The NCAA rejected a petition from the Liberty Bowl to allow it to invite Alcorn State and Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback Steve McNair to the Dec. 31 game.The NCAA cited two reasons:* To qualify for a Division I-A bowl, a team must have at least six victories against I-A teams. Alcorn doesn't even play I-A teams.* Division I-AA has a championship game and the Braves (5-2) might qualify to play in it.

Australian Talia Shacklock and Canadian Kristi Alcorn have no split loyalties this week at the Under-19 World Championships. Even though they play college lacrosse in the United States, they are truly dedicated to their national teams. "Ultimately, it's so special to represent my country," said Shacklock, who just finished her sophomore season at Loyola. "I've got friends on this team from back home, who I love playing with. I've played with them for many years. For them to come over here and I've been accepted into the team so well, it's fantastic."

Severna Park ended Arundel's three-year hold on the county title yesterday by defeating the Falcons by 23 strokes to claim top team honors at the Anne Arundel County Public Schools Golf Tournament.Severna Park's No. 4 player -- junior Andy Alcorn -- led the Falcons (317) and the rest of the field to earn the medalist trophy at Eisenhower Golf Course in Crownsville.Alcorn holed out of the bunker for a birdie on the 193-yard par-3 fourth hole and went on to shoot 38-3876."When I was in the bunker on No. 4, I was thinking about making bogey or even worse, and when it dropped in, it not only turned a possible disaster hole into something good, but it gave me some momentum," said Alcorn, a 16-year-old junior out of Bay Hills Golf Club.

America owes a twisted debt of gratitude to Lee Alcorn, who lost his job as president of the Dallas NAACP last week by bringing mindlessness and bigotry out of the shadows, where the country can examine it instead of pretending we have outgrown it. Everybody braced for its arrival from the moment Joseph I. Lieberman became a candidate for vice president, and Alcorn was the first to deliver it in public. Thank you and, while we're at it, mazel tov. Poor Lieberman. Before Alcorn's outburst, he said he expected no bigotry in this campaign.

Steve McNair was a passing prodigy at Alcorn State. With the Tennessee Titans, he's the king of dink and dunk. One thing seems certain about Super Bowl XXXIV: the Titans will not ask McNair to beat the St. Louis Rams with the deep ball. They will ask him to throw short and improvise in the pocket when his receivers aren't open. McNair has played the role well this season. Missing five games after back surgery, he won nine of 11 regular-season starts and averaged 198 passing yards per game.

DAYTON, Ohio - Excess baggage is in the past for Siena, which faces Maryland tomorrow at MCI Center in the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. The Saints (17-18), the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference representatives who reached their current station by beating Alcorn State in a Tuesday night play-in game, no longer labor under anxiety about roles, trust or expectations. During a five-game run that salvaged a previously disappointing season, fun has been the thing for the Loudonville, N.Y.-based team representing a Jesuit school of 2,700 students.

DAYTON, Ohio - An unexpected scoring spree lifted Siena to an 81-77 victory over Alcorn State last night in the NCAA tournament play-in game before 8,681 at the University of Dayton Arena. The win earned the Saints (17-18) a first-round East Regional date with top seed Maryland on Friday night. A career-high 31 points from junior guard Prosper Karangwa, picking up the slack for star forward Dwayne Archbold, highlighted the firepower for the Saints, who made the NCAA field by winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament and have now won five games in a row. Karangwa shot 12-for-16 and was clutch at the end. His three-point play - he was fouled while hitting a floating jumper - gave Siena a 79-74 lead with 43 seconds to go. Jeff Cammon hit a three-pointer for Alcorn State (21-10)
