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.

Rowan scored touchdowns in each quarter en route to a 27-12 victory over William Paterson last night. A lucky bounce late in the first quarter got the Profs (7-2, 3-1 NJAC) started toward the victory over the Pioneers (1-9, 0-5). With eight seconds left in the quarter, Brandon Medine picked up a fumbled snap on a William Paterson punt and ran into the end zone from 3 yards out. Before halftime, Rowan had raised its lead to 14-0. Pat Thompson, who led the Profs in rushing with 70 yards on 14 carries, ran in from 17 yards out with 4 minutes, 15 seconds left in the half, and Darren Shaddow added his second extra point.

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.

The top-seeded Rowan women's basketball team survived a season-high 29 turnovers and reversed a history of first-round failures with an 81-68 win over eighth-seeded Elizabethtown in an NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic Regional opener last night in Glassboro.

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. The Profs advanced by harassing Colby-Sawyer into 31 percent shooting and 21 turnovers.

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.

Pastor Barbara Ross shook her head: "I just don't get it," she said. Ross, who represented Wesley Chapel A.M.E Church in Edwardsville, Ill., was among hundreds marching in Philadelphia Thursday to protest recent police shootings of black men across the country.

Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, said he told the officer he had a licensed gun in the car, and was reaching for his license as requested when the officer shot him.  Ross shook her fist.

"Marvin was responsible for developing a very aggressive and successful program at Rowan," said Phil Tumminia, former executive vice president for advancement at Rowan, to whom Mr. Sills reported.

Some of Joe Cassidy's best memories as a college basketball coach are captured from the same angle: Off to the side and slightly in the background. There's Rowan coach John Giannini and the Profs celebrating the program's only national title in 1996. Cassidy is there, an assistant coach reveling in the moment. There's Giannini and the Profs making the NCAA Division III Final Four in 1993 and 1995, taking the program to unprecedented heights in advance of that breakthrough in 1996.

Anabel Aponte was known to friends and family by her nickname, "Beba. " She cleaned academic buildings on the night shift at Rowan University, where she had worked since 2008. On Thursday, she started work around 10:30 p.m. and finished about 5 a.m. the next day, a typical shift on her Monday-to-Friday schedule. A cold rain fell as she left work. Around 5:40 a.m., as Aponte drove her Kia Opirus onto southbound Route 55 from Route 42 in Deptford, it veered off the road and crashed into several trees.

Rowan University police are looking for a student they say kept a gun in a campus dorm room and had drugs to sell. Rowan sent a campuswide alert Thursday asking anyone who sees Robert Hardiman Jr., 25, of Piscataway, to stay away from him and immediately call police. Another student living with Hardiman was detained Friday on gun charges. Responding to a fire alarm in the Triad Apartments residence hall last Friday, police said they smelled marijuana in the apartment and saw loose 9mm rounds, the university said Thursday.

Rowan University trustees agreed Tuesday to sell 100 acres for $11.5 million to Inspira Health Network, which plans to build a hospital in the area west of the university's main campus in Glassboro. The deal's cost is $2 million higher than when it was first proposed to Rowan trustees two months ago, because of a property appraisal; $1 million will be set aside as an endowment to help cover the costs of setting up internships, Rowan said. The sale would excise a chunk of Rowan's largely undeveloped "West Campus," with Inspira planning a 350,000-square-foot facility at Routes 322 and 55 in Harrison Township.

In space, no one can hear you scream when your battery dies. Out there, options are pretty limited. "In space, there are very limited power sources. You either have to carry your batteries with you - which is in most cases impractical - or by and large in space, you would rely on light, on sun," said Robi Polikar, head of the electrical and computer engineering department at Rowan University. And there are all those other issues to think about when it comes to electronics: the physical size of the equipment (the larger and heavier, the harder to get into space)

Rowan University trustees voted Tuesday to move forward with selling 100 acres of land to Inspira Health Network for a new hospital near Rowan's main campus in Glassboro. Trustees spent more than three hours Tuesday in closed and public discussions debating the move and hearing presentations from Inspira officials. "We didn't think it was going to be as much of a concern as it was to some of the board members," John A. DiAngelo, the Inspira president and CEO, said after the meeting.
