Michael Jordan scored 45 points and the Chicago Bulls made a clean sweep of the Orlando Magic with a 106-101 victory and 4-0 ending in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals series on Sunday. Chicago advances to the NBA Finals where it will meet the winner of the Seattle-Utah series in the Western Conference finals. The Sonics, leading 3-1, can wrap up the series tonight at home. Jordan, who last year failed to take his team to the NBA championship game after a minor league baseball stint, was ready to get revenge on the Magic, which had eliminated the Bulls in the 1995 playoffs. “Sometimes it’s very ironic the way things happen,” said Jordan, who hit 16 of 23 shots and frustrated the Magic through the entire series. “We saw a focus, we saw a challenge, we stepped in front and we faced it and we conquered.

PARIS (AP)—On a dreary, rainy opening day, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi and Mon* ica Seles overcame injury worries, tricky opponents and emotional nxmnts to move safely into the second round of the French Open. Sampras, the men's top seed, beat Sweden’s Magnus Gustafsson 6-1,7-5,7-6 (7-5) for his first victory on day this year, setting up a second-round clash against two-time champion Sergi Bruguera of Spain. Agassi, No. 3, received a warning and a point penalty for audible obscenities before taking advantage of a rain delay to subdue Spanish qualifier Jacobo Diaz, 6-1,6-7 (9-7), 6-4,6-4. Seles, playing her first French Open since her stabbing in Germany three years ago, dedicated Court A to 1920s French star Suzanne Lenglen. She then returned to the same court, sore shoulder and all, and easily beat French wild card Caroline Dhenin 6-1,6-1. Loo Smith hooded to Rods MIAMI (AP) — Career saves leader Lee Smith is bound for the Cincinnati Reds' bullpen, but not as a replacement for closer Jeff Brantley Smith, who has 471 saves, was traded to I the Reds—his seventh team—by the QbR* i fomia Angels for lefthander Chuck McElroy.

Texas bowed out of the baseball NCAA regional it hosted on Saturday, then, on Sunday, Texas Tech was eliminated in the semifinal of its home-field regional and Rice came up IO runs shy of a first College World Series trip. In tennis, Texas Christian's unseeded tandem of Ashley Fisher and Jason Wfcir-Smith reached the men’s finals before losing in three sets, while Texas’ sixth-ranked duo of Cristina Moros and Farley Taylor took only four games in losing the women’s finals. In women’s golf, a missed 40-foot putt on die 18th hole Sunday left Texas a stroke shy of forcing a three-way tie, leaving the Lady Longhorns third. Kelli Kuehne finished ninth, IO strokes out of first. Each defeat seemed tinged with die same sorrow and bitterness (hat brought the league to within weeks of being broken up. On July I, Texas, Texas AAM, Texas Tech and Baylor will officially join the Big Eight to form the Big 12; TCU, Southern Methodist and Rice will be pan of the Western Athletic Conference; and Houston will join Conference USA. The Owls got off to a good start Sunday by eliminating defending national champion Cal State-Fullerton, which had eliminated Rice en route to last year’s title. But Wichita State led 9-0 midway through the fourth before Rice closed within 9-6 in the bottom of the fourth and fifth. The Shockers scored seven more runs while shutting out the Owls over the final four innings. Defeat came even more painfully for the Red Raiders. Playing before the largest crowd ever at Dan Law Field, Tech was an out away from a 10-7 victory over top-ranked and top-seeded USG only to allow six straight runs, the final three on a full-count homer by Jeff Inglin. “What makes this so disappointing is I feel we let our fans down,” Red Raiders coach Larry Hays said.

The Pirates, losers of seven of eight and 16of 20, tried to be more aggressive in response to manager Jim Ley-land’s postgame blowup Sunday.
