Tommy Gaines scored 33 points last night as Millersville beat Bloomsburg, 87-71, for the championship of the NCAA Division II East Regional. The Marauders (26-6) advanced to the quarterfinals in Springfield, Mass., where they will play the West Regional champion on Thursday. The West title will be decided tonight. Bloomsburg shot poorly from the outset, making only two of its first 18 field-goal attempts and falling behind by 22-9.

The baseball season was beginning to slip away from Millersville, one game at a time. A loss here, another there, some because of poor pitching, others because of shaky defense, had sent the Marauders into a maddening midseason funk. So when Millersville dropped a doubleheader April 4 at home to Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference rival Shippensburg, junior captain Steve Tallon, a Cardinal O'Hara graduate, decided it was time to do something. He called for a team meeting.

It was certainly one of the longer 12-3 games in NCAA history. Three hours, 21 minutes after West Chester and Millersville began last night, they slipped off the field at West Chester's Farrell Stadium under the cover of one final penalty flag. West Chester won, 12-3, and became the favorite in the PSAC East. Its offense didn't score a touchdown, but coach Rick Daniels was pleased - more than pleased - because his Golden Rams had shut down what had been the top offense in the division.

Eight hours before he would play one of the most important games of his basketball career, Amos Clay buried his mother. Darlene Clay died at the age of 42 on Feb. 22. Her funeral was Saturday morning at Merion Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd. "She had been sick for a very long time," said Clay, a junior forward for a Millersville team that is ranked No. 2 nationally in Division II. "She had had her ups and downs. " But, though Clay had a rough week, between his mother's death and Saturday's Pennsylvania Conference championship, there was no question that he would play against California (Pa.)

Coaches in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference's Eastern Division know that this season's champion will be the team that gets the breaks. But John Kochan's Millersville Marauders already have gotten some breaks, and because of them, their chances of repeating as regular-season champs are in jeopardy. The Marauders' breaks, you see, have been bad ones, occurring as they did in the bones of perhaps their two best players. Senior Mike Monroe, a 6-foot-2 guard from West Philadelphia High, suffered a stress fracture in his right leg this past summer, and senior Eric Yankowy, a 6-7 forward, continues to be bothered by a stress fracture in his lower back.

Millersville University professor Changfu Chang figured his first documentary on Chinese adoption would be his last. After all, how much could he say on the topic? He thought the same about his second film. And his third, fourth, and fifth. Now, with eight documentaries in print and a ninth in production, Chang has accepted that the careful examination of this one complicated corner of humanity is in fact his life's work and calling. The story of the adopted children, mostly girls, about 80,000 strong, has moved in directions no one could have anticipated since he produced Love Without Boundaries in 2003.

The state university system will suspend, discontinue or merge dozens of degree programs that are under-enrolled across its 14 campuses, officials said Wednesday. The bachelor's and master's programs being culled by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education cut across disciplines, from foreign languages to physics. Fifteen are being discontinued and at least 55 others placed in moratorium, meaning no new students will be accepted. Students currently enrolled in those majors - including incoming freshmen - will be able to finish their degrees, system officials said.
