Rick Majerus, the college basketball coach who led Utah to the 1998 NCAA final and had only one losing season in 25 years with four schools, died Saturday. He was 64. Utah industrialist Jon Huntsman Sr., the coach's longtime friend, confirmed in a statement released through the Salt Lake Tribune that Majerus died of heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital. Majerus said Nov. 19 that he wouldn't return to Saint Louis University because of the heart condition. He ended the school's 12-year NCAA tournament drought last season with a 26-win team that won its opening game and took top regional seed Michigan State to the wire.

Re "The collar and the gun," three-part series, Feb. 8-10 Thank you for the series on Father John Kaiser. His influence stretches not only from his hometown in Minnesota to the Kenyan Mara, but also to St. Louis. Kaiser received a degree from Saint Louis University in 1960 and returned to the city for his ordination in 1964. In 1973, during a break from his mission work, Kaiser was staying in south St. Louis and, typical of his reputation for hard work, asked the bishop for something to do. He was directed to All Souls parish in nearby Overland, where he briefly did the parish work of a diocesan priest: riding a borrowed bicycle along neighborhood streets, playing lawn darts with young families, joining the local Knights of Columbus and, of course, administering the sacraments.

George Michael, a high-rated and hyper-animated Washington, D.C., sportscaster whose extensive use of game highlights from across the country on his nationally syndicated show has now become the norm in the industry, died Thursday at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington. He was 70 and had chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Michael was a popular rock 'n' roll DJ in Philadelphia and New York before making a successful transition to television, where his boisterous style and unremitting hustle made him one of the dominant personalities in Washington for years.

Lorenzo Romar, who turned a 10-18, last-place Pepperdine basketball program into a 19-13, second-place one in three seasons, will be named the coach at Saint Louis University at a news conference this morning. Romar, who came to Pepperdine after four years and a national championship in 1995 as Jim Harrick's assistant at UCLA, was 42-44 in his three seasons with the Waves and this year took them to their first postseason appearance in five years.

The president of the University of Minnesota wants two months to investigate accusations of academic fraud in the basketball program. Mark Yudof, speaking to the Senate Higher Education Budget Division in St. Paul, Minn., called the matter "very serious business," but said it was too early to elaborate on the investigation. "The most critical thing is to do the right thing," Yudof said.

Kevin O'Neill, Marquette's basketball coach, steers his four-wheel drive through the slush of the parking lot, finds a space and then points Charlie Spoonhour toward the front door of the restaurant. "I swear, Charlie, we'll be in and out in 15 minutes," O'Neill says to the St. Louis coach. Spoonhour nods. He has a sore throat and the Billikens' game against Marquette starts in less than three hours.
