Her college jersey hangs from the rafters in the Comcast Center at the University of Maryland. Her name graces a road, Vicky Bullett Street, in her hometown in West Virginia. And on Saturday, her visage will light up the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame when Bullett is enshrined there in Knoxville, Tenn. It's an honor that Bullett, never one to tout herself, said she deserves. "I'm very modest, but I like finally giving myself a compliment," the former Terp and two-time Olympic medalist said.

WASHINGTON - For public consumption, Vicky Bullett told the MCI Center crowd that came to pay tribute to her last night that she was at a loss for words to sum up her collegiate and professional basketball career. But words, like points and rebounds, have never been a problem for Bullett, and they flowed on this night when she was honored by the Washington Mystics, the team she played for in her final three WNBA seasons. When asked what people would say about her stellar career, which includes two Olympic appearances and a 1988 gold medal, Bullett, 35, laughed and said, "That girl is crazy."

Impeccable timing has served former Maryland star Vicky Bullett well during her entire career.The timing was right when she dedicated herself to basketball in high school, and it was right when her game peaked in college, securing her a spot on the 1988 Olympic team. The timing was perfect when her professional team in Italy disbanded last year, just as the Women's NBA was gearing up in the United States, with the first game set for tomorrow.Bullett, an All-American at Maryland in 1989, ended a seven-year professional stint in Italy to suit up for the Charlotte Sting of the eight-team WNBA and return to the region where she was the 1989 Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year for the Terrapins.

WASHINGTON - The surfers say that you've caught "big air" when you're propelled high into the sky over a wave. In that vein, Vicky Bullett caught some big air on a couple of big shots yesterday to propel the Washington Mystics to a surprisingly hard-fought 63-59 win over the Detroit Shock. Bullett, who had a game-high 22 points, hit a pair of high-arcing, long-range three-pointers to bail the Mystics (15-6) out of a potentially devastating loss to the worst team in the WNBA, before a sellout crowd of 19,766 to boot.

By the time 2007 ends, Crystal Langhorne should supplant Vicky Bullett as the best player in the history of Maryland women's basketball. Already armed with a national championship that Bullett never won in her four seasons as a Terp, Langhorne, a 6-foot-2 junior, reached 1,000 points faster than anyone else in Maryland history and could surpass Bullett's 1,928, the all-time Maryland mark, next season. Langhorne should also wrest the school's rebounding mark of 968 away from Bullett, as well as further staking a claim as the field-goal percentage champion.

COLLEGE PARK -- Vicky Bullett's name stood atop the Maryland women's basketball scoring and rebounding lists for nearly 19 years, long enough for someone to get attached to that spot. But when Crystal Langhorne, a toddler when Bullett was leading her generation of Terps to a Final Four appearance, grabbed first the rebounding and then the scoring crowns, Bullett was all too willing to move aside.

WASHINGTON - With their best player, Chamique Holdsclaw, in street clothes nursing an ankle injury and facing a 16-point deficit late in the first half, the Washington Mystics, who have had a magical season to date, were in dire need of some mojo. As if on cue, the magic arrived in the second half, as rookie forward Asjha Jones and veteran Vicky Bullett combined to pull the Mystics to a 56-55 win over the Charlotte Sting yesterday at MCI Center. Bullett, the former Maryland All-American, scored 14 points, including the game-winning basket, then made the decisive block on the Sting's final possession to preserve the hard-fought win before a raucous crowd of 18,372 and run the Mystics' home record to 7-0. "We had a lot of heart in the end, and that's good for our team," said Bullett.

WASHINGTON - Since her days at the low post at the University of Maryland, Vicky Bullett has never been at a loss for words, but this season with the Washington Mystics has left her scrambling for the right words. Bullett, an off-season acquisition for the Washington Women's National Basketball Association team, sat at her locker here at MCI Center after a close loss to the Phoenix Mercury last week, puzzled by the inconsistency and the controversy that have marked the Mystics' play to date.

WASHINGTON - The question posed to Vicky Bullett by Washington Mystics general manager Melissa McFerrin after a recent practice seemed simple enough: Just how old are you? But, in keeping with what has become a remarkably complicated season, Bullett fired back with a joking, but telling response. "I'm too old to be right at this point playing this damn game. Does that answer your question?" replied Bullett with a weary grin. Just about everything about this 2000 Women's National Basketball Association season has been downright weary and far more complicated than it was supposed to be for Bullett, Maryland's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, and a two-time Olympian who came to Washington from the Charlotte Sting in an off-season trade.
