COLLEGE PARK -- North Carolina began last week looking for a go-to guy.The Tar Heels have found him, and his name is Antawn Jamison.Jamison scored 26 points in a rout of North Carolina State in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener, and the 6-foot-8 freshman was even bigger last night, getting the last two of his game-high 31 points at the buzzer in overtime, as the Tar Heels knocked off Maryland, 88-86, at Cole Field House.The Tar Heels were supposed to slide back to the middle of the pack in the ACC after the early departures of Rasheed Wallace and Jerry Stackhouse to the NBA, but North Carolina's prospects look stronger with each game that Jamison plays.

WASHINGTON - Ernie Grunfeld traces the success of the Washington Wizards this season back to opening night in Memphis. Against a team that was the biggest surprise of the NBA a year ago, the Wizards played without three starters, fell behind by 18 points - and won. "It showed that we were going to compete," Grunfeld, in his second season as the team's president of basketball operations, said recently. The first of a league-high 10 victories coming back from double-digit deficits was more than the impetus for the franchise's best record at the All-Star break in 25 years.

WASHINGTON - When the word filtered out last week that he had been traded to the Washington Wizards, Antawn Jamison just happened to be standing next to one of his new teammates, center Brendan Haywood, in a Chapel Hill, N.C., sports bar. And since the two are part of the North Carolina basketball fraternity, playing together for one year, Jamison is expecting a "Carolina discount" when he approaches Haywood to surrender No. 33. That's the number Jamison...

WASHINGTON - The trade last summer for forward Antawn Jamison and the free-agent signing the previous year of point guard Gilbert Arenas have transformed one of the NBA's most laughable franchises into one of the league's most improved teams this season. Those transactions also accomplished something for these two members of the Washington Wizards: Coming to play here turned them into All-Stars for the first time in their pro careers. Jamison, 28, and Arenas, 23, were named yesterday among the seven reserves on the Eastern Conference team for this year's All-Star Game, which will be played Feb. 20 at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

SAN ANTONIO - As North Carolina's Antawn Jamison was leaving the court at the Alamodome after last night's 65-59 loss to Utah in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament, the junior All-American kissed the court.To some, it was a sign that Jamison was putting his college career behind him.Jamison said he had something else in mind."I might not have the opportunity to play in the Final Four again," said Jamison, who finished with 14 points on 7-for-19 shooting, to go along with 12 rebounds. I don't think was a sign of my college career being over.

Wake Forest All-America center Tim Duncan is still suffering from a stomach virus, has lost weight and strength and did not practice yesterday.Point guard Tony Rutland practiced, but will wear a brace to protect a sprained knee ligament while trying to handle Texas' frenzied defensive pressure.So, the Atlantic Coast Conference champions figure to face a handful of trouble today in a Midwest Regional second-round game in Milwaukee."I just sent some potato salad to Tim's room," joked Texas coach Tom Penders.

Amid rumors of pre-NBA draft deals involving Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis and Shaquille O'Neal, the Washington Wizards reportedly pulled off the first major trade of the offseason last night, sending veterans Jerry Stackhouse and Christian Laettner, as well as the fifth overall pick in tonight's league draft, to the Dallas Mavericks for forward Antawn Jamison. The deal, first reported by ESPN.com and later by the Associated Press through an anonymous source, would strengthen Washington's frontcourt by adding Jamison, the NBA's Sixth Man winner last season, while reportedly placing Dallas in position to obtain O'Neal.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- If there is any fear that his top-ranked Tar Heels might trip over their press clippings in today's opening round of the NCAA East Regional against 16th-seeded Navy, a 28-point underdog, North Carolina coach Bill Guthridge needs to mention only one word: Fairfield.It was in this same situation last year that the Tar Heels found themselves in an unexpected dogfight with Fairfield. The Stags, packing in their defense to neutralize Antawn Jamison and forcing North Carolina to score from the perimeter, were in contention until the closing minutes before the Tar Heels squeaked by, 82-74.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Playing on cruise control for the first half, top-ranked North Carolina and All-America forward Antawn Jamison turned up the heat in the second half to breeze to an 88-52 victory over Navy in the opening round of the NCAA East Regional yesterday.By winning, the Tar Heels set up their first meeting with North Carolina-Charlotte, which defeated Illinois-Chicago, 77-62.The Midshipmen (19-11), seeded 16th, might still have harbored visions of staging a miracle, trailing 51-41 with 12: 56 remaining.

WASHINGTON - As Golden State Warriors teammates during the 2001-2002 season, Antawn Jamison, Larry Hughes and rookie Gilbert Arenas were supposed to turn one of the NBA's perennial doormats into a playoff team. That never happened, and all three went elsewhere. Eventually, elsewhere became the Washington Wizards. Hughes, who was replaced as Golden State's starting point guard by Arenas toward the end of that season, was the first to sign as a free agent with the Wizards in 2002. Arenas, who in his second year with the Warriors was named the league's most improved player on what became the NBA's most improved team, came to Washington before last season after signing a six-year, $65 million contract.

COLLEGE PARK -- North Carolina freshman Antawn Jamison turned Dante Calabria's desperation pass into an improbable, game-winning basket last night to beat Maryland in overtime, 88-86, at Cole Field House.The game-winner came out of a scramble for the ball under the Carolina basket with the final seconds counting down.Carolina's Jeff McInnis had missed a short jumper in the lane, and several players wrestled for the ball on the floor. But it was Calabria who came up with it, ricocheted it off the backboard and into the hands of Jamison, who scored with the putback.
