CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- To take its historic 1,500th victory, No. 6 North Carolina (21-4, 9-3) relied on a time-tested defense and some timely shots from Hubert Davis.Davis scored 13 points, including North Carolina's first nine of the second half, as the Tar Heels beat Clemson (10-14, 1-10), 73-57, in the Atlantic Coast Conference yesterday to become the first team in National Collegiate Athletic Association history to post 1,500 wins. Kentucky had 1,499 all-time victories with yesterday's win over Florida.

Were the seeds of Maryland's renewal planted in the soul-searching sessions with Gary Williams in mid-January, or in the tension-cutting win over North Carolina State that followed?Did the turnaround start in the bowels of Cameron Indoor Stadium after a desultory loss to Duke, or in Virginia's University Hall, where the Terrapins claimed their first Atlantic Coast Conference road victory of the season?From his vantage point at the Smith Center on Tuesday night, Williams refused to look back, partly out of superstition, he said, but perhaps also because he couldn't stand to revisit those early ghosts.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- They have played for 74 years. They have met 190 times. But in what has become the most intense rivalry in college basketball, North Carolina and Duke have not faced each other as the No. 1 and 2 ranked teams in the country.They will here tonight."It's kind of ironic, because we've had some huge games," said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, whose top-ranked Blue Devils have yet to lose on the road (5-0). "It's just a matter of timing."Said North Carolina coach Dean Smith, whose No. 2 Tar Heels are 10-0 at the Smith Center, "They've been No. 1 a lot of times we've played them.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The National Collegiate Athletic Association doesn't award a championship trophy for the "Syracuse Subregional Championship," so named by North Carolina coach Dean Smith.But the Tar Heels' surprisingly one-sided, 84-69 basketball victory over Villanova yesterday in the NCAA East Regional at the Carrier Dome brought with it another shot of confidence to an already driven team, and an invitation to next weekend's shindig in East Rutherford, N.J.By playing their way into a record 11th straight Sweet 16 appearance, the Tar Heels passed several mini-tests.

COLLEGE PARK -- North Carolina coach Dean Smith has tried a number of things to get his Tar Heels out of their slump. He praised their defense against Virginia and their offense against Florida State.Yesterday, with his team down 22 points to Maryland at halftime, Smith tried a new approach. He scorched them with a rare locker-room tirade, and then stormed back out onto the floor at Cole Field House. By himself."I stomped out like a little kid, which I'm not," said Smith, college basketball's winningest active coach with 735.North Carolina stormed back, too. The 10th-ranked Tar Heels scored the first six points of the second half.

When half of the Final Four consists of schools just eight miles apart, some good-natured ribbing is to be expected. But when the two neighbors are hated ACC adversaries Duke and North Carolina, the good nature turns into fierce competitiveness.Already the toilet paper -- colored in the appropriate shade of blue -- has been flung across both campuses and the chants of "Go to hell, Carolina, go to hell," and "Don't give a damn for Duke University" have been sounded to mark the first time that both schools have gone together to basketball nirvana.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- You know it's October, with plenty of time before the start of the Atlantic Coast Conference basketball season, when:* North Carolina coach Dean Smith and Duke's Mike Krzyzewski are trading quips.* Maryland's Gary Williams, arguably the most intense coach in college basketball, is seen smiling in public.* Clemson's Cliff Ellis is asked to sing.Such things could only happen at Operation Basketball, the ACC's annual preseason gathering of coaches, players and media.Here, anything can be said, and usually is.For example:* Krzyzewski, after taking the podium to address reporters, on ACC expansion: "You can tell expansion has done a lot for the conference.

NEW ORLEANS -- When it was assembled, many called this class of recruits the best in school history, maybe even the best ever. There was a dominating big man. A terrific point guard. A small forward who could jump through the roof and a big forward with arms that went on forever. And don't forget the blue-collar guy from Jersey.No, not Michigan's Fab Five.It was North Carolina's pre-Fab Five. They came to Chapel Hill three seasons ago and they were at the Louisiana Superdome last night -- minus one -- winning the national championship with a 77-71 victory over Michigan.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Yesterday, Florida State coach Pat Kennedy was thumbing through the North Carolina basketball press guide when his eyes caught the section on its storied comebacks.Little did Kennedy know that his 19th-ranked Seminoles would be added to the list of victims.Trailing Florida State by 21 with a little less than 12 minutes left, and by 73-54 with nine minutes remaining, the third-ranked Tar Heels stopped the Seminoles cold with 16 straight points and didn't stop until they had secured a stunning 82-77 victory before a frenzied sellout crowd of 21,572 at the Smith Center.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It was supposed to be a classic early season matchup of two top-10 teams with Final Four potential. North Carolina might eventually go that far, but Seton Hall has a long way to go.The fifth-ranked Tar Heels ran away from the sixth-ranked Pirates midway through the first half of last night's ACC-Big East Challenge game at Brendan Byrne Arena, and then hid in the second half for a shocking 83-54 romp.The fifth straight victory this season for North Carolina wasn't as telling as the first defeat for Seton Hall (2-1)
