COLLEGE PARK - As they continue to prepare to defend their NCAA men's basketball championship, the Maryland Terrapins look like two teams. There is the core of seniors who have tasted so much success, followed by a line of youngsters learning how to play the game at a high level. Last night in the Terps' exhibition opener, the old Maryland hands showed the kids how it's done. In the team's first game at the new Comcast Center, against a Harlem Globetrotters squad that averages 27 years of age and features several former NBA players and some exceptionally large post men, Maryland answered some questions that coach Gary Williams has been pondering.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - This was a prize that Magic Johnson and Larry Bird could share. Johnson was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame last night, reunited with his former rival in a ceremony that evoked tears for the late Drazen Petrovic and laughs for the antics of the Harlem Globetrotters before the star of showtime stole the show. "You allowed me for 12 or 13 years to be a little boy, to play the game I love, to try to be the best player I could be, to try to win games, and to also turn the fans on," Johnson told commissioner David Stern between standing ovations.

The speech was one that Harlem Globetrotters owner and general manager Mannie Jackson hadn't used very often. In fact, it had been five years. "You saw history tonight," Jackson said after defending national champion Michigan State beat his barnstorming basketball team, 72-68, Monday night to end its 1,270-game winning streak. "How many people were here? 20,000? In 10 years there will be 10 million who said they saw this game. People don't expect us to lose." Now people will. The Globetrotters are celebrating their 75th year by trying something new - or rather something from their distant past.

After finishing their college basketball careers at the University of Maryland in 1996, Exree Hipp and Johnny Rhodes took their hoop dreams to faraway places. Hipp went to Brazil, Rhodes to Taiwan and Italy. They continue to travel the world, and, as they were in College Park, they are teammates. Tonight will be a homecoming of sorts for the two former Terrapins when their current team, the Harlem Globetrotters, makes a visit to the Towson Center. "It's like being in college for us," Hipp said earlier this week by telephone from Wheeling, W. Va. Except they didn't play nearly 200 games a year at Maryland.

Golf It's official: Woods wins Vardon Trophy, casts eye on Olympics Tiger Woods got his hands on something he hasn't won and probably never will. Holding a golf clinic at London's Hyde Park yesterday, Woods ran into British Olympic rowing champions Steven Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent. "This is one thing that I've got that Tiger doesn't," Pinsent said as he pulled from his pocket his gold medal from the Sydney Games.

Three years ago, he was a 26-year-old college dropout cleaning carpets at the Social Security complex in Woodlawn. There, toiling away in the wee hours, Jonte Hall vowed to give basketball one last shot. The Harlem Globetrotters are glad he did. On Saturday, Hall will perform with the 'Trotters, the game's celebrated barnstormers, at the Verizon Center in Washington (1 p.m.). Billed as "Too Tall" Hall for his height (5-foot-2), he's the smallest player ever to suit up for the Globetrotters in their 86-year history.

Jeremy Guthrie spends the baseball season in Maryland and the off-season in Utah, but in between, the 31-year-old Orioles starting pitcher is a citizen of the world. More than a decade ago, Guthrie went on a Mormon mission to Spain, staying nearly two years. Although he's added many stamps to his passport since then, the country and its people have never been far from his heart. When he visits, he stays with friends or even in one of Spain's famed paradors — monasteries, castles, convents or other historic landmarks that have been transformed into luxury hotels.

Curly Neal was a Harlem Globetrotter when that really meant something - in the days when he and Meadowlark Lemon and their teammates were all over the television dial, making moves on the basketball court that seemed just short of superhuman while, simultaneously, living up to their reputation as the Clown Princes of Basketball. Nobody played the game better, or with more enthusiasm. Even people who didn't know a jump shot from an airball knew the Globetrotters, and loved watching them play.

Mary Walton is an admitted anglophile. Her five-story, red-brick Bolton Hill residence reflects the compatible duality of her life: service to God and an obsession with anything English. Walton greets guests at the double-door entrance of her restored 1880 townhouse. Two miniature poodles, Maggie and Clark, stand dutifully beside her. Immediately noticeable from the threshold is the house's width, a mere 18 feet. The overall length is 51 feet. A hall and staircase occupy the north side of the home, while pocket doors open onto a living room and dining room on the south side.
