Coach Tom Cable said Wednesday that he has spoken with Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis about allegations that Cable has a history of violent behavior toward women. "What we talked about is between us and we'll keep it that way," he said. Cable said the conversation came within the last two days and that his job status was not discussed. Cable said he planned to coach the team for the rest of the season. The Raiders are undergoing a "serious evaluation" of allegations made to ESPN by Cable's first wife, Sandy Cable , and former girlfriend, Marie Lutz , that the coach physically abused them at various times during their relationships.

It's nine men and Nancy Lieberman-Cline on the basketball court. Here she comes, gliding to the top of the key, pretending to see no one open.

"She'll talk to you tomorrow at the press conference." The friend was talking about today's news conference for the survivors of Saturday's first cut here at the U.S. Olympic women's basketball trials.

Five-year-old Kevin Charles Grentz has been doing some thinking about his upcoming summer vacation in Barcelona, Spain. He hadn't said much about it, though. Kevin knew that his mother was going to be working there during the Olympics. She is coaching the women's basketball team, and he and his brother Karl are going along. So Theresa Grentz was surprised when Kevin brought up the topic recently. "We don't talk about the Olympics a lot at my house," she said.

The casting call for the U.S. Olympic basketball team seems to have summoned the past, present and future of the women's game for a short, intense conference starting here today. The past? It's here in the form of 33-year-old Nancy Lieberman-Cline, an Olympian in 1976. Lieberman-Cline, basketball legend turned media celebrity, is inexplicably back for one more charge. Then there is Cheryl Miller, the other media celebrity among this field of 56 players.
