Nothing odd about tornadoes in Kansas. The state lies right in the center of the flat Midwestern prairie known as Tornado Alley, where fast-moving funnels of air are so common that one became a literary device - used to lift Dorothy's house to Oz in L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel. And yet the magnitude of devastation when a small town such as Greensburg, Kan., gets literally knocked flat commands attention. It's a reminder of the vast power of nature to take away as well as to give. And of the predictable dangers that threaten Americans every day for which the nation could be better prepared.

Andre Collins scored 17 points and had four assists as Loyola held off Rider, 69-66, last night, giving the Greyhounds their third win in the past four games. Loyola (14-12, 7-10 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) appeared to be in command late in the second half, but the Broncs (8-18, 4-13) went on an 11-3 run to cut the lead to 67-66 with 21 seconds left. The Greyhounds' defense then stiffened, and they sealed the win with two free throws in the closing seconds. Loyola went 11 for 15 from the free-throw line in the final three minutes, including three in the final 30 seconds by Josko Alujevic, who finished with 13 points and six rebounds.
