Wisconsin was put on five years' probation and lost some football and basketball scholarships Tuesday after an investigation found a shoe store gave unadvertised discounts to athletes. But the NCAA did not strip the school of any postseason awards, including the 2000 men's Final Four. The NCAA reduced the number of football scholarships the university can offer in 2002-03 and 2003-04 from 25 to 20. It ordered the school to cut a men's basketball scholarship in 2003-04.

Marion Jones, who lost her 100-meter world title to Zhanna Pintusevich-Block of Ukraine last week, gained some consolation Friday by winning their rematch in the Weltklasse Golden League track and field meet at Zurich, Switzerland. Running into a stiff wind, Jones was timed in 10.94 seconds, ahead of Chandra Sturrup of the Bahamas (10.99) and Ekaterini Thanou of Greece (11.08). Pintusevich-Block was fourth, in 11.16 seconds.

A two-day medal drought for U.S. athletes at the World Outdoor Track and Field Championships ended Thursday when three men reached the medal stand--and several compatriots are poised to follow. Allen Johnson avenged his fourth-place finish in the Sydney Olympics by winning the 110-meter hurdles in 13.04 seconds, the world's fastest time this year. Pole vaulter Nick Hysong didn't equal his Sydney gold-medal finish but won bronze before a crowd of 33,140 at Commonwealth Stadium.

Marion Jones heard the whispers. She had a bad back. She had a bad leg. Her form was bad and her psyche was shattered when she lost her 100-meter world title. Jones made rumors of her demise appear premature Wednesday. Running in the soft twilight at Commonwealth Stadium, she easily won her first-round heat in the 200 meters in 22.70 seconds and led four U.S. women into today's semifinals of the World Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Maurice Taylor, the Houston Rocket forward who recently signed a six-year, $48-million contract, injured his right Achilles' tendon while working out in Michigan and could miss the season. Taylor, injured in a pick-up game, was in a wheelchair when he arrived in Houston Tuesday night. Team physician Dr. Walter Lowe said he wanted to see the level of the tear before making predictions on recovery. Taylor averaged 13 points and 5.5 rebounds for the Rockets last season.

Not until she saw the U.S. flag rising against the blue prairie sky after her victory in the 100-meter hurdles did Anjanette Kirkland let a tear slide down her cheek. She had developed a steely resolve after she was dropped by the Irvine-based HSI group and was dismissed by her coach, John Smith.

It wasn't pretty and it wasn't particularly swift. But the joy that illuminated Marion Jones' face after she won her first world title in the 200 meters said she cared little about flaws in her technique or her non-record time. She wanted vindication, after having lost her 100-meter championship a few days ago, and she wanted a gold medal at the World Outdoor Track and Field Championships. She got both Friday.

The stench wafting over Commonwealth Stadium before the World Outdoor Track and Field Championships--called the "World Games" by a befuddled newscaster in a city trying to pretend it cares--intensified Saturday when another drug cheat got another free pass.
