Once an immature boy whose neck was nearly caught within the noose of K.C. Keeler's hands, Scott Lipford has emerged as a responsible young family man with a chance to play in the NFL. Lipford, an Ocean City High graduate and record-setting receiver for Rowan, signed a free-agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers two days after last month's draft. 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. "For the devastating injuries we had, and for the players to still believe in what they're doing, that makes it fun coaching college football," Accorsi said. "This group did a great job, made a great run, did some great things.

The exodus continues on Hawk Hill. When the last basketball season ended for St. Joseph's and all the recruits had been signed, the program had a problem. If the status quo was maintained, St. Joe's would have had 16 players on scholarship for the following season. Only 13 scholarships are allowed. Something would have to give. 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.

Joy Reighn realizes that success has its price, but the Rowan athletic director doesn't mind paying it. Reighn once again is searching for a new basketball coach after Candace Crabtree became the new women's coach at Drexel University on Wednesday. Crabtree was Rowan's all-time winningest women's basketball coach with a 171-25 record (.872 winning percentage). She led the Profs to six NCAA berths in seven seasons, including one Final Four, three Elite Eights, and four Sweet 16s. "She routinely guided Rowan into elite company, and Drexel can only benefit from both her knowledge and enthusiasm of the game," Drexel athletic director Eric Zillmer said.

Gaby Rochino knew she wasn't the only Rowan University student struggling to get through a particularly difficult engineering class - "I'd study nine hours a night and I'd still get a C on a quiz" - but she still felt alone. "Imagine sitting in a classroom, and nobody in your classroom looks like you. Rowan itself is very un-diverse, so mostly everyone around me was a Caucasian male," said Rochino, 21, of Cherry Hill. "It's just devastating looking around the room, thinking, 'Maybe I'm not cut out for this, maybe I'm not made for this, maybe girls can't do engineering,' " she said.

The legacy of Henry M. Rowan - entrepreneur, industrialist, philanthropist - lives on, speaker after speaker said Thursday at the university that bears his name. Not only because Glassboro State College is now Rowan University, or because his $100 million gift transformed the college and also created the engineering school that is now called the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering. Rowan's legacy, after his Dec. 9 death, lives on, speakers said at a "celebration of life" ceremony, in the students affected by his donation, by the academic programs he supported, and by the entrepreneurial spirit he embodied.

As state funding continues to dwindle, the president of Rowan University on Wednesday pointed to "public-private partnerships" as a way to lessen the financial load on colleges. "We need to pass the buck on to other people, use other people's money to build our campus," Ali A. Houshmand said to laughter at a hearing of the New Jersey College Affordability Study Commission. His remarks echoed testimony he gave two years ago before a similar commission visiting his school's Glassboro campus.

LIKE A LOT of fair-skinned people, Joe Cassidy knew all about the dangers of getting too much sun. And like a lot of folks as they get older, at some point he figured it might be a good idea to finally see a specialist. Just in case. "My wife (Betty Ann) has always been on me about taking care of myself," said Cassidy, who's been the Rowan basketball coach for the last two decades and a baseball/softball umpire for twice that long. "I had a little blotch on (the left side of) my face that was discolored, about the size of a quarter.

The community colleges in Burlington and Gloucester Counties, having formed partnerships with nearby Rowan University, took a step Monday to further intertwine their schools. The presidents of Rowan College at Burlington County and Rowan College at Gloucester County said their schools would work with Rowan University to create bachelor's degree programs in which the first three years are offered by the community colleges. The program could begin as early as this fall. The cost of attending community college for three years is about equal to one year at Rowan University, the presidents said.

On the last day of a three-week Christian medical mission to northern Haiti decades ago, Dr. Rowan C. Pearce Jr. faced a problem. "As the clinics were closing, a father arrived with a 9-year-old boy, who had a beetle claw in his eye," Dr. Pearce's daughter, Katherine Gledhill recalled. "It was obvious that this foreign body needed to be removed," she said, though there was no eye surgeon at the clinic. Dr. Pearce, a South Jersey ear, nose, and throat physician, found that "the one remaining sterile instrument in his kit was a myringotomy knife, normally used to open ear drums.

Kids were always part of the picture. Rowan and Tyler are the oldest in their families; both worked their way through college by babysitting and being nannies. And when they met, at a party in New York that neither really wanted to attend, a mutual enthusiasm for children was part of the spark. "Our eyes met, and I thought: I'm going to hang out with that person," Rowan recalls. Their chat lasted five hours - long enough for the pair to leave the party and head back to Tyler's place in Brooklyn, with Rowan's bike on board; later that night, Rowan cycled all the way back home to Harlem.
