Saudi Arabia has agreed to provide Jordan with half its daily oil needs, Jordanian officials said Wednesday, in a move that observers said is aimed at weaning Jordan from its reluctance to apply a U.N. trade embargo against Iraq. The provision of oil would help cushion some of the cost for Jordan of enforcing an embargo against Iraq, which invaded Kuwait three weeks ago. For the past decade, Jordan has received 90% of its crude from Iraq.

War and politics brought restrictions to Jordanian motorists Tuesday and sent officials to Syria looking for new supplies of oil. Allied bombing of Iraqi highways has severely limited Amman's primary source of fuel and ignited a political dispute between Jordan and the United States. For the second time in six days, U.S.

Things could be worse for contemporary R&B. Even Sunday's poorly paced "Holiday Cooldown" at the Wiltern Theatre had some noteworthy moments: a too-brief solo set by En Vogue's Terry Ellis, the spectacle of the resurrected Mary Jane Girls. Less can be said of other hitmakers who played at this concert, sponsored by KKBT-FM ("The Beat") as a benefit for homeless teens.

A piece of Indiana hardwood became Joakim Noah's red clay of Roland Garros on Monday night. "It not only feels good, it smells good, it tastes good. I can't even describe it," the son of Yannick Noah said after collapsing flat on his back on the court after Florida won the NCAA title, then stayed there, basking in the moment. You half expected Noah to fall to his knees and clench his fists with emotion the way his father did when he won the French Open in 1983.

Ralph Sampson was a guest of Laker owner Jerry Buss during the National Basketball Assn. finals at the Forum last spring. Unless there is a drastic improvement in his health, that may be as close as Sampson comes to a championship in this league. On Saturday, the Golden State Warriors' 7-foot 4-inch center scored just 1 point against his former teammates, the Houston Rockets. He missed all 4 of his shots from the floor, had just 5 rebounds and committed a team-high 6 turnovers.

For a country operating under strict economic sanctions and the threat of war, Iraq is an awfully busy place. Ships carrying tons of Australian wheat and Vietnamese rice unload their cargo every week in the port of Umm al Qasr. France's giant Alcatel telecom firm is working on a $76-million project to repair the country's telephone system, heavily damaged during the Persian Gulf War.

Kings 94, Lakers 82 (final) The final quarter was of little consequence.  The game was decided in the third quarter. What stood out for the Lakers was the activity and energy of Jordan Hill. Andrew Goudelock made his last attempt to impress the team, scoring nine points in the final 2:34.  Goudelock and rookie Darius Johnson-Odom both have non-guaranteed contracts and might not make the final roster. Rookie Robert Sacre seems a lock to be with the Lakers on opening night.

Lyrics for $800, please. Answer: "Stephen Sondheim had him in mind when he wrote, 'Isn't it rich?-Aren't we a pair?-Me here at last on the ground-You in mid-air."' Who is Michael Jordan? Yo, Mike, you can come down now. Last of the Wright Bros., Air Man, Holy Ghost of Hang Time . . . What else can we call him? His arms and legs, they're so pliable, and the way he bends them, so they look like they're coming at you from 800 different angles--he's Gumby! Elgin, Connie, Doc, they were all electrifying in their day, but Jordan has turned it up a kilowatt with those tongue-wagging, crowd-gagging, arms-waving, legs-splaying, morale-shattering, reputation-flattering, bullet-headed tomahawk jams.

I so wish I could watch Chris Paul continue to play basketball and show everyone what a mighty competitor he is. But I fear the absolute worst. One more Clippers collapse, and that appears to be a certainty come Friday, and the basketball season is over. And you know what that means? We have to start paying attention to the Dodgers and Angels. Or worse. Icing. The NBA playoffs were not about winning a championship, but getting us deep into June without having to watch Joe Blanton pitch or listening to Charley Steiner describe an underachieving team's performance.

Already an All-American sprinter and part-time starter on Oregon's basketball team, Jordan Kent felt the lure of a third calling far from the heat of competition. He was in the school's athletic department offices last July when he had a chance encounter with wide receiver coach Dan Ferrigno, a man he recognized only as one of the Ducks' assistant football coaches.
