SPORTS DIGEST Baseball BOSTON — From his penchant for running into walls to his parting shots at Red Sox management, Mike Greenwell rarely did anything quietly in Boston. But the 33-year-old left-fielder quietly retired from baseball on Wednesday, giving up after fouling a ball off his foot and breaking it while playing for the Hanshin Tigers in Japan. Basketball INDIANAPOLIS — Sports Illustrated said Thursday it stands by a story critical of Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight and the Hoosier program. The national sports magazine was responding to a letter to the editor from the IU players, who said the magazine did not accurately portray the program and that none of the players were contacted for the story. Forward Andrae Patterson told The Associated Press on Wednesday the players wrote the letter "because Sports Illustrated did not give us a chance to put in our side of what goes on at Indiana." CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. — Ron Shumate, who led Southeast Missouri State through some lean years as it adjusted to Division I status, was fired Thursday with the basketball program facing an NCAA investigation. The school's board of regents voted unanimously on Monday to terminate the contract of Shumate — who has had five consecutive losing seasons — and released the action on Thursday. BETHESDA, Md. — To the screams of cheerleaders and the beeps of cash registers, Washington's NBA team officially changed its name from Bullets to Wizards on Thursday and unveiled a logo featuring — surprise — a bearded magician with a pointed hat. The slick, modern design has the sorcerer in blue, his chest emblazoned with a black "W" as he leaps over a gold crescent basketball- seamed moon. The Wizard is also spinning a gold basketball with one hand and pointing to a gold • star with the other. FISHERS, Ind. — Firefighters trying to douse the blaze that destroyed Indiana Pacer Reggie Miller's $2.9 million house Thursday were hampered by a lack of nearby fire hydrants. Neither ' Miller nor his wife, Marita, were at the 14,000* square-foot home on Geist Reservoir when the fire broke out early Thursday morning. . Football CLEVELAND — Local and NFL officials broke ground Thursday at the site of the future home of the next version of the Cleveland Browns. "The Cleveland Browns are part of the fabric of this city," Mayor Michael R. White said. "They are us and we are them. That's why it was no surprise to me that this community closed ranks" to keep a team after Art Modell moved his franchise to Baltimore. The new stadium will be built at the site of the old one, which was built in 1931 and was torn down last year. Golf ROCKLAND, Del. — Pat Bradley enjoyed another fine day at the office Thursday, shooting a 1-under-par 70 in the opening round of the LPGA Championship to remain in the hunt for her 32nd career victory. Bradley, vying for her seventh m_a- jor title, had 17 pars and a birdie on the par-3 17th. Olympics BALTIMORE — Baltimore will seek to host the Olympic Games in 2012 now that the U.S. Olympic Committee has decided against bidding for the 2008 games, Maryland Stadium Authority Chairman John Moag said Thursday. Tennis ROME — Jim Courier wonders whether he will ever be the dominant player he once was. But he might be getting closer. Showing signs of regaining the form that made him the world's No. 1 plaiy- er five years ago, Courier beat Switzerland's Marc Rosset 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 Thursday to reach the Italian Open quarterfinals. Following up his first-round victory over No. 1 Pete Sampras, the unseeded Courier established himself as a legitimate title contender at the clay-court tournament. BERLIN — Anna Kournikova, a 15-year-old Russian who is part of the new generation in women's tennis, beat Arantxa Sanchez Vicario 3-6, 6-0, 6-3 at the German Open on Thursday for the biggest victory of her career. In reaching the quarterfinals of the $927,000 tournament, Kournikova for the first time defeated a player ranked in the top 10. General AUSTIN, Texas — A bill in the Texas Legislature has been assailed by University of Texas offj- cials who say sports at the state's public colleges would be reduced to an afterthought if the measure passes. The bill would require college athletes to match the grade-point average of their fellow students to get state-funded athletic scholarships. "It would be a disaster if it passed," basketball coach Tom Fenders on Wednesday told the Senate Education Committee, which took no action on the bill. "You might as well blow up the football field and the basketball courts and make parking lots out of them." Also opposing the measure were former football coach Darrell Royal, women's basketball coach Jody Conradt and athletic director DeLoss Dodds. The bill would result in Texas being dropped from the Big 12 conference, Dodds said. Senate Education Committee Chairman Teel Bivins, R-Amarillo, said Thursday he does not believe there are enough votes on the committee to pass the bill.
