COLLEGE PARK -- James E. Lyons, Sr., whose nine-year presidential term at Bowie State University saw the predominantly black institution's enrollment double, said yesterday he is to become president of Jackson State University in Mississippi.Dr. Lyons said the position at the 6,500-student Jackson State, another historically black institution, will provide new opportunities."Just as I provided leadership [at Bowie] in the early '80's, I think it's an appropriate time for somebody else to come in and move the school from the '90s to the year 2000," Dr. Lyons said.

It was, Willie Richardson said, the perfect send-off. Against Pittsburgh in 1971, the Colts' veteran caught two touchdown passes within two minutes to break open a 34-21 victory at Memorial Stadium. They would be the final TDs in a nine-year career for Richardson, an All-Pro receiver. He'd been dealt to Pittsburgh in 1970 only to return, a year later, as a free agent - just in time to stomp the Steelers. Released at season's end, he retired, a happy man. "I never wanted to leave Baltimore in the first place," recalled Richardson, 73. "But to come back and have that kind of a game, in front of the Colts fans, was icing on the cake for me. " Nowadays, he is color commentator for football games at Jackson State, his alma mater.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- "Citizen Pain" put a hurting on Rhode Island.Brian Cardinal, a redshirt freshman forward for Purdue, became a cult hero in West Lafayette, Ind., this winter. The local newspaper conducted a contest to come up with a nickname for the knee-padded, floor-burned banger and "Citizen Pain" won out over "Rawhide" and "The Janitor."He's Kurt Rambis without the glasses, but the 6-foot-8 Cardinal produced on the perimeter when it counted yesterday at The Pyramid. His three-pointer with 16.7 seconds left in regulation forced overtime, which the Boilermakers dominated for an 83-76 win over Rhode Island.

JACKSON, Miss. -- "It's moles," Gloria McCray explains. Moles are why, when you walk among the graves at Willow Park Cemetery, your foot tends to sink an inch or two, every few steps, into the already marshy earth. Moles, repeatedly popping above ground to discard dirt from their tunnels, are what create the piles that dot the cemetery -- 3-inch-high mounds of yellow clay, their sides dappled with mud, like wet sand dribbled on a sand castle, hardened in the Mississippi sun. Thirty-three years ago in this all-black cemetery, as dignitaries such as Edmund Muskie, Birch Bayh and Averell Harriman and about 3,000 others looked on, Gloria McCray's brother, a high school senior and grocery store carhop, was buried directly across from his high school, two weeks before graduation.

HOLLANDALE, Miss. -- As a teenager in this Mississippi Delta town, she sat defiantly at all-white lunch spots and marched downtown with her classmates to take movie theater seats reserved for whites. As a college student at Jackson State, she listened in disbelief as police fired hundreds of bullets on campus - shots that thrust that historically black college into the epicenter of the civil rights movement. And as a newly minted lawyer, she forced Grenada, Miss., to remake its government, giving black residents a greater voice in running the city and prompting threats to her life.

COLLEGE PARK -- For the Maryland basketball team, the night started with the lowering of a banner from the Comcast Center rafters, commemorating last year's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship. Unfortunately for visiting Jackson State, the Terps didn't rest on their laurels. No. 15 Maryland had promised that the season opener would bring a more energetic and focused team, and, for the most part, it stayed true to its word in dominating an overmatched team that wilted in the face of the Terps' depth and full-court press.

COLLEGE PARK - An hour hadn't passed on their season-ending loss to Syracuse in the second round of the NCAA tournament in March, and the Maryland Terrapins were already thinking ahead. A season of tremendous highs and frustrating lows, salvaged in one stunning weekend when the Terps won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title, made the suddenly confident Terps hungrier for future success. "I can't wait for us to get back on the court together again," said guard D.J. Strawberry not long after the 72-70 loss to the Orangemen.

THEY HAVEN'T erected a statue in honor of Wilbert Lynn III since he won the Maryland state high school golf tournament. No one is beating down the door to his Northwest Baltimore home, and he doesn't have a posse. But ever so slightly, a heartbeat above imperceptible, there is a buzz about Lynn, who made up a six-stroke deficit on the back nine of the final round to win by a stroke and become the first city student to win the state title. A growing number of people are talking about the City College senior, even if they're not sure about what he's doing.
