All Ian Chiles wanted, whether he was drafted or not, was a chance to play in the NBA. The 7-foot-2, 260-pound former Morgan State center didn't hear his named called during the NBA draft June 26, but soon he'll get his long-awaited chance to play for an NBA team. On Monday, the Washington Wizards named Chiles to the team's 16-man roster for the Las Vegas Summer League, which begins Friday. The news came as a surprise to Ian's father, who knew the Wizards were considering his son but was unsure whether he'd make it. "I didn't know whether he made it or it was a tryout," Joel Chiles said.

- A series of strong aftershocks from last month's devastating quake rocked Chile on Thursday as a new president was sworn into office. The strongest aftershock, with a magnitude of 6.9, was nearly as strong as the quake that devastated Haiti's capital on Jan. 12. The Chilean navy issued a tsunami warning while the U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the aftershocks were too small to cause dangerous waves beyond Chile's central coast. President Sebastian Pinera was inaugurated at a congressional building in coastal Valparaiso before the building was evacuated as a precaution.

Yesterday in one sentence: There were no matches and it was much sadder than I thought it would be; I survived. What's on tap: Brazil vs. Chile, 12 p.m., ABC; Colombia vs. Uruguay, 4 p.m., ABC What you'll see: The knockout rounds are typically better than the group stage, which is kind of unfathomable considering how much fun the groups were. The first day features four of the five South American teams, which is only sad considering they will be knocking themselves out and weaken the tournament in that sense.

Yesterday in one sentence: They were draws in the scorebook, but Mexico beat Brazil, 0-0, and South Korea beat Russia, 1-1. What's on tap: Australia vs Netherlands, noon, ESPN; Spain vs. Chile, 3 p.m.; ESPN; Cameroon vs. Croatia, 6 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: I said yesterday would decide Group A, and it did in the sense that Brazil decided they didn't terribly want to take control of the group. The goalless draw with Mexico leaves both teams on four points, and a draw today in the Croatia-Cameroon game leaves the juicy possibility that all four teams could finish on four points and create the kind of silly chaos only the World Cup can provide.

WASHINGTON -- The Spanish judge who wants Britain to extradite Gen. Augusto Pinochet, former dictator of Chile, for trial concerning human rights violations, is practicing what is called "justice without borders." However, borders are akin to fences, and good fences make good neighbors. If international law ignores fences, will nations be more neighborly?Prosecuting Pinochet might expand the "rule of law"; it certainly would involve ideological willfulness tarted up in the trappings of law. Pinochet was a nasty ruler who mandated torture, hostage-taking and murder -- probably including murder on Embassy Row in Washington.

New York.LAST YEAR I spent Christmas in Chile. I chose that time of year to go and visit my son partly to get away from winter in New York but mostly to escape the holiday season. In Chile I would be a tourist, an onlooker, not expected to get into the holiday spirit and not having to wonder how to spend Christmas Day.My discomfort over Christmas goes back to my English childhood. In that time and place, if you were Jewish, you simply didn't celebrate Christmas. Nor was there any attempt to raise Hanukkah to almost equal status -- and in so doing distort that lovely but small holiday into something it was never meant to be. I vividly remember going to get my hair cut one late-December day and being asked by the hairdresser what I had got for Christmas.

A MEMORABLE PLACE It was January, and I was thinking forward to spring and fishing my favorite trout stream. Winter for a fisherman is a time of restlessness. But it was not winter everywhere, and it occurred to me that the rivers in the Southern Hemisphere were running strong and fast, and the trout were probably rising. Within 30 days I was on the water in Southern Chile. The western region of Patagonia, about three hours south of Santiago by air, has become a draw for fisherman the world over.

A MEMORABLE PLACEAt the end of a year's assignment in Chile, my wife and I received from friends a weekend stay at La Hosteria de la Colina, a wonderful B & B in Villarrica. While Sue and I had traveled a few hours north and east of Santiago, we had never been to the south.Many who come to live and work in Chile from overseas manage to head south to camp or tour at some point, and so we had heard a great deal about this area. Some of our Chilean friends made treks there as well. That made us eager for the experience, and we welcomed this gift with real delight.

WASHINGTON -- Joel Chiles remembers taking his youngest son, Ian, to a carnival many years ago. Ian was 10 years old, and he wanted to play the basketball game in which you win a prize for a certain amount of made shots. Joel gave Ian three $1 bills to play before he turned to talk to some friends. As time passed, Joel noticed that Ian kept shooting. "I'm thinking to myself, 'I only gave him three dollars,' " Joel Chiles said. "So I went over there to see why he was still shooting, and the guy running the game said he kept letting him shoot because Ian had such a pretty shot.

  NORFOLK, Va. -  As a native of Boston and longtime Red Sox fan, LeVelle Moton grew up hearing about how his baseball team was cursed. Upon becoming North Carolina Central's coach five years ago, Moton began hearing it again. The Eagles put an end to such talk Saturday, though. N.C. Central guard Jeremy Ingram scored 29 points to lead the top-seeded Eagles past No. 3 Morgan State, 71-62, in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday night at Scope Arena . It was N.C. Central's first postseason tournament title in 64 years.

Ian Chiles is thriving in the paint, shooting the ball well and inspiring fear in opponents who take shots by rejecting many of them. “You win games a lot of time with your guard play,” Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said, “but if you have a strong post presence, it is important, because those are where the higher-percentage shots come from. And also, as a defender, you have someone in there protecting against those higher-percentage shots.”   The 7-foot-2 senior center has blocked 14 shots in the past two games, including a career-high nine against Norfolk Sate on Saturday.    Chiles is second in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference with 3.1 rejections per game, and has amassed 68 blocks on the season, and 171 in his career.    Chiles also scored 23 points in Morgan State's (9-13, 7-3)

The accusations range from bearing the responsibility for death squad killings and unauthorized wiretaps to paying bribes and siphoning money from government ministries.

Chilean white wines have a dubious track record at best, but this splendid chardonnay is one of the best made in South America at a sensational price. It's a brilliant wine, bursting with appley fruit and toasty, yeasty flavors. Most impressive is its brilliant acidity, giving it a finish that many a $30 white Burgundy can't match.
