With all due respect to Weber State men's basketball coach Ron Abegglen and his charges, the chances are pretty strong that the Wildcats, the 14th seed in the West, are going to have the hammer dropped on them tonight by third seed North Carolina.And Baltimore area viewers will probably have Michelle Dowd to thank for not having to see the Tar Heels run wild on the Wildcats.It is Dowd, the programming administrator at Channel 13, Baltimore's CBS affiliate, who convinced the network that it would be better for area viewers to see tonight's George Washington-Indiana game, rather than Weber State-North Carolina, for particular reasons.

Wow. Does Maureen Dowd have an amazing job, or what? Not only does the New York Times columnist occupy some of the most exclusive real estate in journalism, she got her editors to pay her way to Denver to score some dope and get high. She sold the junket as a reporting trip. She'd been writing about Colorado's legalization of marijuana and wanted to see how the rollout was going. Makes sense. You don't cover the Super Bowl from your family room TV. But you also don't suit up. And when the rookie doper - called a "noob" in the business - ate her way through an entire marijuana candy bar instead of taking just a bite, she had a really, really bad trip.

"That is now starting to spill over on the track."

A former Duke University student sued the school yesterday, claiming he was wrongly given a failing grade last spring because he was a member of the men's lacrosse team. Kyle Dowd, 22, who played his first two seasons at Johns Hopkins before transferring to Duke, says in his lawsuit that he was failed in a politics course because visiting professor Kim Curtis was influenced by the sexual assault case against three other lacrosse players. The allegations, made by an African-American college student and exotic dancer after a March party, had triggered a campus debate about whether athletes were coddled and whether a racist "culture" existed on the team.

The company that manages two Anne Arundel County-owned golf courses has not adhered to a self-imposed deadline for providing documentation to police investigators to prove that it has not employed illegal immigrants, prompting county government officials to independently demand the information by today. Debra J.C. Dowd, a Richmond, Va., attorney representing Billy Casper Golf LLC, had told county police that she would provide a report detailing the company's compliance with federal employment eligibility requirements by Monday, but said yesterday that she had been waiting to learn if the county would drop its investigation in return for the audit.

Northwestern's Katrina Dowd has scored more goals than any other player in the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse tournament, and her record-breaker would make any highlight reel, but not just because it put the No. 1 Wildcats in position to play for their fifth straight national championship. With her team trailing by a goal in overtime of Friday night's tournament semifinal, Dowd made a desperation dive to save a loose ball and flipped it over her shoulder into the goal. The junior attacker seemed to have no angle toward the net, but her 18th tournament goal tied the game at 12 in the first overtime and Meredith Frank's goal won it, 13-12, over No. 4 Penn one minute, 27 seconds into sudden-death double overtime at Johnny Unitas Stadium at Towson University.

A sloppy first half in last night's Class 2A-1A state championship game - poor passing, miscommunications and an offense that produced just one goal - challenged Glenelg boys lacrosse coach Josh Hatmaker to find a way to calm his team down. The pressure of a bid for a second consecutive state title and the maintenance of an undefeated season burdened the No. 6 Gladiators against Southern-Anne Arundel at UMBC. But Glenelg finally took control in the second half and pulled away for a 7-4 victory.

Washington -- Saying that he wanted to be "more precise" about what he had done, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales acknowledged yesterday that he had a role in approving an aide's recommendation to dismiss several U.S. attorneys last year, but he denied that he was involved in the process of identifying which individual prosecutors should be replaced. His remarks, in an interview with NBC News, were the first by Gonzales seeking to reconcile his public statements about his involvement in the firings with internal e-mail made public by the Justice Department on Friday.

NEW YORK - John Dowd has read Pete Rose's new book. "I concluded after reading it," Dowd said, "that he never read my report. He's autographed it and sold it but never read it." Dowd is the Washington lawyer whose 1989 investigation of Rose and his betting habits led to the lifetime banishment from baseball from which Rose is trying desperately to escape during his lifetime. Commissioner Bud Selig has shown no inclination to reinstate Rose. Should he ever take that step, Selig will very likely rule out the possibility of Rose's managing again or even taking a meaningful front-office job. If Rose is reinstated so he can be eligible for the Hall of Fame, his chances of election by the writers seem to be slim and by the veterans committee virtually nonexistent.
