Louisiana on Wednesday became the second Southern state ordered by a federal judge to overhaul its university system, where whites and blacks still largely attend separate colleges. "Simply put, the dubious ideal of 'separate but equal,' whether endorsed by whites or blacks, is an anachronism that our society no longer tolerates," U.S. District Judge Charles Schwartz said in his ruling.

Still quicker, still better. Make that much better. You would assume that, offered a rematch with Louisiana Tech, the team that knocked them out of the NCAA tournament last season, the UCLA women's basketball team would come out fully energized, all weapons firing, in Sunday's second game of the Honda Elite 4 Holiday Classic at Walt Disney World Resort.

A 7-pound, 4-month-old Bengal tiger cub was paraded around Pete Maravich Assembly Center at Louisiana State University Wednesday night at the basketball game between Alabama and Louisiana State. The baby cat was a stand-in for LSU's famous mascot, Mike IV, a 475-pound Bengal tiger. LSU fans used to go berserk when Mike IV was pulled around the gym or football field, a microphone in his wheeled cage amplifying his mighty roar. But Mike IV is over the hill.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Nine years after their Long Beach State team fell just short of the College World Series, Jason Vargas and Jered Weaver were together again, side by side, throwing their first spring-training bullpen sessions as Angels teammates Tuesday. "It's strange, it's cool," said Vargas, the 30-year-old left-hander acquired from Seattle for Kendrys Morales in December. "It's a little of both. " Long Beach State Coach Troy Buckley, the 49ers' pitching coach when Vargas and Weaver were college teammates in 2004, had another word for it. "It's unbelievable," Buckley said.

On a day of scintillating shots and shocking collapses, Carl Paulson played a steady hand Saturday in the Players Championship and positioned himself for the biggest surprise of all. Untested and relatively unknown, Paulson, 31, posted a three-under-par 69 for the third day in a row at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., to build a one-stroke lead over Craig Perks going into the final round of one of toughest and most exciting tests in golf.

In December, six black boys jumped a white boy at the high school here and beat him while he lay unconscious. The victim was taken to the hospital, but he was not gravely hurt. He attended a class ring ceremony later that evening. The black boys were charged with attempted murder, which threatened to put them in prison for most of their lives. The district attorney alleged they'd used a deadly weapon: their sneakers.
