"It was tough to come in to a place like Tech and come out with a win," Landers said yesterday after the 77-72 victory. "They did a really good job.

Georgia led by four when the lights in the arena went out with 3:52 remaining.

Crawford had a career-high 13 points and 15 rebounds in fifth-ranked Georgia's 107-46 rout of visiting Hampton last night. "This game meant a lot because of the way we played our last game here.

Georgia's football team will spend the next two years on probation but escaped major sanctions yesterday when the NCAA took the unusual step of accepting the school's self-imposed penalties. The Bulldogs, who already had agreed to reduce their scholarships next year and cut their ties to prominent south Florida booster Dan Calloway, remain eligible to play in bowl games and appear on television. The university was cited mainly for its relationship with Calloway, a Palm Beach County, Fla., youth sport organizer who provided cash, meals and other benefits to high school players who were being recruited by Georgia.

Charlayne Hunter-Gault, national correspondent for PBS' "MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour," carved out a place for herself in American history in 1961 when she became the first black woman to be admitted to the University of Georgia. In the current issue of TV Guide, she talks about her experiences at the school she graduated from in 1963. " 'Char-layne,' they kept calling out from every direction, drawing my name as only Southerners can, so perfect in their pronunciation, so familiar and yet so distant.

Georgia suspended starting forward Steve Thomas and backup guard Tony Cole yesterday while university police investigated a report that a female student was raped in a dormitory. The suspensions occurred shortly before the 20th-ranked Bulldogs, who moved into the national rankings two days earlier for the first time this season, lost, 77-72, to No. 16 Alabama in a key Southeastern Conference game. "The situation was probably a distraction, but you can't really tell," Georgia coach Jim Harrick said.

Less than three weeks after receiving a vote of confidence from the athletic director, Georgia basketball coach Ron Jirsa was fired yesterday. Jirsa, who never held a head coaching job before he was picked to succeed Tubby Smith in 1997, had a two-year record of 35-30, including a disappointing 15-15 mark this season. Athletic director Vince Dooley, speaking during a hastily called news conference, said the main reason for the change was the Bulldogs' poor finish. Georgia lost its final four games and 11 of the last 14 to wind up at .500.

When former United Nations ambassador and civil rights leader Andrew Young campaigns for governor in the white neighborhoods of rural Georgia, he doesn't extend his hand first for a handshake. He doesn't slap white people on the shoulder or kiss their babies. "There's good reason. When I was growing up you could get killed for that, literally," said the black, 58-year-old former Atlanta mayor. His voice showed not anger, but an eagerness to make the issue clear. "Maybe you don't ever outgrow some of those cautions.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - It was a Kodak moment unto itself, and it might foreshadow a Sunday scene. Fuzzy Zoeller walked down the narrow strip of land next to the water on the ninth hole of Augusta National's par-3 course. Tall, lanky Harris English ambled along beside him. Zoeller reached over and put his right arm around English's shoulders and looked up. "Go out," Zoeller said, "and kick some butt. " Easier said than done. Twenty-four rookies will tee off in today's first round of the Masters, a record in the 77-year history of the tournament.

YOU'RE at the pharmacy to pick up your diabetes medication. The pharmacist takes a look at you and at your prescription, and refuses to fill it. Why? Is it expired, or maybe you're out of refills? No, the prescription is valid and current. But the pharmacist has decided that your Type II diabetes is something you brought on yourself, and because of his deeply held moral and religious objection to the sin of gluttony, he doesn't have to serve you. (At this point, the HIV-positive guy in line behind you is getting nervous.)

KABUL, Afghanistan - Georgia said Wednesday that the country has closed two of its bases in Afghanistan after 10 of its soldiers were killed by militant attacks within the last four weeks, but it will not reduce the number of troops serving there. The announcement by Defense Minister Irakli Alasania came five days after he visited Afghanistan to meet with his country's contingent in the U.S-led coalition in the aftermath of the attacks. A massive truck bomb killed seven Georgians at their base in Helmand province's Now-e-Zad district on June 6, while three other Georgian soldiers died May 13 in a bomb attack on another base in Helmand's Musa Qala district.
