EMMITSBURG -- For the second time in three weeks, LaBradford Smith, the Washington Bullets' No. 1 draft choice from Louisville, has agreed to contract terms. Only this time, it should be official, including a new weight clause imposed by general manager John Nash, who said he will complete the deal tomorrow.The muscular 6-foot-3 guard originally signed a four-year deal with the Bullets worth $3.36 million on Sept. 19. But this agreement was voided by Nash when he discovered that Smith had suffered an ankle injury in a Houston pickup game and was not informed by the rookie's agents, attorney James Bryant of Oklahoma City and Tony Dott of Houston.

The first words out of BayRunners coach Terry Truax's mouth in his post-game news conference were, "Wow, what a way to end it." That was followed by the type of crooked smile that follows a facetious remark because he knew the BayRunners did nothing to wow the 6,120 fans at Baltimore Arena. So the 98-86 season-ending loss to the Trenton Stars was like the inaugural game: a disappointing defeat at home to a team that is going where the BayRunners are not -- to the International Basketball League playoffs.

SAN DIEGO -- In the past, the San Diego Stingrays have been the perfect get-well opponent for the BayRunners. That trend ended last night as the Stingrays held off Baltimore, 107-99, in front of 1,104 fans at the Sports Arena. Baltimore's losing streak reached five, and the BayRunners continued winless on the road since a victory here last month. "San Diego didn't play like an 8-32 team tonight," Baltimore coach Terry Truax said. "Obviously, we showed that we can't take any team for granted."

Washington Bullets coach Wes Unseld held a private workout in San Antonio yesterday morning to determine whether rookie guard LaBradford Smith was ready to come off the injured list.But Smith was still favoring the left ankle that he first sprained in a pickup game in Houston in late September before he was due to report to training camp.Because the injury has taken so long to respond to rest and therapy, the Bullets will have their No. 1 draft choice examined today by Rudy Ellis, the team doctor at the University of Louisville, which Smith attended.

RICHMOND, Va. -- Take away the second quarter and the BayRunners played fairly well last night against the Richmond Rhythm. The BayRunners' poor performance in the second quarter, though, was enough to ensure Richmond a 95-80 victory before 1,104 at Richmond Coliseum. The BayRunners hit three of 13 field-goal tries in the second period and committed 10 turnovers en route to falling to the team that is chasing them for the final playoff spot in the International Basketball League's East Conference.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. Va. -- If there was any question about the potential of the Washington Bullets' shooting guards last season, look no further than a pair of 37-point efforts from that position last season.In December, Rex Chapman did little wrong in scoring 37 points against Cleveland. And in March, LaBradford Smith scored a career-high 37 points against the Chicago Bulls at the expense of an embarrassed Michael Jordan.But what coach Wes Unseld got in flashes, he didn't get in season-long consistency from Chapman and Smith at a position vital to a team's success.

LANDOVER -- Embarrassed by having second-year guard LaBradford Smith burn him for 37 points the previous night in Chicago, Michael Jordan turned last night's rematch with Smith and the Washington Bullets at the Capital Centre into a personal vendetta.Matching his most electrifying performances, the Bulls superstar hit his first eight shots on the way to scoring 36 points in the first half. He added 13 more in the third quarter and then retired for the night as the Bulls breezed to a 126-101 victory before a sellout crowd of 18,756.
