DURHAM, N.C. -- On Sunday, Duke retired the jersey worn by point guard Bobby Hurley the past four years. Tonight, Hurley could retire a record. Hurley needs just five assists against Maryland to pass former North Carolina State guard Chris Corchiani as the NCAA's all-time assist leader.Corchiani, who played from 1987 to 1991, had 1,038 assists in four seasons with the Wolfpack. Hurley had 31 assists the last two games."He really doesn't want the notoriety," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said recently about Hurley.

PHILADELPHIA -- This was the hardest game of Bobby Hurley's season, and it had little to do with the fact that Seton Hall -- a tough, punishing defensive team -- was Duke's next obstacle on the road to yet another Final Four.No, this was the game Hurley had dreaded all week -- the contest in which Duke's gritty floor leader knew at one point he'd be going one-on-one against his younger brother Danny, the Pirates' freshman backup point guard.In all, they played 18 minutes against each other, and Bobby Hurley's Blue Devils got the better of Danny Hurley's Pirates, 81-69, in last night's NCAA East Regional semifinal at The Spectrum.

There probably weren't too many words or tears or anything else overtly shared by Mike Peplowski and Bobby Hurley when the Sacramento Kings released Peplowski recently to meet the 12-man roster limit.Thanks to what happened on a dark stretch of highway outside the Kings' arena 11 months ago, they have something in common -- a bond that allows them to communicate whole sentences in a split-second glance and a true perspective on the insignificance of something like having to look for another NBA job."

PHILADELPHIA -- How appropriate that the NCAA East Regional has come to the City of Brotherly Love. Maybe not since those famous jump-shooters, Cain and Abel -- or was it the Van Arsdales? -- have two siblings on opposing teams shared the same court.But it should happen tonight, when junior point guard Bobby Hurley of Duke, who rarely comes out, and freshman point guard Danny Hurley of Seton Hall, who rarely gets in, will face each other for the first time since they left Jersey City."We definitely played a lot, and we fought a lot," Bobby Hurley recalled earlier this week.

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- As the final seconds ticked away Saturday night at the Rosemont Horizon, as it became increasingly apparent that Duke's chances for a three-peat had vanished, Bobby Hurley didn't know what to do.He stood at the end of the court, with a look on his face that hadn't been there for nearly three years, when the Blue Devils last lost an NCAA tournament game -- to Nevada-Las Vegas for the 1990 championship.But this was different. This time, Bobby Hurley wasn't coming back."I just really didn't know how to react," Hurley said in the Duke locker room, as the impact of his team's 82-77 upset loss to upstart Cal in the second round of the Midwest Regional began to sink in.

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- This was a matchup people started talking about when the pairings to the NCAA tournament were announced Sunday, when the possibility arose that Duke could play California in the second round of the Midwest Regional.This was a matchup two players started thinking about Thursday night, when Bobby Hurley led the Blue Devils to a 105-70 rout of Southern Illinois with a great shooting performance and Jason Kidd sneaked the Bears past Louisiana State, 66-64, with a great last-second shot.

DURHAM, N.C. -- The crowd at Cameron Indoor Stadium has gained a reputation nationally for being clever, as well as a bit intimidating to Duke's opponents. But Mike Krzyzewski says his team's fans can be a bit foul-mouthed and spoiled as well.After getting on the PA system to yell at the crowd during a game earlier this season after the fans chanting an obscenity at referee Dick Paparo, the Duke coach got on the fans after yesterday's 75-62 victory over 18th-ranked Maryland for chanting Overrated . . . overrated" at the Terps and freshman center Joe Smith."

MINNEAPOLIS -- Bobby Hurley looked thin and pale, but he always has looked thin and pale. He talked of his left shoulder being far weaker than it was before, but the most visible reminder of his near-fatal December car accident was a thick scar extending from his left eye to his left ear.But in typical Hurley fashion, he doesn't see those things as RTC overwhelming obstacles to his return to the NBA. The former star at Jersey City's St. Anthony High School...

He ran from the truck with his hunting jacket, because you're supposed to keep injured people warm, right? He rumbled down the embankment, and his feet squashed in the water of the drainage ditch. So much mud. He kneeled, wrapped the jacket around Bobby Hurley's shoulders, and tugged it tightly.Hurley looked up. "Pep . . . what happened?" His voice was weak, almost dreamlike. His eyes were glassy, and blood dripped from his ear. "Pep? . . .""You're gonna be all right," Mike Peplowski said.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Bobby Hurley of the Sacramento Kings is expected to remain in serious condition for the next four to five days with potentially life-threatening injuries sustained in an auto collision near Arco Arena early yesterday, team physicians said yesterday.Hurley, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from his truck when it was broadsided by a station wagon about an hour after his team's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. He landed in a drainage ditch approximately 20 feet away on the other side of road and was taken by ambulance to the University of California Davis Medical Center.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The dim street lamp at the intersection of Del Paso and El Centro Roads was no help to Bobby Hurley Sunday night.The road was dark, and little did the Sacramento Kings rookie know, it was not deserted.On his way home from a game, he turned left into a speeding car, was ejected about 75 feet into a drainage ditch and yesterday was breathing with the aid of a ventilator after eight hours of surgery to save his left lung.Hurley suffered two collapsed lungs, broken ribs and facial, knee, wrist and back injuries.

At about 10:45 last night, an obviously excited Evers Burns answered the phone at his Woodlawn home, then seconds later put the caller on hold."Can you hold on a second?" Burns said anxiously, clicking over pTC to the other line for a moment. He was apologetic when he returned to the original caller."Oh, I'm sorry," Burns said. "I still haven't heard from Sacramento."But the Sacramento Kings obviously had heard about and seen enough of Burns. They selected the 6-foot-8, 260-pound forward with their second-round pick -- the 30th overall -- in last night's NBA draft in Auburn Hills, Mich.

If you counted only the eight matches that actually were wrestled, home-standing Franklin had a 6-2 advantage against Baltimore County 4A-3A rival Dundalk.The problem for the Indians (2-2) is each match has 13 weight classes, and coach John Tartal can't find wrestlers to fill five of them. That, more than anything, led to the Indians' 42-22 loss to No. 12 Dundalk (5-0)."We didn't have our full lineup as far as where the guys should be wrestling, but that doesn't take anything away from Franklin," said Dundalk coach Bob Hutsler, whose Owls trailed, 22-18, with four bouts left before getting a pin from James Marsheck (189 pounds)
