Richard Hamilton, a British Pop Art pioneer who was credited with coining the name for a movement marked by its ironic and iconic use of commercial and pop culture imagery, has died. He was 89. The Gagosian Gallery, which represents Hamilton, said the artist died Tuesday at an undisclosed location in Britain. It did not give the cause of death. A painter and printmaker born in London in 1922, Hamilton studied at the Royal Academy Schools and the Slade School of Fine Art. He made waves with a prescient 1956 collage — "Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?"

For Richard Hamilton, playing in a physical basketball game couldn't have come soon enough. "It felt good going to the basket again and that was the most physical game I've been in in a while," Hamilton said after scoring 25 points in No. 4-ranked Connecticut's 72-65 victory at Providence (15-12, 8-9 in the Big East) on Monday night. The Huskies (24-2, 15-2), who lost to Miami on Saturday, can win the Big East outright for the fifth time in six seasons by winning at Syracuse on Sunday.

The Clippers lost to the Detroit Pistons for the 13th consecutive time Friday night, but Coach Mike Dunleavy said it didn't have to be that way. "At one point, when we had a 10-point lead, we should have had a 20-point lead," Dunleavy said after the Clippers' 108-90 loss. "Our bigs didn't control the paint like they should have and gave up too many easy buckets around the basket."

On the bright side, all isn't lost yet. The NBA's heart may be in Los Angeles, mourning for the Lakers, or in Phoenix, awaiting the arrival of Shaquille O'Neal and the Miami Heat, but its Finals are here. Just how unfortunate that is, or whether it turns out to be unfortunate at all, depends a lot on tonight's Game 2 when the plucky, if not exactly star-studded Detroit Pistons meet the, uh, efficient San Antonio Spurs.

THE MAN WHO TURNED INTO HIMSELF: A Novel by David Ambrose (St. Martin's Press: $17; 196 pp.). If David Ambrose, an English screenwriter based in Europe, hadn't run out of creative energy two-thirds of the way through this first novel, "The Man Who Turned Into Himself" might have been a classic.

Score one for Coatesville. Two days after failing to stop Kobe Bryant from scoring one of the biggest baskets in recent Laker history, Richard Hamilton got back at his high school nemesis. After offering up two so-so games in the Finals, Hamilton carried the Detroit Pistons to an 88-68 victory and got the latest laugh in an engaging rivalry with Bryant that dates to their head-to-head matchup in the 1996 Pennsylvania state playoffs.
