COLLEGE PARK -- The University of Maryland basketball team teetered on the edge of disappointment several times against Georgia Tech last night at sold-out Cole Field House. Teetered, but never fell.It took two missed free throws by Yellow Jackets reserve Brian Domalik, a foul shot by Evers Burns and a three-point air ball by Kenny Anderson for the Terps to hold on for a 96-93 upset.It also took 33 points by Matt Roe, whose career-high performance helped Maryland (13-10, 3-7) break a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference losing streak and beat Georgia Tech (13-9, 5-6)

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Say what you will about Tiger Woods, but he knows how to win. The victories just arrive in different ways. Sometimes, he blows to victory with fury, sometimes he squirms his way to the top and other times victory falls in his lap. Yesterday at the Buick Invitational, Woods' 47th PGA Tour tournament title was gift-wrapped and specially delivered, when Jose Maria Olazabal missed a 4-foot putt for par on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff...

The writer of this course review is a Columbia resident and frequent golfer who has played most courses in Central Maryland. Almost daily, power carts are lined up near the pro shop with windshield tags bearing golfers' names and hole assignments for an outing. That's the only way most of us can play golf at Turf Valley Resort. Because it's private, play officially is limited to members and hotel guests. But Turf Valley - its main entry off U.S. 40 on the west end of Ellicott City - was host to about 200 outings last year for charities and other causes.

BETHESDA -- King. A rather appropriate name for a coronation wouldn't you say?That's what the Mazda LPGA Championship turned out to be over 72 holes and the last four days, the crowning of Betsy King, possessor of superlative strength or efficacy on the women's tour.It was on the ninth hole yesterday and after bringing the tight and picturesque Bethesda Country Club and the field to their knees that King pushed her second shot into the rough siding the green."When I got up and down [for par]

Fifty yards to my left three mourning doves cut the southeast corner of the Deale area cornfield on a path that would take them right over Cliff Perry's shooting stool. When the trio got to within range of Perry's 20-gauge over-under Ruger, I watched him spring to his feet and bring the shotgun to his shoulder in a single movement.At the instant he pulled the gun's trigger, the lead dove dipped its left wing and dropped the flight path 10 feet or more. The Crofton-area sportsman's seven-eighths of an ounce of No. 7 1/2 shot blew a hole in the Thanksgiving morning sky.At the same moment the lead dove hit the dive button, the left bird hit the afterburners and in the blink of an eye rocketed straight up some 20 feet.

Gov. Parris N. Glendening, a passenger aboard the Coast Guard cutter Northland, had to be a fast learner yesterdaybefore he could fire the Whitbread starting gun."I'm going to get the weapons guy up there to show him how to do it," said Cmdr. Beverly Kelley, the ship's top officer, as she stood in the receiving line to greet the governor and other dignitaries. "He's going to have to get it real quick."And he did, receiving his certification -- an official letter signed by him and by Kelley and required for anyone who does a job on board -- just moments before he joined four costumed "Coasties" on the forward deck.

MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- It was about an hour before the leaders began yesterday's third round of the U.S. Open and Darren Clarke's agent, Chubby Chandler, stood on the edge of the driving range at Winged Foot Golf Club, swinging a wooden stick. What he should have done was take that stick over to the first hole and drive it into the heart of the green. Maybe that would have killed the beast before it gobbled up any more golfers. At this point, Winged Foot is kicking tail. Everybody knows that the U.S. Open is the toughest golf tournament in the world, but things are getting out of hand here at this leafy layout in an otherwise serene section of the Hudson River Valley.

BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- Dave Stockton, more accustomed to having to come from behind during final rounds, proved he could play from the front when he survived a valiant charge by Hale Irwin to win the 17th U.S. Senior Open championship yesterday at Canterbury Golf Club.Stockton began the day with a seven-shot lead on Bob Charles and an eight-shot lead on four others, including Irwin. While Stockton was in the process of running off what would become 17 straight pars, Irwin was making the only serious run at the leader with a barrage of seven birdies.

Editor's note: Marcus is a star basketball player on his school team, but he's terrible at foul shots. His sister Bree drives him to practice at night in the school gym where his father is principal. Despite his efforts, Marcus isn't getting any better... until Mr. Dunn the custodian steps in. "Hi, Mr. Dunn," Marcus said as the tall, thin man pulled open the heavy metal door. Mr. Dunn smiled. "You two come in quick," he said. "Your dad doesn't want me heating the outside." Marcus and Bree stepped into the dark hallway.
