Charles Mitchell had a rough film session Wednesday. Coach Mark Turgeon chewed him out for general laziness, imploring the freshman forward to up his effort and awareness. "I think every mistake he pointed out was me," Mitchell said with a chuckle moments after the Maryland men's basketball team notched a 70-53 win over Georgia Southern before 10,282 at Comcast Center on Saturday night. "He got after me so bad. " It didn't take Mitchell long to move forward. Playing against a handful of friends and acquaintances, the Marietta, Ga., native provided relentless energy off the bench en route to a career-high 13 points and 11 rebounds in the Terps' fourth straight victory.

Lost in the shuffle of perennial college football powers like th University of Miami, Florida State and Georgia, lies a small Division I-AA school down south that has won as many national titles in the past decade as those three put together.Starting nose guard Shawn Haralson says Georgia Southern University is "practically in the middle of nowhere." It's in Statesboro, Ga., right off the coast about 40 miles from Savannah.In his four-plus years there, the Westminster High grad has grown to love the area's fishing and hunting, not to mention "the nicest people you can meet in the world."

Just as the rain fell at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, so did the championship hopes of some leading teams and individuals in the third round of the NCAA men's golf championship yesterday. In the morning, the top 15 teams hit the course with Georgia holding a 9-shot advantage over then-second-place Tennessee. The Bulldogs weathered the storm, even extended their team lead to 11 shots by day's end over new second-place holder, Peach state-rival Georgia Tech. In individual play, Pepperdine's Michael Putnam, a native of often-rainy Tacoma, Wash.

Having a sense of history, Paul Johnson has heard all the reservations about Navy football. The military commitment and academic rigors preclude the ability to recruit players who can win consistently. No one who plays for the Midshipmen is planning on an NFL career. The schedule is too tough. There are just too many detriments. But the former offensive coordinator who signed a six-year contract to become Navy's 36th head coach prefers to discard those thoughts as he prepares to launch a bid to turn around a program that has produced only one victory in the past two seasons.

The Naval Academy has turned to a familiar figure in an effort to resuscitate its floundering football program. Athletic director Chet Gladchuk announced yesterday that former Navy offensive coordinator Paul Johnson has been hired as the institution's 36th head coach, succeeding Rick Lantz, who served as the interim leader of the program after the firing of Charlie Weatherbie. The Midshipmen won one of 21 games the past two seasons, beating Army, 30-28, at PSINet Stadium in 2000. Johnson, 44, will be in Annapolis today to meet with the media and Navy supporters but will not officially work for the academy until his Georgia Southern team concludes its quest for an unprecedented third straight NCAA Division I-AA championship.

Nick Faust caught the ball in the corner, his hands in a shooter's position and his eyes focused on the rim as if the Maryland guard was ready to launch one of his rainbow jumpers. When a Lafayette defender took a step toward Faust, the 6-6 sophomore from Baltimore burst past him decisively and elevated toward the basket. Faust was fouled as he went in for a dunk. The message from second-year Maryland coach Mark Turgeon had apparently reached Faust, whose hesitancy to use his athleticism rather than settle for what has long been an erratic outside shot has been a stumbling block toward his progress in becoming a college star.

Before the start of the season, senior co-captain and safety Wyatt Middleton talked about leaving a legacy unmatched in the history of Navy football. Included in those aspirations were winning an eighth straight bowl game and Commander-in-Chief's Trophy as well as getting to double-figure wins for a second consecutive time. The loftiest ambition of all was the program's first undefeated season of the modern era. While the quest for perfection dissolved on Monday in a 17-14 loss to Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium, the Midshipmen's other objectives remain well within reach.

After learning yesterday that football coach Paul Johnson was leaving for Georgia Tech, Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said keeping the continuity in a successful program could be a significant factor in finding Johnson's replacement. "I think it's really important to keep as much of this glued together as I possibly can," Gladchuk said. "We've got a really good program here in terms of facilities, resources, fan base, television, bowl opportunities. Five years ago, it was all of a vision.

In his own words, he has always been "one play away" from becoming the Navy quarterback. That one play turned into one season, then two, then three, as first Craig Candeto and then Aaron Polanco proved both effective and able to absorb the punishment that accompanies the position. Finally, as a senior, Lamar Owens is no longer a play away. He is firmly entrenched as the starter, has been voted the offensive captain by his teammates and is clearly on center stage. The tricky triple-option offense with which coach Paul Johnson has turned around the Midshipmen now is entrusted to a 5-foot-9, 185-pound whippet who has appeared primarily at mop-up time and on special teams through three years.

A players-only meeting Wednesday morning might have provided the spark that has the University of Georgia rolling along in pursuit of its second NCAA men's Division I golf championship. The Bulldogs, the 1999 winners, have a nine-stroke lead after fashioning a 36-hole total of 558 at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills. Individually, Pepperdine senior Michael Putnam, who celebrated his 22nd birthday Wednesday, scored his second successive 67 yesterday. His 6-under-par 134 put him one shot ahead of first-round co-leader Major Manning of Augusta (Ga.)

Two months ago, on a warm Texas night in Dallas, Navy's football team was on top of the world. The Midshipmen had just routed Southern Methodist, 38-7, for their first win in more than a year, and the grin on first-year coach Paul Johnson's face was so big, you could have seen it from Annapolis. Back home on the yard, Navy officials were arranging an impromptu pep rally to greet the team upon its return, which required getting 2,000 cadets out of bed at 4:30 a.m. With music blaring and blood pumping, the team returned to a hero's welcome.

When the Los Angeles Rams took Tracy Ham on the ninth round of the 1987 draft, they invited him to mini-camp, took a look at the 5-foot-10 quarterback, and decided they would try converting him into a running back. Ham said "no thanks" and scrambled off to the Canadian Football League.Ham's style fit the situation. With a football in hand, he's a "make something happen" kind of manipulator. Not a prototype of Randall Cunningham, the Philadelphia Eagles' superb runner-passer, but similar in that he can gain yardage with his arm and legs.

John Scott Rattan comes into the NCAA Division I golf championships off his best tournament of the season, and he and his University of Tennessee teammates qualified with the school's best regional finish. The Vols will be among 30 teams and six individuals in action when play begins this morning at Caves Valley Golf Club. The 72-hole event runs through Saturday with a single round each day. Rattan, from Gaithersburg, was an All-Southeastern Conference selection as a junior and came into his senior year with high expectations.

A YEAR AGO, Navy football coach Paul Johnson was going through one of the longest seasons in his life. Now, the season is going way too fast. In less than two full seasons, Johnson has given Navy (6-4) a new schedule, a new attitude, a possible bowl bid and a chance to win the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy. Navy will play host to Central Michigan (3-8) tomorrow, one of two remaining regular-season opponents. "Last year seemed like 100 years. This year has kind of just gone by," said Johnson, whose team finished 2-10 in 2002.
