ESPN The Miami Heat played without :00 Shaquille O'Neal tonight in game three
of the Eastern Conference semi-finals.

But while Shaq was out that meant
Alonzo Mourning was in. And the
Chesapeake native would throw down 14
points and grab 13 rebounds in 35
minutes.

Four other Miami players
including Eddie Jones hit in double
figures as Miami takes a commanding 3
games to none lead in the series.

Albemarle Co. police say Elton
Brown - one of UVa's basketball

captains last season - has been
arrested on a misdemeanor gun charge.

Brown was charged Wednesday with
brandishing a firearm outside of
Charlottesville's Fashion Square mall.
Sergeant Pam Greenwood says Brown was
released on $15-hundred dollars bond.
The incident apparently stemmed from a
disagreement over a woman that has been
ongoing since back in January.

Warthogs vs. Avalanche Once again a little breeze was :00 blowing at the ballpark this evening.

Salem took a 4-to-3 lead into the
6th inning, but it was there the
visitors made a move. Noah Hall hits
one deep to left field and in the
process drives home Mike Myers. It's
now 5-to-4.

The Warthogs would add three in
the 7th as Myers drives one to right
field.

Two runs come in on the hit and Avs
gift wrap an insurance run with the
throwing error *CG final Winston-Salem that allows Myers to cross the plate, 8 as well.
