They played a big basketball game yesterday at McGonigle Hall. And to tell you something about the kind of game it was, the people who summed up the day best were the people in the Temple band. They did that just by launching into that time-honored, social-commentary number, "Rock Around the Clock," midway through the second half. And the only big upset was that they didn't go right into "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" when that one was over. You see, the clock - or rather the lack of one - turned out to be a big issue during Temple's rocky, 57-51 victory yesterday over West Virginia.

Everything changed, Martin Luther King offensive tackle Dontae Angus said, when the University of Florida fired offensive-line coach and area recruiting coordinator Tim Davis at the end of last season's 4-8 showing. "I had my heart set on Florida, but I lost all contact with them after that happened," said the 6-foot-6, 328-pound senior, who committed to the Gators in July. "I never heard from them again. " Forced to switch gears late in the recruitment process, Angus visited West Virginia last weekend and committed to the Mountaineers on Wednesday, national signing day.

NATE SMITH and his new football teammates have stories to tell. While strapping on pads in the locker room . . . Wolfing down lunch in the cafeteria . . . Riding around town on a Saturday night . . .  Though the story Smith tells, dating back to a down moment in the 2010 season, remains difficult to relive, he feels the one related by his new grid buddies is much more painful. First, some particulars. Smith, who yesterday made an oral commitment to play defensive back at West Virginia, is a 6-foot, 190-pound senior at Archbishop Wood, and a star across many skies (wideout, safety, cornerback, return man)

PITTSBURGH - West Virginia took a 75-mile bus ride to town. Gonzaga flew more than 2,200 miles. Many said it wasn't fair that the No. 7 seed had to travel so far to play No. 10, barely an hour from its campus, at the Consol Energy Center. They were all right. It wasn't fair. Gonzaga jumped West Virginia midway through the first half last night and never let up, blowing the Mountaineers out of the Big East to the Big 12 with a sendoff that only a Pittsburgh fan could love.

James Spears grew up playing basketball in rural southeastern Maryland - he had never even worn football pads before arriving at Glen Mills in the summer of 1987. But when Spears - hotly recruited by Division I colleges in both sports - thought about his future, he decided to keep putting on the pads. Earlier this week, he verbally committed to play football for West Virginia. "Going in the NBA, I'm only 6-6 . . . " Spears said. "Not to say I couldn't play forward in college.

On a sun-drenched Philadelphia day, Lynnette Shelley settled outside a warehouse at the Tioga Marine Terminal, paintbrush in hand. The warehouse didn't allow for much natural light, and to finish her masterpiece on the sixth day (on the seventh, she rested), she needed to see its vivid colors and make sure they matched. She touched up images of flora and fauna, and complex geometric patterns, until her donkey was resplendent. Let's backtrack a bit. On Friday, in celebration of the Democratic National Convention, 57 fiberglass donkeys are coming to town, courtesy of the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee, the city Mural Arts Program, and ArtJawn.

The first rule in elections is: Go for the votes you can get. By that measure, Hillary Clinton is right to try to put the old Obama coalition on steroids. Donald Trump will expand the Democrats' opportunities among nonwhite Americans and produce Clinton landslides among Latinos. They have good reason to fear and despise the man who has demeaned them. And watch Republicans for Clinton become a major force in American politics, an alliance of mostly well-off, well-educated voters - plus women of all classes.

The Berwick community has lost its beloved football coach. George Curry, who guided the Northeastern Pennsylvania school to six PIAA Class 3A state championships, died Friday at 71. He had ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, which had been diagnosed midway through last season. An undersize center and linebacker at Temple in the mid-1960s, Curry compiled a 455-102-5 record (.817 winning percentage) at three schools. He is the state's all-time winningest coach and ranks No. 5 in the nation.

NEW YORK - Some scribbled notes from the opening minutes of Sunday's Atlantic Ten championship game: Brown pull-up . . . Brown drive & dunk . . . Brown drives. That was from the first four minutes as St. Joseph's got in front of Virginia Commonwealth and stayed there at the Barclays Center. Hawks senior Aaron Brown exemplified what he later articulated, the need to get in the first punch. Asked about Brown and his game, St. Joe's teammate Isaiah Miles said postgame: "Oh, man, aggressive.

INDIANAPOLIS - Just three years after leaving Eastern Regional High School for Ohio State, Eli Apple is now a potential first-round NFL draft pick. The Voorhees native is one of the top cornerback prospects in the draft. He played only two seasons of college football, but he started both years for the Buckeyes, and his 6-foot-1, 199-pound frame fits the prototype for a press-coverage cornerback in the NFL. "That's something in the NFL that's really important, to be a physical guy at the line of scrimmage and be able to take receivers off their path," Apple said.

ATLANTIC CITY - Glenn Straub has a broken bone that's just not fitting into his schedule. It's an odd lump on the 69-year-old Florida billionaire's shoulder, some cracked something from a few months back that he never got checked out and probably won't. He figures that it's healing on its own or that he'll probably break it again, the same way he did before, playing full-contact polo atop 1,000-pound thoroughbreds with other wealthy men in tony ZIP codes. "Yeah, I fell off a horse for like the 47th time or something and broke something, but I don't have time to get it fixed," he says, a West Virginia drawl still deep in his voice.

THE TV in the middle of the newsroom is broadcasting the latest about a local shooting, which it always seems to be doing. This one in West Philly. At the same time I'm reading an article about a teenager who held students and a teacher at gunpoint in a West Virginia classroom, while I'm also obsessively scanning my Twitter feed for anything, everything about the horrific shootings of a Virginia reporter and cameraman on live television as they filmed a feature on tourism. When the gunman's name was released, I went looking for his Twitter feed and watched the shocking shootings that he recorded and later posted, and that now a huge part of me wishes I could unsee.
