COLLEGE PARK - Tom McMillen could hardly have been a more highly touted recruit. "The best high school player in America," read Sports Illustrated's headline in bold lettering on a 1970 cover depicting the 6-foot-11 Mansfield (Pa.) basketball star. It was a lot to live up to - high school athletes were not normally hyped the way they are today - but McMillen didn't disappoint Maryland or its coach, Lefty Driesell. He averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds in his Terps career. On Sunday, McMillen - a Rhodes Scholar who went on to play in the NBA and serve in the U.S. House of Representatives - will be among the new inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas City, Mo. "I'm really proud of him," said Driesell.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Tom McMillen, D-Md., today was to introduce legislation in the House calling for far-reaching reforms in college sports, including a requirement that the NCAA negotiate all football and basketball broadcast contracts.McMillen proposes giving university presidents unprecedented power over intercollegiate sports by creating a Board of Presidents to govern the NCAA. The group, containing no more than 33 elected members, would be able to unilaterally enact changes and reforms without taking the proposals to the NCAA convention.

Sometimes Maryland Rep. Tom McMillen must wish he were back in the National Basketball Association tossing up jump shots for the Washington Bullets instead of taking the flak he's received recently on Capitol Hill.First he was victimized by a furious zone-trap defense thrown up by other Maryland representatives during the drawn-out congressional redistricting dispute that left him bereft of his old district. Now he's been accused of an offensive foul for meeting with a federal savings and loan regulator on behalf of a foundering Annapolis thrift.

Although there is no evidence that Rep. Tom McMillen acted improperly when he met last year with federal regulators on behalf of a troubled Annapolis S&L, the mere fact that one of the thrift's directors reportedly was a business partner and major political supporter of the congressman conveys an impression of possible conflict of interest.McMillen, who apparently was aware at the time the meeting might be questioned -- he went so far as to secretly tape record his conversation with the federal official overseeing the thrift -- has denied any wrongdoing and demanded an inquiry to clear his name.

Steinberg, was stricken from the state's list of registered voters four months ago.The state constitution says that to be lieutenant governor, one must have been a registered voter in Maryland for five years preceding the general election.But Mr. McMillen has said his removal from the voters list by Anne Arundel County elections officials is a technicality that wouldn't stand in the way if he decided to run.Mr.

Members of the Towson baseball and men's soccer teams continue to wait to hear whether their programs will be disbanded by the university. President Maravene Loeschke sent a message to students and faculty Monday saying that a task force asked to study the decision had endorsed the recommendation to cut the sports. But she also said she would need more time to examine the issue before making her decision. She hopes to do so “as soon after winter break as possible.” Loeschke was not available for an interview this week, nor was Towson athletics director Mike Waddell.

Two significant local athletes will be rooting for different teams in tonight's pivotal Maryland-Florida State football game at Byrd Stadium. But both will be cheering on one particular player - one who might not even play. Tom McMillen and Samari Rolle will have their attention trained on Florida State safety Myron Rolle, as will much of the college football world. Myron Rolle is likely the first player ever whose status for a game was "questionable: Rhodes scholarship interview." The timing of this final step toward attaining this prestigious post-graduate honor means the Seminoles junior (in eligibility; he already has graduated)

1986: TIGHT RACE One of the closest congressional elections in recent state history took place in Anne Arundel County 19 years ago this week. And the votes took two weeks to count to make sure the result was right. Running for Maryland's 4th District seat was Tom McMillen, a Crofton Democrat and former Rhodes scholar and Washington Bullets player. His Republican opponent was Robert R. "Bobby" Neall, a popular member of the state's House of Delegates and lifelong resident of Anne Arundel County.

ONCE, everything Tom McMillen touched turned golden. McMillen made the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was still in high school, starred on the great University of Maryland basketball teams of the early 1970s and played on the U.S. Olympic team. He graduated from College Park, went to Oxford University as a Rhodes scholar, played 11 seasons in the National Basketball Association and served three consecutive terms in the House as the tallest (6 feet 11) congressman in history. But take the ball out of his hands, take him off Capitol Hill, put him in a business suit and McMillen looks more like a carnival barker than a man of accomplishment.

One day last week, as Congress was stalemated over budget negotiations, Rep. Tom McMillen slipped out of his Capitol Hill office to attend a campaign forum at a synagogue in Annapolis.McMillen, 38, has spent most of the waning weeks of the campaign to retain his congressional 4th District seat shuttling back and forth between Washington and his home district. Unlike most in Congress, he has been able to take advantage of being close to home during an election year.But this election year, McMillen may have some disadvantages, principally, his large campaign fund, his ties to savings and loan institutions and the national mood against incumbents.

It was after sitting through about a year and a half of numbing Knight Commission meetings that Tom McMillen began to get the idea that this august body, this blue-ribbon panel of experts, was taking on the character of the organization it was duly constituted to study and investigate.The Maryland congressman would close his eyes, listen and envision himself in a meeting of NCAA pooh-bahs instead of sitting amidst a gang of supposed reformers hellbent on straightening out college athletics.
