COLLEGE PARK - The North Carolina Tar Heels limped into soldout Cole Field House last night, looking like a wounded team missing Its sterling tradition and ripe for a knockout. The Maryland Terrapins, feeling their superiority in size and athleticism from the outset, started punching early and never stopped until they had administered the worst-ever beating of their nemesis from Chapel Hill. To the utter delight of a roaring home crowd, fourth-ranked Maryland ran rough-shod over the helpless Tar Heels and drove another nail into Carolina's nightmarish season with a 112-79 rout.

CHICAGO -- The bench still looks a little empty without the game's all-time winningest coach sitting on it. And Bill Guthridge still looks as if he's feeling his way in replacing a legend named Dean Smith. But the North Carolina Tar Heels have been making things relatively easy for their new head coach.Having won their first six games by an average of 26 points and being challenged only once, the third-ranked Tar Heels appeared to be on their way to another runaway victory against Louisville in the Great Eight Basketball Classic last night at the United Center.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland senior guard/forward Byron Mouton has seen the struggles that are consuming the North Carolina Tar Heels. Watching videotape of Carolina in preparation for tonight's visit at Cole Field House, Mouton has witnessed the inexperience, poor shooting, spotty rebounding and sloppy ball handling, all of which have led the Tar Heels into the unfamiliar world of mediocrity. As for Carolina's record (5-6, 1-1) and the apparent end of its reign among the elite in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Mouton sounded as if he is waiting for a better team to emerge in Chapel Hill.

And you thought Maryland's season-opening loss to then-unranked Arizona was disappointing. Consider the plight of the North Carolina Tar Heels, who had left a huge stain on Tobacco Road before the season was a week old. Losing to Hampton at the Dean Smith Center a week ago was bad enough. But at least Carolina fans could reflect on how Hampton and the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference had made a name for themselves last March by knocking off second-seeded Iowa State in the NCAA tournament.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Their frontcourt was supposed to be as big a question mark as junior center Serge Zwikker's shadow this season. The North Carolina Tar Heels were supposed to be a middle-of-the-pack team in the Atlantic Coast Conference.Guess again.Instead, the players who were being counted on to make up for the loss of Jerry Stackhouse and Rasheed Wallace have been surprises, each bigger than the next. The result is really no surprise: North Carolina again will be in the hunt for this year's ACC championship.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- They have won 56 games in the NCAA tournament, more than any other school except UCLA, which dominated college basketball with only two interruptions from 1964 to 1975.The first and second rounds of the East Regional are an hour's drive from their home in Chapel Hill, Eastwhere they practiced at the Smith Center last night at a time corresponding with tonight's 10:20 tip-off.But there are still some clouds above the North Carolina Tar Heels, the region's top seed and the marquee name in the field of eight at Joel Memorial Coliseum.

The bleeding appears to be subsiding in Chapel Hill. Then again, over the next week, the North Carolina Tar Heels should get a much clearer idea of how far they have come. It used to be that a three-game winning streak barely raised an eyebrow at Carolina, which enjoyed an 18-game streak only 11 months ago. Coming into this season, the Tar Heels had won three in a row during 38 different stretches since 1990. This is not a typical year. North Carolina, sporting one of its more inexperienced teams in years, is riding a three-game winning streak six weeks after doing the unthinkable - losing its first two at home for the first time ever.

The insurrection began seven years ago, when the most dominant program in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference and one of the best in the country saw its stranglehold slipping and its closest neighbors taking control of the kingdom known as Tobacco Road.The resurrection began before last season, when a high school phenom named Jerry Stackhouse made all the so-called recruiting gurus look foolish by picking their third choice -- the North Carolina Tar Heels -- as his first.The coronation came in the spring when, after getting its candles blown out at Sweet 16 parties and its ego bashed at Final Fours on a regular basis since 1982, North Carolina beat Michigan at the Louisiana Superdome to win the NCAA title.
