There's nothing to pity about Tom Sullivan -- and, of course, he would not permit it. He's blind but sees more of the world than the rest of us who have our eyes wide open. He is a remarkable individual -- gifted with intellect, creative ability, sensitivity, courage and a song of happiness both in his heart and on his lips.Sullivan has been blind since the early days of a premature birth when, after being placed in an incubator, something went wrong with the equipment and he was deprived of his sight . . . but not his vision.

Michael Hunt resigned yesterday as men's basketball coach at Towson University, telling school officials he was leaving to pursue other coaching opportunities. Hunt, 43, could not be reached to comment last night, but sources said he is a leading candidate for an assistant's job at Miami. Hunt and new Miami coach Frank Haith have had a long relationship, the sources said. Hunt had only one year left on his contract, something that could have hurt his recruiting efforts this year as he hadn't gotten an extension yet. In addition, school sources said the team still has at least two scholarships remaining for next season.

The freshman center who got his first career start came in averaging just nine minutes a game. With the top scorer injured, the fourth-leading scorer knew someone had to fill in. And when overtime came last night, UMBC found yet another source. Andrew Feeley's unfreshman-like performance, Will McClurkin's steady scoring and Ron Yates' takeover in overtime pushed the Retrievers past Northeast Conference foe Quinnipiac, 78-71, before 2,106 at RAC Arena. Leading most of the way with a number of chances to put the game away, the Retrievers let senior-laden Quinnipiac stay close by shooting 14-for-31 from the foul line.
