PHILADELPHIA -- You can tell by the high-tops that this crowd is serious. As they stride onto the smooth, swept pavement, the trademarks flash like dog tags: Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Converse, Fila. As more and more players arrive, rap spills from a living-room speaker set next to an '80 Riviera parked courtside, announcing that the evening's action is about to commence. Sides are chosen, and soon the basketball is in play.The Moylan Recreation Center at 25th and Diamond is a proving ground, one of several playgrounds where Philadelphia's best players have always come to learn the game, to test themselves, to put their skills on display.

ATHENS - When they post the job for head coach of the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team, there ought to be only one candidate: Dawn Staley - Olympic point guard/Temple University coach/Charlotte Sting player. She doesn't just have serious game. Did you see the Motown-Philly move she made at the end of the U.S. gold-medal game, when rookie Olympian Sue Bird put the ball into Staley's hands? That was done on purpose. The ball should be in Staley's hands. She's the one with the firm grip - in all ways.

CHICAGO -- The formal announcement yesterday of the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team was, in large part, a foregone conclusion.After all, USA Basketball, the body that organizes this country's international efforts, had assembled an 11-member squad that had gone undefeated in a 51-game tour against collegiate and international competition. Any derivation from that list would have been a shock.The only thing left to be decided was the identity of the last team member, and although center Venus Lacy had been playing with the team for the past three weeks, she was still thrilled to get the nod at a team dinner Saturday night.

In an apartment in the middle of Segovia, Spain, Dawn Staley spends most of her days waiting for basketball practice to start.There are worse things than to be a gifted basketball player who sleeps all day, practices for a few hours, plays once a week and collects $2,000 a month for the trouble.It's just that Staley, who was the top player in women's college basketball the past two years at Virginia, expected so much more."It's kind of hard," she said. "Sometimes, I get frustrated and I'm ready to pack my bags and go, and I think it's not even worth it. But I think anybody over in the States would trade places with me for the money.

ROCK HILL, S.C. -- For a moment, it looked as if the Georgia Tech women's basketball team could pull it off.All weekend, the unheralded seventh-seeded Yellow Jackets had taken the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament for a thrill ride, knocking off Maryland, then 18th-ranked Clemson to reach last night's championship game.Their reward was a meeting with No. 1 Virginia, and just as they had beaten the Terps and Tigers on the last shot, Georgia Tech had the ball on the last possession and a chance to win.But senior forward Allison Echols' desperation three-pointer with three seconds left fell short, and the Cavaliers had pulled out a 70-69 win before 4,154 at the Winthrop Coliseum to capture the ACC tournament, and a certain top seed in the NCAA tournament in two weeks.
