It has been four weeks since Navy added to its string of victories over Army in college football's most venerated rivalry, but the amicable athletic animosity between the nation's two oldest service academies does not begin and end on the gridiron. Their reciprocal mantras - "Go Navy, beat Army" and "Go Army, Beat Navy" - reverberate through their respective athletic programs all year round, and the intensity of the rivalry was very much on display for Saturday's nationally televised basketball doubleheader at Alumni Hall.

In opera, it's the great arias that sell the tickets.But some of opera's most incandescent moments occur not when soloists commence their gladiatorial struggles against lengthy phrases and impossibly florid passages, but when the multitudes assemble on stage to belt out the great choruses that dot the operatic landscape."

The professional theater company typically stages five productions throughout the summer, with professional actors from Baltimore, New York City and Washington. Theatre on the Hill has 600 subscribers. The decision to temporarily suspend production was difficult, said Ira Domser, producer and one of the founders of the Westminster-based company, but renovations to the 500-seat main stage are long overdue.

GAME TO WATCH No. 12 West Virginia at No. 18 UCLA, tomorrow, 3:45 p.m., chs. 13, 9 -- Coach John Beilein says that the Mountaineers' first regular-season appearance on the national airwaves in more than 20 years is a big deal, but not as important as the distraction that has had Kevin Pittsnogle listening for the ring of a cell phone at practice. His wife, Heather, could give birth any day. The 6-foot-11 senior from Martinsburg is one of the reasons West Virginia makes 11.2 three-pointers a game, second in the nation.

Rule No. 1 of Induction Day at the U.S. Naval Academy: Do not speak unless spoken to. Rule No. 2: If you are spoken to, there are only two possible responses: Sir, yes sir! or Ma'am, yes ma'am! It might sound simple, but for many of the 1,200 freshmen - or plebes - who arrived at the academy yesterday morning for six weeks of physical and mental training, the first, and most important, order of the day proved a challenge. "Ma'am, yes ma'am!" one plebe stammered to a male upperclassman.
