The U.S. men's basketball team is proving in Beijing what every coach from pee-wee hoops to the big guys has known all along. Defense will conquer all. The Americans have struggled with their three-point shooting and even their free throws, but their defense has been spectacular. Against Greece, which beat the United States in the world championships two years ago, the Americans helped force 25 turnovers yesterday. The U.S. had 15 steals and seven blocked shots. Greece, meanwhile, had just four steals and one blocked shot.

ATHENS - There was unexpected drama at softball and expected dominance at women's basketball yesterday, as each U.S. Olympic team furthered its image of invincibility. The softball team actually allowed an opponent to play a full regulation game against it, rather than having the game called after five innings because the lead was seven runs. It was only the third time in seven preliminary-round games that a team went the distance against the United States. And it even let Taiwan get a runner to third base for only the third time in these Olympics.

Once upon a time, a big college football game could exist without some kind of apocalyptic label. Its bigness was so self-evident, the game didn't need to be labeled as The Duel of the Schools with No Rules or it didn't fall on Saturation Saturday. But now it's not enough merely to describe tomorrow's Ohio State-Michigan game on ABC (WMAR/Channel 2 and WJLA/Channel 7, 3:30 p.m.) as a renewal of one of the nation's most heated rivalries, this time being contested by the top two ranked teams in the country, with a berth in the national championship game at stake.

Defending Class 1A state champion Glenelg outclassed visiting South Carroll in a 67-32 opening-day romp last night, spoiling the Cavaliers' coaching debut of Steve Luette. Glenelg's defense swarmed over South Carroll with constant pressure and double-teams, creating 37 turnovers. The Cavaliers got only 39 shots, making 12. The disparity between the teams was clearly evident statistically. The Cavaliers were outrebounded by the Gladiators, 34-18. Glenelg handled the ball much better, making just 19 turnovers.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Will the real Oakland A's show up to play the Orioles the next two days? Or will the impostors who fattened the batting averages of the Cleveland Indians make a return appearance?As much trouble as the Orioles have had scoring runs this season, they had to wince when they saw the bombardment the Indians dropped on the A's last weekend. The three-time defending AL champions gave up 35 runs in two very uncharacteristic games against Cleveland -- and then had a day off to tend to their wounds.

FUMMM-BLLLE!No matter who you are or where, that word only sounds natural coming from ABC's Keith Jackson, the unchallenged voice of college football.Jackson, 65, begins his 28th season calling the action on the college game with Sunday's Kickoff Classic (Channel 13, 2 p.m.) between Nebraska and West Virginia at Giants Stadium.This season finds Jackson as folksy and as spry as ever, with more than a few opinions about his sport of choice and the direction it's headed.For example:* Jackson believes student-athletes who have taken college football scholarships, only to up and leave for the pro ranks at the first opportunity, are "mercenaries."

SAN ANTONIO - They weren't supposed to beat that "greatest ever" Los Angeles Lakers team last year. The one with the four Hall of Famers. They weren't supposed to get by Shaquille O'Neal, but they did twice, including this year without him having the distraction of Kobe Bryant. They weren't supposed to be here, and probably wouldn't be if Dwyane Wade hadn't been hurt. They weren't supposed to survive the early-season riot and coach Larry Brown's riotous season. And they weren't supposed to be playing anymore today.

BOSTON - Will he pitch again this October? "I can't think about that right now, not after the day I've had," Curt Schilling said last night. Then again, he can afford to be coy. The Red Sox are up 2-0 on the Cardinals in this Curt Schilling World Series, so why bother worrying about it, even if the doctor said he couldn't be sure Schilling's ankle tendon could be stitched in place a third time. Out in the right-field seats last night in damp, happy Fenway, savvy members of Red Sox Nation knew the real score.

Family members have been deeply touched by the outpouring of emotion and support in the aftermath of Hall of Fame quarterback John Unitas' death, his son Chad said yesterday. "It's honestly unbelievable. I know who my father is and was as an athlete, but the absolute support and outpouring of love is just unbelievable," said Chad Unitas, 23, of Lutherville. The legendary quarterback, who played 17 seasons for the Baltimore Colts beginning in 1956, suffered a heart attack and died about 3 p.m. Wednesday while exercising at a Timonium physical therapy center.

The TV repairman: Jim Valvano is so good doing studio for college hoops on ESPN one wonders when ABC is going to get around to using him in similar fashion. I should charge for these worthwhile tips.* It's called digital split-screen imaging, the routine wherShowtime had Sugar Ray Leonard interviewing himself prior to Ray getting belted by Terry Norris on the cable last Saturday. Producer David Dinkins Jr. asked the unrehearsed questions first to get the fighter answering spontaneously, then Ray sat down and asked the same questions.

NEW YORK - Baseball's troubled labor history has turned optimism into an endangered outlook, but there were indications last night that the players and owners were closing in on a new labor agreement. Commissioner Bud Selig arrived in Manhattan yesterday afternoon to join the negotiations and the two bargaining teams moved back and forth between the offices of Major League Baseball and the players union to exchange ideas and work on contract language. There still appeared to be a gap between each side's proposals on increased revenue sharing and a luxury tax plan, but management officials seemed more confident that the remaining differences would be worked out before the union strike date threatens tomorrow's games.
