EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Marcus Camby was treated like the Player of the Year, and performed like one.The 6-foot-11 junior center was shut down by Kentucky's double teams over the last 15 minutes of the first half last night, but he responded in the second, when UMass got within three points of the Wildcats. Camby's best half of the postseason still wasn't enough to deliver a victory, but he had Kentucky's attention for the second time this season.In the season opener for the Minutemen, Camby opened his candidacy for Player of the Year with 32 points on 11-for-16 shooting, nine rebounds and six blocked shots in a 92-82 win over Kentucky.

This past week hasn't exactly been a ringing endorsement for the "I Love This Game" slogan the NBA has been trumpeting for so long. To wit, the conduct of Gary Payton, Marcus Camby and Tyrone Nesby heaps more fuel on the smoldering perception that the league is out of control. Payton, 32, a two-time Olympian, was suspended by new Seattle coach Nate McMillan for having to be separated from teammate Ruben Patterson on the court during a game Wednesday, then popping off in the locker room.

NEW YORK - Not again? Patrick Ewing not only didn't make it back for Game3, but the New York Knicks lost Marcus Camby, too, and still coasted to a 98-95 victory over the Pacers yesterday, cutting Indiana's lead in the NBA Eastern Conference finals to 2-1. As far as the Pacers are concerned, 12 mannequins in Knicks uniforms would be dangerous. "It was very disappointing," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "We established inside position with Rik [Smits, who scored21points in the first half]

NEW YORK -- If you listen to some of the New York Knicks, their most feared opponent at times is team doctor Norman Scott. A few players have questioned Scott's diagnoses during the past year, most recently Marcus Camby, who said Friday his injured right knee has "been misdiagnosed from the beginning." However, on Saturday coach Jeff Van Gundy defended the team physician. "To me, you don't get paid enough as a team doctor to take as much [garbage] as this guy has taken this year," Van Gundy said.

NEW YORK -- His arrival in this hard-to-please town wasn't exactly met with a ringing endorsement from his coach. In fact, New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy questioned his work habits and his toughness, and his heavy minutes on the bench early in the season earned him the nickname "Marcus Can't Be."Well, Marcus Camby "Can Be" an important piece to the improbable championship run of the Knicks. While Larry Johnson grabbed all the headlines with his rare, game-winning four-point play in New York's 92-91 win over Indiana on Saturday night, Camby's solid effort leading up to that shot helped keep the Knicks in the game.

ATLANTA -- Carmelo Travieso started and tardy birthday celebrant Marcus Camby didn't, but every combination worked for Massachusetts last night, as the Minutemen coasted to a 79-63 victory over Arkansas in an NCAA East Regional semifinal.It was Late Night at the Georgia Dome, where a crowd of 34,614 was the largest ever to watch a game in this state. The second half didn't start until after midnight, but the suspense was over well before then, as top-seeded and top-ranked UMass scored the first 13 points, led 40-24 at the half and toyed with the young Razorbacks in the second half.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Central Florida knocked Marcus Camby down. They stepped on his midsection and scratched his face, but top-ranked Massachusetts overcame the woes of the leading candidate for Player of the Year and a first-half lapse, and pulled away to victory, 92-70.Camby had 17 rebounds and 14 points, but he missed 15 shots and needed four stitches on his forehead midway through the second half, courtesy of a misplaced swipe at the ball by Knights forward Reid Ketteler. Camby missed five minutes for the cut job and to change his bloody jersey, and his start wasn't so hot either, as he collapsed with just 2: 30 elapsed and writhed in pain for a minute.

LANDOVER -- This was what Maryland wanted. Marcus Camby in first-half foul trouble, Massachusetts on its heels, a lead to nurse down the stretch.But that dream scheme turned into an afternoon nightmare when Maryland's 13-point second-half lead dissolved into a 50-47 loss to No. 5 UMass in the Franklin Bank Classic at USAir Arena yesterday.Consider it a painful reminder of what the Terps miss most with Joe Smith playing in the NBA this season."They just killed us on the offensive boards," Maryland guard Johnny Rhodes said of UMass' staggering 24 offensive rebounds.

ATLANTA - Forget Kentucky. Remember Oklahoma State.That was the battle cry Marcus Camby gave in the Massachusetts locker room at halftime of the NCAA East Regional final last night, after the Minutemen had seen a 13-point lead on Georgetown shrink to four. There was no mention of the Final Four and a rematch with the Wildcats, just some bitter reminiscences of how UMass blew a similar lead against Oklahoma State in the same game a year ago.Camby, the All-America center, scored the first six points of the second half, the launching pad for a clinical 86-62 rout of the Hoyas before 32,328 at the Georgia Dome.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When the Philadelphia 76ers last had the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft a decade ago, they dealt the pick in what turned out to be one of the worst blunders in franchise history. There were no deals last night, as the team addressed its strong need for a point guard.And that point guard turned out to be Allen Iverson, who became the first point guard selected with the top pick since the Los Angeles Lakers took Magic Johnson in 1979. The Sixers did so after fielding some offers for the pick, including one in which the Washington Bullets offered a package that included Philadelphia native Rasheed Wallace.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It pays to trust a guy named Isiah with a prophecy.Marcus Camby did. Despite late-minute talk to the contrary, the former University of Massachusetts star center took Toronto Raptors general manager Isiah Thomas at his word when Thomas said a couple of weeks ago that "Marcus Camby is a Raptor," meaning the team would select him as the second overall choice in last night's NBA draft.Thomas came through on his statement, making Camby Toronto's second-ever first round pick.

When the big man who would transport Massachusetts to the Final Four arrived, he turned out to be a tall ship, not an aircraft carrier.He might be the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, but he's studying to be a high school principal -- not bad for someone who didn't care about books or basketball when he was 16.The Minutemen feed off the center who wants to be a shooting guard, but his own lousy eating habits contributed to his midseason collapse.Marcus Camby, all 6 feet 11 of him, may be a walking contradiction, but make no mistake: UMass is two wins away from an NCAA title because, in Camby, it has the best college player in the country.

AMHERST, Mass. -- The Towson State shock treatment in the preseason National Invitation Tournament ended abruptly last night.A bigger, quicker and deeper Massachusetts team dominated the Tigers in every phase of the game and brought them back to reality with an 82-55 romp before 9,122 at the Mullins Center.Towson was never in contention against the nation's 22nd-ranked team after the first few minutes, and the partisan fans -- sensing the hasty knockout -- were chanting "UNC . . . UNC" early in the second half of the lopsided matchup.
