This is true as far as it goes, but misleading. On June 23, 2003, the court decided the cases of Grutter v. Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger. In the Grutter case, the court upheld the affirmative action policy of the law school at the University of Michigan.

It is almost inconceivable that a team can hold Dunbar High to a single basket in eight minutes of basketball.But that's exactly what happened last night at the Towson Center, where Simon Gratz's monster defense nearly checked the Poets without a point in the third quarter.As a result, the nation's No. 1-ranked team forcefully eliminated the Poets from national championship contention with a 61-44 victory in the second annual Charm City Classic at the Towson Center.Dunbar (9-3) was still within striking distance at the half, but went scoreless for nearly seven minutes in the third quarter while Gratz scored 17 straight points and built an insurmountable lead.

A GLORIOUSLY whimsical carousel, the first all-wooden hand-carved specimen to be built in America since the 1930s, has become a symbol for the rebirth of Mansfield, Ohio -- an old manufacturing town seeking to find a new lease on life.Visit this carousel, opened in 1991, and you'll find strutting ostriches, roaring tigers, strolling zebras, assorted horses, even a giraffe with a monkey hanging on its back. The moving festival of fun and color is accompanied by military waltzes from a Stinson organ.

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- Michael Lloyd's tennis shoes are a memorial to his deceased best friend, Rodney Beasley, and a reminder of the tragedy that has befallen his idol, Magic Johnson.The names of both are written on each of the Dunbar senior guard's burgundy-and-white Nikes, and he has dedicated this season to both of them. Beasley was killed in an automobile accident last spring in which Lloyd was injured, and Johnson ended his NBA career last month after testing positive for the virus that causes AIDS.

But Emus can't beat Tar HeelsEastern Michigan is relinquishing its nickname, Hurons, but the suggested substitute for the native American Indian tribe is causing quite a flap in Ypsilanti.Are you ready for the emu, a large flightless bird similar to an ostrich? EMU also happen to be the school's initials.It's different, anyway.Incidentally, the nickname "Indians" was once commonplace among schools. In fact, the Stanford Indians beat the Dartmouth Indians in the 1942 NCAA basketball championship game.

He piles the letters in boxes at each end of his bed, another box in the corner, and a big trash bag in the middle of his room."I can't pick it up. I've just got to drag it and push it across the floor," says Rasheed Wallace, the 6-foot-11, 215-pound weakling whom many consider the best high school basketball player in the country.The letters started coming when Wallace was in ninth grade. Now there are more than 300, from virtually every college imaginable, and as Wallace points out, "I'm not even counting the ones lying around my room under my bed."
