(END SOT) and the leading rebounder on a team


that is so balanced and so unslefish
that no one scores more than 10 points
a game.

The difference is that Whittinton

also manages to grab at least 10
rebounds a game.

Nine different times this year,
she has posted a rare double-double -
at least 10 points and 10 boards a
game.

KAY YOW

Against the Hokies - she dropped
in 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in
front of a large group of red and white
clad family members and friends from
the Star City. Then at game's end she
found herself getting interviewed on
the ACC television network by none
other than Charlene Curtis - a Roanoke
native and Fleming grad herself.

KHADIJAH



Khadijah left Fleming before her
senior season and finished at Woodrow
Wilson high in Portsmouth. But she
still considers the Star City home.

KHADIJAH

Khadijah's move to Portsmouth
confused many, but she did it to be
close to her dad - who had just been
diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease.
Khadijah's says his situation and

watching her head coach battle breast
cancer for the second time in her life
this season - have made her a different
person.

2000 Most remember Turner as the
Redskins head coach from 1994 and 2000.
During that time in Washington, his
teams won 49 games and lost 59 and made
the playoffs just once. Most of his
career he has been labeled as one of
those guys who is a great assistant,
but not a great head coach. He was 9
and 23 with the Raiders before he fired
in Oakland.

Lynchburg in Red House, you can find a
"Muslims of America" commune, one of
several across the country.

VO-NAT VO-NAT



One of the commune's private
roads is named "Sheikh Gilani SHAKE
gih-LONN-ee Lane." That has some people
upset, because there is a Shiekh Gilani
on the U.S. government's terrorist
list.


Charlotte County Supervisors last
week voted not to rename the road, but
the Christian Action Network plans a
rally tonight to call more attention to
the question.
