ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.  - While growing up in San Diego, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones idolized Tony Gwynn as a player, then later gained greater admiration for him after getting to know the Padres Hall of Famer as a person. So the news of Gwynn's death Monday at age 54, after a four-year battle with cancer, hit Jones especially hard. "I've known the man for most of my adult life, so it's tough when someone passes like that, especially the impact he'd had on not just myself, but on countless major leaguers, and just people in general, in the San Diego community," Jones said.

When it comes to college athletics, it's time to speak truth to evil. You might think evil is too strong a word for what's going on in college athletics, but consider how Webster's Dictionary defines evil: morally reprehensible; causing harm; offensive. That pretty much sums up the state of big-time college sports today. The inane move of Maryland and Rutgers to the Big Ten is simply the latest example. Here's the current reality of college sports: •NCAA Division I sports - especially at Football Bowl Subdivision schools - has nothing to do with education.

The Cinderella team of this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament hails from Florida, but its coaches have Maryland roots. Andy Enfield set scoring records at Johns Hopkins before he became head coach at Florida Gulf Coast, the darling of the tournament. His assistant, Kevin "Stink" Norris, grew up in East Baltimore and starred at Lake Clifton. Together, they've put a local face on an upstart team that breaks new ground with every win. The Eagles are the first 15 t h seed in tourney history to make the Sweet 16, and an upset of No. 3 Florida on Friday night would carry Florida Gulf Coast further still.

Jene Morris scored 32 points as San Diego State (22-10) pulled off a first-round upset for the second straight year. The Aztecs were a No. 10 seed when they beat DePaul last year.

Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie sees Jasmine Thomas as someone who is never satisfied. Thanks to the junior guard, the Blue Devils now stand a win away from their first Final Four since 2006. Thomas matched her career-high with 29 points and sprinkled her stat line with a little bit of everything, and second-seeded Duke ended No. 11 seed San Diego State's surprising NCAA tournament run with a 66-58 victory Saturday to reach the regional final. "She's just a very hungry player, someone who loves to get out there and dictate and on both sides of the ball," McCallie said.

Steve Fisher is the name brand for San Diego State basketball, the professorial former coach of Michigan and the "Fab Five. " With white hair and dark-framed glasses, he's what your grandpa would look like if he taught yoga and stuck to a high-fiber diet. Kawhi Leonard is the complete-player star, a 6-foot-7 sophomore averaging a double-double at 15 points and 10 rebounds per game. Leonard plays with a big heart and even bigger hands. A reporter at the Tucson regional asked Leonard at a news conference if he could display one of his gargantuan mitts.

Navy coach Charlie Weatherbie apparently was not blowing smoke when he rated San Diego State as second only to Notre Dame as a formidable opponent on the football schedule this season.The Aztecs won their home opener on Friday, 45-31, but it was their big-play capability against the Midshipmen's secondary that caused Weatherbie the most concern in preparing for Rutgers in Annapolis on Saturday night.First-time starter Kevin McKechnie, a fifth-year senior, burned the Mids for 371 yards on only 16 completions for an average of 23 yards a catch.

The Navy football team will be getting an early start on its 1997 schedule -- real early.Because of scheduling conflicts with the San Diego Padres, San Diego State was forced to play its home opener against the Midshipmen at Qualcomm Stadium on Friday, Sept. 5, at 11: 30 a.m. PDT"I think that favors us," Navy coach Charlie Weatherbie said. "My guys are used to getting up early in the morning for classes."In fact, Weatherbie held a number of his preseason practices at 5: 30 a.m. to accommodate players taking summer courses.

Alexis Rack was perfect in eight trips to the foul line down the stretch, and 11th seed Mississippi State (23-9) was 21-for-22 as a team in beating No. 6 seed Texas (21-12), 71-63, yesterday in the first round of the NCAA tournament's Berkeley Regional in Columbus, Ohio. "We've been doing this all year," said Rack, who had 20 points for her 13th consecutive game in double figures. "We shoot 100 free throws in practice. I felt like I was at practice. I felt comfortable and just focused."
