Energy and youthful enthusiasm were added to the Navy men's basketball program yesterday when Billy Lange was named the academy's 19th head coach. Lange, 32, a member of the Villanova coaching staff the past three years, replaces veteran Don DeVoe, who resigned early last month after 12 seasons. "I really feel as though the program needs passion right now," said athletic director Chet Gladchuk in introducing Lange. "This is a young guy whose time has come." The Midshipmen finished with a 5-23 record this season, including an overtime loss to Patriot League champion Lehigh in the conference tournament.

WASHINGTON -- Convicted murderers do not have a constitutional right to be told all the damaging evidence that prosecutors will use to try to persuade a jury to impose a death sentence, a split Supreme Court ruled yesterday.Because no such right exists, the court said in the case of a Virginia inmate, the prisoner cannot ask a federal court to create one as a way of challenging his sentence.Dividing 5-4, the court said an accused person's right at a sentencing hearing to contest a prosecution request for the death penalty does not include "a right to notice of the evidence which the state plans to use."

It might not have looked like it, but there was a war going on yesterday between midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy and the "Red Team" at the nearby National Security Agency at Fort Meade. The Red Team -- a group of NSA hackers tasked with breaking into U.S. government and military information systems to expose vulnerabilities -- was "attacking" servers set up by computer science and information technology majors at the Annapolis military college. The midshipmen, in turn, were trying to defend their network.

A MEMORABLE PLACE Launching a sea career Ben Lyons, Special to the Sun For our 9:15 p.m. sailing, we warmed up the radar at 8 and tested the engine room telegraphs at 8:45. We ran through the rest of the pre-departure checklist: The radios were set properly, the ship's whistle was tested, and charts were laid out. At 9:12 p.m. the band on the pier started playing, and three minutes later, the propellers were slowly reversing as a helicopter hovered overhead, sprinkling flowers on the passengers.
