TC BOWIE -- The wrong team was in disarray.Virginia Union handled Bowie State, 26-6, at Bulldog Stadium yesterday in a Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association contest the home team thought it could win.It came a week after Bowie State's (1-4, 1-3) only victory and a lopsided Virginia Union (1-2-1, 1-1-1) loss that got coach Mel Rose fired. The Panthers, who only four days earlier learned they would be under interim co-head coaches for the rest of the season, had their way offensively, defensively, and on special teams against a young Bulldogs team that has only nine seniors and five juniors.

COLLEGE PARK -- After just two exhibition games, we still don't know all that much about the Maryland basketball team, but it's probably safe to say at least three things. The Terps can shoot three-pointers. They still don't know who their point guard is going to be. Sophomore James Gist is growing up awfully fast. Maryland didn't exactly dominate in an 89-59 victory last night over Virginia Union at Comcast Center, despite what the final score would indicate, but the game did contain just enough moments of athletic brilliance to make you forget most of the bad. Gist, the 6-foot-8 forward from Good Counsel, finished with 17 points, and he also grabbed 10 rebounds, but two of his dunks were the plays that lingered long after the final horn.

Matters only turned worse for Bowie in the first half and Virginia Union parlayed its early momentum into a 70-64 victory and the Division II South Atlantic Regional championship before an overflow crowd at A.C.
