LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Ronald Roberts Jr. came to the HP Field House at ESPN's Wide World of Sports ready to play Sunday. And that was a good thing. During a lethargic start for St. Joseph's in the fifth-place game at the Old Spice Classic, Roberts was inspired, and his energy eventually carried over to the rest of his team. The Hawks senior continued his strong play in the tourney, scoring 21 points and grabbing 10 rebounds as St. Joseph's (4-2) pulled out a 72-67 victory over Washington State.

Everything about Ryan Leaf is big. Big hands. Big head. Big mouth. Leaf admits it. "I've been," he says, "kind of a jerk in my past. " Jerk with a smirk - that's what opponents have said about Leaf, who is a big trash-talker during football games, after football games, sometimes even before football games. Leaf has always loved to make big predictions about himself and whatever team he is commanding. Now, this year, in one sparkling football season, he has backed up all the talk.

Until last month, U.S. Rep. Linda Smith was considered the most formidable Republican in Washington state. Elected in 1994 on a write-in vote, she had been courted by Ross Perot as a running mate. When she decided to seek a second term representing southwest Washington, rather than run for governor, no one of stature dared challenge her. Along came Brian Baird, an unknown clinical psychology professor whose political resume was limited to ringing doorbells for other candidates and heading a local Sierra Club chapter.

Riding a wave of momentum, endorsements, and sky-high poll numbers, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry campaigned yesterday in Michigan, where he is expected to win resoundingly today in the state's Democratic Party caucuses. Kerry, who has won seven of nine primaries or caucuses to emerge as the Democratic presidential front-runner, also is poised for wins in Washington state today and in Maine tomorrow. He campaigned this week in all three states, where 228 delegates are at stake, including 128 in Michigan.

The nation's eyes will be on the State of Washington tomorrow as it votes on the toughest term-limit measure yet devised. Initiative 553 is merciless. It covers every legislator, federal and state, and doesn't "grandfather" a single one. If it's passed and survives the predictable legal challenges, U.S. House Speaker Tom Foley and a majority of the congressional delegation would have to step down by 1994. Washington's vaunted congressional seniority wouldn't be the only victim.

A deal to transfer Thomas Trantino from a Camden halfway house to Washington state has fallen apart, at least for now, because of the slaying of a police officer there. James E. Thatcher of the Washington Department of Corrections said the killing of a police officer in Des Moines, Wash., about 30 miles from the capital of Olympia, had forced the decision. "It sensitized the local law enforcement community to some extent," he said. Trantino was convicted of killing two police officers in a bar in Lodi, Bergen County, in 1963 and served almost 38 years in prison.

A week before the biggest primary contest in American history, Texas Gov. George W. Bush swept three Republican presidential contests yesterday, defeating Arizona Sen. John McCain from conservative Virginia to independent-minded Washington state. Bush carried Virginia by 53 to 44 percent over McCain. In largely uncontested precinct caucuses in North Dakota, he won the support of participants by a 76-19 margin. In Washington, Bush's lead among Republican voters was so commanding that he was declared the winner in early returns.

Update: The Eagles released linebacker Travis Long Wednesday morning. From Tuesday:   Travis Long was listed as a third-year player, which is both technically true and a cruel taunt. Long has been here since the 2013 training camp, when he impressed coaches as a 3-4 outside linebacker. He was an undrafted rookie with size (6-4, 255) and talent, available after the draft because he was coming off a late-season right ACL tear at Washington State. Long went on to spend 2013 on the Eagles' practice squad, setting him up as a first-year player in 2014, under the NFL's rules.

They say news travels fast. But a cynic might have wondered Sunday whether word that Sen. Bernie Sanders has ended his presidential campaign and endorsed Hillary Clinton ever reached the far corners of Washington state, about 3,000 miles from the Wells Fargo Center. How else to explain this craziness - a wired and tired 42-year-old Shanda Masta, cigarette dangling from her fire-engine-red nails, telling the story of how she and 21 complete strangers all met up Thursday morning at Seattle's Safeco Field and then drove 70 hours nonstop in four vans and a tricked-out RV called "The Berniemobile.

ISSUE | ANIMAL CRUELTY Give up eggs I watched and read about Mercy for Animals' disturbing footage from its recent undercover investigation of a possible egg supplier for Malvern-based Eggland's Best ("Activists allege cruelty by egg supplier," Thursday). Sadly, I know that such inhumane treatment of egg-laying hens is all too common in the industry. The debate over whether two Briarwood Farms locations in Washington state are supplying Eggland's Best must not distract us from this fact: As consumers, if we want to be sure that we are not contributing to this cruelty, whether packaged as Eggland's Best or some other brand, the best thing we can do is keep eggs off our plates.

ISSUE | STATE STORES Business is booming As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I was pleased to hear that the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board sold a record $2.34 billion in wine and spirits in fiscal year 2014-15. To ensure that sales keep increasing, however, the LCB has agreed with House Democrats that we must make the state system more convenient by expanding store hours and Sunday sales, establishing flexible pricing, and allowing lottery ticket sales in stores.

It sounds like one of those uplifting sports movies Hollywood loves, those whose stirring sound tracks are designed to mask cornball plots and historical inaccuracies: In the early 1960s, when African Americans were rare on Catholic League and Big Five basketball rosters and the Civil Rights Act remained a dream, the players on an all-white, Catholic grade-school team in Delaware County asked a young, black Villanova graduate to be their coach....

SAY IT ain't so, Josephine. A Little League softball team was eliminated from the World Series playoffs yesterday under unusual circumstances. On Monday, a team from Washington state failed to get a hit in an 8-0 loss to a team from North Carolina. The loss created a three-way tie in Pool B play and, due to tiebreaking rules, Washington and North Carolina advanced to the semifinals, while Central Iowa did not. Here, the plot thickens. Had Washington won, North Carolina would have been eliminated and Central Iowa would have advanced.

IT'S INTERESTING how little things can stick in your memory. Like Jim McLaughlin's No. 44. It was the number he wore when he played wide receiver on the football team of St. Francis of Assisi Parochial School in Springfield, Delaware County, back in the '50s. "It was a number he always remembered," his family said. Which might seem curious, because Jim McLaughlin went on to more athletic achievements, success in business and many charitable activities. But, apparently, in his mind he would always be No. 44. James J. McLaughlin Jr., a health-care marketer, founder of a health-care consulting business, an active alumnus of St. Joseph's University, an Air Force veteran and a devoted family man, died Friday at age 67 after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

SEEMA S. SONNAD was passionate about her researches in the health services field, but she had another passion, running. She was one of those runners who think mere marathons (26.2 miles) are not challenging enough. They go for the big distances. It was while running an ultramarathon in Washington State on May 27 that Seema suffered a cardiac arrhythmia. She died in Valley Medical Center in Renton, Wash. She was 52 and had homes in West Philadelphia and Chadds Ford. Seema S. Sonnad was director of Health Services Research for the Value Institute at Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, Del., a position to which she was appointed in October 2012.
