WASHINGTON - Washington Wizards guard Juan Dixon has agreed to testify at a hearing on NBA steroid testing policies being convened by a House committee that expressed disappointment that other players have so far declined to appear. House Government Reform Committee Chairman Tom Davis "is not pleased that the [players'] union hasn't been able to fulfill its pledge to secure more players" for tomorrow's hearing, Davis spokesman David Marin said yesterday. The committee says it doesn't want to suggest that basketball has the same problems with steroids as baseball, but that it wants to investigate further and determine why the NBA doesn't have a stronger anti-steroids program.

BOWIE -- It's the speed that first catches your attention when watching Robert Pack. Pushing the ball up the court from one end of the floor to the other he's a blur, which kind of creates a domino effect with his teammates."

This was the season. Forget the recent past, the hard-luck Washington Bullets finally were going to turn things around.Chris Webber and Juwan Howard were on board right from the start, and the drafting of Rasheed Wallace provided a talented set of fresh legs. Then there was the trade for Mark Price, a masterstroke that added a veteran who could offer guidance to the young, budding stars.But just like that it began to unravel -- just like it always seems to do with the Bullets. After an impressive showing by Price on the first day of training camp, the bad news this time would come in the form of a midnight phone call to coach Jim Lynam.

And there was teammate Derrick Coleman, scoring on the inside and dominating the boards.But while the Nets proved to be an effective two-man team last night, the Bullets were benefiting from a balanced offensive attack that was good enough for a 110-102 win that ended Washington's three-game losing streak.Chris Webber scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. Don MacLean had 21 points off the bench.

With his team on the skids recently, losing 11 of its past 1 games, Washington Bullets general manager John Nash has been noticeably absent from the sidelines. It isn't that he has abandoned the team -- it's that he has been evaluating college talent at the Rainbow Classic in Hawaii.And in the land of sunshine and beautiful beaches, Nash struggled through the streak as well, watching Washington's games via satellite."We're up against it," Nash said. "It's been a tough experience from the owner on down.

Just before Juwan Howard left Chicago to join the Washington Bullets, he was given a warning by a friend there."He told me that when you go to the Washington Bullets youmight lose more games in your first year than you totaled in high school and college," Howard said. "I didn't believe it when he said that."It's time to start believing. In three college seasons, Howard lost 22 games. As far as he can remember from high school in Chicago, he lost 19 games in three varsity seasons. With the 1994 portion of the season now complete with Friday's 115-101 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, the Bullets have a 7-19 record and don't seem to be near ending the slump that has led to 11 losses in the past 12 games.
