LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Ronald Roberts Jr. came to the HP Field House at ESPN's Wide World of Sports ready to play Sunday. And that was a good thing. During a lethargic start for St. Joseph's in the fifth-place game at the Old Spice Classic, Roberts was inspired, and his energy eventually carried over to the rest of his team.

Everything about Ryan Leaf is big. Big hands. Big head. Big mouth. Leaf admits it. "I've been," he says, "kind of a jerk in my past. " Jerk with a smirk - that's what opponents have said about Leaf, who is a big trash-talker during football games, after football games, sometimes even before football games. Leaf has always loved to make big predictions about himself and whatever team he is commanding. Now, this year, in one sparkling football season, he has backed up all the talk.

Until last month, U.S. Rep. Linda Smith was considered the most formidable Republican in Washington state. Elected in 1994 on a write-in vote, she had been courted by Ross Perot as a running mate. When she decided to seek a second term representing southwest Washington, rather than run for governor, no one of stature dared challenge her. Along came Brian Baird, an unknown clinical psychology professor whose political resume was limited to ringing doorbells for other candidates and heading a local Sierra Club chapter.

Riding a wave of momentum, endorsements, and sky-high poll numbers, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry campaigned yesterday in Michigan, where he is expected to win resoundingly today in the state's Democratic Party caucuses. Kerry, who has won seven of nine primaries or caucuses to emerge as the Democratic presidential front-runner, also is poised for wins in Washington state today and in Maine tomorrow. He campaigned this week in all three states, where 228 delegates are at stake, including 128 in Michigan.

The nation's eyes will be on the State of Washington tomorrow as it votes on the toughest term-limit measure yet devised. Initiative 553 is merciless. It covers every legislator, federal and state, and doesn't "grandfather" a single one. If it's passed and survives the predictable legal challenges, U.S. House Speaker Tom Foley and a majority of the congressional delegation would have to step down by 1994. Washington's vaunted congressional seniority wouldn't be the only victim.

A deal to transfer Thomas Trantino from a Camden halfway house to Washington state has fallen apart, at least for now, because of the slaying of a police officer there. James E. Thatcher of the Washington Department of Corrections said the killing of a police officer in Des Moines, Wash., about 30 miles from the capital of Olympia, had forced the decision. "It sensitized the local law enforcement community to some extent," he said. Trantino was convicted of killing two police officers in a bar in Lodi, Bergen County, in 1963 and served almost 38 years in prison.

A week before the biggest primary contest in American history, Texas Gov. George W. Bush swept three Republican presidential contests yesterday, defeating Arizona Sen. John McCain from conservative Virginia to independent-minded Washington state. Bush carried Virginia by 53 to 44 percent over McCain. In largely uncontested precinct caucuses in North Dakota, he won the support of participants by a 76-19 margin. In Washington, Bush's lead among Republican voters was so commanding that he was declared the winner in early returns.

The library has one wall painted bright yellow, because that was Jamie Soukup Reid's favorite color, and six chess sets, because she loved and taught the challenges of the game. Among its 6,000 books are some of her personal favorites, like Holes and To Kill a Mockingbird , and others that she shared with her students. On a table stands a doll of Ms. Frizzle, the eccentric flame-haired teacher in The Magic School Bus . Reid so loved those stories that she dressed as Ms. Frizzle for Halloween.

She got married in a hall that was once a library reading room, surrounded by rows of books. Which was no surprise. Jamie Soukup Reid loved and lived in books. The characters wandered across the page and up into her consciousness: Leopold Bloom traversing Dublin in Ulysses , Katniss Everdeen fighting dictatorship in The Hunger Games , Esperanza Cordero overcoming poverty in The House on Mango Street . And when Reid died, suddenly and young, her friends claimed selections from her shelves as mourning tokens, believing that in the space where Jamie's hand had crossed a page, they might for a moment meet again.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - This was a little more like it for Langston Galloway. Pressing Thursday night against his hometown LSU in the opener of the Old Spice Classic, the Baton Rouge, La., product had a tough night, scoring only eight points. Last night in a consolation-bracket matchup against Siena, Galloway was more like himself. He buried shots with confidence and pushed the ball up the floor, as Saint Joseph's head coach Phil Martelli has come to expect, and he led the Hawks to a 78-66 victory that was not as close as the final margin.

Creighton and its Player of the Year candidate Doug McDermott will be on Hawk Hill. Drexel also will be at Hagan. The Hawks will be at Temple (no longer in the A-10, remember) and play Penn at the Palestra.
