He attended San Francisco's mini-camp and will return for another camp on May 16 in hopes of earning an invitation to preseason camp.

With his best offensive player, best defensive player, and several other key contributors lost to injury, Rowan coach Jay Accorsi didn't know how far the Profs could go. But, Rowan's run into the Division III semifinals for the second consecutive year surpassed his expectations.

A few someones would have to go. First, Kevin Connor transferred to Richmond. Then, Chris DiMascio transferred to Fordham and Alex Compton left for Cornell.

When a team shoots 37 percent and wins by 22 points, it's safe to say those numbers add up to good defense. That was the story for the Rowan women's basketball team yesterday, as the Profs took a 72-50 victory over No. 3 seed Colby-Sawyer in the second round of the NCAA Division III Atlantic regionals. The second-seeded Profs (22-5) will play Friday at a site to be determined against Williams, the Northeast region winner.

Growing up in Shanghai, Qingjia Edward Wang never thought he would one day write a book about chopsticks. To him, chopsticks were just eating utensils. But when Wang, now a history professor at Rowan University, was teaching his then-5-year-old son, Maxwell, how to use chopsticks, he decided to look for information about them. To his surprise, little was available in English. Wang, whose research focuses primarily on historiography, the study of how history is written, decided the topic was worth pursuing.

By directly spending $650 million each year, Rowan University generates a total economic impact in New Jersey of $1.23 billion, according to a report released Thursday. Rowan commissioned the report, hiring Philadelphia-based Econsult Solutions to analyze the university's role in providing indirect economic support to the state - increased consumer spending by construction workers, for example, who work on campus projects. "Being an economic engine is so important, because we really have come to the realization no institution can survive and thrive, permanently and indefinitely, until the surrounding region - the region in which it is located - the population thrives as well," Ali A. Houshmand, Rowan's president, said at a press briefing.
