Solomon Halberstam, 92, the grand rabbi who led the Bobov sect of Orthodox Hasidic Jews out of Europe after World War II and oversaw its rebirth, gaining tens of thousands of followers, died yesterday in New York. Thousands of mourners had started gathering after Mr. Halberstam was taken to a hospital late Tuesday with internal bleeding. Mr. Halberstam, a descendant of one of the first Hasidic leaders in Europe, survived the purge of Jews by the Nazis, along with his son, Naftali. The rest of his family was killed, including his father, his youngest brother and three brothers-in-law.

For just the fourth time in 23 seasons, Maryland will enter the Atlantic Coast Conference men's tournament with a higher seeding than Duke. The Terps posted a better road record, better home record, better conference record and better overall record than their conference rival this season. With that in mind, it seems clear to me that entering tomorrow's opening-round games, Maryland is a better team playing better basketball. But not everyone is as convinced. When the latest Associated Press men's poll was released Monday, the Terps were ranked No. 17, just four spots ahead of the No. 21 Blue Devils.

Henson decides to call it quits Frail but smiling, New Mexico State coach Lou Henson pulled himself up from his wheelchair, his focus no longer on winning basketball games, but merely to walk again. Henson, who began his coaching career at Las Cruces (N.M.) High School in 1957, retired yesterday, 21 wins shy of becoming only the fifth coach in Division I history to win 800 games. The coach known for his "Lou Do" hairstyle, his sometimes fiery courtside manner and ability to consistently turn out winning teams found his ongoing health problems too tough an opponent.
