C-2 The Orlando Sentinel, Wednesday, May 20, 1992 Sports this morning " is -. - - I It's official: Sun Belt allows Knights to leave conference The Sun Belt Conference members Tuesday unanimously approved a request from the University of Central Florida to terminate its membership, effective July 1. UCF had requested to leave the conference after a dispute over television rights and forfeited its $50,000 entry fee for leaving early. The decision, which came at the conference's meetings in Hilton Head, S.C., leaves the Sun Belt with 10 teams. The schools also agreed to impose a moratorium on expansion for three years. The Knights have already been accepted by the Trans America Athletic Conference and will join the TAAC, pending approval by the Florida Board of Regents. - FROM STAFF REPORTS Dr. Phillips' all-state center decides to play for Stetson Lamilia Ford, who helped lead Dr. Phillips High School to the Florida Girls Class AAAA Basketball Tournament the past three seasons and guided the Panthers to a state title in March, has signed a let-terof-intent with Stetson University. She averaged 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Panthers (34-2) beat Hialeah American, 4745, in the state title game. Ford surpassed 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds at Dr. Phillips, was named the Florida Athletic Coaches Association's District 10 player of the year, and was a first-team Class AAAA all-state selection. She also led the team in steals for three seasons. "She has great instincts for the game and has learned to finish from both sides of the basket," Stetson coach Caren Truske said. - JEFF BAB1NEAU, of the Sentinel Staff Marlins' owner wants stadium H. Wayne Huizenga, though, will wait for the Robbie children to settle their dispute. ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI Florida Marlins owner H. Wayne Huizenga says he has discussed buying control of Joe Robbie Stadium from the children of the late founder of the Miami Dolphins. Huizenga owns 50 percent of the stadium, a stake he acquired after Joe Robbie died in January 1990. He also owns 15 percent of the Dolphins. "There have been scenarios discussed" with the Robbies, Huizenga said, but he objected to the term "negotiations." "They haven't made me an offer, and I haven't made them an offer," Huizenga told The Miami Herald for a story published Tuesday. "They haven't told me they want to sell or they don't want to sell." Huizenga said negotiations would have to wait until at least the last week of July, when a court hearing is scheduled to determine the value of the Dolphins. The Robbie children are feuding over division of their father's estate. The three Robbie children who oversee the family's 50 percent of the stadium would not answer questions but released a statement: "The rumor that the Robbie family has entered negotiations with Wayne Huizenga to sell ownership in the stadium is totally unfounded." Any deal would likely involve Huizenga's assuming the stadium's debt and giving cash to be divided among nine Robbie children who, with Huizenga, are the stadium's stockholders. The expansion Marlins join the National League in 1993 and will play 81 games in the stadium each year. The Dolphins will play 10.

O OLYMPICS PLEAS BY Olympic officials to close a controversial exhibit of a stuffed African tribesman during the Barcelona Summer Games will be rejected. Carles Abella said the decision to keep the exhibit open is "irrevocable" despite pressure from the International Olympic Committee and Spanish citizens who charge the museum display is racist. The exhibit El Negro of a stuffed black man holding a spear has been on display at the Darder Museum of Natural History, about 70 miles northeast of Barcelona, since 1918. TRACK AND FIELD SUSPENDED WORLD record-holder Butch Reynolds said he plans to file the legal paperwork necessary to allow him to attempt to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team. Reynolds, banned since 1990 because of a positive drug test said his attorneys intend to file a petition in federal court. Reynolds maintains that a paperwork error made by the testing lab wrongly labeled him a drug user. Reynolds: "Somehow, through aJI this, I still believe I can win a gold medal. I can't quit now." The Athletics Congress has recommended he be reinstated; however, Reynolds was denied in his appeal two weeks ago by the International Amateur Athletics Federation. B FOOTBALL SOPHOMORE CORNERBACK Toby Cates will be reinstated at South Carolina after his guilty plea to defrauding the phone company.
