DALLAS -- It was yet another challenge for Scott Skiles, this time facing the point guard of the future in Dallas Mavericks rookie Jason Kidd. But the Washington Bullets' 30-year-old veteran showed in the end he still has enough skills to steal the show.Skiles hit an off-balance jumper with 3.1 seconds left in regulation to tie last night's game at 113, then hit two big free throws with 11.4 seconds left in overtime to help Washington to a 124-121 win at Reunion Arena last night.Chris Webber scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and six players scored in double figures as the Bullets (6-8)

Bucks coach Scott Skiles was hospitalized with an irregular heartbeat shortly before the team's game against the Suns on Monday night. Skiles, who spoke to the media before the game and showed no signs of illness, was hospitalized for precautionary purposes, a team spokesman said. Jim Boylan coached the Bucks in Skiles' absence. Boylan coached the Bulls on an interim basis after Skiles was fired in 2008. •Ex-NBA star Jayson Williams , his personal life in shambles, took responsibility for accidentally shooting his limousine driver to death eight years ago by pleading guilty to assault and agreeing to serve at least 18 months in prison.

LANDOVER -- When Scott Skiles came to the Washington Bullets it gave the team something it hadn't had in years -- a legitimate playmaker. But Skiles' presence in Washington might be short-term.Playing in his ninth NBA season, Skiles indicated last night that this might be his final year in the league."I've played a long time, I'm going on 600 NBA games," he said. "I'm just not sure what I want to do."Five of those years came in Orlando, where Skiles established himself as a player in this league and helped the Magic through the early stages of expansion.

There won't be an incumbent running for Anne Arundel County executive in next November's elections, but Roy Skiles figures this would not be a great week to announce his candidacy, if he were so inclined. Skiles is the county's assistant superintendent of school administrative services and the point man on the decision to push up start times on county football games for the rest of the season. Skiles' phone has been ringing all week, and most of the callers have not been inviting him to tea, but rather criticizing him for what they believe is an overreaction to last Friday's shooting at a game at Annapolis High.

The Washington Bullets obtained Scott Skiles, a 1996 first-round draft pick and future considerations yesterday from the Orlando Magic, who needed to open a salary spot for free agent Horace Grant. The Bullets only needed to give up a 1996 second-round pick and future considerations to the Magic in return."It is very unusual," Bullets general manager John Nash said. "We definitely benefited from Orlando's unique situation."Skiles, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound point guard, was the last Magic player remaining from the original expansion draft of 1989.

As soon as the rebound dropped into the hands of Don MacLean, Calbert Cheaney was off and running. He knew the outlet pass would wind up in the hands of point guard Scott Skiles, and Cheaney knew his hustle soon would be rewarded."

LANDOVER -- The struggling Bullets are considering a trade that would send veteran point guard Scott Skiles to the New York Knicks for guard Greg Anthony and forward Anthony Bonner, a Washington team source said yesterday.Skiles, 30, was acquired by the Bullets this year to replace playmaker Michael Adams, who was traded to the Charlotte Hornets for two second-round picks.Skiles is a more consistent outside shooter than Anthony, who shot 39 percent from the field last season. But Anthony, 27, is much quicker and plays aggressive defense.

With the grueling pace of the NBA, playing back-to-back games can be a difficult task at age 30.Compounding that task for Washington Bullets point guard Scott Skiles was a sore back suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. It had many wondering just how much he could give his team last night against the Philadelphia 76ers.What Skiles gave was his best performance of the season. Playing against Sixers point guard Dana Barros, who is posting numbers worthy of all-star consideration, Skiles scored a season-high 28 points and recorded 10 assists as the Bullets defeated the Sixers, 102-98, before a sellout crowd of 12,756 at Baltimore Arena.

On a certain level, Scott Skiles knew what he was getting into when he took over as Chicago Bulls coach after Bill Cartwright was fired in late November. The Bulls, as constituted, are a weird amalgam of the very young (Tyson Chandler and Eddy Curry) and the graying before your eyes (Scottie Pippen and Antonio Davis). But Skiles may not have realized just how difficult it will be to change the culture of losing that has festered around the United Center in the six seasons since the Bulls last raised a championship banner.

Dulaney senior goalie Alisa Jordan casually called it a busy afternoon. "And late in the game, it got really hectic," she said.Her Lions were holding a one-goal lead over visiting Chesapeake-Anne Arundel with under four minutes to play when she first turned aside a hard shot from the top of the circle for her 15th save. Off the rebound came save No. 16, another clear shot, point-blank from the right.The defense took care of the rest yesterday afternoon as the Lions claimed the Class 4A South region championship with a 2-1 win over Chesapeake, which deserved better.

Ask Washington Bullets guard Scott Skiles about his team's recent stretch, and he talks about it like a disease."It appears to be contagious," Skiles said last night. "I just don't know what to say about it."It has been said many, many, many times this season already -- 40 times now to be exact. Playing in their home away from home last night at the Baltimore Arena, a place where the team is usually at least competitive, the Bullets lost for the sixth straight time, 107-92, before a crowd of 12,756.

LANDOVER -- Washington Bullets guard Scott Skiles takes great pride in his free-throw shooting, and he should. He's third on the NBA's all-time list from the line.So, after drawing contact on a three-point attempt with his team down three with four seconds left yesterday, the Bullets were in excellent shape."He's a guy who shoots 95 percent from the line," teammate Juwan Howard said. "I knew for a fact all three were going in."But remember, just remember. These are the Bullets.It seems like the only luck the Bullets have had this season has been bad. How else could you explain Skiles' missing two of three free throws and later Howard's missing a potentially game-tying three-footer at the buzzer that allowed the struggling Denver Nuggets to escape with a 94-92 win before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at the USAir Arena?

ST. LOUIS -- It didn't make any difference that it was just a preseason game, or that the Washington Bullets were playing their starters against the reserves from the Chicago Bulls last night. When you're a team with no recent history of winning, you take a victory any way you can.So the 131-124 overtime win last night in the first event at the brand-new Kiel Center was meaningful for the Bullets.Rex Chapman scored 27 points and Scott Skiles added 21. The guards hit back-to-back three-pointers in the overtime that allowed the Bullets to even their preseason record at 1-1."
