Philadelphia University won the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference title - and the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament - with an impressive 77-68 win Saturday night over Wilmington University in the Gallagher Center. The Wildcats (11-19) ran out to a 18-13 lead on a couple of free throws by Kevin Ohen, but that would be it. The Rams (23-7) tied it at 20 all with 10 minutes, 25 seconds remaining, and never trailed afterward. The Rams were led by their two starting forwards: Derek Johnson scored 22 points and Peter Alexis chipped in 18, to avenge an earlier 72-70 loss to the Wildcats.

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Penn State's limit on scholarships was like "an anchor around your neck. " But the anchor proved futile in limiting Penn State. First-year coach James Franklin quickly assembled a 2015 recruiting class that is ranked in the top 10 by several recruiting services. Imagine what Franklin and his staff might be able to do now that the anchor was lifted Monday when the NCAA decided to drop the sanctions it levied in 2012 against Penn State.

Here's the thing to watch in this year's campaign: Democrats are trying to be populists and pro-business moderates at the same time. The tea party's success in transforming the Republican Party is making this two-step possible as conservatism's increasingly ferocious opposition to government creates points of friction with both business and middle-class constituencies. On the one hand: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) traveled to West Virginia on Monday to lift her party's underdog Senate candidate, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant.

THE GENERAL Assembly is now grappling with what could be Gov. Corbett's last budget. And given some of the obstacles to finishing it, we're grappling with the best way to characterize the story it tells. Is it "Back to the Future"? Or "Welcome to Pennsyltucky"? (We are not disparaging the rest of the state, which is sometimes referred to as Pennsyltucky, but conveying a general theme of "backward. " If you're an "Orange Is the New Black" fan, you'll know it refers to the meth-addled hillbilly character.)

Edgar Friedrichs quietly left the Interboro School District 41 years ago, and his principal wrote him a recommendation that was cryptic at best. The fifth-grade teacher at Prospect Park Elementary had "fulfilled his teaching responsibilities" and had "a good rapport" with peers and parents, Robert Castle wrote. The letter concluded: "I would be happy to discuss any further observations with a prospective employer. " But none called. Friedrichs had been allowed to quietly resign from the Delaware County school amid allegations that he molested some of his students, including a boy who said the teacher raped him in a book closet.

National Signing Day came and went on Feb. 7. Glenn Garrison, a standout senior linebacker at Gloucester Catholic, didn't have a scholarship offer. But he had a dream. An old one, as it turns out. "For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to play at West Virginia," Garrison said this week. Garrison will get his chance to play for his dream team. He will attend West Virginia as a preferred walk-on, with a chance to earn a scholarship after redshirting as a freshman.

John Reid never bit on the gadget play. He was too seasoned for that. The St. Joseph's Prep cornerback reached behind him and snatched the interception with his right hand. La Salle picked the wrong guy last season to trick with a flea flicker. He was just a junior, but Reid was already a captain for the football power. And plays such as that have grabbed the attention of premier college programs. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder has scholarship offers from Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State, Miami, Penn State, and many others.
