Some athletes make their college decisions in sealed-off bedrooms, shortly after pulling out their hair. Others do so at the kitchen table, surrounded by friends and family. Last night, star lineman Ray Kane, of Archbishop Carroll, announced his final verdict in a car. "I went down to see the Villanova-Pitt basketball game at the Spectrum," Kane said. "I'd been doing a lot of thinking. On the way home, I turned to my father and said, 'I'm going to Virginia.' " The 6-4, 240-pound Kane, who played full time at defensive tackle and part time at offensive tackle, last month was named Lineman of the Year in connection with the Daily News All-Scholastic Football Team.

Already in tune with the future, Trey Womack doesn't think he will have a problem catching up with the college beat. Womack, a Malvern Prep senior wide receiver and cornerback from Springfield, Delaware County, has orally committed to attend Virginia on a football scholarship. Primarily recruited as a defensive back, Womack said last night that, because of his 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash, the Cavaliers have told him that he might play other positions in the future. "I think I could play some wide receiver there," Womack said.

Second-ranked Virginia went down to the wire with No. 14 Stephen F. Austin at University Hall in a second-round NCAA women's Midwest Regional contest yesterday, but unlike some other notable teams that have already fallen, the Cavaliers managed to land on their feet in the final seconds. The play that saved Virginia (28-2) from joining No. 1 Penn State, No. 5 Purdue and No. 8 Louisiana State on the pile of also-rans in this year's event occurred with four seconds to play, when Dobbins High graduate Dawn Staley penetrated and dished off to 6-foot-5 Heather Burge, who made a shot from underneath the basket to give the Cavaliers a 74-72 victory.

Maryland coach Chris Weller has waited 17 years to see Cole Fieldhouse filled to capacity for a women's basketball game, and last night she saw her dream come true. Unfortunately for Weller and most of the standing-room-only crowd of more than 14,500, they didn't get what they wanted, but they came ever so close. The top-ranked Terrapins (20-2 overall, 10-1 conference) were nipped by second-ranked Virginia, 75-74, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game that gave the Cavaliers revenge for Maryland's 67-65 upset of Virginia in Charlottesville last month when the Cavs held the No. 1 ranking.
