A ROBERT MORRIS internal investigation into former basketball coach Mike Rice found no evidence of the "coaches against player" brawls alleged by an ex-Rutgers employee, though one former Colonial contacted by the school claims Rice used anti-gay slurs on several occasions and engaged in a shoving match with a player during halftime of a game. Rice coached at the suburban Pittsburgh school from 2007-10 before taking the job at Rutgers, who fired Rice last week after video of the coach physically and emotionally abusing players became public.

Robert Morris, 78, a cryptographer who helped develop the Unix computer operating system, which controls an increasing number of the world's computers, died Sunday in Lebanon, N.H. The cause was complications of dementia, his wife, Anne Farlow Morris, said. Known as an original thinker in computer science, Mr. Morris also played an important clandestine role in planning what was probably the nation's first cyberwar: the electronic attacks on Saddam Hussein's Iraqi government in the months leading up to the Persian Gulf War of 1991.

With his team having gone through the NCAA tournament experience last season, Robert Morris coach Mike Rice figures it's time to present a challenge to his 15th-seeded Colonials: make history in today's game against Villanova in the first round of the NCAA South Regional. Since the NCAA tournament expanded to 16 seeds per region in 1985, the team seeded 15th has defeated the No. 2 seed just four times against 96 losses. The feat hasn't been done since 2001, when Hampton defeated Iowa State, 58-57.

David Appolon entered the summer hoping to draw attention from major college basketball programs. As things stood recently, however, his pursuers included Robert Morris, Mount St. Mary's, Long Island and Austin Peay. "What it came down to," he said, "was going into the season and trying to see what else could happen or making my decision now and going with a school that I knew really wanted me. "I competed hard for my summer team, Team Philly, but things didn't go too great for us. Since I was the point guard and the ball was in my hands, [the lack of success]

A "design flaw" that caused the doors of a Toyota SUV to unlock when the vehicle was placed in park led to the carjacking, kidnapping, and sexual assault of a woman, and to the subsequent hit-and-run murders of a mother and her three children, a lawsuit alleges. The civil suit, filed against the automaker Wednesday in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, claims that on July 25, 2014, the woman - a real estate agent whose name is being withheld because she was the victim of a sexual assault - placed her 2005 Toyota 4Runner in park at Cumberland and Cambria Streets while working in North Philadelphia.

PITTSBURGH - This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Not again. And there isn't any good way to explain it. Villanova already had set a program record by winning 33 games. Including its last 16, another program best. But the top-seeded Wildcats were beaten Saturday night at the Consol Energy Center by a North Carolina State team that had lost 13 times, 71-68, in the round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament's East Regional. A Wolfpack team that had won at Louisville and North Carolina and beaten Duke at home.

Immersed in one of the toughest years of his life, Velton Jones felt compelled to make a prediction. Sitting in the office of then-Robert Morris assistant Andy Toole in 2008, Jones browsed through the records section of the basketball team's media guide. He had yet to play a minute of college basketball but saw himself in those pages as part of an improving program. "Coach Toole, I guarantee you I will be in this book," Jones said. That wasn't ego talking, either. But it was a sign of what was to come.

Robert Morris (24-10) led almost the entire way, never blinking in a rare visit from one of college basketball's Goliaths.
