DeAndre Daniels, a 6-foot-9 junior forward from Connecticut, announced Friday that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NBA draft while twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison of Kentucky said they have decided to play another year in college. Daniels, who starred at Woodland Hills Taft High, had stellar performances during the Huskies' run to the NCAA tournament title, averaging 16.7 points and 7.4 rebounds a game while shooting 48% from the field. UConn announced that junior guard Ryan Boatright, who averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season, would return for his senior season.

There is no one way to establish a legacy. You have win-and-run nomads like Larry Brown, who can't sit still in a chair for 10 minutes. Yet, Brown has won titles in the NCAA and the NBA and could, in two weeks, take your ragtag local youth team and win the YMCA title. You have guys like Don Nelson who have never won it all in coaching but have made enough horrible teams competitive to compile more coach-of-the-year trophies than Phil Jackson. Or you can be Jackson, align yourself with four or five of the all-time greatest players and Zen your way to 10 championships.

A special commission to determine the causes of the financial crisis is trying to pattern itself after the bipartisan panel that investigated the 2001 terrorist attacks -- but some Republicans say the deck already is stacked against them. The 10-person commission meeting for the first time today consists of six people selected by Democrats and four by the GOP, a departure from the even split on the so-called 9/11 commission. And it's headed by longtime loyalists from each party, which some worry could lead to partisan disputes as the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission tackles the politically explosive task of what triggered the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression.

I thoroughly disagree with Margaret Echevarria's letter saying that staying home with children is "the single most disempowering decision women make" (April 12). As a career woman who is taking off five years to stay at home, I can tell you, it is very empowering to take control of my life and the lives of my young children. GRETCHEN GOLDSMITH Torrance

After weeks of rumors, Elisabeth Hasselbeck finally told the audience of ABC's daytime talk show "The View" Friday that she won't be leaving them. "I am not going anywhere," Hasselbeck told her co-hosts when one of them asked directly if she was staying. Rumors to the contrary began circulating last month as the show's "Hot Topics" segment brought about increasingly heated arguments between the right-leaning Hasselbeck and the other women over this year's presidential election. -- Denise Martin

Re "Bursting Obama's BlackBerry bubble," Opinion, Dec. 13 I couldn't disagree more with Eric Weiner's Op-Ed article. It's not about whether Barack Obama has his BlackBerry on his belt; it's about Obama staying in touch. My fear for Obama is that he loses touch -- that he falls prey to pitfalls of previous administrations and governments, here in the U.S. and around the world. Let Obama do what he does best, which is knowing the wants, needs and devil-in-the-details of the people he represents.

It seems to me an easy deal to make. Why don't the networks agree to not charge for campaign commercials in exchange for the government staying out of the ratings debate. DAVID A. KOWAL Los Angeles

Blake Griffin's word of choice to describe the Clippers' turnaround was "relaxed. " The Clippers blew out the Golden State Warriors, 138-98, on Monday night to even their Western Conference first-round playoff series at 1-1. The 138 points were the most the Clippers had scored in a playoff game in franchise history. Their 40-point margin was also a franchise record for a playoff game. And the 35 points Griffin scored were his playoff career high. The Clippers even went 32 for 35 (91.4%)

Team U.S.A. dominated Easter weekend as Disney's "Captain America: Winter Soldier" fended off its competition at the box office, holding onto the No. 1 spot for the third week in a row by drawing in $26.6 million. Brazil came in second with 20th Century Fox's animated family favorite "Rio 2" pulling in a solid $22.5 million. Faith was not forgotten over the holiday weekend, as Sony TriStar's "Heaven is for Real" opened at No. 3 with $21.5 million. PHOTOS: 75 images from 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' The only story of disappointment came from Warner Bros.' sci-fi thriller "Transcendence," which stars Johnny Depp and took in a meager $11.2 million.

Ex-NFL star Darren Sharper will remain in a Los Angeles jail pending another court hearing next month, the latest development in the ongoing sexual assault investigations against the former safety that stretch across five states. Friday marked the 38-year-old's third appearance in a Los Angeles courtroom this week. Superior Court Judge Renee Korn delayed the others pending an Arizona judge's decision on whether Sharper was eligible for bail on the charges he faces there. After a two-day hearing in Phoenix, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Warren Granville ruled Thursday that Sharper was not entitled to bail on one of the five counts.

Next time Hyun-Jin Ryu starts at home, disguise Dodger Stadium. Put a giant Coke bottle beyond left field. Add a pool in center. Slap Petco Park signs in the dugout or something. Anything to make Ryu believe he's pitching on the road, where currently he isĀ invincible. Ryu was at it again Thursday afternoon, holding the Giants scoreless in his seven innings to help the Dodgers salvage the finale of their three-game series at AT&T Park with a 2-1 victory. The Dodgers now return home Friday to begin a 10-game homestand, tied with the Giants for first in the National League West with a 10-6 record.

The crowd roared around him and the Dallas Stars pushed and shoved in front of him, but goaltender Frederik Andersen was the most composed person at Honda Center on Wednesday. That's exactly what the Ducks were hoping for when they chose the redheaded rookie to start their playoff opener. The more softly he speaks, the more controlled his movements are when he's in goal, the better the chance he will excel and they will benefit. They knew he was quiet by nature. After his 32-save performance Wednesday in their 4-3 victory, they also know he's immune to the jitters playoff hockey can trigger.

Looking to cut costs, and gain media attention, the book world's annual national convention is staying in New York through 2012. BookExpo America traditionally rotates among cities around the country. Already scheduled for New York this May, the show had been scheduled for Washington in 2010 and Las Vegas in 2011. BEA show manager Lance Fensterman said in a statement Tuesday that staying in New York will provide the majority of exhibitors with a cost reduction -- and more flexibility in managing their presence at the show.

I have sincere friends in China who want us to come back. This is the time to travel in China. The hotels must be under-crowded and the service must be abundant. China is so beautiful, so let's not punish ourselves by staying away. R. VAN DE GENACHTE Ventura

PORTLAND - The Clippers played out the string of an 82-game regular-season schedule on Wednesday night, knowing before they tipped off against the Portland Trail Blazers that their playoff opponent had been set. So with three starters back in Los Angeles resting, the Clippers rallied from 22 points down behind Jamal Crawford's 34 points only to lose, 110-104, to the Trail Blazers at the Moda Center. The third-seeded Clippers (57-25) will open the first round of the Western Conference playoffs against the sixth-seeded Golden State Warriors (51-31)

A federal judge in Cincinnati could decide as soon as Tuesday whether to grant a stay on his ruling in a same-sex marriage case involving Ohio recognition of such unions performed in other states. U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Black on Monday ruled that Ohio must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states but indicated in his decision that he is inclined to issue a stay of that decision while the case is appealed. He gave the parties until Tuesday afternoon to file their motions for a stay and said he would act on the issue quickly.
