Two women were officials of a U.S. Basketball League game between Atlanta and Philadelphia, the first time an all-female officiating crew has handled a men's professional basketball game. Sandhi Ortiz DelValle of East Orange, N.J., and Bonita Spence of Edison, N.J., were the groundbreaking pair. They called 59 fouls as the Atlanta Eagles beat the Philadelphia Spirit 118-105.

One of the toughest tasks for a college basketball recruiter is to project the potential of teenage big men. They frequently can look awkward, uncoordinated and inconsistent, but their size makes them tempting targets. Recruiters have been visiting high schools this month, evaluating prospects, but now comes a dead period until early July, making it a critical time for big men to start making progress before coaches next see them on the summer travel circuit.

They buried their dead. They cannot bury their grief. They might never. Monday, the healing began for Oklahoma State University in the wake of the Jan. 27 airplane crash that claimed the lives of 10 people connected with the school's basketball program. Oklahoma State's men's team played its first game since the tragedy, beating Missouri, 69-66, before an emotional, boisterous capacity crowd at Gallagher-Iba Arena. The result didn't matter.

Kentucky has gone through the NCAA tournament at a pace rarely seen. The Wildcats have an average margin of victory of 31 points and were able to start each game with a run opponents from which couldn't recover. "I think we're playing with great confidence," Pitino said. "I think it's more due to the defense than anything else. Your defense has got to key that kind of run." After three seasons at Division II Northern Kentucky, senior walk-on Todd Svoboda is living a dream at Kentucky.

UC Irvine thanked men's basketball Coach Pat Douglass for a job well done Friday, extending his contract by two years. Douglass' contract, originally set to expire in 2002, now extends through 2004, but without a raise from his base salary of about $110,000. Douglass did not seek the extension, Athletic Director Dan Guerrero said. "We just felt we wanted to make a commitment to Pat and the foundation he has laid with his program," Guerrero said.

Cal State Northridge bided its time and finally brushed aside pesky Montana, 79-67, in a Big Sky Conference game before 1,483 Saturday night at the Matadome. In a tight game in which both teams forged significant leads, the Matadors--most prominently forward Andre Larry--were the ones hanging around at the end. Larry's emphatic two-handed dunk in the final seconds provided the exclamation point to a 14-4 Northridge run in the final four minutes that proved decisive.

Cal State Northridge, going back to the well that produced a winner last year, on Thursday signed Derrick Higgins, a 6-foot-3 swingman from Los Angeles City College, to a letter of intent. Higgins is the second L.A. City player to accept a basketball scholarship to Northridge in the past two years. The other, Mike Dorsey, was Northridge's most valuable player in 1994-95. "Derrick Higgins is very comparable to Mike Dorsey in terms of athletic ability," L.A. City Coach Mike Miller said.
