Andre Collins comes home from work at around 7 p.m. and is greeted enthusiastically by his fiancée, Ashley, and their 10-month-old son, Andre Jr. For the rest of the night, the Collins family enjoys each other's company in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, fully furnished apartment that is paid for by Andre's employer. The next morning Collins bids his family goodbye, hops into his company car and begins his drive through Caserta - a picturesque city in Southern Italy nestled at the foot of the Campanian Subapennine mountains.

They left the University of Maryland without acrimony, disappointed that their playing time on the basketball court was limited, but not bitter toward the coaching staff that kept them sitting through most of the games. Now, Andre Collins and Hassan Fofana are playing a new game. Waiting. Until next season. They are still sitting at Loyola, adhering to an NCAA Division I redshirt rule that makes transfer players ineligible for competition for a year. To both, it is excruciating, yet enlightening.

The Loyola College men's basketball team is off to its best start in 64 seasons, but last night that was no consolation to the Greyhounds or their angry second-year coach. In the wake of a disappointing 80-72 loss to visiting Fairfield before 1,949 at Reitz Arena, Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos saluted Stags senior guard Terrence Todd, who lit up the Greyhounds with a career-high 35 points. Patsos was bothered by the way Loyola (11-6, 5-4) went down on its home court for only the second time this season.

Right tackle Joe Jacoby practiced for the first time in the last two weeks yesterday and is now scheduled to start for the Washington Redskins against the Kansas City Chiefs tomorrow.But the Redskins don't know how long Jacoby, who has a pinched nerve in his neck, will be able to play. If he can't go all the way, rookie Matt Elliott will come in at center and Raleigh McKenzie will move to right tackle.Jacoby didn't start last week, but came in when Mo Elewonibi suffered a knee injury in the second quarter.

Southern High School's Melvin Scott scored 25 points and hit five three-pointers to lead the Baltimore All-Stars to an 86-73 victory over the U.S. All-Stars in the first Charm City Challenge, last night at Towson Center. Scott, who will play for the University of North Carolina next season, put on an impressive display of ball-handling and long-distance shooting, especially in the first half as he nailed four three-pointers and scored 14 points. In fact, the first 10 minutes of the game couldn't have gone much better for Baltimore as it jumped out to a 32-15 lead.

Their top scorer, guard Andre Collins, couldn't make a shot. Their other Maryland transfer, center Hassan Fofana, sat riddled with foul trouble. It was a combination that nearly spelled disaster for the Loyola Greyhounds in the second half yesterday against Rider. After watching his team squander a 19-point lead, however, coach Jimmy Patsos turned to veteran Shane James to keep Loyola from its first three-game losing streak this season. James, the Greyhounds' only third-year starter, drove the lane, spun and scored on a layup with 3.6 seconds to play, preserving a 78-76 win before 2,317 at Reitz Arena.

COLLEGE PARK - Don't tell Andre Collins he is too short to make an impact with the Maryland Terrapins. Don't tell Collins he might not get much playing time for the defending NCAA men's basketball champions. And don't suggest he might be a career backup point guard for as long as he remains with the Terps. To watch Collins compete is to watch a prospect full of fire and energy. This is not a sophomore point guard worried about the pecking order on a roster led by senior Steve Blake, the team's court general and most experienced player, and including freshman John Gilchrist, the blue-chip recruit who is Blake's heir apparent.

COLLEGE PARK - Andre Collins knows plenty about the need to adjust. Ever since he graduated from Crisfield (Md.) High School in 2000, life has been a series of changes for the 5-foot-9 freshman point guard. A year ago, in need of academic help to qualify for the Division I scholarship the University of Maryland had offered him, Collins enrolled at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va. "I had to adjust to getting up at 6 in the morning, lights out at 10 and a whole bunch of rules.

Richie Petitbon, the assistant coach who runs the Washington Redskins defense, never expects much from rookies.Petitbon, who has started only two rookies (Darrell Green and Andre Collins) in the past decade, said, "Anything you get out of a rookie is a bonus."By that definition, Bobby Wilson, a defensive lineman drafted on the first round in April, is giving the team a bonus this year.In the first half of the season, Wilson got most of his action on the special teams and saw only spot duty on the line.
