Being No. 2 is suiting Scott McClain just fine.Shifted to the second spot in the Rochester batting order, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound third baseman responded with his hottest streak of the year, hitting in 13 straight games and batting .410 over 14."I felt he needed a new challenge," said Red Wings manager Marv Foley, who has instituted an odd lineup that includes his catcher (Gregg Zaun) leading off and his designated hitter (Billy Owens) in the ninth spot.McClain, smooth at third base despite his size, had hovered around .260 most of the season, but the surge brought him to .285.

COLLEGE PARK -- The University of Richmond has played the part of Cinderella before in the National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball tournament, but never as it did last night.And never as anyone has since the field was expanded to 64 teams six years ago. The Spiders became the first No. 15 seed to beat a second seed when they upset Big East champion Syracuse, 73-69, in the opening round of the East Regional at Cole Field House.After Richmond (22-8) blew the front end of two one-and-ones in the last four minutes, and nearly a 10-point lead along with it, a pair of free throws by freshman guard Eugene Burroughs with 21 seconds left gave the Spiders a 72-69 lead.

NEW YORK -- It was the hottest debate in the NBA draft, and the New Jersey Nets went with their hearts, not their heads. Billy Owens was the logical No. 2 selection, Kenny Anderson the magical one. The beauty of the NBA is that magic almost always wins.The moment Anderson was selected, his mother Joan burst into tears and 7,000 fans at Madison Square Garden leaped for the stars. Anderson does that to people in a way Billy Owens never will. That's why the Nets ignored their best instincts and dared to dream.

Simply because he stood 7 feet 6 and was second pick of the 1993 NBA draft, Shawn Bradley was given an eight-year, $44.2 million contract by the Philadelphia 76ers. Because he was the 30th pick of the second round of that same draft, Gheorghe Muresan, 7-7, had to struggle to make the Washington Bullets before earning a one-year contract at the rookie minimum of $150,000.When Bullets general manager John Nash said during training camp that he wouldn't trade Muresan -- still a project -- for Bradley, there were chuckles.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Bill Fitch, coach of the New Jersey Nets, is a bright, engaging man who knows a little something about his business. He won an NBA title in Boston in 1981 and almost did it in Houston five years later. He has twice been named Coach of the Year, has coached more than 800 pro victories and has been fired three times.So when the media hubbub began here earlier this week about Fitch's imminent departure in favor of Jim Valvano, the &r 57-year-old Fitch could only offer perspective.

The National Basketball Association collective bargaining agreement expires in 1994, but battle lines are already being drawn over the salary cap and escalating rookie salaries.General managers were particularly peeved this season when six of the league's 11 lottery choices were not with their respective teams on opening night. It was not until last week that two of the selections -- center Luc Longley of Minnesota (seventh) and forward Brian Williams of Orlando (10th) -- came to terms.The four top picks -- forward Larry Johnson of Charlotte, guard Kenny Anderson of New Jersey, forward Billy Owens (traded by Sacramento to Golden State)
