Boeheim: I'm returning

Brimming with confidence, Ja’Quan Newton, the 6-foot-2 point guard is having a torrid summer. Newton, who stars for South Philadelphia’s Neumann-Goretti High during the school year, has strung together stellar performances with Team Final in AAU play. As a result, his college recruiting has reached another level. Villanova, one of Newton’s longtime suitors, remains in the running along with Georgetown, Miami, Syracuse, Temple, and St. Joseph’s, among others. Newton expects to get an offer from UCLA; he received a phone call last week from Bruins coach Steve Alford.
