WASHINGTON - After she was fined by the WNBA for griping about the officiating of the last Indiana-Detroit game, Tamika Catchings got a call from home. It was the sort of consequence that nearly everyone dreads. But the message from her mother turned out to be more supportive than chiding. "My mom called and left a message and said, `I'm going to support you no matter what you do or say,' " said Catchings with a sheepish grin last week. "Of course, she's my mom and she wants to see that her baby is safe.

Crystal Langhorne (Maryland) scored all 16 of her points in the second half and had nine rebounds as the Washington Mystics rallied to upend the defending WNBA champion Indiana Fever, 64-60, on Sunday afternoon. It was Washington's third straight win and marked the second time the team has started a season with wins in four of its first five games. Washington went a league-worst 5-29 last season. Indiana (1-5) pulled ahead by four when it closed the third quarter on a 7-0 run. But forwards Michelle Snow and Langhorne ensured the Fever suffered its fifth straight defeat, combining for 14 of Washington's final 18 points.

Count to 10: If Tennessee wins its first 10 games, it will own the longest streak in women's history, which belongs to Louisiana Tech at 54. To do that, the Lady Vols will have to beat the Lady Techsters on the road in their fourth game, and Louisiana Tech has a 45-game home streak at work.What's next, Cinderella?: North Carolina State and Arkansas made surprise first trips to the Final Four, but return visits seem unlikely. Both suffered substantial graduation losses, and assistant coach Breezy Bishop (Western)

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- By now, the invocation of Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt for her team to rebound must be the thing her Lady Vols players hear just before REM sleep sets in at night. But Summitt's chants haven't become so rote as to be ignored, as the No. 2 Lady Vols pounded the glass early and often in yesterday's 77-56 Mideast Regional semifinal win over 19th-ranked Virginia. Tennessee will meet No. 11 Texas Tech in tomorrow's regional final. The Lady Raiders (28-4)

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Funny, how folks deal with losing around here.The football team went undefeated, and after winning the national championship Monday night, the players talked about how much last year's Orange Bowl defeat had motivated them.The women's basketball team -- the beloved Lady Vols to everyone in the so-called "Orange Nation" -- suffered their first loss in more than a year back in mid-November, and the players, not to mention coach Pat Summitt, talked in the same cliches.Can you imagine how motivated Tennessee would be if it loses again, say today on its trip to Storrs for a much-anticipated showdown with top-ranked Connecticut?

Kobe Bryant will play limited minutes in the Lakers' two European preseason games as he rests his knee following offseason surgery, coach Phil Jackson said Saturday. The NBA champion Lakers will take on the Timberwolves in a sold-out game Monday night at London's O2 Arena, then play FC Barcelona in the Spanish city on Oct. 7. "He's not going to play a whole lot," Jackson said. "His playing time will be limited, maybe 6-7 minutes in his first run, then we'll see if he can play another set. "He's not doing anything too explosive, but he looked good and shot the ball well.
