First Kenyon Martin. Now Tamika Catchings. The Pyramid hasn't been kind to the Naismith players of the year this month. But unlike the Cincinnati men's team, which lost to Saint Louis in the Conference USA tournament after its superstar broke his leg, the Tennessee women withstood an unsettling injury to their top star to win their 32d game of the season. Popular opinion had Cincinnati, pre-Martin injury, advancing to the Final Four of the men's NCAA tournament. By beating Texas Tech, 57-44, last night, the Vols did what the Bearcats couldn't - meet expectations.

Tamika Catchings backed up the WNBA Rookie of the Year award with a dominating performance in her first playoff game.

Losing rookie Tamika Catchings was too much for the Indiana Fever. Catchings suffered a concussion, and the Fever fell to the visiting Miami Sol, 68-62, last night. Her availability for Monday's All-Star Game is uncertain. Catchings fell to the court when the elbow of Miami's Ruth Riley landed on her nose. The three officials did not see the play and let the game continue. Riley got the ball and scored a layup. "Obviously it was an accident. I feel horrible about it," Riley said.

A PERSON with knowledge of the plans said yesterday that the NBA will cancel training camps and some preseason games today after failing to reach a new labor deal with its players. Training camps were expected to begin Oct. 3. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league had yet to announce its plans. The cancelations became unavoidable after another meeting between owners and players yesterday failed to end the lockout.

Writhing on the floor, Tamika Catchings shrieked in agony, but her father, his long legs crossed in front of him as he sat in the stands, did not move. He didn't wince as his daughter lay on her back, her stellar season in jeopardy, although everyone else in the Memphis Pyramid on Monday was breathless, fearing that Tennessee's star forward had suffered a serious ankle injury. Harvey Catchings knew better. His daughter wanted to go to Philadelphia for the Final Four almost as badly as he did, and nothing, certainly not a sprained ankle, would keep her from leading the Volunteers past Texas Tech to get there.

INDIANAPOLIS - Shavonte Zellous scored a career-high 30 points to help the Indiana Fever beat the Minnesota Lynx, 76-59, in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals. Tamika Catchings added 17 points and Erlana Larkins had 10 points and 15 rebounds for the Fever, who took a two-games-to-one lead in the series and can clinch their first WNBA title at home Sunday night. Rebekkah Brunson, who scored 12 points, was the only Minnesota player to reach double figures. After being fined for a tantrum in Game 2, Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve spent most of the second half seated quietly with her hand on her chin.

MORE OFFENSIVE fireworks were on display at the basketball venue - this time courtesy of the U.S. women. The Americans tied their Olympic scoring mark in a 114-66 rout of China on Sunday and set a couple of other U.S. records along the way. Just days after the U.S. men shattered the Olympic record for points in a game in a 156-73 win over Nigeria, the women put on their own show. "We've got a lot of good offensive players," said U.S. coach Geno Auriemma. "When everything is clicking and they're in sync and the ball's moving like it was today, we're a fun team to watch and hopefully everyone who was watching enjoyed it. " Diana Taurasi scored 22 as the women matched the 114 points they scored against Spain in 1992, and fell well short of the women's Olympic mark of 128 points set by Brazil in 2004.

The two sisters with the twin smiles and the practice clothes draped over their long, lanky bodies embraced yesterday in the hallway of Vanderbilt's Memorial Gymnasium amid a crowd of cameras and microphones. They hadn't seen each other since Christmas, and by the way they smiled so wide and clinched so hard, most could tell they had missed each other greatly. Tamika Catchings, Tennessee's star freshman guard/forward, and Tauja Catchings, Illinois' sophomore standout at forward, were locked together - as they had been for most of their lives until their basketball fortunes took them apart.
