NBA talks stall
NBA labor talks stalled Wednesday after a 21/2-hour meeting in New York, less than a month before a lockout would begin.
"All I can say is that we had a meeting, and we don't have anything else scheduled," NBA deputy commissioner Russ Granik said.
Players association director Billy Hunter said he outlined a new proposal, then offered to extend the terms of the current seven-year agreement that expires June 30. The league turned both offers down.
SEC trying to honeinstant replay
DESTIN, Fla. -- The Southeastern Conference is hoping to improve the Big Ten's successful model for instant replay. The SEC finalized details of replay at its annual spring meetings this week, adopting the same procedures used by the Big Ten last season but opting to use more sophisticated, touch-screen equipment.
Under the Big Ten system, all reviews and reversals came from the replay booth. Calls could be overturned only if there was "indisputable video evidence," and reviewable plays were more or less limited to those involving scoring, fumbles and possession on receptions.
SEC school presidents, chancellors, athletic directors and coaches voted to use the same version as the Big Ten, although final approval of which plays are reviewable will come next week.
*INDIANAPOLIS -- Rookie guard Yolanda Paige, shooting free throws for an injured teammate, made one of two shots as the Indiana Fever held on for a 61-60 victory over the Sacramento Monarchs on Wednesday night.
Tully Bevilaqua was fouled hard by Ticha Penicheiro as she drove for a fast-break layup with 52.4 seconds to play and the score tied 60-60. When Bevilaqua was taken to the training room with an apparent knee sprain, Monarchs coach John Whisenant was allowed to pick any Fever player to shoot the free throws. He chose Paige, but she made one shot.
*WASHINGTON -- Vickie Johnson had 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and the Liberty pulled away with a late run. Johnson went 9-for-12 from the field, and Becky Hammon added 13 points and five assists for the Liberty (1-2) in their first game against longtime coach Richie Adubato, who led New York for 51/2 seasons before he was fired last July.

The meetings lasted from about 11 a.m. until approximately 9:30 p.m., and will continue with a larger group today as the sides try to find common ground on team revenues and how to associate them to a salary cap in a new collective bargaining agreement.
