The U.S. women's national soccer team defeated Argentina 7-0 in front of 14,608 fans Sunday at Spartan Stadium in San Jose, CA. This came two days after the U.S. team first beat Argentina Friday night in front of a sell- out crowd of over 10,000 at Fullerton, CA. The 14,608 in San Jose is the second-largest non-Olympic crowd in U.S. women's national team history, and the weekend total of 24,707 was a record high for the team (U.S. Soccer). NOTES: In Toronto, Jim Proudfoot writes that the AHL is studying the "possible creation" of a new Canadian division with teams in Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton and Quebec City (TORONTO STAR, 4/28)....Also in Toronto, Frank Zicarelli writes that sources "indicate" that NBA players "are willing to undergo marijuana testing only if every NBA official, coach and front-office worker are subject to the same testing" (TORONTO SUN, 4/28).....UNC junior Antawn Jamison declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft and said that even the possibility of an NBA lockout won't deter him.
