Rollie Massimino resigned after a disappointing seven-season stint as men's coach at Cleveland State, where he was unable to duplicate the success he had while leading Villanova to an improbable 1985 NCAA title. Cleveland State bought out the final two years of the 68-year-old Massimino's contract, Athletic Director Lee Reed said Saturday. Massimino was paid $147,000 for the 2002-03 season.

Cleveland State basketball Coach Kevin Mackey was fired Thursday, six days after his arrest for alleged drunk driving. His lawyer, David Roth, said Mackey will soon begin treatment for drug and alcohol abuse at a center in Houston run by NBA player John Lucas. Mackey was arrested as he and a woman drove away from a reputed drug house. A urinalysis revealed that Mackey was drunk and had cocaine in his system, police said.

The legend of David Robinson got one game larger Friday night. The Lilliputians from Cleveland State tried to pull him down, even venturing the occasional roll block, only to see him rise again, poke his head through the clouds and punch their tickets for them. Back to Lilliput, guys. Robinson scored 22 points, with 14 rebounds and 9 blocked shots, and hit the layup on an in-bounds play with :06 left that gave Navy a 71-70 victory and a berth in the East regional final against No. 1-ranked Duke.

Golfers talk about wanting to bomb their tee shots, but seldom in the sport do they actually see a real explosive. That changed last week when a golfer searching for an errant tee shot found a half-buried hand grenade near the eighth fairway of Georgia's Augusta Municipal Golf Course, once the site of an Army base. Unsure whether the grenade was still alive, the Richmond County sheriff's bomb squad safely detonated the device.
