An overflow crowd packed Towson Catholic's tiny gym yesterday to watch No. 5 Archbishop Spalding upset the top-ranked Owls, 61-53, ending their 17-game winning streak. Spalding (14-8, 6-1 Baltimore Catholic League) also handed the Owls (20-5, 7-1) their first loss in the BCL. The two teams meet again tomorrow at 6 p.m. at Spalding. Yesterday's game matched the top two BCL teams of the past two years, and most fans didn't need a roster to identify the marquee players. But filing out of the gym after the game, many were asking, "Who was that No. 24 kid"?

For decades, scientists have looked for clues to the origin of life in out-of-the-way places: in ancient rock formations, in the heart of meteorites, in deep-ocean hydrothermal vents and even in the soil on Mars. But Robert Hazen thinks the secret to learning how life emerged from the primordial soup may be much closer - in the common rocks that litter his office at the Carnegie Institution in Washington. Hazen, a research scientist at Carnegie's Geophysical Laboratory, says the important thing is how common such rocks are - and how common they were when the first tiny organisms appeared on Earth.

WASHINGTON -- The fire aboard ValuJet Flight 592 last month apparently spread so quickly that only 1 minute and 26 seconds separated the cockpit crew's warning of "smoke in the cockpit, smoke in the cabin" and the last transmission.Tapes of the conversations between the doomed plane and air traffic controllers, released yesterday by the Federal Aviation Administration, also suggest that conditions on the burning DC-9 deteriorated so fast that Candalyn Kubeck and First Officer Richard Hazen quickly realized the aircraft might not make it back to Miami International Airport.

Fourteen seconds were on the clock and the Chesapeake Cougars were down, 69-67, as they huddled with their coach during a timeout."Let's go for the win and just get out of here," said Chesapeake coach John Spinnenweber. "Let's take a chance to win it."Ray Wagner, a 6-foot-3 junior forward, took the chance and his three-pointer from the top of the key with five seconds left lifted the visiting Cougars (7-5, 6-0) over host Severna Park, 70-69."Shawn Plews and Marvin Hazen double-screened for me, and I popped out," said Wagner, who led the Cougars with 24 points and six rebounds.

To say Kirk Hazen is surprised by how some folks are reacting to his theory that there is no incorrect way of speaking is an understatement. Hazen, a 30-year-old linguistics professor at West Virginia University, stumbled into the limelight last fall after writing an article on the university's West Virginia Dialects Project for the school's alumni magazine. Essentially, Hazen maintains that one cannot equate dialect with intelligence. His theory hit the news wires, and within a few weeks, he was fielding calls from reporters, and his supervisors were fielding complaints from people -- including some alumni -- demanding the professor's resignation.
