Crystal Langhorne couldn't contain her excitement. Finally, after losing 14 games in a row to Duke, the fourth-ranked Maryland Terrapins had won. And Langhorne yelled it to her teammates before they even got to the locker room. No one would blame the Terrapins for savoring this one.

It would be a shame if Thomas Mapfumo's lack of flash onstage keeps the Zimbabwean singer from the audience his music deserves. During his hour-plus opening set at the Music Machine on Friday, there were no resounding climaxes, no charismatic outbursts, no catchy choruses, no spectacular solos--in short, none of the customary methods for connecting with an audience.

Robert Mugabe, prime minister of Zimbabwe, has once again demonstrated his remarkable ability to offend foreigners and opponents, this time converting his electoral victory into a public-relations defeat. Critics must not forget the basics. The election was, in the judgment of independent observers, fair and open.

Adrenaline kicked into overdrive when the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company shredded the stage of the Irvine Barclay Theatre on Friday with brute power, dizzying energy and unlimited stamina in a program dedicated to Southern California's preeminent choreographer, Donald McKayle. The four works included a world premiere tribute to McKayle, "Mighty Fortress," set to Bach's Cantata No. 80 by company artistic director Kevin Ward.

The Komets, however, had no idea how much the Centurions would improve. The No. 5 Centurions, dominating the boards and showing some late-season muscle, routed Kearny, 49-35.

A survey of what records I'd buy each month on a $25 budget. Discounts are available, but the assumption is that an album costs $8, a 12-inch single $4 and seven-inch single $2. March albums: U2's "The Joshua Tree" (Island)--Remarkably, this Irish band, for all its critical acclaim and audience devotion, has never had a Top 10 album in this country. The closest the band came was No. 12--a position reached by both 1983's "War" and 1984's "The Unforgettable Fire."
