WASHINGTON - From the wide smile on her face in the Miami Sol locker room, you could tell that Katrina Colleton has finally learned how to exhale, in a basketball sense. Colleton, a Miami shooting guard, had just shot 2-for-12 in a less-than-artistic WNBA game with the Washington Mystics at the MCI Center recently. But one of those two baskets came in the midst of a late run that would help the expansion Sol bag a 57-55 upset over the Mystics. "It just wasn't my day. The shots weren't falling, but the coach took me out of the game and told me that if we were going to win, I had to be aggressive, regardless of whether the shots were falling.

Even as a 10-year-old, St. Frances senior LaKisha Walker preferred playing defense to scoring baskets. Her first Amateur Athletic Union coach, Wardell Selby, remembers that Walker was much different from her peers at that age. "She was one that would rather play defense and sacrifice offense. Most of them just want to get the ball and shoot. Kisha didn't want to shoot. She didn't look to shoot," said Selby, the Dunbar girls coach. Not even her mother, Harriett Wadley, a basketball player herself, could get Walker to take much interest in offense.

A man who initially told police that another man had shot him and an 11-year-old girl Saturday night after an argument outside a house in the Lakeland neighborhood has been charged with shooting the girl, city police said yesterday. Reginald Hays, 20, of the 2500 block of Marbourne Ave. was arrested Sunday after treatment at Maryland Shock Trauma Center for a minor head wound -- apparently from a bullet fragment of a shot he had fired, police said. The suspect told officers earlier that another man had stepped on the fingers of Kisha Chambers as she sat outside a house in the 2500 block of Marbourne Ave., and returned with a gun after an ensuing argument and fired into the house, police said.

Western center Dana Johnson, a high school All-America, will be playing her final game for the Doves in Sunday's Metro Classic against Seton Keough.

And when the seniors leave, the team will be all theirs.
