Matt Doherty is the kind of guy who cries at movies. He doesn't even have to be sitting in a darkened theater or at home. He doesn't need to be watching a particularly heart-tugging flick. Take the time "The Patriot" was being shown on the North Carolina team bus. "There was a scene where Mel Gibson's son gets killed and I started thinking about my own son," Doherty said earlier this week. "I get emotional pretty quickly." Nor does he have to be watching a movie at all. It happened when Doherty was introduced as the new coach of the Tar Heels last summer, succeeding a suddenly retired Bill Guthridge.

Each spring for the last 10 years, Dean Smith would tell longtime assistant Bill Guthridge to be ready to take over just in case the legendary North Carolina basketball coach couldn't relight the competitive fires for the coming season and decided to retire.And each fall, Smith would find a way to rekindle the passion and return to the bench."He always got his batteries charged," Guthridge said yesterday. "It's all the little things that wore him out. I think he still loves coaching and teaching.

Dean Smith is hating this. Hating that North Carolina's plan to hire Roy Williams backfired. Hating that the process is now out in the open. Hating that he must now play favorites in a way that he never did as coach. The decision on Bill Guthridge's replacement doesn't belong to Smith alone, but the former North Carolina coach is again serving as kingmaker, conducting interviews with UNC athletic director Dick Baddour. The suspicion here is that he plotted the line of succession, just as he plotted it when he resigned as coach on Oct. 9, 1997.

When Arizona won the national championship last year in Indianapolis, college coaches all over the country began reshaping their teams, if not their philosophies, in looking for quickness in the frontcourt as well as the backcourt.They still might if North Carolina or Kentucky wins this year.But what happens if it's Utah or Stanford?There will be more than just a national championship at stake when the Final Four heads to the Alamodome Saturday. There will be more than just a battle between the two winningest programs in college basketball history and two West Coast upstarts.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bobby Cremins couldn't pronounce his name. The public address announcer needed a little practice in drawing out the 10 letters that make up the 6-foot-10 North Carolina reserve forward's last name. But it didn't matter. Brian Bersticker received a standing ovation last night when he walked off the court with 1: 24 left in the game and his third-seeded Tar Heels on the way to a 78-49 victory over sixth-seeded Georgia Tech in the ACC tournament quarterfinals.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- On a day when North Carolina's favorite son ended his singular basketball career, Maryland's veterans made history of their own on the Tar Heels' turf. Obinna Ekezie, Laron Profit and Terrell Stokes joined a select group last night, when No. 5 Maryland beat No. 9 North Carolina, 89-76, before 21,572 at the Smith Center. The Terps overcame severe front-line foul trouble with a 3-2 zone and used a 12-2 spurt to turn a tenuous 67-63 lead into a romp. It was Maryland's third win in its past four trips to North Carolina, and the hat trick for the seniors was something that had been accomplished only by other Tobacco Road rivals, and then only once since 1963.
