Her college jersey hangs from the rafters in the Comcast Center at the University of Maryland. Her name graces a road, Vicky Bullett Street, in her hometown in West Virginia. And on Saturday, her visage will light up the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame when Bullett is enshrined there in Knoxville, Tenn. It's an honor that Bullett, never one to tout herself, said she deserves. "I'm very modest, but I like finally giving myself a compliment," the former Terp and two-time Olympic medalist said.

WASHINGTON - The question posed to Vicky Bullett by Washington Mystics general manager Melissa McFerrin after a recent practice seemed simple enough: Just how old are you? But, in keeping with what has become a remarkably complicated season, Bullett fired back with a joking, but telling response. "I'm too old to be right at this point playing this damn game. Does that answer your question?" replied Bullett with a weary grin. Just about everything about this 2000 Women's National Basketball Association season has been downright weary and far more complicated than it was supposed to be for Bullett, Maryland's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, and a two-time Olympian who came to Washington from the Charlotte Sting in an off-season trade.

COLLEGE PARK -- Vicky Bullett's name stood atop the Maryland women's basketball scoring and rebounding lists for nearly 19 years, long enough for someone to get attached to that spot. But when Crystal Langhorne, a toddler when Bullett was leading her generation of Terps to a Final Four appearance, grabbed first the rebounding and then the scoring crowns, Bullett was all too willing to move aside. Maryland women@North Carolina Saturday, 1 p.m., Comcast SportsNet Records: No. 4 Maryland (22-1, 6-0 ACC)

WASHINGTON - Teams that have lost 47 of the first 62 games in franchise history, like the Washington Mystics, usually approach a new season with a sense of optimism, but it's usually the "things just have to get better" brand of hope. But with tonight's launching of their third season in the WNBA, the Mystics are actually looking at the summer of 2000 as a breakthrough season, one that will start to reward their long-suffering fans, who have turned out in numbers far greater than the team's play has warranted.

COLLEGE PARK -As Marissa Coleman gingerly made her way off the court during the final minute of 11th-ranked Maryland's 94-78 victory over Virginia last night, the announced 7,053 fans at Comcast Center rose to give the senior a standing ovation. She typified the Terrapins' gritty, focused effort against the 17th-ranked Cavaliers and had the wounds to show for it: Her legs were cramping, and her knees were bloodied and wrapped with tape. "That game actually felt like a heavyweight match, versus a basketball game," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said afterward.

Kristi Toliver knows how these Senior Nights work, having watched - and shed a few tears - as former teammates Shay Doron, Crystal Langhorne, Laura Harper, Jade Perry and Ashleigh Newman were honored during the past two seasons. So she knows what to expect tonight, when the fifth-ranked Maryland women host Boston College in their regular-season home finale. Except this time, it will be her turn, along with fellow senior Marissa Coleman. Their jerseys will be raised to the Comcast Center rafters, where they will hang alongside those of Doron (2007 graduate)
