Fielding a young lineup, UCLA relied on its veteran pitchers all season, and it was more of the same Thursday in the first round of the NCAA Division I softball tournament at Oklahoma City. Lisa Fernandez pitched a one-hitter for her 19th shutout of the season as the Bruins defeated Massachusetts, 4-0. Bruin pitchers have 36 shutouts in 52 games. Fernandez (26-0), who also drove in a run and scored one, struck out 10 and walked none. She has pitched 46th consecutive shutout innings.

Maeve Binchy, who was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed authors in contemporary Irish literature, selling more than 40 million books, died Monday at a Dublin hospital after a brief illness, according to Irish media. She was 72. "We have lost a national treasure," said Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny. A former teacher and journalist, Binchy didn't publish her first novel, "Light a Penny Candle," until 1982, the year she turned 42. Like many of her books, it was set in an Irish village and follows two girls growing up in the aftermath of World War II. When it became a commercial success, the author compared it to winning the lottery.

Crean was a roughhewn candidate for Congress who was so unpalatable that after winning the Republican nomination in 1982, GOP activists successfully backed a write-in candidate. Today, Crean is under fire again, this time from parents and faculty revolting against his 10-year chairmanship of the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California's only private military boarding school.

Top-seeded Sergi Bruguera needed three sets to defeat Russian Andrei Cherkasov, 6-1, 2-6, 6-1, on Wednesday in the second round of the $1.72-million ATP Championship. The Spanish clay specialist, a three-time winner on that surface this year, inherited the top seeding when No. 1-ranked Pete Sampras withdrew late last week because of tendinitis in his ankle.

Vector Graphic, a pioneer in the personal computer business, said Monday that it will liquidate under Chapter 7 of the U. S. Bankruptcy Code. The decision comes a year after the Westlake Village-based company stopped making computer equipment and nearly 14 months after it filed a petition under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code, which permits a company to reorganize while keeping creditors at bay. Vector Graphic said no money is available to be distributed to unsecured creditors or stockholders.
