The success that Radford's Artsiom Parakhouski and other junior college imports like him have had in athletics and in the classroom displays the high value of the juco system when the athletes, coaches and administrators do things the right way.

The Nets may be the worst team in the NBA (Unlovable Losers, March 1), but that doesn't mean they aren't worth watching. They have one of the top 10 point guards in the league, and Devin Harris, Courtney Lee, Yi Jianlian and Brook Lopez are exciting to watch. I will be very happy when their young players finally reach their potential.

Great article on the IOC's shameful exclusion of women's ski jumping from the Olympics (POINT AFTER, March 1), and kudos to Lindsey Van for fighting so long and so hard for ski jumpers who will follow in her tracks. And by the way, before the Olympics started in Vancouver, who was the record holder for the normal hill at Whistler? Lindsey Van. Not the women's record holder, the record holder—period.
