CHICAGO -- The formal announcement yesterday of the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team was, in large part, a foregone conclusion.After all, USA Basketball, the body that organizes this country's international efforts, had assembled an 11-member squad that had gone undefeated in a 51-game tour against collegiate and international competition. Any derivation from that list would have been a shock.The only thing left to be decided was the identity of the last team member, and although center Venus Lacy had been playing with the team for the past three weeks, she was still thrilled to get the nod at a team dinner Saturday night.

WASHINGTON -- There are days, no doubt, when it isn't such a good thing to be Rebecca Lobo.Like, for instance, on the days when you can't find a pair of dress shoes in your size, or when some guy scoops up your hair after a session at the salon, or when you'd like just a couple more moments of privacy with your family and friends in an airport, and someone recognizes you as that Rebecca Lobo.But when you've been a guest on David Letterman's late night talk show, not to mention the most recognized women's basketball player on the planet and a member of the most talented collection of women's players ever assembled, there are no such things as private moments.

Some new books prove sports can be poetry in motion (on a scale of four stars):Kids with hoop dreams should take a shot at "Fast Breaks" ($3.50 paperback, Scholastic), a slam-dunk new b-ball series. We devoured "WNBA Superstars" by Molly Jackel and Joe Layden, which featured nine superstars, from favorites Lisa Leslie and Rebecca Lobo to women-you-oughta-know Haixia Zheng and Michele Timms. We especially liked the part where Sheryl Swoopes swooped down on MJ in a mean game of one-on-one and nailed him with a foul.
