It took a serious knee injury to her friend and roommate, Tina Hutchinson, to help make Dee Dee Duncan the complete player she is today. Duncan's turnabout came after she scored a career-high 24 points last December in the Aztecs' 77-73 loss to Southern Illinois in the Dial tournament championship game in which Hutchinson and center Toni Wallace were injured. "It was up to me," said Duncan, a junior criminal justice major.

When Thorsten Biermann arrived at the Florida Flight Training Center a year ago for a six-week course for an instrument license, he was pleased to be housed with three other German-speaking students in a school-owned apartment within walking distance of the airfield. One of his roommates, a congenial Lebanese, was even willing to cook most of the group's dinners and lend the others his red Mitsubishi--the only transportation the four students had.

When Leslie Lobel was a student at Tufts University in the late 1970s, her dormitory roommates learned a simple code when they wanted to be left alone for a sexual romp: "There was a Dry Erase board and you would write, 'Come back in 20 minutes.' Sometimes you were locked out, and sometimes you were fortunate enough to be the one locking someone else out." Students did not rely on rules or handbooks to understand they needed to figure out how to navigate one simple equation of freshman life: randy students, minus pesky parents, equals sexual freedom.

Despite its rather tiresome and typographically unwieldy title,ABC's "Don't Trust the B - in Apartment 23" is among the least raunchy of this year's super-sized batch of female-centric comedies. It is also one of the funniest, which should make a point about the tantalizing though too often abusive relationship between shock and humor, and also the comedic value of the word "vagina," which will never be as high as the various slang terms for the word "penis. " (It may just be a syllable thing.)

Question: I am a single woman, and none of my single friends has the money to take a vacation. And my married friends want to travel with their spouses. Yet everything I see is geared for two. I don't want to have a stranger as my roommate at a resort, on a cruise or on a singles trip. Do you have any suggestions so I don't have to pay the huge premium to have my own room? A. Siegel Studio City Answer: This is an age-old problem for single and older women who want to travel but don't want to get stuck with a big bill, with a whack-job roommate or with being the odd woman out. People who are paired up aren't always welcoming to solo travelers, said Mary Ann Zimmerman, who runs SWT Tours ( www.poshnosh.com )

Looking to end your week on an upbeat note? Then read no further! Seriously, um, read no further, 'cause we're about to learn how Katie Couric came thisclose to having sexy times with Larry King. Seems Katie and Larry went out on a date in Washington, D.C., years ago, when she was about 30 and he was 112 (OK, he's about 23 years older than she is, but you get the idea). It was during a period in her life, she told Jimmy Kimmel on his show Thursday night, when she was going out with anyone who asked, because "you learn something" every time you're with someone new. They headed out for an Italian dinner, and he ordered heart-healthy because he'd just had bypass surgery.

Friends and family attended an emotional memorial in Santa Ana on Sunday for slain Army veteran and college student Maribel Ramos. Ramos' sister Marta Ortiz Ramos traveled to California to attend the service after the Mexican Consulate in Santa Ana requested that she be allowed to enter the United States, the family's pastor said. Ortiz Ramos did not have a visa or a passport and the consulate stepped in to help. Maribel Ramos, a former U.S. Army sergeant, went missing from her apartment in Orange on May 2. She was last seen in surveillance footage showing her dropping off a rent check at her apartment manager's office. She was reported missing the next day, a Friday, after she failed to show up to commitments including a veterans event where she was scheduled to speak and at a long-standing softball game she played in with her cousin.
