It's been some ride for Villanova senior center Daniel Ochefu. He won a national championship with the Wildcats, rode in a victory parade in Center City, rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange, and got to be a special guest at several pro games. Earlier this week, he was among the Wildcats who represented the team at City Hall as Council honored their accomplishment. And on Friday afternoon, he graduated. So how did he celebrate? Well, as it turns out, CBS3 sports anchor Don Bell was feeling under the weather.

CHICAGO - DeAndre Bembry will tell you that he isn't trying to accomplish anything. The St. Joseph's guard/forward is just here at the NBA draft combine playing his game. "I feel like if there are teams that really didn't get to see me, they'll get to see me," Bembry said. "They'll see that I can do multiple things on the court. " That's what happened during Thursday's scrimmage at Quest Sports Complex. The 6-foot-6, 210-pounder scored 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting. He also finished with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and a turnover in 12 minutes, 46 seconds of action.

Adding a final jewel to the philanthropic legacy of John and Chara Cooper Haas, their children are donating the family's Stoneleigh Estate in Villanova to the conservation group Natural Lands Trust, which will manage it as a native-plants garden, open free to the public. The 42 acres and Tudor Revival mansion on North Spring Mill Road are to be transferred to the trust at a ceremony and luncheon Wednesday on the Great Lawn behind the house. Emotionally, "it is a passage, for sure," said David Haas, who was 9 when his parents acquired the estate from his grandparents in 1964.

Yes, Jay Wright said the other day, more recruits are more receptive to calls from Villanova right now. Even the five-star guys who have variations of Kentucky and North Carolina and Kansas and Duke on their lists. Obviously, this is not a bad thing for 'Nova's program to be at the top of the mountain as recruits, mostly from the college class of 2021, mull their savory choices. However, Villanova's coach only has to look back at recruiting after his team made the Final Four in 2009 to know he has to manage it right.

Villanova junior Kris Jenkins has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft and will return for his senior season in 2016-17, the university disclosed Monday night. "It was a great experience for me to go through this process," the 6-foot-6 forward said. "I'm looking forward to concentrating on graduating next year and getting back to work with my teammates at Villanova. " Jenkins and guard Josh Hart said last month that they planned to enter the NBA draft evaluation process. Players are allowed to withdraw from the draft within 10 days after the NBA combine, which is scheduled for May 11-15 in Chicago.

Speed was a consideration. This was a race, after all. Strength and stamina were part of the coach's calculus, too. This was a distance race, remember. But when Villanova coach Gina Procaccio cobbled together her lineup for its long shot of winning the 4x1,500-meter Championship of America race on Friday at the 122nd annual Penn Relays, she looked deeper than split times and personal bests. "In the way back in my mind, I always try to win at Penn," Procaccio said after the Wildcats' dramatic victory in one of the featured events of the long day of competition at Franklin Field.

It happened in the blink of an eye in the damp chill of Franklin Field, just before the crowd of 38,534 prepared to kick up the volume to 11 as it urged the four women still with a shot at winning the Penn Relays 4x1500-meter Championship of America relay to an epic finish. At first glance, Georgetown's Andrea Keklak and Oregon's Annie Leblanc were setting the pace waiting to see who would make the first move. But Siofra Cleirigh Buttner, the gritty Villanova sophomore from Ireland, took the shot with 200 meters left - bolting to the outside, then to the front, and outrunning both women to the line to give the Wildcats the surprising victory.

They were cold. They were cold, literally. "Actually, freezing," Georgetown's Sabrina Southerland said of the conditions on the first full day of competition at the 122th Penn Relays. They were cold in another way, as well - clinical, focused, undeterred by the elements or the stage, by the recent history or the competition. "Basically, we knew we just had to go out and do our jobs," Georgetown's Katrina Coogan said after anchoring her team to an imposing victory in the distance medley relay Championship of America race late Thursday afternoon on the refurbished track at Franklin Field.

Being fifth-year seniors at Georgetown, Katrina Coogan and Andrea Keklak are experienced in the ways of the Penn Relays and did not allow the damp chill enveloping Franklin Field on Thursday to keep them from what they've been waiting for their entire careers. The Hoyas blew open the women's distance medley relay with their two middle legs - senior Heather Martin in the 400 meters and junior Sabrina Southerland in the 800 - and romped to a decisive victory over Oklahoma State and Villanova in the featured race on the first full day of the 122nd annual carnival.
