When Chirag Vani, 27, stepped onto the field for the title match at the American College Cricket national championship last month, he and the rest of the UMBC cricket club were confident. "We had won the Mid-Atlantic Regional last year, so we had momentum going forward," Vani said. "We were confident that we had a very good team this year. It wasn't really a surprise, but everything came together at the right time. " UMBC emerged victorious, defeating South Florida by five wickets in the final in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Vani, who plays wicketkeeper and batsman, hopes the growth of the national championships - from approximately 10 teams in the inaugural tournament in 2009 to 28 this year - helps the sport gain recognition.

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA -- Back home in Chapel Hill or Boston or Austin, college basketball's annual rite of spring blends easily, even unavoidably, into the rhythms of campus life. But here, on the southernmost tip of the African continent, where expatriate American students find themselves about 3,000 miles closer to the South Pole than the magnetic pole that is Indianapolis this weekend, the NCAA tournament happens in the early hours of the morning and through great effort, or not at all. Games at "2 a.m. are OK, but 5 a.m. is really inconvenient," says Carrie Beason, a junior at Washington University in St. Louis who is spending this semester at the University of Cape Town.

Indiana's Richard Mourdock, Illinois' Joe Walsh and Missouri's Todd Akin aren't doctors. They are Republicans running for the U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives. But they appear to have special knowledge of how a woman's body works, not to mention the mind of God. Mr. Mourdock is the latest, saying last week that if a woman became pregnant as a result of rape, "that is something God intended to happen. " Mr. Akin, like Mr. Mourdock a candidate for the Senate, famously said in August that a woman's reproductive processes would shut down during "legitimate rape," and she wouldn't conceive.

Carol Carr's diagnosis of colorectal cancer at age 44 ("Colon cancer rises for young," July 30) underscores the point that even though current national guidelines for average risk individuals call for colon screening to start at age 50, there are important exceptions. Anyone experiencing symptoms like Ms. Carr's should talk to a gastroenterologist. African-Americans fall into a high-risk category and are another exception to the rule to start screening at age 50. The American College of Gastroenterology in its official screening guidelines recommends that African-Americans should start younger - at age 45 - because they face a higher incidence of colorectal cancer generally, have more cancers in the right side of the colon, as well as potentially more aggressive tumors.
