SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- On a historic campus where the most recognizable symbol is known as Touchdown Jesus, in a storied college football program where facts are often obscured by myths, Jeff Samardzija and Tom Zbikowski became best friends, roommates and, eventually, two of Notre Dame's biggest stars. They were, and are, decidedly different. Samardzija grew up in nearby Valparaiso, but his long locks and laid-back persona make him seem more suitable for California's Venice Beach. Zbikowski came from the suburbs outside Chicago, but his demeanor is strictly blue-collar.

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley, perhaps a bit peeved by the $5,000 fine the NBA levied on him for criticizing an official, took out some frustration on the Washington Bullets last night.His domination around the basket helped build a big lead through the first three quarters and the Suns cruised to their eighth straight victory, 125-110, in front of 19,023 at America West Arena.And it is his play that has sparked the Suns to a 15-4 record, best in the NBA.It was the fourth straight loss for the Bullets (7-14)

CHICAGO -- There was a telling moment at the close of the second overtime of last night's NBA slam-dance marathon.Scottie Pippen's running, one-handed, off-balance bank shot had just rattled in and out. The horn sounded. The game was going to a third overtime.Charles Barkley smiled, patted Scott Williams on the rump, and said, "Are you tired yet?"Small talk. But infinitely gracious.There are rare nights in sports when the competition and excitement of the event supersede the distinction between winning and losing.

The Capitals have evidently decided to release goaltender Alain Harvey, just two days after he had been assigned to the Baltimore Skipjacks of the American Hockey League.Capitals director of public relations Lou Corletto said last night that he had not been given any official word on the release of Harvey. But Harvey, 22, flew to his home in Montreal last night and said he hoped to catch on with the Milwaukee Admirals of the International Hockey League.TENNISReed Cordish (Gilman) and David Caldwell of Richmond, Va., won the University of Richmond College Invitational doubles on Tuesday, beating Tom Clark of Sydney, Australia, and Sean Brendon of Boston, 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (7-3)

The process of fine-tuning this so-called "powerful" New York Knicks machine -- which doesn't seem to be intimidating the rest of the National Basketball Association -- is, admittedly, taking a little time. The Portland Trail Blazers probably were the best indicator of how far the Knicks have advanced since John MacLeod replaced Stu Jackson.In November in Portland, the Blazers defeated Jackson's Knicks by 16 points. In December in New York, the Blazers defeated MacLeod's Knicks by 16 points.

CHICAGO -- Pro basketball historians had to dig back 24 years to discover a shootout of superstars in an NBA championship series that matched the fireworks in Phoenix Friday night when the Bulls' Michael Jordan and the Suns' Charles Barkley each scored 42 points in Chicago's 111-108 victory.The last such duel occurred April 25, 1969, in Los Angeles when the Boston Celtics' John Havlicek scored 43 and Jerry West had 41 for the winning Lakers.But Friday's game had a far larger audience, and Jordan and Barkley, the game's two most visible players, lived up to their hype.

PHOENIX -- The defending champion Chicago Bulls too advantage of the Phoenix Suns' initial stage fright to gain an early 20-point lead, but then had to fight off repeated Suns rallies to win the opening game of the NBA Finals, 100-92, at the America West Arena last night.A Charles Barkley jump shot pulled the Suns to within 88-85, with more than four minutes remaining.But the Bulls retained their poise. Michael Jordan, who scored 17 of his game-high 31 points in the last quarter, joined Scottie Pippen (27 points)

PORTLAND, Ore. -- He still has that face.The one you'd like to slap.The one with that perpetual pout.The one with that bratty I'm-gonna-tell-Mom leer.The one that would tempt even a nun to make a fist.Oh, age has diminished it some, softened a bit that suggestion of a constant whine.He's no longer the irritating, infuriating Little Sir Pampers of the 1980s, when he was a Boston Celtic, which by itself was reason enough to hate him even without factoring in that snotty face.No, Danny Ainge is no longer Diaper Danny.

It was never a matter of memorizing dead spots on the parquet or the way the lip of the south rim bent ever so slightly. The lighting? Nothing out of the ordinary, Andrew Toney reports. In fact, said the former Philadelphia 76ers guard, the only thing special about the creaky court on 150 Causeway Street was that it served as the stage for his most famous role: the Boston Strangler."My first step out of the locker room, I was in range," Toney says. "It was easy. I have no explanation for it. It was just easy for me to score at Boston Garden."

Opponent: Phoenix SunsSite: America West Arena, PhoenixTime: 9TV/Radio: HTS/WWRC (980 AM)Outlook: Washington has lost 16 straight to the Suns since beating them March 9, 1988, in Landover. The Suns lost their first 13 games of the season, but have responded under new coach Danny Ainge by winning seven of their past 10. The streak has nearly coincided with the return of G Kevin Johnson, who was activated on Nov. 24 after missing the start of the season because of hernia surgery. G Sam Cassell (Dunbar)
