1990 grad named coach at Louisville
Dan McDonnell's (Class of 1990) baseball resume just got a little better. McDonnell stood at the podium answering questions in his grey suit and Louisville Cardinal red tie draped over his white button down shirt. He was all smiles behind the red backdrop covered in Big East and Louisville emblems, as he was introduced as the 18th head baseball coach in the history of the University of Louisville.

Marshall leaves Cougars at altar
Applause and ovations in Charleston gave way to a quiet car ride back to Rock Hill, and that's when the second thoughts began to creep in. Gregg Marshall called Winthrop University president Anthony DiGiorgio, the man who until a few hours earlier had been his boss. And what had been one of the more heartwarming chapters in College of Charleston basketball history took a sudden, shocking turn. Less than one day after the Cougars announced their new coach, the search is on for another one. Marshall, the former Charleston assistant who was introduced to a standing ovation Wednesday and agreed in principle to a six-year contract, made an abrupt about-face Thursday and returned to his old job at Winthrop, which he has led to six NCAA Tournament berths in eight seasons as head coach. ...

Does debt have a color? Of course red symbolizes debt, but in borrowing, does it matter to minority students and their families whom they are borrowing from? A new business announced Wednesday believes it may matter. Robert L. Johnson, the founder of the BET empire and the first black billionaire, has created a loan business that will focus on urban students and on those who attend historically black colleges and other institutions with large minority enrollments. An offshoot of Urban Trust Banks, the loan business will primarily be owned by Johnson, with a minority stake going to Goldman Sachs. ...

The report by the panel appointed last year by Education Secretary Margaret Spellings was highly critical of the nation's institutions of higher education. It said there was a lack of accountability to show that students were learning, that college costs have risen too high, and that "unacceptable numbers of college graduates" were entering the workforce without skills that employers say they need. ...

Smith pondering return to Bulldogs
One of the best nights of Travis Smith's life occurred in a Citadel basketball uniform. Smith was a freshman guard when he sank seven 3-point shots and scored 25 points - all in the second half - to rally the Bulldogs from 21 points behind to a 76-74 victory at Wofford on Jan. 17, 2005. "One of the most exciting experiences I've ever had," Smith said this week. Smith, who left The Citadel after that freshman season, might yet get a chance to relive those former glories in a Citadel uniform. The 6-1 guard, who is from Columbus, Ga., and played last season at Pasadena (Calif.) City College, is likely to return to The Citadel next season. ...
