WASHINGTON - MCI Center, normally crackling with excitement and buzz during Washington Mystics games, was as quiet as a school library in July during a game with the Charlotte Sting last month when a clamor arose. The chant, "Let's Go Mystics, Let's Go," wasn't so unusual, but the point of its origin, one of the normally sedate luxury boxes on the mezzanine level, was odd. Strange, too, was the source of the cheering, a woman in a salmon-colored business suit. But who could blame Sheila Johnson, the first black cheerleader at the University of Illinois, for getting a little rowdy at a Mystics game?

WASHINGTON - As bouncing leather balls and squeaking sneakers resonate throughout the practice gym at MCI Center, Pat Summitt leans on a railing overlooking the court. She's not doling out orders today. There's no new defense to install. No one is the recipient of her patented "stare." No, it's a more pacific venture than the one she has waged for 28 years as women's basketball coach at the University of Tennessee. This is a new ballgame for Pat Summitt. "I'm just going to sit back and watch," she said from her perch.
