Months after leaving the tangled web that was USC, Aaron Corp is a Spider. With help from GPS, Corp was tracked this week to a far-off football field where he was surrounded by smaller players but taller pines. Meet the recently named starting quarterback for the University of Richmond. Pete Carroll wasn't around this time to reverse the call. In a crazy corollary, Corp made his first start for the Spiders last Saturday, a 34-13 loss at Virginia, which is playing at USC this week.

The streak became Ginny Doyle's constant companion. It went to meals with her. And, of course, to basketball games. It even was mentioned on national television. Ginny Doyle, a 5-foot-11 senior guard/forward for Richmond, hadn't missed a free throw since March 1, 1991. Since then, she established NCAA records for most consecutive foul shots made--by a man or a woman. Previously, the record was 64, set by Joe Dykstra of Western Illinois during the 1981-82 season.

Doyle, a 5-foot-11 senior, scored 22 points.
