Former Towson Catholic basketball standout Keith Jenifer has enrolled at Murray State (Ky.) University of the Ohio Valley Conference after leaving Virginia last March 5 following an indefinite suspension from the team. The Feb. 3 suspension was a result of Jenifer's arrest in Charlottesville the day before on assault and battery charges stemming from a fight outside a bar shortly after midnight. The charge was later dismissed. Jenifer, who was released from his scholarship in March, has two years of eligibility remaining.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Murray State president Kern Alexander fancies the small Kentucky school as potentially a Princeton of the South. Not in basketball, but in books. The Racers might be similar to the Tigers in another regard -- the little-known team most feared going into this year's NCAA tournament.There was still some doubt before yesterday's Ohio Valley Conference tournament final at the Nashville Arena about Murray State's viability as one of the 34 at-large teams had it lost to Tennessee State.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Tim Smith's layup bounced off the rim, but teammate James Anthony made sure East Tennessee State still wasn't done. Anthony's put-back off his rebound, too, bounced off the rim, but teammate Zakee Wadood again kept the Buccaneers alive. It wasn't until Wadood's subsequent put-back bounced off the rim and into the hands of Cincinnati forward Jason Maxiell that East Tennessee State looked, finally, to be finished. But even as the seconds were winding down, it was impossible to count out the Buccaneers.

Murray State got awfully close to a second straight bracket-busting upset before Butler reminded the Racers which small school almost always plays big in March. Ronald Nored's three-point play snapped a tie with 25.4 seconds left, and Butler narrowly evaded a second stunner by the 13th-seeded Racers in three days, advancing to the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament with a 54-52 victory Saturday in San Jose, Calif. Nored scored 15 points and Gordon Hayward had 12 before making the decisive defensive play for the fifth-seeded Bulldogs (30-4)

Et cetera Raffetto to resign as CEO of steeplechase organization National Steeplechase Association CEO Lou Raffetto will step down after the spring season, effective June 30. "My goal from the outset was to stimulate growth and increase revenue for the NSA," said Raffetto, 59, formerly the president of the Maryland Jockey Club. "We got some things accomplished in a very short time frame and laid the groundwork for future growth. ... Unfortunately, the depressed economic situation and some stringent state and federal regulations stalled some of our immediate plans regarding pari-mutuel wagering and simulcasting at our premier race meets."

Bucknell isn't Bucknell anymore. Oh, the Bison are back in the NCAA tournament for a second consecutive year, but they're no longer the same charming underdog that wrecked office pools throughout the country last spring. They've become the establishment. The Patriot League champion was awarded a No. 9 seed in the NCAA tournament. That's a higher line than the one occupied by North Carolina State of the ACC, Alabama of the SEC and Seton Hall of the Big East. No matter what the Bison do in their first game against No. 8 Arkansas tomorrow, it will not have the impact of a 14th seed taking down mighty Kansas.
