NEW YORK - Aaron Bright came off the bench to spark Stanford to an NIT title. The sophomore point guard had 15 points and six assists in Thursday's 75-51 rout of Minnesota to earn most outstanding player honors, energizing the Cardinal just as the coaches had hoped when they took him out of the starting lineup in mid-February. "I give him all the credit, because it takes a player buying into something like that before it works, and he bought into his role," coach Johnny Dawkins said.

The decision in the criminal-forfeiture case followed Stanford's conviction Tuesday on 13 of 14 fraud-related counts for bilking investors out of more than $7 billion through the sale of certificates of deposit from his bank on the Caribbean island nation of Antigua.

BRITTNEY GRINER and Baylor's path to a second straight national championship will have a familiar feel. Then again, so will the whole Women's NCAA Tournament. For the first time ever, the top four seeds are the same for consecutive seasons. Baylor, Connecticut, Notre Dame and Stanford all earned No. 1 spots when the field was announced Monday night. Unlike the men's side, where it was a topsy-turvy season with major upsets seemingly every week, women's basketball hasn't seen the same parity.

Joel Legatt, 33, loves his job teaching math at Northeast High School. But he says the day-to-day life of a classroom instructor is like being an emergency-room doctor performing triage - minus the life-and-death situations: So much to do, and no time to sit back and think. That's one of the reasons Legatt and three Northeast colleagues are excited to have been selected for a coveted fellowship program at Stanford University designed to keep talented young high school educators from leaving the field.

Not surprisingly, neither sporting director Earnie Stewart nor coach Jim Curtin was willing to tip his hand when discussing the Union's plans for the Major League Soccer SuperDraft on Thursday. This is the first draft for Stewart and a critical one for a team coming off a 10-17-7 season. The Union will have two of the top six picks. They will select third (their own pick) and sixth, a pick acquired in a trade with Houston. If he is available, it would be a surprise if the Union didn't select left back Brandon Vincent of NCAA champion Stanford at No. 3. Vincent is not attending the MLS combine in Florida for a good reason.

IN 1971, Dr. Philip Zimbardo and his research team split 24 male Stanford students into groups: guards and prisoners. In the halls of the university, he simulated a prison atmosphere, then observed how each group reacted. The study lasted only six days of the intended two weeks, because the guards quickly took on authoritarian qualities and subjected their prisoners to psychological abuse. That experiment has been starkly re-created for the screen by up-and-coming director Kyle Patrick Alvarez and writer Tim Talbott, whose script kicked around for 12 years before it finally was made.
