' m i- m TODAY IN HISTORY: In 1936, I Detroit's Mud Bruneteau ended the longest game in NHL history with a - goal after 116 minutes, 30 seconds and g six overtimes, as the Red Wings g defeated the Montreal Maroons 1-0 in the semifinals of the Stanley Cup playoffs. r-66- STAT OF THE DAY: Same injury, yet one's out for 10 days, one's out for the season. Chris Dudley of the Knicks, who broke his right foot, returned home from rehab Saturday to find his Dalmation, Bo, with a cast on his foot, too. Dudley's wife, after seeing the X-ray, said the dog broke his foot in the same place as her husband. WHO AM I? Joe Garagiola contends I had the best home run trot of any player in baseball. "He worked on it," Garagiola points out. " s only regret was that he never saw himself play." It's hard to imagine anybody more popular in Montreal than rehpe (Alou). But if anybody could do it, it would be Gary (Carter)." CHRIS WIDGER, young Expos catcher, covering his bases.

Maria Savio, a lawyer for the tall one, said Monday the matter "is in the process of being resolved" and that an announcement would be made shortly. The more lanky Abdul-Jabbar, who starred for UCLA and the Los Angeles Lakers, sued in November, claiming the more compact Abdul-Jabbar J i Abdul-Jabbar tfie first drraA in UCLA took that name without permission. The sky-hooking one wjuited a federal judge to stop the sale of merchandise with the njnning and pass-catching one's name on it. Abdul-Jabbar the towering recently had his name (not that of A.bdul-Jabbar the heavily padded) in headlines in connection with a small amount of marijuana that U.S. customs agents confiscated from hm at the Toronto's Pearson International Airport. Abdul-Jabbar-wjiose-voice-comes-from-above claimed the marijuana was prescribed by doctors because he gets migraine headaches. Probably frpm all those impostors. Vino's your favorite coach ever? t Miami is lucky with coaches. In a random telephone poll conducted by ESPN and Chilton to determine sports fans' all-time faVorite coaches, the list of the top 10 included Jimmy Johnson (second), Pat Riley (sixth) and Don Shula (10th). I The question asked of 1,767 people was: "Thinking of all professional sports, who is your favorite professional head coach active or inactive?" I Here's the top 10. Gilbert denied free agency The Associated Press WASHINGTON Defensive tackle Sean Gilbert, to whom the Miami Dolphins offered $5.9 million per year last week, was denied in his bid to become a free agent Monday night. Special master Jack Frie-denthal ruled Gilbert must remain the designated franchise player for the Washington Redskins, who now will try to trade him or hope another team signs him. If signed, the franchise tag means the team that signs him must give up two first-round picks, or a similar compensation deal. Bob Ackles, Dolphins director of football operations, has said the team might pull its offer if Gilbert's franchise tag was not reduced (perhaps to transition player) or removed. Couple that with Jimmy Johnson's history of not dealing draft picks and it appears the Dolphins are out of the hunt. Gilbert had attracted offers up to $6 million per year from other teams, including the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars. Gilbert and the NFL Players Union argued the Redskins violated a clause in the collective bargaining agreement that states a club must "have a good faith intention to employ" a franchise player. Gilbert has refused to comment on the matter. MEN'S TENNIS FAU wins sixth straight: The Owls (10-4) defeated both Georgia State and Central Florida 4-3 to extend their winning streak to six.

Ronald Curry, one of the nation's top high school recruits in basketball and football, will announce that he will attend North Carolina, according to a published report. Curry had considered attending Florida State. The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, quoting sources it did not identify, said in a story for today's editions that Curry notified North Carolina last week after meeting in Hampton with Tar Heels assistant basketball coach Phil Ford and Hampton High School basketball coach Walter Brower. "The day after Phil Ford left, Ronald told Brower to call him back and tell him," one source said. "Paperwork was ordered from Carolina." The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that Curry likely will play both sports for the Tar Heels. Curry would not confirm the reports. Speaking to reporters Monday following practice for Wednesday's McDonald's Ail-Americans game in Norfolk, Curry said: "Find out (at the news conference). It's over with now. I already made my decision." Curry, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior, plans to announce his decision today. Curry said he made up his mind last week.

I On the air Palm Beach Post Wire Services ORLANDO The NFL approved an expansion team for Cleveland on Monday, returning the Browns to the field in 1999 in an unprecedented move that restores one of football's storied franchises. With unanimous support from owners, the league will expand to 31 teams for the 1999 season, keeping its commitment to put a club in Cleveland after the Browns moved to Baltimore in 1995. NFL The Browns will return to the AFC Central, playing their first exhibition game against Dallas in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio, next year. The first home game is scheduled to be played Aug. 21, 1999, in a $247 million, 72,000-seat stadium being built on the same site as old Cleveland Stadium, which was torn down after the move. NFL Commissioner Paul Tag-liabue also announced that the league hired Joe Mack as player personnel director of the Browns. NFL owners also ratified an extension of the collective bargaining agreement and Tagliabue was given a five-year contract extension on the first day of meetings. The owners voted 28-1 with one abstention to extend the bargaining agreement through the 2003 season. The possible return of instant replay will be the hot topic at the meetings, which are expected to conclude Wednesday or Thursday. Dolphins sign defensive end: The Dolphins added depth to their defensive line Monday, signing end Mike Chalenski to a one-year contract. Chalenski appeared m eight games last season, and had six tackles. Chalenski will compete for playing time on a defensive line that includes Tim Bowens, Daryl Gardener, Jason Taylor, Danny Stubbs, Barron Tanner and Dun-stan Anderson. Shane Burton, who plays tackle and end, had shoulder surgery and may not be ready for training camp. '..faffs-!
