John Chaney recruited Aaron McKie from one of Philadelphia's most impoverished neighborhoods, just a short walk from Temple University's inner-city campus.He recruited Huey Futch from Naranja, Fla. -- just outside Homestead -- and the ravages of Hurricane Andrew.And once, as legend has it, he recruited a 7-footer named Eddie Geiger out of a car wash. That was back in the late 1970s, before Temple, when Chaney still coached at what is now Cheyney (Pa.) University.When Chaney brings his 24th-ranked Owls to the Baltimore Arena for a nonconference game against Maryland tomorrow, you can glimpse all their distinctive trademarks.

Once again, Kinetics Dance Theatre has reinvented itself. Since last August, choreographer Anne-Alex Packard has held the artistic reins for the Howard County-based dance company. The company's recent debut performance at the Baltimore Museum of Art demonstrated that Packard has friends in high places willing to help the choreographer put her best foot forward.Kinetics' newly reconstituted company of eight women relied heartily on guest artists to pull the performance together. Overall, this established a rocky sense of accomplishment with Packard's dances almost lost in the shuffle of personalities.

As a former college baseball coach, I implore Towson University President Maravene S. Loeschke to reconsider her decision to drop the school's baseball and soccer programs ("Ire grows after Towson president cuts two teams," March 24). We all know there are other, fairer solutions that would allow the school to be in compliance with Title IX, but they require more effort on her part. I have coached baseball for 27 years at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science, Lafayette College and Penn State University, and I cherished my relationship with Towson University coaches Billy Hunter and Mike Gottlieb.

" Last August, Roswell Friend — Dulaney High graduate, college athlete, selfless friend, soon-to-be Temple alum — went for a run over a Philadelphia bridge and never came back.
