Saturday, February 26, 2005; Page D02

Pat Satalin scored 16 points, including five free throws in the final 32 seconds, to lift host Catholic to a 79-64 victory over Marymount last night in the semifinals of the Capital Athletic Conference men's tournament.

The Cardinals (18-8) will play at York, Pa. (24-2) tomorrow at 2 p.m. in search of their eighth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Division III tournament.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: Michelle Campbell scored 17 points, and Matee Ajavon and Chelsea Newton had 14 each as No. 9 Rutgers (22-5, 13-2 Big East) beat host Pittsburgh, 63-42.

The Scarlet Knights have won seven in a row and 17 in 20 games to move within one victory of the conference's regular season title.

SKIING: Sweden's Anja Paerson won a super giant slalom in San Sicario, Italy, to inaugurate the course for next year's Turin Olympics.

Paerson boosted her lead in the overall standings and showed her win in the super-G at last month's world championships was no fluke. She covered the Fraiteve Olympique course in 1 minute 31.85 seconds. . . .

World Cup leader Janne Ahonen of Finland won the large-hill ski jump in Oberstdorf, Germany, for the fifth gold medal of his career at the world championships.

Ahonen made two near-perfect jumps of more than 141 meters to win with 313.2 points.

HOCKEY: The Walt Disney Co. agreed to sell the Anaheim Mighty Ducks to billionaire Henry Samueli and his wife Susan.

Samueli's company operates the Arrowhead Pond, the Mighty Ducks' home arena.

Despite the ongoing lockout that forced the cancellation of the hockey season, the pending sale is not expected to be different than others in the past.

• FIGURE SKATING: Tiffany Scott and Philip Dulebohn, the 2003 U.S. pairs champions, have ended their partnership after eight years of competitive skating. Dulebohn, of Silver Spring, has retired; Scott is undecided on her future plans.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Adarius Bowman and Isaiah Thomas, suspended indefinitely from North Carolina's football team last fall after being cited for marijuana possession, are no longer Tar Heels.

The school did not specify whether they left on their own or were dismissed, citing privacy rights. But team spokesman Kevin Best said both remain enrolled.

TENNIS: Top-seeded Amelie Mauresmo lost a chance to claim the No. 1 ranking when she was upset by Australian Alicia Molik in the rain-marred semifinals of the Qatar Open in Doha, Qatar.

The French world No. 2 was one win away from passing top-ranked American Lindsay Davenport. But the fourth-seeded Molik won, 7-6 (13-11), 6-1.

SOCCER: The referee at the center of Germany's game-fixing scandal was released from prison but remains under investigation.

Robert Hoyzer was arrested two weeks ago because authorities feared he would flee the country.
