February 11, 1992 | LISA DILLMAN, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
The most bewildering moment in Limor Mizrachi's life in America has not happened on the basketball court. And it hasn't occurred while communicating with her University of Maryland teammates, even if center Jessie Hicks' gentle drawl sometimes poses problems. No, it's that simple American greeting that really throws off the Terrapins' starting point guard. How are you? "When I first came here, people would say, 'Hi, how are you?'

Virginia's Dawn Staley drove the lane, dribbled behind her back and kept moving into Maryland's Limor Mizrachi and the padding underneath the basket. Mizrachi gave way. Staley went sprawling and simply remained in that position, wondering if Virginia could maintain its two-point, second-half lead. Mizrachi helped her up--nothing unusual there.

Western Kentucky was bold enough to dream, posing for a preseason photograph with a bus that carried an "L.A. or bust!" sign and completing the picture by superimposing the "Hollywood" sign on a distant Kentucky hillside. After completing a sweep of the Mideast Regional's top two seeded teams with a 75-70 come-from-behind victory over second-seeded Maryland at Mackey Arena Saturday, the fourth-seeded Hilltoppers' dreams will come true.

Traffic jam! I am stuck in a traffic jam for 25 minutes, going nowhere on Stadium Drive in College Park, Md., waiting to get into Cole Field House to see a women's basketball game between Maryland and Virginia. Backed up on an exit ramp for women's hoops! What is this world coming to? I am a doubter.

Julie Rousseau heard that kind of question last summer, when, as an assistant to fired Linda Sharp, she was named interim head coach of the Sparks, then later when she signed a one-year contract as head coach. She heard this question too: "How seriously can you take the WNBA when a high school coach becomes a head coach?"

Is this a strange team or what? The point guard spent last year keeping the Israeli army fit, donning a gas mask every time the sirens signaled incoming Scud missiles from Iraq. The backup power forward, who last season was the conference's top rookie, has spent more time in the coach's doghouse this season than Snoopy, but says you couldn't get her to leave if you paid her.
