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."

The East Coast Conference is down to three colleges, but former members of the ECC are having a major impact on Division I basketball. In the final week of the regular season for most minor conferences, one-time members of the ECC are atop all four of the leagues to which they scattered.The leader of the North Atlantic Conference is Drexel, which moved to the NAC from the ECC in 1991. Delaware, which also moved from the ECC in 1991, went through the conference unbeaten last season, but it dropped to third place after losing Friday night to a Northeastern team with a strong Baltimore flavor.

The East Coast Conference, which will lose two members this year, announced yesterday that Brooklyn College will become a member this fall, a move that will give back to the conference its automatic bid to the National Collegiate Athletic Association men's basketball tournament.The University of Delaware and Drexel are leaving the ECC for the North Atlantic Conference, which would have left the conference with just five teams, one below the minimum required by the NCAA for an automatic bid to the tournament.

WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- An improbable turn of events snatched the East Coast Conference baseball title from UMBC, so the Retrievers will spend an anxious week hoping for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.On Sunday night, coach John Jancuska's fence-busters were 3-0 in the double-elimination tournament, one win away from becoming the first team to represent UMBC in an NCAA championship since the Retrievers moved up to Division I in 1986. Rider, however, rose up to take two straight from UMBC, earning its sixth ECC title in the past 10 years with yesterday's 5-4 victory at Mercer County Park.

A shaky financial picture in New England led the North Atlantic Conference to postpone expansion plans yesterday, leaving Towson State in the East Coast Conference for the 1991-92 school year.A member of the ECC since 1982, Towson State applied for membership in the North Atlantic in February. Eight athletic directors from that conference met in Boston yesterday, but before considering Towson State's application, they instead decided to table any expansion plans.Athletic director Bill Hunter said Towson State remains interested in the North Atlantic.

La Salle was there at the start of the East Coast Conference, as were Temple, St. Joseph's and American. Later migrations took Bucknell, Lafayette and Lehigh, and then Delaware and Drexel. The most recent movement in the never-ending realignment of Division I athletics has the ECC's days dwindling down to a precious few.The ECC opened for business in 1974 as a basketball coaches' conference, with Gary Williams, Paul Westhead, Tom Davis, Jim Valvano, Don Casey and Joe Harrington roaming the sidelines.

In the week leading up to the East Coast Conference tournament, Towson State coach Terry Truax kept saying that he'd prefer an opening-round game over a bye. It turns out that Truax got his wish -- and his Tigers still had what amounted to a bye.There's really no other way to explain Towson's record-setting, 122-58 win yesterday that ended a two-game losing streak and advanced the Tigers (15-13) to today's semifinals against Rider. Playing against an out manned Buffalo team in its first season of Division I, the Tigers scored the most points in school history -- and produced the widest margin of victory in an ECC tournament game.
