Baltimore native Hasim Rahman's chance to become a two-time world heavyweight champion by defeating World Boxing Council title holder Vitali Klitschko will likely happen May 7 at New York's Madison Square Garden, promoter Don King and representatives of both fighters said yesterday. "I've talked to [Klitschko adviser] Shelly Finkel, and he told me that the Garden is available, so the fight will be there on May 7," King said from St. Louis, where he is promoting next weekend's welterweight title fight between undisputed champion Cory Spinks and Zab Judah.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Notre Dame point guard Eric Atkins was born in Connecticut and kept his allegiance to the Huskies after moving to Howard County when he was in grade school. But the games that used to draw his attention every year were those played between Maryland and Duke. “I was always watched those Duke-Maryland games, that was always the hardest ticket to get,” Atkins said Wednesday at the Atlantic Coast Conference's men's basketball media day.” I would always cherish those games.” Once he started playing AAU basketball, Atkins rooted for Duke whenever the Blue Devils played the Terps.

Tundra's favorite things are animal crackers, kissing, liver and her owners Ed, Jenna and Christopher Lipnickas, not necessarily in that order. If she suspects an animal cracker is nearby, a little frown of anxiety appears on her broad forehead, between her triangular velvet ears, and she gazes up with unblinking, warm, brown eyes and cocks her head.She gets a lot of crackers this way.Tundra is a show dog. Her formal name is American Canadian Champion Northstar's Polar Express, and she's dozing in the back of a van as it rolls through darkness from Dundalk to New York City.

COLLEGE PARK - Before playing at Madison Square Garden in the 1990 ECAC Holiday Festival, Walt Williams was considered an up-and-coming player for a down-and-out program. A junior, Williams had stayed at Maryland rather than transferring to another school without penalty after the Terps were put on a harsh probation by the NCAA. Ineligible to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament or the NCAA tournament that season because of the sanctions, the late December tournament at a place often called "The World's Most Famous Arena" became a showcase for the 6-foot-8 guard from Temple Hills known as "The Wizard" and a program under second-year coach Gary Williams.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon said he talked to his players at halftime of their National Invitation Tournament quarterfinal against Alabama about Frazier-Ali, Michael Jackson and other great performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Now, Maryland will get a chance to end its season with one of its own. The No. 2-seeded Terps weathered a late surge from the No. 1-seeded Crimson Tide on Tuesday night, winning 58-57 in Coleman Coliseum and earning a trip to Madison Square Garden for next week's NIT semifinals.

It's been a slow death, agonizing to watch for those of us who remember what the Big East represented when it started some 30 years ago. It's been confusing to follow the almost constant updates over the past 14 months since Syracuse and Pittsburgh announced they were leaving for the ACC. To say that league founder Dave Gavitt is turning over in his grave is an understatement. The Big East emerged on the college basketball scene making a lot of noise. It had big-name coaches, high-profile players and a commissioner in Gavitt who ascribed to the P.T. Barnum school of thought that any publicity was good publicity.

The scrutiny surrounding the Syracuse basketball team has been there for months, starting with the allegations of sexual abuse by former longtime assistant Bernie Fine and, more recently, with accusations that Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim used players for the past decade who had failed drug tests. Then, center Fab Melo was declared academically ineligible prior to the NCAA tournament. In the midst of the circus that followed the Orange to Pittsburgh last weekend and will accompany Boeheim's team to Boston later this week, the perplexing shooting slump of sophomore forward C.J. Fair has barely registered.

LCD Soundsystem called it quits Saturday, performing a bittersweet, three-and-a-half hour victory lap to a sold-out crowd at New York’s Madison Square Garden. I respect James Murphy and Co. for going out on their own terms, and not churning out more material because they feel like they “owe” it to the fans. There’s something beautiful about a band knowing when to exit and wanting to dance and get sweaty at its funeral. (The band asked anyone attending the last show to wear black and/or white.)

Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski, a football player by trade and a boxer at heart, is taking advantage of the looming NFL lockout by getting back into the boxing ring. Zbikowski will fight on the undercard of a pro boxing event at the MGM Grand casino in Las Vegas next Saturday. Under normal circumstances, this sort of thing wouldn't fly with the Ravens. But Zbikowski hasn't signed his restricted tender, so there is no contract for him to violate. And hey, if the NFL won't let him play football, then why shouldn't he be allowed to compete and make some extra dough in boxing in the event of a lockout?
