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.

AT ONE POINT, it looked as if Jalen Brunson was destined to go to Temple. His father Rick played for John Chaney some 2 decades ago. His mother Sandra played volleyball on North Broad Street. The family lived in South Jersey when he was growing up. As it turns out, the player Scout.com rates as the top point guard in the recruiting class of 2015 is coming to Philadelphia. But he'll be playing for a different Big 5 program from his dad's. Wednesday at Stevenson (Ill.) High, Brunson announced he will bring his talents to Villanova.

Jalen Brunson unzipped his black sweatshirt. He had tucked his college choice underneath. The heavily recruited high school point guard revealed a white Villanova T-shirt, declaring his oral commitment to the Wildcats. Brunson made the announcement at a Wednesday news conference at his suburban Chicago high school. The 6-foot-2 lefthander spent last weekend on an official visit to Villanova and chose the Wildcats over Illinois. Before narrowing his choices, Brunson also considered Temple, Connecticut, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan State, and Purdue.

Early in the second quarter of what would become a 50-6 victory for Villanova over Fordham on Saturday, the visiting Rams called a timeout that ended up lasting 1 hour and 19 minutes. Lightning struck outside Villanova Stadium, forcing both teams back to the locker room with 'Nova holding a 7-3 lead. Thirteen minutes of game time - and two hours of real time - later, the Wildcats returned to the locker room for halftime with a 33-3 lead. "We had talked about it, and I told them that this situation could happen," Villanova coach Andy Talley said.

Last year, Villanova's football season began unraveling during the second week, and the Wildcats are hoping history won't repeat. A year ago, after losing to Boston College in the opener, Villanova fell at Fordham, 27-24. That win was an indication of how strong Fordham would be, as the Rams ended up earning a Football Championship Subdivision playoff berth, losing to eventual finalist Towson in the second round. Villanova, considered a potential national title contender in 2013, never really recovered from that loss and finished 6-5. Now, after coming off an emotionally draining, 27-26, double-overtime loss at Syracuse, the Wildcats host Fordham at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Villanova Stadium.

WHEN YOU'RE ranked fifth in the preseason, you don't expect to drop your first two games. But that's what happened to Villanova a year ago. The Wildcats lost at FBS Boston College, where they could have won, and at Fordham, which ended up getting to the second round of the FCS playoffs. And just like that, they were paddling upstream. After winning their next four, which included a win at No. 3 Towson, the eventual national runnerup, injuries and a bear of a schedule caught up with them and they ended up 6-5. It didn't matter that three of the losses were by a combined six points.

For a few months in 1966, the budding romance between film star George Hamilton and Lynda Bird Johnson, daughter of the 36th president, was the talk of Washington. Gossip columnists followed their every move as Hamilton squired her around town. The couple vacationed in Acapulco and made camera-ready appearances at the Sugar Bowl, Mardi Gras, and the Oscars. The actor spent Easter at the LBJ ranch in Texas and even attended the Washington wedding of Lynda's sister Luci. President Johnson made no secret of his suspicions about the handsome, patent-leather playboy, perhaps best known now for his perpetual tan, blinding smile, and roles on TV shows ranging from   Columbo to Dynasty to Dancing With the Stars . But a previously confidential FBI file - which a Philadelphia judge last week outlined in an opinion and ordered to be released - shows for the first time how far Johnson went to protect his daughter and his presidency.
