Jerry Rice vs. June Jones
in benefit hoops

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice and several NFL players will compete in Rice's 127 Foundation benefit basketball game at 7 tonight at Blaisdell Arena.

Challenging the pros is Team Hawaii, coached by University of Hawaii head football coach June Jones. Team Hawaii consists of Russ Francis, Sid Fernandez and several former UH players, including Erin Galloway and Tim Sheppard.

The NFL roster includes Roger Craig, Terrell Owens and J.J. Stokes. The event includes an autograph session and will benefit several Hawaii charities.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children ages 4-12.

Mili signs with Seahawks

Itula Mili has signed a one-year free-agent contract that will give him a fourth season as a Seattle Seahawks tight end.

The pact is worth $400,000, according to his agent, Brian Treggs.

Treggs said that Mili was an exclusive free agent this year, restricting him to negotiations with Seattle. He said next season Mili will be a restricted free agent, allowing him to entertain other offers.

Mili had five receptions for 28 yards and one touchdown last season. Taken with the 11th pick in the sixth round of the 1997 college draft, Mili missed his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered in his final season at BYU.

Dorian out, Robb hurt

Defending champion Shane Dorian of Hawaii was eliminated in the 2000 Rip Curl Pro surfing contest by tour rookie Ben Bourgeois at Victoria's Bells Beach, Australia today.

Hawaii's Kalani Robb injured his knee and didn't compete, but his opponent, Hawaii's Shawn Sutton, moved into round three.

Stanford's Wayne loses

Punahou graduate Justin Wayne lost for only the second time this season as Stanford fell to Southern Cal, 7-3, in a Pac-10 baseball game yesterday in Los Angeles.

Wayne (9-2) allowed nine hits and six runs in five innings. His career record fell to 25-3.
