Item: Washington is abuzz with the shocking defeat of House majority Leader Eric Cantor in a Republican primary. David Brat, a tea party-inspired college professor with little money but plenty of energy, pulled off the historic upset. Most of the mainstream media coverage focused on Mr. Cantor's support (albeit tepid) for a set of immigration reform principles that some on the right interpreted as "amnesty" - and that such support was the primary cause of his loss at the hands of an unknown, underfunded candidate.

CLEVELAND - Bill Walton recalled a high school game he played in more than 30 years ago in San Diego. It received lots of hype and was televised locally. After all, Walton was considered the best high school basketball player in the country. "But it wasn't anything like this," Walton said, shaking his head and looking around the Cleveland Convocation Center. Then again, as good as Walton was back then, he wasn't LeBron James. James, the 17-year-old phenom from nearby Akron, was the reason Walton asked to work for ESPN2 during last night's nationally televised game between St. Vincent-St.

Not long ago, talk about values was mainly left to politicians on the far right and to fundamentalist Christians, most of whom were dismissed as zealots and demagogues. Now that the issue of values is coming into the mainstream, there seems no shortage of examples illustrating a need to retrieve the Golden Rule.The Tonya Harding case, fascinating potboiler that it is, is all the more interesting for the tug-of-war it represents between crass commercialism and good sportsmanship, not to mention plain right and wrong.

1. Aberdeen Coach: Amber Milnes Last season: 25-3, ranked No. 2 Postseason: Class 3A state champion Outlook: Versatile All-Metro sophomore Stephanie Jones leads the way as the two-time defending state champs bring back three starters - none of whom is a senior. After going a combined 52-4 the previous two years with their only losses to nationally ranked opponents, the Eagles should continue their reign if they can replace the senior leadership that graduated and get solid minutes from the bench.

He was supposed to be in Florida right now, prepping with his teammates for a weekend basketball showcase. Instead, the team flew south Thursday afternoon without their 6-foot 5-inch forward, who was a "beast" on the court, his brother said.

Basketball was his life. Harvell, 18, was a city basketball standout.
