NEWARK, Del. - Delaware was down by 20 points with under 9 minutes left and the fans were beginning to empty from Bob Carpenter Center, which was nothing new to the Blue Hens' men's basketball program. The student section stuck around longer than usual, although it was only a quarter full to begin with. Little did those fans know that Feb. 5 would be the night Baltimore native Davon Usher would bring Delaware back to relevancy. With under a minute to play, Usher stripped Cougars guard Anthony Thomas and went coast to coast, evading four defenders on his way to the rim. The 6-foot-6 senior guard flipped the ball through the net, sending Delaware on its way to a 67-64 victory.

At 14 years and 11 months, Devon T. Richardson found himself charged with the murder of a 67-year-old receptionist. She was killed by a ricocheting bullet fired from a rifle that Devon and some friends found in an abandoned house. Now, at 15, Devon faces 10 years in prison. That's because state law required that he be prosecuted as an adult in a criminal justice system intended for men, not boys. And a Baltimore circuit judge, who had the discretionary power to do so, declined to have him tried as a juvenile.

There's a good chance you would have run into Devon Saddler this summer if you wandered into the Bob Carpenter Center most days at 6 a.m. If you came back at 11 a.m., the Aberdeen grad would likely still have been on the court at Delaware's basketball facility. If you strolled back into the Blue Hens' arena between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m., it's probable that you would have encountered Saddler again. What better way to end a summer day - which also included weight lifting and class - than four more hours in the gym?

The play, which runs through Oct. 28 at the C Street theater, takes the audience on a dramatic journey, where the supernatural, a bit of mystery and themes of racism, sexism and gambling addiction come to life in often-times explosive ways.
