A second-half rally from Penn proved too late as Yale celebrated a 58-51 win over the Quakers in women's basketball at the Palestra last night. Penn (1-15 overall, 0-2 Ivy League), led by Kim Adams (16 points) and Sarah Bucar (14), closed a 14-point deficit to four, but Yale (7-10, 2-1), paced by a 16-point effort from Megan Vasquez and 14 points from Yoyo Greenfield, got its first victory at the Palestra in 2 years. Penn will look to rebound tonight when Brown visits the Palestra for a 7 p.m. tipoff.

GEORGE W. BUSH didn't idly sit by when the University of Michigan's policy of racial preferences in admissions was being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court last year. He sent out the U.S. Justice Department to oppose Michigan's "anti-merit" admissions policy. So imagine our surprise last week after he was cornered by a columnist who got him to say he also opposes "legacy" preferences like the one he got as the son of a Yale alumnus when he was accepted at the Ivy League school.

Senior guard Edwin Draughan scored 20 points and added five assists to lead Yale to a 56-43 win over Princeton last night in New Haven, Conn.

Princeton fell to 11-11 and 2-6, the first time the program has started 2-6 in the Ivy, which was established in 1956. Yale freshman forward Caleb Holmes scored 10 points and freshman guard Eric Flato contributed seven. Flato hit back-to-back shots that built Yale's lead back to 12 after being cut to 36-29 with 12 minutes, 24 seconds left.

Penn's trip to Yale's John J. Lee Amphitheater had become an annual nightmare for the Quakers, and it nearly turned into another lurid tale last night. But after winnowing an 18-point deficit to two, Yale failed to get a shot off with under 2 minutes to go, and then missed an open layup after that, opening the door for Penn to break the building's well-known hex and escape with a 70-63 victory. Penn had lost three of its last four games and four of the last six at Yale. The win bucked the norm in more ways than that.

With a two-season, 18-game winning streak, Penn coach Al Bagnoli should have few worries. Bagnoli has worries. Yesterday, following Penn's 14-6 victory over Yale Saturday at Franklin Field, Bagnoli was concerned about his frustrating offense. Leading, 7-0, the Quakers (6-0 overall, 4-0 in the Ivy League) were unable to convert a first-and-goal at Yale's 1-yard line. Later, quarterback Mark DeRosa was intercepted and a 39-yard field goal attempt by Andy Glockner was blocked.

High school dropout Frank Sinatra will go to Yale Law School April 15 as a distinguished lecturer, and - no different from his Atlantic City casino appearances - he's a tough ticket. Yale alumnus and Ol' Blue Eyes pal Sidney Zion, who began a lecture series there three years ago, said the school has been swamped with requests for tickets to the talk. "The place only holds 550, so I can't imagine how we will be able to handle all the students that want to attend," he said. The lecture might be wired via closed-circuit TV to the Yale gym. No outside TV news cameras will be permitted and, although some reporters will be invited, Sinatra won't answer their questions.
