          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.
     Although he has until a week before the Draft to change his
     mind, Jamison said, "I decided to leave and I'm going to
     stick with leaving.  No matter what happens, there's no
     turning back now" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 4/28).
