One of the dance steps in the conference shuffle this summer was Loyola listening to the sales pitch of the Midwest Collegiate Conference.This is Loyola's third year in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, a group of like-minded institutions the Greyhounds have been quick to praise in the past. The Midwest Collegiate Conference is in a mood to expand east, and this summer it talked to, among others, Duquesne and St. Joseph's of the Atlantic 10, and LaSalle and Loyola of the MAAC.The MCC this year lost Marquette and St. Louis to the newly formed Great Midwest Conference.

When the Loyola men's basketball team starts play in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament today in Albany, N.Y., it does so as the league's ninth-place team, matched against eighth-seeded Canisius in a 4: 45 p.m. game. Still, third-year coach Dino Gaudio's enthusiasm seems infectious, in spite of the hurdles his team has tried to clear during a 7-20 season that includes a 4-14 MAAC mark. "We've always won the first-round game, then come within an eyelash of beating a pretty good team," said Gaudio, whose team nearly upset eventual NCAA qualifiers Iona and Niagara in successive MAAC tournaments.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- They obviously weren't ready for the uniforms to be put away, but the Loyola men's basketball team can take solace now that a frustrating roller-coaster ride of a season is over. The Greyhounds' season ended last night with an 83-69 loss to Canisius in the first round of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament. Loyola, which finished the regular season in ninth place for the second consecutive year, lost 15 of its final 17 games and closed with a 7-21 record. "I'm not glad that I have to stop playing basketball," said sophomore guard Damien Jenifer, who finished with 19 points to share game-high scoring honors with teammate Donovan Thomas.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- She walked to the bench at 11: 33 Saturday morning, the final time she would be on court as a member of the Loyola women's basketball team. With no outward signs of emotion, Jennifer Bongard grabbed a towel with one hand, a drink with the other, and started shouting encouragement to teammates. With that, she moved on to the next chapter of her basketball life, as she is likely to be part of Loyola's staff in some capacity next season. Bongard's final chance at a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship ended at Pepsi Arena yesterday, as sixth-seeded Loyola lost to second-seeded St. Peter's, 66-41, in the semifinals.

Around the perimeter* STILL A GOOD CATCH: Four years ago, the St. John's women's program was in the recruiting chase for Walbrook's twin towers. Dafne Lee ended up at Maryland, but St. John's gladly took Cozette Ballentine.St. John's is disappointed in its current 12-9 record, but Ballentine is putting the finishing touches on a solid career. A 6-foot forward, she leads the team in scoring and rebounding with averages of 19.0 and 9.0, respectively. She's making 47.8 percent of her field-goal attempts and 70 percent of her free throws, and is St. John's third-leading shot-blocker.

What do Georgetown, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, Syracuse and Villanova have in common? All call the Big East Conference home, unless the sport is lacrosse. Then Georgetown and Rutgers go to the ECAC; Notre Dame heads up the Great Western League, Providence drops down to the Metro Atlantic, and Villanova jumps at the chance to join the Colonial Athletic Association. Syracuse? Like the 800-pound bear, it goes wherever it wants. Once the fallout from automatic qualifiers being forced on Division I lacrosse settles, the Orangemen and Johns Hopkins could be the only independents left.

As hard as it might be to believe that the woes of a Virginia-based conference might resonate in Baltimore, it's certainly true. When East Carolina, American, and Richmond all announced plans to leave the Colonial Athletic Association, based in Richmond, it meant that the now-depleted conference needed to search for new partners. One of those partners would have been America East, which included Towson, a school the CAA snubbed during the early part of the 1990s. Despite that dismissal, as the Tigers' program was looking for a home after the East Coast Conference disbanded, school president Hoke Smith and athletic director Wayne Edwards supported expansion that would merge the America East and CAA. That expansion was rejected in a meeting of America East presidents on Tuesday.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The team with the best defense in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference played the team with the best offense yesterday. Fortunately for the Loyola women's basketball team, defense prevailed. Senior forward Jennifer Bongard scored a season-high 23 points, and junior Erica Rath added 17 yesterday afternoon, as sixth-seeded Loyola moved into the women's semifinals of the MAAC tournament for the eighth consecutive year by upsetting third-seeded Niagara, 77-74, at Pepsi Arena.

Around the perimeter* SHARP-SHOOTING NEWCOMERS -- Clemson is 14-11 overall, but the Tigers and Maryland share the cellar in the ACC. The Tigers might be doing better if the ball found its way more often to Devin Gray and Corey Wallace.Gray, a Baltimore All-Metro for St. Frances-Charles Hall, has been a fixture in the Clemson lineup recently. He's averaging 10.8 points and 5.0 rebounds. The 6-6 freshman forward began the season by making 30 of his first 43 field-goal attempts, and after a January slump, his shooting percentage is back up to 53.7.

Over the weekend, a number of teams in the nine major conferences will suddenly take an interest in the welfare of Boston University and the College of Charleston.The committee that puts together the 64-team field for the NCAA men's basketball tournament has developed a soft spot for teams that dominate middle-of-the-road conferences but are upset in league tournaments. The trend has meant one fewer at-large berth for the major conferences, some David vs. Goliath story lines and back-patting at the NCAA.
