ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.  - While growing up in San Diego, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones idolized Tony Gwynn as a player, then later gained greater admiration for him after getting to know the Padres Hall of Famer as a person. So the news of Gwynn's death Monday at age 54, after a four-year battle with cancer, hit Jones especially hard. "I've known the man for most of my adult life, so it's tough when someone passes like that, especially the impact he'd had on not just myself, but on countless major leaguers, and just people in general, in the San Diego community," Jones said.

Steve Fisher is the name brand for San Diego State basketball, the professorial former coach of Michigan and the "Fab Five. " With white hair and dark-framed glasses, he's what your grandpa would look like if he taught yoga and stuck to a high-fiber diet. Kawhi Leonard is the complete-player star, a 6-foot-7 sophomore averaging a double-double at 15 points and 10 rebounds per game. Leonard plays with a big heart and even bigger hands. A reporter at the Tucson regional asked Leonard at a news conference if he could display one of his gargantuan mitts.

Baltimore native A. Norman Webb Jr. pursued lacrosse with a passion for most of his life as a player, coach and organizer, and the sport's national governing body is much richer because of it. Webb, a graduate of the Gilman School and a Lacrosse Hall of Fame member who died Aug. 20 at age 62, willed to U.S. Lacrosse a $4.5 million gift, the largest ever received by the organization. The bequest dwarfs the nonprofit organization's second-largest gift of $400,000, and more than doubles its endowment of $2.1 million.

Rookie linebacker Joe Martin signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in May. A former walk-on at San Diego State, Martin registered a tackle and a forced fumble in Monday night's 29-3 preseason victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. How did it feel to knock the football out of wide receiver Jermaine Jamison's hands in the fourth quarter? It felt great. It was my first defensive play in the NFL. I was excited. You start to breathe and then you get that cool air in your lungs and it gets kind of hard to breathe when you haven't done much.

SAN DIEGO -- Less than a month ago, San Diego State senior wide receiver Az-zahir Hakim sat in a California jail, uncertain not only of his football future, but of his life.The All-America candidate had been arrested on suspicion of joining two teammates in the gang rape of an 18-year old woman at his home in El Cerrito and was being held on $1 million bail. After two days of turmoil and negative publicity, Hakim was released when the district attorney ruled there was insufficient evidence.

Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie sees Jasmine Thomas as someone who is never satisfied. Thanks to the junior guard, the Blue Devils now stand a win away from their first Final Four since 2006. Thomas matched her career-high with 29 points and sprinkled her stat line with a little bit of everything, and second-seeded Duke ended No. 11 seed San Diego State's surprising NCAA tournament run with a 66-58 victory Saturday to reach the regional final. "She's just a very hungry player, someone who loves to get out there and dictate and on both sides of the ball," McCallie said.

By the time Jodie Meeks got going for Kentucky, Notre Dame was all but packing its bags for New York. The Irish were up by 15 points before Meeks made his second basket, on just his fourth shot with 12:18 left in the game, and the Irish survived a 17-5 run late by the visiting Wildcats to end a 10-game losing streak to Kentucky with a 77-67 victory Wednesday night to advance to the National Invitation Tournament semifinals. "They did a great job of guarding him," Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie said.

San Diego State coach Chuck Long was asked this question yesterday after giving Notre Dame a scare: Which team was better - the Fighting Irish or Cal Poly, which beat the Aztecs a week earlier? "That's a tough question," Long said, chuckling a bit. "It's hard to say who's better. They both beat us." That might say as much about Notre Dame's play in a 21-13 come-from-behind home victory as the Fighting Irish's four turnovers and struggles to establish a running game against a makeshift San Diego State defensive line.

SAN DIEGO -- The final pre-game news conference and team luncheon were staged aboard the venerable USS Midway, once a mighty aircraft carrier and now a museum docked in the San Diego Harbor. Navy and Marine Corps fighter planes and helicopters zoom through the skies all over the area. Hundreds of ships in port for the holiday season sit at the 32nd Naval station a short hop from downtown. The thousands of fans who purchased tickets from the Naval Academy Athletic Association - they outdid sales at Colorado State by more than 4-to-1 - have begun to swarm into the city, assuring the Poinsettia Bowl of a distinct nautical flavor in its first postseason venture.

San Diego -- The baby of the bowls is off to an encouraging start. Prodded by the Mountain West Conference to launch a second postseason game in San Diego, certified for play last spring by the NCAA and buoyed by the appearance of the Naval Academy and its legion of fans for the kickoff event, the Poinsettia Bowl is headed to an initial success. In the past year, everything has fallen conveniently into place for officials of the well-received Holiday Bowl, who have an added starter for their work log. "All of a sudden, things started building up, and here we are," said Holiday Bowl executive director Bruce Binkowski.
