The number 256 (28) was chosen because it is the number of distinct values that can be represented with a byte, a value well known to programmers. 256 is also the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year.

Bethea, who attends Archbishop Wood High School in Philadelphia, is rated the No. 7 recruit in the ‘24 class by ESPN.com, while 247Sports.com puts him at No. 20.
Prior to his visit to Miami, Bethea visited Villanova and Kansas. He previously visited Syracuse last fall after receiving a scholarship offer from the SU coaches.
Reached via text, Bethea’s father refused to comment.
If Bethea commits to Miami as expected, it will continue the Hurricanes’ success in recruiting out of Philadelphia. Former Miami players Ja’Quan Newton, Lonnie Walker IV and Davon Reed are all Philadelphia natives. All three played AAU ball with Team Final, which is the same AAU club that Bethea plays for.
In addition, Miami assistant coach DJ Irving previously coached for Team Final and was also an assistant at Philadelphia’s Roman Catholic High School.

The traveling baseball bash is set to visit Syracuse on Thursday, and the cheapest ticket on the three main resale platforms (StubHub, Seat Geek and Vivid Seats) is $90 with fees. Face value for all of those tickets is $25.
The Savannah Banana experience combines athletes and entertainers into a show that balances baseball, backflips and break-dancing. While baseball has developed a reputation as a slow-moving game that doesn’t appeal to younger fans, the Bananas tricks are tailor-made for those who grew up on social media and seek constant engagement.
The team has 2 million followers on Instagram from across the country. To put that in perspective, the popular Syracuse men’s basketball team has 129,000.
