Cooper entered the game with 1,987 career points. A 3-pointer with 13:25 to play put her over 2,(IOO for her career. She finished with 19, putting her at 2,006. Swoopes got the Comets started in the first half, and the defending champions led 40-33 at halftime. They built a 66-50 lead with 10:28 to play before the Liberty made their final charge with a 10-0 run, cutting the margin to 66-60 with 7:44 left. But the Comets recovered before a sellout crowd of 16,285. Swoopes also had three blocked shots and six rebounds. Tamika Whitmore led the Liberty with 15 points, while Sue Wicks had 14. The Comets started 2-for-13 from the field before Swoopes heated up with 15 first-half points and rallied the Comets to the half time lead, their biggest to that point. Trailing 21-15, the Comets went on a 13-2 run with Swoopes scoring nine consecutive points with a steal and layup, two free throws, a 3-pointer and two more free throws. The game was a rematch of the 1999 WNBA championship series. The Comets beat the Liberty 59-47 last Sept. 5 for their third straight WNBA championship. New York guard Teresa Weatherspoon’s 50-foot shot at the buzzer in Game 2 gave the Liberty a 68-67 victory and forced the series to the third game. %Woods wins Memorial ***    By    Doug    Ferguson AP Golf Writer pUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Tiger Woods broke new ground Monday in the Memorial. Along with successfully defending a title for the fif$t time in IO tries, and becoming the first repeat champion in the 25-year history of the Memorial, Wpods managed to win with hardly any fist pumps and even fewer dramatics. Not that it mattered. And not that he didn’t try. Playing the kind of golf that has left even tournament host Jack Nicklaus shaking his head, Woods cruised to his 19th PGA Tour victory with a 2-under IU to win the rain-delayed Memorial by five shots, at 269. “I needed to shoot a good front nine to increase my lead and make sure the guys didn’t have a chance,” said Woods, who made three birdies inside 4 feet on the front. ^Lmie Els and Justin Leonard wound up tied for first in the B-Flight. Bls got to within four strokes before his lone bogey in.* round of 7-under 65. Leonard holed a lob wedge from 81 yards for eagle on No. 5 in his round of 68, giving him his best finish since a tie for third in the Canadian Open last September. “This is like tying for first in the other tournament going on,” Leonard said. Said Els: “If it wasn’t for Tiger, I’d be in good position.” But Woods made his tee time, and the rest of a cool, gray day at Muirfield Village quickly lost its suspense. The only question was the margin of victory. Woods, who began the final round with a six-stroke lead, squandered a chance to break Tom Lehman’s tournament scoring record by failing to make birdie on any of the par 5s. Needing a par on the 18th to tie Lehman^ mark of 268, Woods blasted a 7-iron from 156 yards so far over the 18th green that it bounced off the cart path and went 20 yards up the hill, finishing closer to the clubhouse than the green. He wound up with a bogey. “That was one of the worst shots I’ve ever seen,” Woods said. “I’ve played in many pro-ams, but wow! I definitely need some work.” ti Others might beg to differ. Woods won for the 11th time in his last 20 tour WOODS events, and has finished out of the top IO just twice in his last 25 tournaments around the world. He joined Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw with 19 career victories on the PGA Tour. Woods finished at 269 and won $558,000, giving him more than $4.1 million this year — already the second highest in PGA Tour history behind his ’99 season — and making him the first player to go over $15 million in career earnings. “In his own mind, he can get better,” Els said. “In everyone else’s mind, he’s as good as we want him to play.” Mike Weir had a 69 to finish fourth at 276, boosting his bid to become the first Canadian to make the Presidents Cup team. Steve Lowery, paired with Woods and trying to make up six shots, instead had a 73 and was at 278 along with Paul Azinger (66) and Steve Flesch (70), who earned enough money to qualify for the British Open. That’s about what the final round amounted to — consolation prizes. Woods won for the fourth time this year, giving him 12 victories over the past two seasons, with the second half of 2000 still to come. The last player to win this much was Nicklaus, who had 14 victories in the 1972 and ’73 seasons. The final round was about as easy as it comes. The closest anyone came to Woods was when Els birdied the 15th get to 15 under, and Woods made his only bogey' at the 13th to drop to 19 under. But Woods answered with a birdie on his next hole; Els bogeyed the par-3 16th and order was restored. Not that anybody was holding their breath. Woods is now 17-2 worldwide in tournaments where he has held at least a share of the 54-hole lead, and the six-stroke advantage at the start of the final round was his largest since his nine-stroke lead in the 1997 Masters. For the second year in a row, Woods will go into the US. Open on a winning note. He made a gallant bid to win at Pinehurst No. 2 last year, missing a short putt on the 17th, and wound up two strokes behind Payne Stewart. Sampras flops again at French By Steve Wilstein AP Tennis Writer PARIS (AP) — Head down, shoulders slumped, legs heavy, Pete Sampras shuffled away from the French Open as he has year after year, frustrated, disappointed, yet doggedly vowing to try again for as long as he plays. This is where Sampras goes each spring in search of a personal validation, proof that he can win on clay and capture the Grand Slam title that keeps getting away. Each year he leaves early, the victim of more punishment. SAMPRAS The beating came this time in the first round Monday against Australia’s Mark Philippoussis, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 8-6, and it was all the more HIW    liiuiw painful to the No. 2 Sampras again, this match between serving titans ended in the most ignoble way at 8:06 p.m., when Sampras double-faulted on match point. Ever the stranger in a strange land at Roland Garros, Sampras had asked the umpire at 6-6 in the fifth set whether they play a tiebreaker now. No, the umpire said, no tiebreaker. At the French, unlike the U.S. Open, the fifth set is played out in games. Sampras never won another point. He watched Philippoussis serve his 23rd ace in taking a 7-6 lead at love before Sampras fell at love in the final game. Sampras looked the picture of misery and weariness at the end, though he denied that fatigue was a factor. WELLS FARGO With our 7-month CD, you get a great rate and a little extra.
