Valparaiso Coach Homer Drew missed Saturday's game with Oakland (Mich.) after being was admitted to the hospital Friday night because of discomfort in his chest. Drew has already been released from the hospital and expects to coach in Monday's game against Western Illinois. He underwent initial tests that revealed that further tests were not warranted. An angiogram indicated that there was no blockage and doctors determined only medication was needed to relieve further problems.

Torii Hunter implored his teammates to get that "dawg" in them, an attitude the Angels center fielder described as a mixture of confidence, bravado and swagger and not an ounce of timidity. Ervin Santana, the Angels' fine young right-hander, brought a pooch, putting his team in a four-run, first-inning hole. The Angels' offense brought a pit bull, roaring back to tie the score in the eighth.

Excuses. We've sure heard them. Cal State Fullerton doesn't have a winning men's basketball program because the gym is small and drab, because it is virtually empty on game nights, because kids today want new and shiny, want glitz. UC Irvine hasn't had a winning men's basketball program because there is no tradition, because the high academic standards can be a deterrent.

Bryce Drew's three-point shot that beat Mississippi, 70-69, at the buzzer has caused a problem for his father, Valparaiso Coach Homer Drew. "I'll have to find a new play for the end of the game," Homer said. "It's been shown on TV so many times everyone has seen it." Florida State is today's Midwest Regional opponent for the Crusaders and the Seminoles can't quit talking about what is becoming known as "the shot." "We were in the locker room when we heard the crowd go crazy," LaMarr Greer said.

* How they got there: The Harrick family reunion this Friday against Valparaiso was scheduled when Rhode Island and the exiled UCLA coach dropped the tournament's biggest bombshell, a second-round upset of top-seeded Kansas won by the quickness of guards Tyson Wheeler and Cuttino Mobley. Less noticed was the inside play of Luther Clay, a transfer who could face his former team, Purdue, in a regional final.

Fathers and sons. It's a story told a million times in a hundred thousand ways, but it never loses its power. You wonder, though, if it has ever been told quite the way it will be Friday in St. Louis. On one bench, a coach and his two sons will fight side by side for tiny Valparaiso. Homer Drew is the Valparaiso coach, Bryce Drew is the shooter who launches upsets from his fingertips, and Scott Drew is his father's apprentice, an assistant coach.

The son had dreams, and he had, of course, the name. The name. You are born Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and you figure some things are meant to be. The father watched, and waited quietly for reality to intrude. "When he was in high school," Abdul-Jabbar said recently about his namesake son, "I think he had kind of an idea that he was genetically endowed to play in the NBA." No nickname necessary here, just the legacy of the league's all-time leading scorer. Forget Shaq and Hakeem and David Robinson.

With not a "going, going, gone!" but a "once, twice, sold!" the baseball that Mark McGwire sent over the fence for his historic 70th home run set yet another record Tuesday--bringing a winning bid of $2.7 million, by far the most ever paid for a piece of sports memorabilia. And that doesn't count the sales commission, which brought the total price for the ball--auctioned at Madison Square Garden--to $3,005,000.
