In one of several important desegregation lawsuits in higher education, a federal judge ruled yesterday that Alabama and its state universities must change financing and admission policies and hire more black faculty members and administrators.The district judge, Harold Murphy of Rome, Ga., ruled that vestiges of racial discrimination remained in Alabama's higher education system. He ordered Alabama and its universities to devise plans to remedy those problems, and said he would retain jurisdiction over the case for the next 10 years to insure that the ruling was carried out.Judge Murphy's decision could become moot, however, because the U.S. Supreme Court is considering a similar case in Mississippi, the first time the court will address the question of desegregation in higher education.

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Alabama State rooting section raced down the steps of the RBC Center early last night, trying to razz the Duke players as they warmed up for their first- round game of the NCAA tournament. The Blue Devils barely blinked. Except for the first four minutes, when the Hornets showed some flair and fearlessness in matching Duke point-for-point on the scoreboard, the game was typical of most between a No. 16 seed and a No. 1 seed. In other words, a blowout. Despite playing point guard Chris Duhon sparingly because of the bruised ribs he suffered in Sunday's overtime loss to Maryland in the ACC tournament championship game, and despite shooting guard J.J. Redick's shooting slump continuing for all but a brief burst to open the second half, Duke rolled, 96-61.
