After adamant lobbying by several athletic directors in the Atlantic Coast Conference, including Maryland's Debbie Yow, the state of North Carolina's stranglehold on the ACC men's basketball tournament finally will be loosened over the next 10 years.

Not every high school student was happy about yesterday's snowstorm. "Usually, I would be, but not today," said Hammond sophomore Melissa Workman. That's because Workman and her teammates on the girls varsity basketball team were scheduled to play St. John's in the opening game yesterday of the DeMatha Invitational at MCI Center in Washington. When the school system closed yesterday, Hammond's trip was canceled. "I really wanted to play at the MCI Center," said Workman, who had a career-high 27 points earlier this week against Atholton.

When you see the Rolling Stones for as much as $300 per ticket, you know you're going to hear many of their hit songs. The same is true for other high-ticket acts such as U2, Rod Stewart, the Eagles and Bette Midler. But not Madonna. The Material Girl, at the MCI Center in Washington tonight and tomorrow night, is smashing assumptions once again. She has decided that fans paying as much as $245 for her arena shows will get just a smattering of old hits (three, in fact) while she instead features songs from her last two techno-spiced albums, which have kept her as au courant as any 40-some- thing can be. She has thrown out the rule book.

WASHINGTON - It was only four minutes, and it was only a preseason game against the New Jersey Nets, but it seemed to crystallize what all the hype has been about and why all the hope is revolving around Michael Jordan and the Washington Wizards this season. It took those four minutes for Jordan to show why he was once, and still might be, the best player in the game. It came in the course of a 102-95 defeat to the Nets, but Jordan demonstrated that he remains a dominating force at age 38. In 33 minutes, Jordan scored a game-high 41 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists.

WASHINGTON -- In a move that could cost the franchise more than $20 million and an untold amount of prestige, the Washington Wizards announced yesterday that Michael Jordan will not return as president of basketball operations. Jordan, who played for the Wizards for two seasons after 1 1/2 years as head of basketball operations, met briefly yesterday morning at MCI Center with majority owner Abe Pollin, Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, who heads the investment group through which Jordan joined the Wizards' organization in January 2000, and attorneys for both sides.
