NEW ORLEANS - Although she was forced to the bench for long stretches twice with knee injuries during her collegiate career, former Germantown Academy star Caroline Doty will get a chance to finish with a third NCAA women's basketball title on Tuesday night. "I'm glad the national championship is my last career game," said Doty, whose Connecticut team will take on Big East rival Louisville (28-8) at the New Orleans Arena. "I hope to go out with a bang. " Doty, a point guard and deadly three-point shooter, was one of the top prospects in the country when she began her UConn career in 2008.

Caroline Doty, a Germantown Academy graduate and now a star basketball player at Connecticut, has treated fans with a trick shot video over the last few years. Last week, she was on the wrong side of trick-or-treating. Dressed as Lady GaGa for Halloween, Doty apparently drew complaints from other residents in her dorm, and they contacted campus police. Police said Doty was banging on doors as she made her way around the halls, and she was issued a citation at 2:15 a.m. The UConn athletic department said the matter was being handled internally.

ASANTE SAMUEL says he doesn't care if he starts at cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons. His stance isn't much different from Week 1 last year in Philadelphia after the Eagles acquired Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Even though he started all 14 of his games, Samuel was initially the odd man out. By October, with Philadelphia off to a poor start, he complained about management's desire to reduce his role. With the Falcons, the label of being a starting cornerback is somewhat less relevant.

So here's one way of looking at it: The road to the Elite Eight in women's college basketball this season goes through Germantown Academy. Two former Germantown Academy standouts - Maggie Lucas of Penn State and Caroline Doty of Connecticut - will play against one another in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA women's tournament Sunday at 4:34 p.m. in Kingston, R.I. Their high school coach, Sherri Retif, will be at the game. But she will be wearing blue - one of the colors of both teams - and she bought her ticket through Ticketmaster, not through either team.

On Sundays, Caroline Doty puts on her Michael Vick jersey and watches the Eagles. Her favorite player is wide receiver DeSean Jackson ("He's such a tiny dude and sky's the limit," she said), but the Vick jersey was a gift from her brother. "There's nothing like being from Philadelphia," said Doty, a graduate of Germantown Academy and redshirt junior for the University of Connecticut women's basketball team. "It gives me an edge. Some people don't see it, some people do. " Doty needs that edge.

AS STANFORD harried Connecticut's backcourt, Caroline Doty had to be thinking that, if she were healthy, things would be different. As Georgetown did the same, she had to believe that, if her left knee were right, she would be enjoying a lovely hometown return in her sport's brightest spotlight. Right? "Oh, no," said Doty, a product of Germantown Academy. "I've never thought, 'If I was in there, things would be different.' I mean, maybe they would. Maybe they wouldn't.

After tearing an anterior cruciate ligament for the third time since her senior year at Germantown Academy, Caroline Doty has not been able to play for the Connecticut Huskies this season. All that free time has given the Doylestown product ample opportunity to develop another skill: the trick shot. About two months ago, at the urging of Connecticut's manager, Greg Mihailides, Doty starred in a video called "Rise & Fire," which as of last week had received more than 160,000 hits on YouTube.

THE PLAYERS' ace in the hole in their snail's-pace labor negotiations with the NFL owners is an 81-year-old ex-Marine captain from Coon Rapids, Minn., with a 28 golf handicap and a fondness for cigars. He is U.S. District Judge David S. Doty and he is the league's worst nightmare right now. He is the reason the owners haven't told the players to take their open-your-books request and shove it. He is the reason that commissioner Roger Goodell repeatedly mentions that talking is better than litigating.

Do not be fooled. This is still about greed. It is a positive development that the National Football League and the NFL Players Association agreed on Friday to extend the deadline for the expiration of their collective bargaining agreement by seven days. The players did not have to decertify as a union on Friday or sue the league for antitrust violations, and the owners did not have to lock the players out. The players still are receiving their health benefits, but teams cannot make any roster moves during the extension.
