SPORTS DIGEST Baseball NEW YORK — Doctors believe New York Mets pitcher Jason Isringhausen is suffering from a treatable form of tuberculosis, they said Thursday. Mets internist Dr. John Olichney, who has headed a team of specialists examining the 24- year-old pitcher, said a final diagnosis is not expected until next week. Basketball INDIANAPOLIS — The debate goes something like this: Do the Indiana Pacers go for someone with a proven record? Or do they gamble on a novice who is possibly the most intriguing name in the growing NBA coaching derby? A front-runner to succeed Larry Brown appears to be Indiana native son Larry Bird, who compiled an impressive resume as a player but has no coaching experience. Bird's name alone would fill Market Square Arena, but would it help the Pacers win more games? "He looks at the game from more of a coach's mind than a player's mind," Pacers president Donnie Walsh said of Bird. Walsh talked over the weekend with Bird, the first of a number of candidates Walsh said he will approach about the job vacated by Brown on Wednesday. HOOVER, Ala. — Rick Pitino wants a long- term contract with Kentucky, saying he is intent on ending annual speculation about his taking an NBA coaching job. "If I am back next year, and I intend to be, it's going to be with a long-term contract," said Pitino, speaking Thursday in an on- the-course interview during a pro-am golf tournament. Pitino said that what has become a yearly string of stories mentioning him as a candidate for NBA jobs is unfair to the university, its players and fans. SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — Former UCLA basketball coach Jim Harrick left the state Thursday without a contract, as the University of Rhode Island's president deliberated whether to hire him. Harrick, fired by UCLA for lying on an expense form, met with URI athletic director Ron Petro, president Robert Carothers, players and boosters during the two-day visit. But the decision rested Thursday in the hands of Carothers, who faces a dilemma with Harrick: Carothers has taken strong stands on the ethical behavior of players. Football LEXINGTON, Ky. — Minnesota Vikings running back Maurece "Moe" Williams will be issued a summons after a 21-year-old woman said he had raped her, officials said. Williams, a former star at the University of Kentucky, was named in a complaint that should result in a summons to appear in Fayette District Court, said Fayette County Attorney Margaret Kannensohn. The woman filed a criminal complaint against Williams early Wednesday, saying she had been raped, Kannen r sohn said. A police report dated Monday said Williams allegedly sexually assaulted the woman early Sunday. Golf THE WOODLANDS, Texas — David Duval says first-round scores in golf tournaments are overrated. Then he admits the view from the top is a whole lot better than the alternative. Duval shot a 7-under-par 65 to grab a two-shot lead over Curtis Strange after Thursday's first round of the Houston Open. Olympics BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Sabres goalie Dominik Hasek was suspended Thursday for three playoff games and fined $10,000 by the NHL for attacking a reporter last week. Commissioner Gary Bettman ordered Hasek to sit out the first three games of the Sabres' Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers. The goalie will be allowed to play in Game 4 of the best-of-7 series. Hasek, a favorite to win the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player, attacked Buffalo News reporter Jim Kelley after Game 5 of Buffalo's series against the Ottawa Senators. Olympics COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Eight U.S. cities signed up Thursday for an Olympic race that might never be held. Hoping to lure the games to the United States for an unprecedented ninth time, officials from the nation's capital to the Pacific Northwest sent applications and non- refundable $100,000 checks to the U.S. Olympic Committee, which could pick one of them to bid for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Lining up for the chase — which might last four years and cost up to $40 million — were Baltimore, Cincinnati, . Houston, New Orleans, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington. The list was almost twice as long as officials had predicted just three weeks ago. General DALLAS — The NCAA placed Texas-El Paso's troubled athletic department back on probation Thursday, this time for five years. The NCAA found several violations that David Swank, chairman of the NCAA Committee on Infractions, characterized as relatively minor but rampant. Swank said the violations concerned grade-average calculations, athletes' free use of departmental copying machines, overall institutional compliance and other problems. Most of the violations concerned competition by academically ineligible players. Sometimes the players were no longer in classes for which they had registered and thus were below the 12-class-hour minimum; in other cases, their grades were incorrectly calculated.
