The East Coast Conference accepted State University of New York at Buffalo yesterday as its seventh member for the 1991-92 season, prompting commissioner John Carpenter to say last night that the league was stable.
Buffalo was voted in yesterday afternoon in a vote of the six school presidents, including Towson State president Hoke L. Smith, at league headquarters in Bordentown, N.J.
"Our immediate concern was to get things stable," Carpenter said. "Seven gives us more flexibility. I think our league has gained a lot of credibility for salvaging things."
