Eddie Sutton's 700th victory came where Oklahoma State hadn't won in a while. The 13th-ranked Cowboys beat Texas, 85-80, last night, their first win in Austin since December 1974. But it was the career milestone that had several players carrying Sutton off the court when the game ended. Sutton, the 14th Division I coach to reach the 700-win mark, is 700-275 in his 32 seasons as a head coach at Creighton, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma State. "It means I've been coaching a long time," Sutton said, trying to downplay the achievement.

Before Bob Sutton was even out of college, he was coaching at Michigan under the renowned Bo Schembechler. At 24, he was the defensive coordinator at Western Michigan, and he was 26 when he took a similar position at Illinois. Now 41 and in his second year as head coach at Army, Sutton will send the Cadets into Veterans Stadium on Saturday for their 93d meeting with Navy. Army enters the contest with the same 4-6 record it had a year ago, before the Cadets' season ended with a 24-3 loss to the Midshipmen.

Saved by the bell - or, more accurately, by the thunder, lightning and rain. Just when it looked as if Tiger Woods was not going to mount one of his famous come-from-behind victories in the final round of the 27th Players Championship yesterday, the weather came to his rescue. As Hal Sutton and Woods trudged up the 12th fairway, with Sutton holding a 3-shot lead at 10 under par, a nasty thunderstorm forced an abrupt halt to play at TPC Sawgrass. Sutton, Woods and 18 others who were still on the course will resume their final rounds at 9 a.m. today.

THE REV. DANIEL E. Sutton preached yesterday on a chapter in the Gospel of St. Matthew quoting Jesus: Upon this rock, I will build my church . . . and I will give unto thee the keys to the kingdom of heaven. But before Sutton began - in fact, before he could get to the pulpit at North Philly's Second Pilgrim Baptist Church - his supporters had to cut locks off the church's front gates. Congregants who had tried to lock Sutton out of the church, on 15th Street near Poplar, had called police.

WYLIE WALKER sat yesterday in a basement office at North Philadelphia's Second Pilgrim Baptist Church, where he is financial secretary. His church has filed a lawsuit against its minister, the Rev. Daniel E. Sutton. The church is 98 years old, and many members, like Walker, have been there for decades. Sutton was hired in November 2006. Walker and other congregants filed the suit last month, describing Sutton as "an employee" who had breached his employment contract by signing an agreement to sell the church building and three surrounding parcels for $1.1 million.

A former pro football player works his way through medical school and opens up practice as an orthopedic surgeon. Given his background, his knowledge and his understanding of players, wouldn't he make an ideal team physician? The Los Angeles Rams thought so. And that's why they once offered the job to Dr. Edward Sutton, a five-year NFL veteran. Sutton's answer? "No way. " Sutton, a two-way halfback for three clubs from 1957 through 1961, said he was offered the team physician job by former Los Angeles Rams owner Carroll Rosenbloom in the mid-'70s.

Drivers will soon be prohibited from making a left turn south on Durham Road at the Trenton Road intersection in Middletown Township. The intersection has been the site of backups in recent months that have blocked driveways along Durham Road and extended across the Interstate 95 interchange. "We've had a lot of complaints since the present light was installed," said Middletown Township manager John J. Burke. Middletown Township Police Lieutenant Mort Sutton presented the alternatives for traffic patterning to the Board of Supervisors during a work session Tuesday night.

It's a bit of a struggle to remember but, given a few moments, Jan Sutton can recall the birthdates of her two toddlers. One girl was born on Oct. 19, 1983, she said finally, and the other on Dec. 19, 1984. "I mean, it's like I don't think of them as my children," the 37-year-old mother said with a smile. "I mean, my kids' birthdays I never forget. " Her kids, the ones she has reared, are 12 and 10 now, and live with her in San Diego. The others, the toddlers, were handed over at birth to other women, women married to the men who fathered the girls through artificial insemination.

Tomorrow, ballot boxes used in the May 14 election that returned DC33 President James Sutton for another term will be opened at the AFSCME International headquarters in Washington. Rival Pete Matthews claims Sutton stole the election by having extra ballots printed and stuffed into ballot boxes.

J. R. Reid, North Carolina's leading scorer, has been suspended for today's NCAA second-round game against UCLA for violating curfew on Friday night.

R. and Rodney will be members of our squad," Smith said in a statement released by Rick Brewer, the school's sports information director.
