Stephen Strasburg says he's not feeling snubbed. The Washington Nationals rookie pitcher said Tuesday that he understands why he was left off the National League All-Star team and that he isn't ready for the midsummer classic. "You look at the guys who are going to the All-Star Game and the years that they've had — and they've done that since Opening Day," Strasburg said in his first comments since the selections were announced Sunday. "I haven't been here since Opening Day. They deserve it. Hopefully, someday I'll deserve it, too."

Less than a month after being named Maryland's director of basketball operations, Cliff Warren was promoted Tuesday to an assistant coach position. Warren, 46, replaces Scott Spinelli, who left last month for a similar position at Boston College. To fill the basketball operation job, Maryland hired Nima Omidvar, who spent the past three seasons as the video coordinator at North Carolina State. The addition of Warren gives Mark Turgeon the most experienced assistant he has ever had in his 16-year head coaching career.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The NCAA attacked the cost-containment issue yesterday by passing tighter limits on the number of coaches a member school can employ, but many opponents warned the measures could keep younger people out of the profession.By Aug. 1, 1992, Division I-A football coaches will be able to have eight full-time assistant coaches and four "restricted-earnings" coaches, a new umbrella term used to describe part-time, volunteer and graduate assistant coaches. Some universities will have to release as many as three assistants by Aug. 1, 1992, and University of Maryland athletic director Andy Geiger said the Terps are one over the new limit.

"He can play outside - he's shooting 52 percent on 2s and right around 41 percent on 3s. He's a very good free-throw shooter.

Like many of his former Penn State football teammates, Rich Rosa remained close with his coach, Joe Paterno, as well as with defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, long after he graduated. Rosa spent a season on Paterno's staff as a graduate assistant and several more years helping Sandusky with his Second Mile program that worked with underprivileged and at-risk children. With last week's arrest of Sandusky on 40 charges of sexual abuse of minors, and revelations that Paterno was made aware at least one incident but never called police, the emotions Rosa feels range from sadness for the victims to anger for the men - Paterno in particular - that he held in such high regard.

Jake Layman's adjustment to college life in general at Maryland and basketball in particular was a bit more difficult than the other three freshmen who were part of second-year coach Mark Turgeon's first recruiting class. That he admittedly fell behind in his classwork - to the point where Turgeon benched him for the first half of a recent game for failing to turn in a paper - contributed to the issues he had on the court, the 6-8 forward said Monday. “I think me getting behind in school, which was a good learning experience for me the first semester, it turned into me not doing well on the court, too,” Layman said after practice at Comcast Center.

There was a moment in last Monday's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament final against Fairfield when Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos stared for several seconds toward the court during a television timeout, holding his two index fingers close together between his eyes and nose. Obviously angry, Patsos also seemed frozen, fixed on either a call he didn't like from one of the referees or a lapse from one of his players. Assistant coach Luke D'Alessio brought Patsos back to the huddle - and back to the moment.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland fans no longer get to shout out Rob Ehsan's name in pregame introductions as they once did, extending the first syllable so it came out "EEEEE-SAHN. " The 29-year-old was a popular assistant coach and important recruiter for three seasons under Gary Williams, and a graduate assistant and recruiting aide here before that. Now a Virginia Tech assistant, the boyish-looking Ehsan returns to Comcast Center Saturday for his first Hokies- Terps game since Williams retired in May. "I hope Comcast lets him have it," joked Maryland point guard Pe'Shon Howard, who said he planned to engage Ehsan in "talking trash.
