There seems to be some confusion about the history and nature of sex discrimination at the UC Irvine College of Medicine. Young women are not under-recruited as students at the College of Medicine. In fact, because of the leadership of Stanley van den Noort, former dean of the medical school, women and men have been admitted as medical students on an equal basis and in roughly equal numbers since the early 1970s. That battle was fought--and won--20 years ago. But women have been--and continue to be--victims of persistent discrimination in faculty hiring and promotions at UCI, and specifically at the College of Medicine.

It was senior night, after all, and there stood Coley Kyman, suffering alone. Last-place UC Irvine was hammering away at fourth-ranked Cal State Northridge and there was little Kyman, surrounded by a group of reserves, could do about it. Then the reinforcements arrived. First, Axel Hager, a senior outside hitter, checked in. Then senior Ken Lynch returned to the lineup. And, suddenly, Irvine started to look like Irvine again.

UC Irvine kept probing Houston on Monday, pushing and running and trying to see if another of this city's teams would cough up a game. The Oilers blew a 32-point lead to Buffalo on Sunday afternoon. Sunday night, the Rockets had a seven-point lead over Portland with one minute left--then lost in overtime. The Cougars beat Irvine, 86-78, before 2,770 at Hofheinz Pavilion, but not before seeing leads of 15 points during the first half and 12 during the second whittled down.
