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).
