Five years ago, the team came to the
star city hoping to make history as one
of the NBA's first minor league teams.

Back then the teams were based in the
south but lately all the expansion has
been westward.

Now, the Dazzle's lease with the city
of Roanoke is up.

City council today heard

recommendations from a recreation task
force on how to best utilize the city's
athletic fields.

The city plans to spend 1-point-5
million dollars on installing synthetic
"sports turf" at both the E.C. Glass
and Heritage High School athletic
fields.

Educators say the new turf will
be safer for athletes to play on and is
much more durable than natural grass.

A similar overhaul at the City

The law would allow employers to

Tonight, Duke's President decided
to suspend the team from play until the
legal ramifications become clearer. At
this time no one has been charged, but
a woman told Durham police she and
another dancer were hired to perform
March 13 at a private off-campus party.
The dancer, who is a student at North
Carolina Central University, told
police she was pulled into a bathroom,
beaten, choked and raped by three men.

The woman, who is black, told
police her alleged attackers were
white. To date, 46 lacrosse players
have had to give investigators a DNA
