1. Man rescued by Chester prosecutor will make it after all to Florida - his destination before being caught in S.C. flood
George Osterhues - a Canadian man saved from a car caught in floodwaters in Columbia - will make it to Florida after all, again thanks to the local family who didn't hesitate to be heroes on Sunday. Tom and Julie Hall and their family - Julie Hall a Chester County prosecutor - rescued Osterhues from his vehicle almost completely submerged in floodwaters. He had stopped in Columbia on his way to Florida this past weekend. Tom Hall, a 1989 Citadel University graduate, posted on Facebook that Osterhues needed a ride to Florida and he says that within minutes, Citadel alumni stepped up to organize the trip. Osterhues' car was totaled in the flood that claimed lives and created devastation around much of South Carolina's state capitol city. "Incredible generous community at The Citadel," Hall said. The Herald's story of the Hall family saving 87-year-old Osterhues has become a national story of heroism.

3. Under Duggar Baucom, Citadel basketball will 'embrace the pace'
It's possible that no college basketball team in the country will undergo a more extensive makeover this season than The Citadel under new coach Duggar Baucom. Baucom, hired last March after 10 years at VMI, will take one of the slowest paced teams in the nation and turn it into what he hopes is the fastest. Hence the Bulldogs' new motto, "Embrace the pace." "Of all the teams I've rebuilt, this is certainly the most challenging," said Baucom, whose club started practice this week, "just because of all the different components." Last year, while going 11-19 in coach Chuck Driesel's fifth and final season, the Bulldogs played at an adjusted tempo of 59.3 possessions per game, a pace that ranked among the slowest in the nation (344th out of 351 Division I teams, according to stats guru Ken Pomeroy).
