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.

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.

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.

TO Villanova students, my thoughts on the controversy about the pro-life sculpture: Abortion is not the difficult choice; that is the easy way out. The tough choice is being responsible and raising the child. Charlie Jurewicz Hazleton, Pa.

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.

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.

With all the success Villanova enjoyed in the first half of its season, the Wildcats still have an area of concern on their team - the secondary - that coach Andy Talley calls "a work in progress. " However, senior free safety Joe Sarnese and other veterans in the defensive backfield keep working with their younger teammates to make sure schemes are being carried out properly. "Our main focus is just to get everybody in the secondary on the same page so we can work together as one," said Sarnese, who starred at Holy Spirit High in South Jersey.

YOU DIDN'T need a Ph.D in schedule-ology to know back in August the two games most likely to define Villanova's CAA season were bunched within 2 weeks of each other and would take place in Virginia. The first has arrived. Tomorrow afternoon the Wildcats (5-1, 3-0) - who moved up a spot to fifth in the FCS rankings - will be at No. 15 William & Mary (4-2, 1-1). On Nov. 1 they will travel to No. 19 Richmond (4-2, 1-1), following their homecoming against Morgan State (3-3). If the Wildcats want to put themselves in postion to have a good playoff run, which means not going on the road for as long as possible, this is where you begin to really make that convincing closing statement.

The defense rested in the fourth quarter of Villanova's 44-21 victory Saturday over Rhode Island at Villanova Stadium. The Wildcats' first-team offense rested, too. An insurmountable 44-point lead affords such luxuries. But coach Andy Talley sure didn't sound like a guy whose team had just finished dropping 40 points on a fifth straight opponent. What stood out to Talley were the three scores that URI closed with and the 82 penalty yards his team surrendered, which were 22 more than the amount of rushing yards it yielded.

More than seven months after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the search for the plane is expected to resume in the Indian Ocean this month with crews trolling 23,000 square miles. Might the kernel of a better approach be found in a pond in Phoenixville? That is where Villanova University students are tinkering with a robotic boat, a two-pontoon craft equipped with a camera, a laser, and other electronics that let the boat locate obstacles and navigate on its own. The four-foot vessel is a prototype for a 16-foot version that the students and two faculty members will enter this month in a competition in Singapore, along with partners from Florida Atlantic University.

While the amazing season of Villanova quarterback John Robertson seems to get more impressive by the week, one of his teammates is enjoying a Robertson-like year on the other side of the ball. While Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's offensive player of the week for the third time this season after throwing for 285 yards and four touchdowns in a 41-20 win Saturday at Maine, junior linebacker Don Cherry was the CAA defensive player of the week. Not only that, but Cherry was named the co-national defensive player of the week by the Sports Network.
