The newest 76er pulled on his fourth NBA uniform last night and hoped he had finally found a place to stay for a while. It has been difficult so far for Greg Grant to find that place. The 5-foot- 7 point guard has played for Phoenix, New York and Charlotte in the last three seasons and has been released by each of those teams. Now, he's in Philadelphia. "It always feels good to have a job, and I'm looking forward to getting a chance here to show what I can do," said Grant, who played in college at nearby Trenton State.

It has been quite a learning experience for Andre Miller, a change of style and scenery he's had to make on the fly as the new point guard of the 76ers. "On the fly" seems to be an accurate description. Miller played in three games for the Sixers after being acquired from Denver in the Allen Iverson trade before he even participated in a full practice with his new team. As the Sixers tried to find some wins in their disappointing season, starting with last night's matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers at the Rose Garden, it's up to Miller to pick up things quicker than might be expected otherwise.

The University of Pennsylvania will have a new guard next season His name is Michael Jordan (no, not that one), and he is a senior at Abington Friends. At a news conference yesterday at his high school, Jordan, a 6-foot, 165- pound senior, announced that he chose to continue his basketball career at Penn. His commitment is contingent upon being accepted by the university, a decision that should be made within the next few weeks. Jordan selected Penn over Drexel, Duquesne and St. Joseph's.

Rick Santorum, among others, is on the bus. William Cohen, among others, is getting off the bus. The developments are perhaps not unrelated. There he was, Pennsylvania's junior senator, beaming for the news cameras alongside seven other Republican first-termers, about to board a bus to tour the land promoting the GOP gospel: balanced budgets, lower taxes, cheaper welfare. And there he was, Maine's senior Republican senator, veteran of 23 Washington summers, announcing that he would be the record 13th senator not to seek reelection.

John Widlicka doesn't have to say anything. You can see it in his eyes - if he has to answer another question about Jack Tramiel or another ghost from Commodore's creaky history, he'll explode. "I can't be responsible for the sins of the past. I've got to concern myself with the future," said Widlicka, part of the new guard now working at the West Chester plant, headquarters for Commodore's U.S. computer business. Widlicka, in fact, is frank about his view of Commodore's prospects.

On the floor of Market Square Arena in Indianapolis on Tuesday, Sixers rookie guard Hersey Hawkins struggled through a poor shooting night. He made 2 of 11 shots and played only 26 minutes. Coach Jim Lynam went to his new alternative in that game, getting 21 minutes and 10 strong points out of 6-foot-6 guard Derek Smith. The following night in the Spectrum, Hawkins rattled in 9 of 14 shots for a team-high 23 points. Coincidence or something more? You be the judge.

It took Willie Burton just one game with the 76ers to switch from jersey No. 30 to No. 9. Why? The Sixers' new guard/ forward had not worn No. 9 in his four seasons with Miami. He had no history with the number. But he had a plan. "I was picked No. 9 in the draft (in 1990) and felt the whole time I was with the Heat I never had a chance to showcase what I could do," Burton explained. In his fourth game with his new team, he rained in 27 points, one shy of his career high, in a 99-98 loss last night to the Detroit Pistons.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The people who are closest to Roy Halladay - at least in terms of proximity - maintain that they do not see a change in the 35-year-old righthander. "Same Roy," pitching coach Rich Dubee said, echoing a sentiment expressed earlier by manager Charlie Manuel. So maybe we are doing a little projecting here, what with the Nationals in town and Stephen Strasburg on the mound and all of the pundits near and far picking Washington to repeat in the National League East.

Two summers ago, when they were sophomores, Petrick Sanders and Arthur Davis played side by side in the Sonny Hill Future Stars Tournament. But the two rising city hoops stars went their separate ways come fall - Davis to Roman Catholic and Sanders to Frankford. During the season - when 6-foot-5 Sanders was averaging 21 points and 11 rebounds in Public League games and 6-4 Davis repeatedly was racking up more than 20 points in Catholic League games - the two rarely crossed paths.

A glance at the women's basketball rosters of the Big Five schools and Drexel reveals that the coaches have done a fine job of harvesting area talent. Villanova attracted Germantown Academy's Laura Kurz after she began her college career at national power Duke, while Archbishop Carroll's Brooke Cornish returned home after enrolling at Florida in the rugged Southeastern Conference. The exception is Temple, which coach Dawn Staley left in May for South Carolina. The Owls' recruiting agenda has been nationally oriented, which means junior guard LaKeisha Eaddy of Columbia, Md., has the shortest trip home.

The Eagles are making another change on the offensive line, this one just four days before the team's season opener Sunday in St. Louis. Guard Kyle DeVan, whose first practice with the Eagles was Monday, practiced with the starters Wednesday, ahead of rookie Danny Watkins, who has struggled at right guard. Neither coach Andy Reid, DeVan, nor Watkins would confirm the move, or say if it is permanent, but a team source said the change has been made. Wednesday practice lineups generally reflect Sunday's starters.

The town of Al-Hadiz rises from the desert, an insurgent stronghold of dilapidated concrete houses, bombed-out pickup trucks, and civilians screaming as soldiers point guns into their bedrooms. Buildings are marked with Arabic graffiti and AK-47s chatter in the background. But all is not as it seems. Al-Hadiz is in New Mexico. The insurgents are taxpayer-funded actors, some wearing traditional Arab clothing. And the troops are actually firing blanks as they train how to search an Iraqi home.

U.S. Army leaders are preparing to announce as early as today a plan to start relieving exhausted troops in Iraq with thousands of soldiers from U.S.-based units and an additional 10,000 National Guardsmen who will be called to active duty. The deployments will be part of a detailed, two-year plan to make certain that units in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries where the United States has peacekeeping forces are rotated home after one year. Military informants said acting Army Chief of Staff Gen. John Keane would designate both active-duty and Army National Guard units to be placed on the list to deploy to Iraq.

Radnor goaltender Joni Ek used to feel like a living, breathing moving target last season. He would routinely face 40 or 50 shots a game, playing club hockey. After an experience like that, some players might look for another team for which to play. But not Ek, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound junior. He decided to look for another country. In mid-August, Ek decided to get a student visa, move from his hometown of Vaantaa, Finland, and live in the United States as part of a foreign student-exchange program.

New Mexico guard Senque Carey sustained a spinal-cord injury during the Lobos' game against Northwestern State and is unable to move his legs. "He had a spinal-cord injury of some extent," said Bob Schenck, an orthopedic surgeon at the University of New Mexico Hospital, where Carey is hospitalized. Carey appeared to collide with Northwestern State's Byron Allen with 7:41 left in the first half of Monday's game as Allen drove to the basket. Carey barely moved for about 10 minutes while medical personnel tended to him. He was placed in a neck brace and taken out of The Pit on a stretcher.
