Another day, another victory on the hardwood. And Dream Team III did not play. For the second time in three nights, it was the U.S. women who did their part to capture some portion of the imagination of America's basketball fans. Using a team-high 15 points from reserve Katie Smith and an explosive 12-0 run early in the second half, the U.S. women performed in a fashion typically exhibited by their male comrades, coasting to a 90-61 victory over Cuba yesterday in their second game at the Olympic Dome.

The Rage set the kind of mark it would rather not, scoring a franchise-low point total in a 69-48 loss to the Columbus Quest last night. Katie Smith scored 16 points as the Quest beat the Rage for the third straight time. Markita Aldridge's 10 points led the Rage, which shot just 33 percent. The Rage also committed 30 turnovers. "They are a good defensive team," Rage coach Lisa Boyer said of the Quest, "but I am concerned with how we are handling the ball. "

There is nothing new about the West being favored to beat the East in the third annual WNBA All-Star Game tonight at the TD Waterhouse Centre. The West captured the inaugural game in New York's Madison Square Garden in 1999, 79-61, then won again last year, 73-61, at the America West Arena in Phoenix. What is different for the West this season is the emergence of 5-foot-11 Minnesota Lynx forward Katie Smith as one of its main attractions. The Ohio State graduate set a WNBA single-game record with 46 points on July 8 in a 100-95 loss in overtime to the Los Angeles Sparks.

The American Basketball League season has wound down to a winner-take-all contest between the Columbus Quest and the Long Beach StingRays to be played at 7 tonight at the Quest's Battelle Hall. So far in the best-of-five final series, which is tied at two games apiece, the expansion StingRays have shocked the Quest, the defending league champions, by grabbing the first two games in Long Beach. The upsets occurred after Columbus had blasted Long Beach in their four regular-season meetings.

The morning start time suited Chamique Holdsclaw just fine. Holdsclaw scored a career-high 30 points and the Washington Mystics held the visiting Indiana Fever to one basket in the final 6 minutes to post an 85-74 victory in a contest that began at 11:30 a.m. yesterday. It was the first win for coach Darrell Walker, who replaced Nancy Darsch just before the All-Star break and lost his inaugural game to Charlotte. "Good win," Walker said. Three days after participating in the All-Star Game, Holdsclaw hit 12 of 18 shots from the field, grabbed nine rebounds and also set a career high with eight steals.

The Houston Comets held Chamique Holdsclaw in check for the second half, but the damage had been done. Holdsclaw scored 16 of her 20 points in the first half, but the Washington Mystics still beat visiting Houston, 70-64, last night, snapping an eight-game losing streak to the Comets. Holdsclaw hit a jumper to start the second half, but then went scoreless until her jumper with 11.2 seconds left made it 70-64. Holdsclaw, who leads the WNBA in scoring and rebounding, grabbed 10 rebounds for the Mystics (5-1)

These are giddy times for the Washington Mystics. Last summer as an expansion team, the Mystics were the joke of women's pro basketball with a dismal 3-27 record. This time around, rookie Chamique Holdsclaw and veteran Nikki McCray have the Mystics in the playoff hunt down the stretch despite the squad's dubious 11-17 mark. Washington extended its franchise win-streak record to five last night with a 59-56 overtime victory over the Eastern Division-leading New York Liberty at the MCI Center in front of a crowd of 15,388.

The New York Knicks finally qualified for the playoffs. They couldn't have been unhappier. Upset at blowing several double-digit leads, bitter about the way the crowd treated Patrick Ewing and acting more grumpy than elated, the Knicks locked up a playoff berth last night by defeating the Boston Celtics, 95-88. "It was disappointing to me that every time [Ewing] shot the ball there were some murmurs in the crowd. You know, this guy, ever since he got here, has laid it on the line.

Chamique Holdsclaw is returning to form at the perfect time for the Washington Mystics. Holdsclaw had 18 points and 17 rebounds to lead the Mystics to a 60-54 victory over host Cleveland last night - showing no effects of a sprained left ankle that caused her to miss eight games in July. "My body is aching because this is my first year playing the post and doing all that banging inside," Holdsclaw said. "I want to play a few more meaningful games in the playoffs, though. " Holdsclaw, who also missed a game on Aug. 4 with a mildly sprained right ankle, scored 14 points in the second half.

INDIANAPOLIS - The storybook portion of Elena Delle Donne's rookie WNBA season ended last week when she spun to a space all her own by the foul line, free for a buzzer-beating, straight-to-YouTube game-winner. When WNBA awards were announced last week, Delle Donne was the unanimous rookie of the year, third in voting for league MVP. She was the leading vote-getter for the WNBA All-Star Game. Just last week, she called it a dream season. That was last week. Her season thudded to a close Sunday, going down like this: With a little more than a minute remaining and her team down by 24, a Chicago Sky teammate committed a foul 20 feet from the basket.
