MIAMI - In yesterday's episode of As The University of Miami Turns, president Donna Shalala and athletic director Paul Dee spent much of the day on the telephone with representatives from the Big East and Atlantic Coast Conference, weighing offers as tomorrow's decision looms. Shalala is scheduled to announce Miami's intention at 4 p.m. tomorrow, and both conferences are romancing the Hurricanes. Officials from both conferences offered to fly to Miami to woo UM officials in person, but Shalala and Dee did not believe it was necessary, and they continued to gather information via telephone, fax and e-mail.

New York -- The Big East is out to prove it is the best college basketball league. It is definitely the biggest ever, and no player is more highly regarded in that unwieldy 16-team monster than Rudy Gay. Connecticut's 6-foot-9 sophomore forward, who prepped at Archbishop Spalding, was voted preseason co-Player of the Year by the Big East coaches. Gay shares that advance notice with Syracuse guard Gerry McNamara. Gay was co-Rookie of the Year last season with Georgetown's Jeff Green, but in all-Big East balloting in 2004-05, he was not among the 20 players voted first, second or third team, and didn't even merit honorable mention.

Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese vowed yesterday to fight for the future of his conference, but admitted that the University of Miami ultimately will decide the fate of the league's 13 other schools. Miami, Syracuse and Boston College were invited last week to join the Atlantic Coast Conference by the ACC's presidents and chancellors. The three schools are expected to make a decision by the end of next month. "This is a crisis," Tranghese said in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., where the Big East will conclude its annual spring meeting today.

Miami continued to make the Atlantic Coast Conference wait yesterday, after the league's lengthy expansion process did the same to the school over the past few months. At a news conference yesterday, Miami president Donna Shalala said that no vote emerged from a meeting between herself and the school's 19-member board of trustees. Despite the ACC's official invitation Wednesday, the school might not make a decision until Monday. Monday is the final day Miami can leave the Big East without its exit fee doubling to $2 million.

Considering the pedigree of their respective programs, it is no surprise that No. 2 Syracuse and No. 20 Pittsburgh have made nearly flawless transitions from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Orange won a national championship with freshman Baltimore product Carmelo Anthony in 2003 and have played in four Final Fours under Hall-of-Fame coach Jim Boeheim, most recently last season. The Panthers, with one of the toughest homecourts in the country, were the Big East's winningest team over the past 10 years with Jamie Dixon as their coach.

Kate McHarg had a career-high nine goals and two assists, helping No. 11 Loyola defeat Rutgers, 17-10, yesterday at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field, giving the Greyhounds their inaugural Big East Conference victory. Loyola became an associate member of the Big East for women's lacrosse this season. The Greyhounds (3-2, 1-0) outshot the Scarlet Knights (2-2, 0-1) 37-22. McHarg took just 10 shots to get her nine goals. Maura Kenny added four goals for Loyola. Kate Shomo and Michelle Poole each finished with three goals for Rutgers.

PHILADELPHIA -- With Virginia Tech joining the Big East next season, the conference will split into two seven-team divisions for men's basketball. It also will alter the format of the postseason tournament in New York so that the last-place team in each division stays home. Under the new format, Villanova would participate in a division with Connecticut, Boston College, Miami, Providence, St. John's and Virginia Tech, all of whom would play on a home-and-home basis. However, the Wildcats would play only four teams from the other division to complete their 16-game schedule.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Athletic directors of the Big East's eight football-playing members are scheduled to meet this morning at this Florida resort. Paul Dee of Miami, Gene DeFilippo of Boston College and Jake Crouthamel of Syracuse would each be well-advised to wear a coat. The room could get a little chilly. Today will be the first time the Big East ADs have met face- to-face since the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Friday that it will hold discussions with those three schools about joining their league.

When the Big East was formed 24 years ago, it was essentially a basketball league with a small football presence centered on Syracuse and Boston College. Eventually, the league expanded its membership to include Miami, and its football profile changed dramatically. Those three schools appear to be at the center of what could turn into the Big East's demise. With Tuesday's announcement that the presidents and chancellors of the nine Atlantic Coast Conference schools voted 7-2 to push forward with expansion, it appears that Miami is a formal invitation away from leaving the Big East.
