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.

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.

LAST SEASON, Villanova swept its Big 5 games by a record 90 points. Early this month, the Wildcats won by 14 at La Salle. Three days later, they beat Saint Joseph's by twice that much on the Main Line. Yesterday afternoon, once again at the Pavilion, it was another city team's turn to take a shot at the nation's seventh-ranked squad. Temple had taken three of the previous five meetings, including the last one on Lancaster Avenue, in 2012, its first win at Villanova in a little more than 2 decades.

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.

MILWAUKEE - Sixth-ranked Villanova competed Saturday against an undermanned Marquette team that had only six scholarship players available, and 'Nova spent two-plus hours playing one of its worst defensive games of the season. Fortunately for the Wildcats, they had enough offensively with five players scoring in double figures, and they emerged with an 87-76 win over the Golden Eagles at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, giving them a three-game lead in the Big East with four games remaining.

It has been quite an eventful February for Villanova's Ryan Arcidiacono, and we're not just talking about the fact that the sixth-ranked Wildcats are unbeaten for the month under the floor leadership of their junior point guard and that he reached a season high of 20 points against Providence. It hasn't been just filling a stat sheet, either. Most of the college basketball world has seen the tape of Arcidiacono's getting hit in the forehead by the lower right forearm of Seton Hall's Sterling Gibbs on Monday during a struggle for a loose ball in an 80-54 win for the Wildcats (24-2, 11-2 Big East)

VILLANOVA'S basketball program has received its first oral commitment for the class of 2016. And it's a significant get. The Wildcats have landed 6-9, 270-pound Omari Spellman, who's considered a top-20 prospect at power forward and one of the country's top big men. Spellman made the announcement yesterday, on his mother's birthday. He visited Villanova in October and had offers from all over. Originally from northern Ohio (North Royalton), he's now a junior at The MacDuffie School in Springfield, Mass.

Let's take a snapshot of how realignment has played out so far for the Big East and the American Athletic Conference - the offshoots of the old Big East, the powerhouse Big East. According to projections, if the season ended right now, six of the 10 Big East schools would be in the NCAA tournament. That's a higher percentage than the current chances of the 2012-13 schools. From that old group, seven of the 14 are projected to get in. Would the Big East like to have Louisville and Notre Dame?

This could have been a scary game for Villanova, playing less than 48 hours after a significant win at Butler and going against a Seton Hall team that already had posted a victory over the Wildcats this season. Did we say scary? Hardly. The sixth-ranked Wildcats raced out to a 16-point halftime lead, never allowed the Pirates to get closer than 10 in the second half, drilled a dozen three-point baskets for the game and rolled to an 80-54 Big East victory, their 25th in a row at the Pavilion.

IF EVER this Villanova team was going to play tired, last night at the Pavilion was the night. The Wildcats flew to Providence last Tuesday, played the Friars Wednesday night, flew home after the game, flew to Indianapolis Friday, played Butler Saturday night and flew home after the game. Now, they were flying charters, but that is a very NBA-like schedule. These Wildcats were so tired against Seton Hall that they scored the first seven points, quickly opened up a double-digit lead and never really gave the Pirates any hint that they could win. It was over way before it was over, No. 6 Villanova winning 80-54.

The popular thought for Villanova entering the first weekend of February was that winning two of its next three games - Georgetown at home, Big East contenders Providence and Butler on the road - would be a satisfactory achievement. But when the sixth-ranked Wildcats left the raucous confines of historic Hinkle Fieldhouse on Saturday after an exhilarating 68-65 victory over No. 18 Butler, the tally added up to three wins, zero losses and an overall record of 23-2, the best 25-game start in program history.

NEW YORK - Kyle Lowry was glowing all weekend from the excitement of being selected an All-Star starter. The bulldog guard from Cardinal Dougherty and Villanova couldn't have envisioned the NBA All-Star Weekend coming together any better. A late fan voting surge pushed him into the starting lineup. When the starters were officially announced, he was in Philly as his Toronto Raptors prepared to play the Sixers the next night. He was with his family and teammates in his Philadelphia home when he received word.

VILLANOVA played an NCAA-like week, except the two games were on the road. The Wildcats, absolutely peaking at the right time, won them both, first at Providence on Wednesday and then, behind a Big 5 Player of the Year contender performance from senior Darrun Hilliard, at Butler. All Hilliard did was make a career-best eight threes, score a career-best 31 points and launch the game-winning trey with 3 seconds left at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse. Hilliard's final shot won the game, 68-65, and put the Wildcats in complete control of the Big East race.
