Morgan State will conduct a news conference tomorrow morning to name Todd Bozeman as its new men's basketball coach, sources said yesterday. The hiring will represent a second chance for Bozeman, who was forced out of his job at California in August 1996 for making an illegal payment of $30,000 to the family of player Jelani Gardner, who later turned him in to the NCAA. Bozeman was handed an eight-year show-cause sentence by the NCAA, meaning any school that wanted to hire him had to show reasons he should be allowed back into coaching.

When Morgan State finished its men's basketball season three months ago, the school was sick of losing. Meanwhile, Butch Beard was tired of sitting around, drawing a check for 16 months since being fired from the Washington Wizards staff. It took awhile, but Morgan State hopes it took care of both situations by naming Beard as its head coach yesterday to replace Chris Fuller. No one knows if the former NBA player and coach - who led league rival Howard to an NCAA appearance in 1992 - can give the school its first winning season since 1979.

WASHINGTON -- It was one of those games in which you can count the "W" before you even play, but for Howard University, the Dec. 19 home game against Division II Paine College showed just how low a program can go."That was the lowest point for me, athletically, in my life," Howard guard Martin Huckaby said of the 79-78 loss that was, fortunately, watched by only 250 people. "Nothing against Paine College. But we played like a bunch of guys who had never touched a basketball before."That loss dropped Howard's record to 1-8 (the one win was at Miami, of the Big East)

It was raining Friday morning in Indianapolis, and open practices at the RCA Dome for the four teams at the men's Final Four were to begin in a little more than an hour. George Mason was to be first, and it's probably not an accident that it was going earliest, since it would be a shock to see any of the other teams get anywhere close to the overall media attention this weekend that George Mason will. It's also a strong possibility that there are more media following coach Jim Larranaga, the players and school officials this weekend than actual, real George Mason fans.
