would be," Nicastro said Thursday afternoon.

IF YOU have been around college sports as long as I have, you meet every imaginable kind of person - some with agendas, others who are in it just for themselves, overmatched incompetents. You also get to know people like Vince Nicastro, who is everything good about college athletics - honest, fair-minded, reasonable and terrific at his job. When it was announced yesterday that Nicastro, the Villanova athletics director for 15 years, will be leaving his job sometime soon to become the associate director of the Jeffrey S. Moorad Center for the Study of Sports Law at the Villanova School of Law, I felt good for Vince and his family because that is what they want.

ONE OF THE FIRST things Jay Wright does after every Villanova game is go back over the video. "You always want to see, immediately, what we can improve for the next game," said the man who has the third-most wins in school history. Except when that game is suddenly another eight months away, which is what happens when you unexpectedly get ousted in the first week of the NCAA Tournament. "Once there's not a next game, you know it's going to hurt to watch," Wright said. "So you kind of delay it. "I probably didn't watch for a couple of weeks.
