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. - Although Penn has shown signs of progress in Steve Donahue's first season, the amount of work the Quakers still have to do to return to Ivy League title contention was made clear Friday night. Yale, meanwhile, showed once again why it was anointed the preseason favorite to win this year's crown, and reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1962. Led by arguably the conference's best frontcourt tandem in Brandon Sherrod and Justin Sears, the Bulldogs' athleticism and experience proved too much for Penn's young squad in an 81-58 rout at John J. Lee Amphitheater.

Penn's Jackson Donahue had to patiently wait his turn, but the 6-foot, 175-pound freshman is making the most of his recent increased playing time. And he appears to be among the up-and-coming three-point shooters in the Ivy League. Donahue, who is no relation to Penn coach Steve Donahue, is 10th in the Ivy League in three-point field goals, averaging 1.9 per game. He didn't play in two of the first seven games, and while he is averaging 6.8 points in 15.6 minutes, his numbers are drastically different in the last four games, all as a starter.

Playing under the bright lights, in front of a national television audience and on a rare Friday night, Penn played its most complete game of the season from start to finish to earn a 34-20 victory over Ivy League rival Yale on Friday night at Franklin Field. The Quakers (3-3, 2-1 Ivy), playing in front of 5,849, got another good game from quarterback Alek Torgersen. After passing for 296 yards and three touchdowns in last week's rout of Columbia, Torgersen was 25 for 35 for 350 yards and four touchdowns.

WITH THREE minutes left in the first quarter and his team trailing, 10-0, Penn senior linebacker Tyler Drake stood in front of his teammates on the sideline Friday at Franklin Field, pleading with them to pick up their energy. On Penn's next two defensive possessions, Drake and the Quakers forced two turnovers, sparking a 20-point second quarter, which helped Penn defeat Yale 34-20, and even its record at 3-3. The Quakers improved to 2-1 in the Ivy League. On the night, the senior linebacker finished with six tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.

The men of Yale University's Class of 1964 graduated from a citadel of tradition into an America that was about to change radically - and would revolutionize many of their lives as well. "As straight as we were, and as socialized as we were in the experiences and expectations of post-World War II . . . we couldn't take a straight line from there as a group," says Howard Gillette Jr., author of the new book Class Divide: Yale '64 and the Conflicted Legacy of the Sixties (Cornell University Press)

Who says teenagers don't pay attention to the news? One recent day, students in Nicole McNally's high school world history class were acing their weekly current events quiz. Sports? Entertainment? Popular culture? No problem for this brainstorming team. "Great job, guys," McNally said. And it was, but for more reasons than getting kids to check out the news of the week. These students all attend the Y.A.L.E. School in Cherry Hill for children with social learning disabilities in grades one through 12. For the last several weeks, classes in both the middle and high schools have been competing in a weekly current events challenge.

An English professor who has taught at Haverford College for more than 30 years, and most recently served as provost, was named to a two-year term as president, the college announced Friday. Kimberly Benston, 62, will replace Daniel H. Weiss, who will leave the college this summer to serve as president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Benston, a Yale graduate and native of New York, starts July 1. Asked about the two-year appointment, Benston said it made sense for Haverford, a highly selective college on the Main Line, and for him. "With our strategic plan in the process of being implemented and fund-raising campaign set to conclude in 2017, two years seemed like the right term length," he said.

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.
