The University of Houston rolled out the big guns when Chester High track star Adonis Coles paid an official visit last month. Carl Lewis, Penn Wood graduate Leroy Burrell - how could Coles turn down a scholarship offer with Olympic gold-medal winners tugging on his sleeve? But it wasn't Houston's storied past that swayed Coles. It was a future under the tutelage of head coach Tom Tellez. "I talked to Carl Lewis. I talked to Leroy Burrell," Coles said. "But I couldn't base my decision on what they did. I decided to go there because of the coaching.

Charles Barkley wants to play for the 76ers against Houston tomorrow night at the Spectrum. But will he? "I think I'm playing, but that's just my opinion," said Barkley, who has been out since Nov. 4, when he suffered a bruised spleen and internal bleeding in a double overtime loss in Indianapolis. Barkley was to be re-evaluated Monday, but says he intends to ask to have that done tomorrow. "Sunday, Monday, that shouldn't make any difference," he said. "Twenty- four hours aren't going to make it or break it. I've been feeling good, haven't had any pain.

For Eric Futch, a standout track and field athlete at Penn Wood, it came down to two schools: Houston and Louisiana State. He made his decision two weeks ago. He just didn't tell anybody. On Wednesday, in Penn Wood's auditorium partially filled with family, friends, school administrators, and classmates, the 5-foot-11, 160-pound sprinter who holds the PIAA record in the 300-meter hurdles made his college destination public. Futch, wearing a maroon Penn Wood track and field shirt, with a backward Penn Wood hat, sat at a table draped with Houston and LSU T-shirts.

The turnovers Temple committed Friday night certainly played a role in its eye-opening, 31-10 loss at Houston. But that doesn't hide the fact that Temple (4-2, 2-1 American Athletic Conference) absorbed the type of statistical beating that indicates Houston was just a better team. The four turnovers included three P.J. Walker interceptions - two that led to scores - and a crucial Walker fumble at the Houston 1-yard line, ending a drive that could have tied the game at 17 early in the third quarter.

Jamaad Muse said he wasn't thinking about a track scholarship. "I didn't even realize this could happen," said Muse, a Timber Creek senior who on Wednesday signed a national letter of intent to attend the University of Houston on a track scholarship. Muse said he visited Houston last summer and also received a home visit from Cougars coach Leroy Burrell, a former Olympian who went to Penn Wood High School in the Philadelphia suburbs. "I loved it down there," Muse said. "They worked hard.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating why the nose-gear wheels on a US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Houston failed to deploy as the crew prepared to land Monday night. The reason appears to be mechanical failure. The Embraer 190 aircraft, with 52 passengers and four crew members on board, circled the traffic-control tower at George Bush Intercontinental Airport several times to let controllers take a look. The pilots then decided to make an emergency landing.

The guy playing quarterback for Villanova on Saturday afternoon wore a black ski mask under his helmet. And as he scrambled into the end zone to briefly give the Wildcats a late lead, you had to look up the sideline to confirm it actually was backup Chris Polony out there and not John Robertson in disguise. Robertson stood off to the side in street clothes, with a headset on. Villanova's star quarterback, and the favorite for the Walter Payton Award, was scratched before the game with a concussion.

VILLANOVA trailed by 10 in the third quarter of its opener at Syracuse. The Wildcats would lose in double overtime, but not before they drove 59 yards in 13 plays at the end of regulation, only to miss a 25-yard field goal from straightaway. Two games later, they trailed by 10 at home against James Madison, which has made the playoffs. They won by 18. In mid-October, they had to go 69 yards in seven plays to score a winning touchdown with 52 seconds left at William & Mary, which was ranked at the time.

MARY EUGENIA Houston was all about taking care of others. Whether it was her own family, her church family, or the students she helped as a speech therapist, Mary was all about service. And she had a number of talents to help her do her work. The wife of a preacher, she became a preacher herself, duly licensed by her denomination. As a speech pathologist, she worked with students in both the Philadelphia and Chester-Upland school districts. She held leadership positions in numerous service organizations, winning many honors, but she always had time for her family, insisting they have dinner together every night, and seeing to it that her children's schools got everything they needed.

The buzzer rang Monday on Comcast Corp.'s costly bid to televise Astros baseball and Rockets basketball games in the Houston area. A partnership of DirecTV and AT&T Inc. took possession of CSN Houston's studios near the Toyota Center and laid off 75 of the 141 employees of the bankrupt, Comcast-controlled regional sports network. The legal and financial tussle over the Rockets and Astros games has been watched nationally as evidence of a limit to how much regional sports networks can charge pay-TV distributors.

HOUSTON - Texans fans were wearing red T-shirts that the team handed out on the way into NRG Stadium, Eagles fans were wearing green, but fans and the players on both teams all agreed on one thing yesterday. Watching Eagles middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans leave on a cart, after suffering what a source said was a season-ending tear of his right Achilles' tendon, was heartrending. "Our thoughts and prayers are with DeMeco right now," said Texans center Chris Myers, who played with Ryans for four of Ryans' six seasons in Houston.
