As many as 100,000 Cuban women--hundreds visibly pregnant, others carrying small children--marched Friday along a seaside boulevard here as Fidel Castro's government appealed for the return of 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez. "Bring back our son!" the women cried, waving Cuban flags as they moved slowly up the Malecon coastal highway to the U.S. diplomatic mission in Havana. "We want our son!" The protest marked a return to the larger demonstrations of early December.

Candace Parker scored 21 points and Katie Smith added two late three-point baskets to help the U.S. hold off Cuba, 85-79, in its opening game at the FIBA Americas tournament Wednesday in Valdivia, Chile. With the score tied at 71-71 midway through the fourth quarter, Smith made consecutive three-point shots. Cuba answered with a basket to close within four, but could get no closer. "I think it was a great win for us," U.S. Coach Anne Donovan said.
