Four points, 11 rebounds, four blocked shots. That was center Mamadou Ndiaye's contribution last week in 33 minutes toward UC Irvine's 46-44 victory over Long Beach State. It might be the most deceiving box score line in college basketball this season.

"He even altered some shots when he wasn't in the game.

Because this depository isn't for books, it's for babies — and not just any infants; these children are the unwanted ones, a burden many parents find too terrible to bear. One is deaf, blind and paralyzed; another has a tiny misshapen head. There's a baby with Down syndrome, another with cerebral palsy, still another who is quadriplegic, with permanent brain damage.
