After Loyola won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship Monday night and earned an NCAA tournament berth a season after going 2-25, the players went bonkers. One assistant coach let out a frightful yell, and the others seemed to be in a state of shock.First-year coach Skip Prosser?He allowed himself a smile, shook hands with Manhattan coach Fran Fraschilla and leaned back on the scorer's table, soaking it all in. The NCAAs are what Prosser grew accustomed to during his eight seasons at Xavier, learning the Division I game as an assistant, and the NCAAs were one of the first things he spoke about when he was introduced as Greyhounds coach last April Fools' Day.If it's not part of the plan, it isn't going to happen.

WASHINGTON -- It is our recognition of what is familiar in the 60-year-old photograph, what is contemporary in it, that makes the whole image so chilling.A young athlete in white track suit, his carriage erect, his limbs sinewy, carries the Olympic torch aloft as he races past a sea of smiling spectators.But these spectators, hundreds upon hundreds of them, are wearing the muddy-colored uniform of the Hitler Youth, and behind them, banners three stories tall and bearing the Nazi swastika, obscure the whole horizon.

On the other three days, there are often appearances for sponsors and other commitments. When is there time for family? Every team can tell a tale of birthdays and anniversaries missed. Of children's ballgames and dance recitals unattended. Of separations and divorce. But seldom do those woes reach that point among the sport's stars, the drivers.

Maybe it's time for filmmakers to try telling one story at a time. Already this spring, Spider-Man 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End have committed the sin of cinematic overkill by trying to cram too many stories into a single film. And now Mr. Brooks, with Kevin Costner as a model citizen by day, serial killer by night, joins the list of the jam-packed. In addition to the story line centering on Mr. Brooks, there's one involving Demi Moore as an heiress-turned-detective with some serious parental issues to work out and another with Dane Cook as a serial killer wannabe.
