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.

Actually, I'm a pretty good swimmer. The way I play golf, I have to be," he said.He was in Annapolis to dedicate the academy's ultramodern performing arts center in its new $30 million Alumni Hall.
