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.

Dylan Ennis wanted a chance to be the prototypical point guard on the basketball court and realized that particular role really doesn't exist the way Villanova runs its offense. So Ennis, who started all 36 games this past season for the Big East champion Wildcats, is saying good-bye to the Wildcats after he graduates next month. He will spend his final year of eligibility next season as a postgraduate student in a program that he hopes will allow him to run the offense and set up his teammates.

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.

PITTSBURGH - The scene in the losing locker room after an NCAA tournament game is always the same, and this is how it was Saturday night in the Consol Energy Center: Each player on the Villanova roster, seated and slumped, each one's face blank, each one's body folded into a wooden cubicle as if they were all dolls stuffed and stacked on a child's closet shelf. The silence in the room is always the most cutting thing, because for some of these kids - and they are still kids, despite the pomp and the attention and the billions of dollars made on their backs - college basketball is over for them.

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.

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.

DOESN'T THIS guy ever rest? Yesterday, Joe Lunardi, the nation's premier bracketologist, posted an early look at next year's NCAA Tournament pairings on ESPN.com. And guess what? Jay Wright's Villanova Wildcats are back as a top seed, this time in the West Region, while Fran Dunphy's Temple Owls are listed as an 11 in the Midwest. And, oh yeah, Lunardi has Lehigh in a play-in game. Two teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference are also No. 1 seeds, but neither is named Duke.

FOR THE second time this week, one of the city's basketball players has decided to take advantage of the NCAA rule that allows them to transfer and be immediately eligible to play their final season because they've graduated on time. First it was Drexel's Damion Lee. Now it's Villanova's fourth-year junior guard Dylan Ennis, who averaged 9.9 points for a team that went 33-3. Ennis, who will get his communications degree in May, transferred to the Main Line 3 years ago after playing as a freshman at Rice and had to sit out in 2012-13.

The subsequent three decades merely have confirmed what Villanova's national championship team learned for certain on the memorable night of April 1, 1985: Jake Nevin not only looked like a leprechaun, he was one. Since his death in December 1985, some visitors to his unmarked Ardmore grave insist that if you put a cigar in the ground, the diminutive Villanova trainer, who was rarely without one, will begin puffing on it. A night watchman once...

The T-shirt. When he was playing college ball in the early 1980s, Chris Mullin always wore that T-shirt underneath his St. John's tank top. Jay Wright had never seen anyone do that before. It was one of the first things Wright thought of when he learned this week that St. John's would hire Mullin as its new head coach, that a former Big East power had reached into its past to try to revitalize its present. Wright, Villanova's head coach, was still a student at Bucknell University then, often making the 150-mile drive from Lewisburg, Pa., to 'Nova's campus to see his girlfriend, Patty Reilly, who is now his wife.

IN THE final game of the regular season, in March of 1985, Villanova got pounded at Pittsburgh. It was so bad that coach Rollie Massimino benched his starters for almost the entire second half. Even after winning a game at the Big East Tournament, that Pitt game still lingered. The Wildcats were a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and expectations were low. Then when they saw their first game in the bracket - against Dayton, at Dayton - the expectations were non-existent. But then it began - a last-minute win over Dayton followed by the felling of mighty Michigan, No. 2 in the nation.

The Temple and Villanova women's basketball teams are each one victory from facing each other in the semifinals of the Women's National Invitation Tournament, but tough road games and a couple of talented players await on Sunday. Villanova (22-13) travels to old Big East foe West Virginia, where it will try to halt the Mountaineers' 16-game home winning streak against nonconference opponents at the West Virginia Coliseum (2 p.m.). The defensive-minded Mountaineers, coming off a 60-39 rout of Duquesne, are led by two-time all-Big 12 first-team junior guard Bria Holmes (18.9 ppg.)

SINCE VILLANOVA'S upset defeat at the hands of North Carolina State in this year's NCAA Tournament, a growing number of people have said coach Jay Wright should go. The main reasoning behind this talk is the sentiment that he is not a big-game coach, as demonstrated by his teams' NCAA Tournament losses. Coaching is a hard profession, particularly in college sports. Alumni and supporters tend to have expectation levels that simply are unrealistic and also to have a "what have you done for me lately" attitude.
