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. Draughan was 8 for 12 from the field for the Bulldogs, who improved to 8-12, 4-3 in the Ivy League. 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.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Jack Montague hit two late three-pointers and finished with 11 points to cap Yale's come-from-behind, 55-50 victory over Penn on Saturday night. For the Quakers it was their seventh straight Ivy League loss, the worst streak in program history. Yale (21-8, 10-2 Ivy) kept pace with Harvard (20-6, 10-2), which beat Columbia on Saturday, for the top spot in the league standings. Yale travels to Harvard on Friday night. Penn (7-18, 2-9) led the entire way until Montague made a three and Javier Duren a pair of free throws to give Yale a 48-47 lead with 2 minutes, 19 seconds to play.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - A shorthanded Penn men's basketball team was no match for Harvard last night, as the Crimson cruised to a 69-46 victory at Lavietes Pavilion. The Quakers were forced to play without junior guard Tony Hicks, their leading scorer, who was suspended by coach Jerome Allen yesterday for both games this weekend after receiving a technical foul in Saturday's 71-55 loss to Brown when he apparently said something to an official. Hicks, who leads the team in scoring at 13 points a game, sat out the Brown game's final 6 minutes, 22 seconds after shooting only 1-for-12 from the field.

The excuse after consecutive losses in the second games of their Ivy League back-to-backs the previous two weeks was exhaustion. On Friday against Yale, in the first of two games this weekend, Penn again looked exhausted. Yale (17-7, 6-1 Ivy League), tied with Harvard atop the Ivy, pummeled the Quakers at the Palestra, 75-48, bridging the first and second halves with a 41-13 run that turned a 14-12 first-half advantage into an insurmountable 55-25 lead with more than 14 minutes to play.

THE RECORD obviously does not show it, but there are a few hints that the future at Penn might be brighter than the present or recent past. Four Quakers have been named Ivy League rookie of the week, the first time that has happened in the 30-year history of the award. The top two scorers are juniors, and one of them, Tony Hicks, is 17 points from 1,000. The recruiting class, by all accounts, is excellent. Still, after games like Friday night's at the Palestra, it is hard to get beyond Yale 75, Penn 48. It was 28-20 late in the first half, 57-26 midway through the second.

Despite the quarterback's good size (6-foot-2, 230 pounds), Penn coach Al Bagnoli winces from the sidelines almost every time freshman Alek Torgersen takes off running. "Alek runs straight ahead and doesn't have the elusiveness of a Billy Ragone," said Bagnoli, mentioning last year's quarterback. "He's a good runner but he's got to learn how to be a smart runner. He's taking a lot of hits head on. We've got to impress upon him when you have the chance to get out of bounds, get out of bounds.

Mario Maurin, 85, the Eunice Morgan Schenck 1907 Professor Emeritus of French at Bryn Mawr College for two decades, died Saturday, Sept. 20, of cancer at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Maurin, of Rosemont, received his bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees, all by the age of 22, "a noteworthy accomplishment" for so young a man, said Bryn Mawr College president Kim Cassidy. He joined the staff at Bryn Mawr College in 1953 as an assistant professor in the French department.
