Iakeem Alston left Baltimore last summer for a two-year stint in Wyoming, where he encountered cowboys, “two feet of snow” and the perfect situation for his basketball career. At Sheridan (Wyo.) College, the former Dunbar star played a major role as a freshman, starred at several junior-college showcases, and earned a handful of Division I scholarship offers. On Monday, Alston committed to St. Bonaventure, fulfilling his longstanding goal to play DI basketball somewhere on the East Coast.

— The Notre Dame women's basketball team sent a quick message to its wannabe Cinderella opponent in Sunday's NCAA tournament game at PNC Arena: Glass slippers are for fairy tales, not for the Sweet 16. The top-seeded Irish bullied their way through ball screens on defense, holding St.Bonaventure's leading scorer without a point and leaving the rest of the Bonnies — including their coach, Jim Crowley — hopeless in a 79-35 victory. The win sent Notre Dame (33-3) into Tuesday's regional final against second-seeded Maryland (31-4)

Loyola's Justin Drummond scored a career-high 26 points, two coming on a tip-in that cut host St. Bonaventure's lead to six with 4:06 remaining, but the Bonnies held off the Greyhounds men's basketball team for a 76-66 nonconference win Sunday afternoon, ending Loyola's eight-game winning streak. Drummond scored 15 points in the second half as Loyola (8-2) came back from a 43-28 halftime deficit. He made 10 of 19 shots, including two 3-pointers, and all four of his free throws to eclipse his previous career best of 22, set last December at Georgetown.

My wife and I live in Abingdon and visited Savannah, Ga., in June. On our way to the airport to return home, we stopped to visit Bonaventure Cemetery, made famous in John Berendt's book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The cemetery is bordered by the Wilmington River. As we walked away from the river and headed back to the cemetery entrance, I turned to look back. The majestic oak trees covered with hanging Spanish moss and the dappled shadows on the ground made an image that captured our impressions of Savannah and the South.

Former St. Bonaventure athletic director Gothard Lane defended his reputation one day after he resigned his position, the latest fallout from an academic scandal in the men's basketball program. "It's not a thing you want to put on your mantelpiece, but that's why I want to put my story out there," Lane said last night, ending a two-month silence since the controversy erupted and the team cut its season short. Lane and coach Jan van Breda Kolff were both ousted on Thursday. Earlier, the board of trustees had obtained the resignation of Dr. Robert J. Wickenheiser after an inquiry found that he pushed for a player's eligibility without the NCAA's required associate degree or its equivalent.

The end of St. Bonaventure's men's basketball season also could damage the careers of two administrators with local ties who went to the Olean, N.Y., campus from Maryland. Robert J. Wickenheiser resigned under pressure earlier this week as St. Bonaventure's president, the same post he held at Mount St. Mary's for 16 years. Athletic director Gothard Lane, who had been an assistant athletic director at Maryland for three decades before going to St. Bonaventure in 1999, was placed on administrative leave.

Craig King admits that playing collegiate baseball in upstate New York for St. Bonaventure University in April isn't exactly an ideal situation. "It's cold here and it's not like playing in Baltimore," said the junior second baseman from Cardinal Gibbons. "But I think warm weather all the time and it helps me a lot." It doesn't hurt either that his home runs are up over last year (three compared with two last season) and his batting average has climbed to .348 over .336 last season. The three homers tie him for the team lead, he is third in batting average, third in slugging percentage (.545)
