Waiting two years for a shot at Division I basketball was something Davon Usher   had accepted over time. But the six extra weeks the former Digital Harbor star spent hoping for that elusive DI offer seemed nearly interminable. Usher, a 6-foot-6, 190-pound wing, had a solid junior college career at Polk State College in Winter Haven, Fla., averaging around nine points and seven rebounds for the Eagles as a sophomore. North Carolina Central, Western Illinois, San Jose State, Quinnipiac and North Carolina A&T were among the many DI programs interested in the former Rams standout, but reluctant to offer a scholarship.

With Notre Dame up 63-62 with 42 seconds remaining against Xavier in the second round of the NCAA tournament, Eric Atkins had the ball in his hands with designs on increasing the Irish's tenuous lead. The Mount St. Joseph grad took the inbounds pass and faced pressure from Musketeers defenders. Atkins eyed teammate Pat Connaughton , but lofted his pass into the stands for a devastating late turnover. On the next possession, Xavier's Tu Holloway connected on a fade-away jumper that gave the Musketeers a 64-63 edge.

RICHMOND, Va. - He was the one most feared by the Mississippi Valley State coaching staff and players, the one who figured to ruin whatever upset hopes the Delta Devils possessed in the NCAA East Regional.Georgetown sophomore Allen Iverson was the dominant topic of Thursday's news conference and an even bigger presence in yesterday's opening-round game, making the spectacular seem routine on his way to 31 points in the No. 2 seeded Hoyas' 93-56 defeat of 15th-seeded Mississippi Valley State at the Richmond Coliseum.

The enrollment is 99.6 percent black.But starting next week in a federal courthouse in Oxford, 120 miles northeast of here, lawyers for the state will try to persuade a judge that in the name of integration, it's time to close the university.

Washington -- The state of Mississippi is now spending almost precisely the same amount per student in its five overwhelmingly white and its three historically black institutions of higher education. But Mississippians were shocked last week when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that much more has to be done to remedy decades of financial and other discriminations against the black colleges.This has provoked talk of a financial ''crisis'' in which Mississippi might decide to close down Jackson State, Alcorn State and Mississippi Valley State, the black institutions that are attended by some 12,000 youngsters.
