Most of the time Saint Louis University plays over its head. The opposition is up there on an extension ladder, physically speaking, but the fury with which it plays defense is why it has survived to play another day in the NCAA basketball championship. Overmatched in ability but not outplayed. That's a compliment; not an indictment.The story of the team nicknamed the Billikens has to do with resolve, determination and inspiration. They have the tenacity of a pack of wildcats that haven't been fed since the last full moon.

"Political cover" is a powerful phenomenon in contemporary politics. But it can make voters plenty cynical about the ways and means of political warfare. It's typically utilized wherever a well-known progressive Democrat speaks or acts outside of permissible lines, i.e., crosses the politically correct police with an insensitive (or worse) comment on the public stage. On such occasions, the mainstream press will duly note the offensive comment. Appropriate, albeit limited, criticism will follow.

The Maryland men's soccer team will be up against a familiar opponent when it plays Saint Louis in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament today at 1 p.m. in College Park. Last year, the Billikens came to Ludwig Field and were turned away by the Terrapins, who won that match, 1-0, in overtime on their way to the College Cup - a trip that would be repeated with a win today. Its name might be one of the few things that hasn't changed about Saint Louis (15-3-3), the tournament's seventh seed.

Fred Bronstein, president of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, will become the new head of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University on June 1. His title will be dean, rather than the previous, longtime designation of director, in keeping with JHU's practice with its other academic divisions. "For quite some time, I was thinking I would eventually make this kind of a move," Bronstein said in a phone interview from St. Louis. "This seemed like the optimal opportunity.

What: Second round, NCAA East Regional.Where: Baltimore Arena.When: Today, approximately 2:40 p.m.TV: Channel 13.First-round results: Wake Forest routed North Carolina A&T, 79-47. Saint Louis defeated Minnesota, 64-61, in overtime.Outlook: North Carolina's loss to Boston College last year was the only time since 1990 a No. 1 seed didn't get to the Sweet 16, but Demon Deacons center Tim Duncan said that reminder was irrelevant to Wake Forest's focus. The Demon Deacons have won 11 in a row, are playing together and have a considerable size advantage on the Billikens.

ST. LOUIS -- The keystone of Loyola's 19-game unbeaten streak was a tough defense that came into its NCAA third-round game having allowed just five goals in its past 18 games. Not since Sept. 2 had a team scored more than one goal against the Greyhounds. Last night, however, Loyola ran into a Saint Louis University team that features the nation's leading goal scorer, Dipsy Selolwane, whohad scored at least two goals in all but two games this season. The 11th-ranked Greyhounds were able to hold off the Billikens, but only for a while.

A year ago, it was as if Saint Louis arrived in the NCAA tournament in Cinderella's pumpkin. The Billikens were one of the season's most provocative rags-to-riches stories.This year, though, the element of surprise was absent when Saint Louis was seeded ninth in the East.This is a team that has won 45 of 58 games over the past two seasons, that almost toppled Cincinnati in the Great Midwest tournament last week, that has had three lineup changes in coach Charlie Spoonhour's three seasons.

Midwest is toughest Dom Amore Hartford Courant The toughest? Louisville's Midwest. The Cardinals have Duke at No. 2, Michigan State at No. 3, Missouri at No. 9. Memphis, which tore through Conference USA, is a No. 6. Next, I'd go with the East because Miami, the first team to win the ACC regular-season and tournament titles and not get a No. 1, is the No. 2 behind Indiana here. Big East team Marquette is at No. 3, and Syracuse is at No. 4. Kansas may be starting in Kansas City in the South, but it has Georgetown in its bracket at No. 2. Florida and Michigan, another former No. 1, are behind them.

At a little past five o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, darkness began to interrupt practice when Loyola men's soccer coach Mark Mettrick announced the next goal would be the winner. A couple of shots were sprayed wide and another was stopped when it was halfway across the goal line. Sometime later, when it was much darker, Niall Lepper cleanly struck a half volley to finally end the session. It was obvious just how much the Greyhounds were treasuring the fact that, here it is after Thanksgiving, and they're still playing ball.
