Events in Jerusalem and the West Bank over the past several weeks add an unsought urgency to James Longley's documentary Gaza Strip that makes it required viewing for anyone looking to understand not the whys behind the Middle East turmoil, but the hows. Longley, filming in Gaza during spring 2001, watches as Palestinians living in Gaza City and the Khan Younis refugee camp go about the business of living in a world where machine-gun fire is normal background noise and the number of friends you've buried may be greater than the number who are still around.

South River coach Scott Baker has been trying to convince Jack Longley all season that cross country races aren't won in the first mile.After all, it's who's where at the finish line that counts the most.That message finally sank in at yesterday's Anne Arundel County Championships.Longley, who has been known to set some grueling paces early on, took the lead with a little over a half-mile left and went on to win the county title in 16 minutes, 44 seconds."I haven't had the patience all year and my coach kept telling me not to wear myself out too early and to wait before making my move and today I was patient and it paid off," said Longley.

Rare is the college player who ignores the call of the NBA to remain at the hallowed halls of higher learning. Even more rare is the player who lives not to regret it.Luc Longley, New Mexico's 7-foot-2 senior giant from Down Under, is that double rarity: the man who said no to the pros and found he made the right choice.Longley, who leads the 14th-seeded Lobos into tomorrow's East Regional first-round game in the NCAA tournament at Cole Field House, was highly coveted after his junior year by NBA scouts who liked his height and his passing ability.

COLLEGE PARK -- The University of New Mexico shot nearly 39 percent from the field. Oklahoma State shot about 33. There were a combined 35 turnovers and 38 fouls.Maybe it was the early-afternoon starting time, but it didn't seem like a National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament game.Oklahoma State, using the strong inside play of forward Byron Houston (21 points) and a solid defensive effort, defeated New Mexico, 67-54, in the first round of the East Regional at Cole Field House yesterday.

In the opening two rounds of the playoffs, the Chicago Bulls played just good enough to win. And that, frankly, disturbs Bulls guard Michael Jordan."That's not going to carry us far into the next round," Jordan said. "As you get deeper into the playoffs, that's a dangerous way to approach teams. We have got play to our level and, so far, we haven't been able to do that."And the defending NBA champion Bulls know that they will have to play at a higher level starting this afternoon, when they open the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals series against the Indiana Pacers.

BOWIE -- One day he appeared worried, said he could barely raise his arm and seemed genuinely concerned about his sore left shoulder. But yesterday, it was back to business as usual for Washington Bullets forward Chris Webber.Webber was sprinting up and down the floor and banging for position during practice yesterday, and later played in the team's intra-squad scrimmage just hours after being examined. X-rays on Webber's shoulder were negative, and the concerns of the 6-foot-10 forward who missed 19 games after separating the same shoulder last season were put to rest.
