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.

For the longest time, T.J. Hall had trouble making the jump into Alumni Hall.He was consigned primarily to the auxiliary gymnasium at Halsey Field House, where the Naval Academy plebe/junior varsity basketball team spends most of its time.During his first two seasons, the 6-foot-3 junior guard from Port Jefferson, N.Y., played in two varsity games and scored a grand total of two points.There was little evidence to suggest that Hall would emerge as the fulcrum of the Navy team that plays host to Colgate today at 4:30 p.m. for the Patriot League championship.

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.

In a blur of duffel bags and lacrosse sticks, tennis rackets and coffee cups, countless cameras pointed toward children entering a new world yesterday, trying to capture the military alchemy that in just a morning would change them from civilian to soldier.This is Induction Day, the seminal experience for midshipmen entering the peculiar life of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis. But in many ways, the weeks ahead will be harder for parents left with only snapshots and imaginings of the rigors awaiting the 1,191 new midshipmen.
