La'Kia Stewart, a forward on Central High's Public League girls' basketball championship team this season, said she found an up-tempo pace to match her game in Kent State. She signed last week to play at the Ohio school. The 5-foot-9 senior averaged 16.4 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for the Lancers this season. She finished her high school career with 1,255 points - the third-most ever, boys or girls, at Central. Stewart said she also considered Coppin State and La Salle.

While much of the American journalistic world was earnestly bending over backward, pretending that Richard M. Nixon was something other than an amoral crook, an anniversary came. On Wednesday, it was 24 years since Nixon, aided and abetted by Gov. James Rhodes, the Butcher of Kent State, saw the results of his insane Vietnam policy result in casualties on the grass lawns of Kent, Ohio. On Wednesday, Rhodes and Spiro Agnew, the only convicted felon ever to serve as vice president of the United States, were still alive.

Two teams with an eye on a bowl will provide Temple's regular-season finale Friday at noon against Kent State with a playoff atmosphere at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple (7-4) is bowl eligible, while Kent State (5-6) still needs a sixth win to become bowl eligible. While the winner isn't guaranteed a bowl berth, the loser is likely to stay home. That is definitely the situation in Kent State's case, which adds even more to the homecoming of Golden Flashes first-year head coach Darrell Hazell, a graduate of Cinnaminson High.

Almost two weeks after suffering a tough defeat at home to Temple in the Atlantic Ten Conference tournament title game, the St. Joseph's women's basketball team returned to Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse last night and used the alternative method of keeping the season alive. Coach Cindy Griffin's team gained solid control over Kent State early in the second half and went on to beat the Golden Flashes, 61-51, in a Women's National Invitation Tournament first-round game. Senior Erin Brady led the Hawks (21-10)

OMAHA, Neb. - Kent State scored four unearned runs and another on a wild pitch, then held off Florida's comeback bid in the ninth to eliminate the top-seeded Gators from the College World Series with a 5-4 victory on Monday. The Gators loaded the bases with one out in the ninth against shaky relievers Michael Clark and Josh Pierce. But Pierce fought back from a 3-0 count to strike out Casey Turgeon when Turgeon couldn't check his swing and got called out on an appeal to the third-base umpire.

Fran Oldynski answered his telephone that early May day back in 1970 and heard the voice of his brother. He also heard another sound - the roar of helicopter blades. Something was not right. "My brother was a graduate student at Kent State," Oldynski said this week. "He was studying history - and that week he began to realize he was watching history in the making. " Oldynski, a member of the Abington Monthly Meeting, is one of the driving forces behind a week of programs titled "Kent State Remembered.

TEMPLE'S FIVE seniors from last season's team are playing professionally in China, Japan, Germany, Luxembourg and Ukraine. This team's only senior is Dalton Pepper. The good news is that the young Owls were good enough to earn big leads against Penn on Saturday at the Palestra and Kent State last night at the Liacouras Center. The unsurprising news is they could not hold the lead either time. It worked out in the end against the Quakers, but did not work down the stretch against the Golden Flashes.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The rain poured down and the pristine green grass of Beaver Stadium became slippery, but that didn't stop Penn State's relentless three-headed running-back crew. With Christian Hackenberg struggling for the first time as a college quarterback, the Nittany Lions relied on Zach Zwinak, Akeel Lynch, and Bill Belton for 278 of their 287 rushing yards and all four touchdowns in a 34-0 victory over Kent State. The Lions defense, burned for 507 total yards in a loss the previous week to Central Florida, righted itself by holding the Golden Flashes (1-3)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State's young cornerbacks impressed in their first two games as new starters before coming back to earth last week with a clunk against Central Florida. Sophomores Jordan Lucas and Trevor Williams appeared to be a step slow or leaning the wrong way the majority of the time whenever quarterback Blake Bortles threw the football in their direction to one of several talented receivers. The proof showed on the scoreboard: UCF 34, Penn State 31. But it's a new week for the Lions on Saturday at Beaver Stadium with Kent State (1-2)

COLUMNIST Will Bunch is constantly trying to tie (usually violent) historical events to the modern-day political debate. That is fine, but Bunch always uses these events, such as the tragedy at Kent State, to attack those with whom he disagrees politically. Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell wrote a memorandum that convinced corporate America that the free-enterprise system was being negatively portrayed on America's college campuses. That is all Kent State and the Powell memo have in common; they both involve higher education, to a degree.
