Here's a look at how the NBA Eastern Conference seeds look as the playoffs loom. 1. Cavaliers Record since break: 28-8. Why they can win the East: No one else may show up. Actually, it only seems they never lose. Throw out three weeks and they're on a 70-victory pace. That's with Shaquille O'Neal having missed 26 games this season, Delonte West 22, Mo Williams 11 and LeBron James three. Not that there's any mystery: James, last season's overwhelming choice as MVP, raised his game again, prompting Magic coach Stan Van Gundy to name him the presumptive MVP through 2018.

The Maryland baseball team's improbable NCAA tournament run ended in disappointment Monday when Virginia jumped to an early lead and never let up in an 11-2 drubbing in the deciding third game of the NCAA super regional. “There's only eight teams that can go to Omaha (Neb. for the College World Series), and I'd say these guys had about as special a season as they possibly could have had,” Maryland coach John Szefc said. “Unfortunately, we got matched up against an absolute monster in the super regional at their place.” That monster was a Virginia squad whose explosive offense threatened in Maryland's Game 1 win Saturday, broke out to take Game 2 Sunday, and never relented in a 13-hit barrage Monday that ended Maryland's season.

For four seasons, Johns Hopkins lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala had to find a way to defend Virginia attackman Steele Stanwick . On Saturday, the roles will be reversed because No. 8 Virginia has to find a way to stop his brother Wells, an attackman for the No. 10 Blue Jays. A lot has changed for Hopkins and Virginia in recent years. Hopkins' offense is no longer centered on midfielders, but quarterbacked by Stanwick, a junior from Boys' Latin who has a team-high 20 assists as well as nine goals.

Tom Izzo is trying to take his time as he weighs the pros and cons of leaving to coach the Cavaliers or staying at Michigan State. He indicated on Sunday that he's still undecided. "Still gathering," Izzo wrote in a text message to the Associated Press. The Cavaliers have been wooing Izzo for at least a week to coach their team — and perhaps LeBron James , who can become a free agent. Izzo, who spent several hours in Cleveland with team officials last week, has said the situation wouldn't go on forever.

An official within the league told the Associated Press that the NBA has not threatened to stop a potential reunion between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Zydrunas Ilgauskas. The Cavaliers traded their longtime center to Washington last week in the three-team deal that brought Antawn Jamison to Cleveland. The Wizards might decide to buy out Ilgauskas, allowing him to become a free agent. The Los Angeles Times quoted an unnamed source Sunday saying the NBA had told other teams it wouldn't let Ilgauskas go back to the Cavs.

College Park -- Picture being the defending national champion and having your spot atop the polls, a 24-game winning streak and your sense of invulnerability summarily seized from you by the very team you beat eight months before to win the title, and on television, no less. Now, picture what it would be like to be the next team you play, having to face a lot of talent and six days of pent-up anger. It's pretty clear, then, what the Virginia women's basketball team is up against tonight at Comcast Center vs. No. 3 Maryland, which takes the court for the first time since its 81-62 loss at Duke last weekend.

RICHFIELD, Ohio -- Now it is Danny Ferry's turn . . . sort of.During the summer, Ferry was written in as the latest in a long line of Cleveland Cavaliers' small forwards. At 6 feet 10, Ferry is both bigger and slower than the ideal small forward, and that has been a problem at times this preseason."Right now, we're going to use different people there," coach Lenny Wilkens said. "I think we will have the position well-covered, but one night it may be Danny, others it could be Winston [Bennett]

Here are observations made during Maryland's 27-20 victory over Virginia: *How many times have you seen a kickoff returner pause to consider whether to run the ball out of the end zone … and then bolt past the coverage? That's what happened on Stefon Diggs' 100-yard touchdown return. Sometimes, even a short hesitation can cause the coverage team to either pause or overrun the play. “The ball was 5 yards deep, I believe and we had the feeling that (Diggs) was going to take a knee,” said Virginia kicker Ian Frye.

It was all there for Maryland's taking Saturday: a prime opportunity against a struggling, turnover-prone rival to go 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference for the first time since 2001 and to begin to make something of a season from which little was expected. Maryland started quickly - a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Stefon Diggs - and its defense held on to record a 27-20 victory and spoil the Cavaliers' homecoming on a sunny day in front of an announced 45,556. “We've got a happy locker room next door,” Maryland coach Randy Edsall said.

For years, the South Carroll Cavaliers have relied on solid defense, steady pitching and scraping up runs any way they can.Coach Debbie Eaton says this season will be no different.The Cavs have a strong nucleus back from last year's team and a handful of promising newcomers who are looking to make their mark at the varsity level."The defense has been a strong point at South Carroll over the past few years and the offense hasn't always been there," Eaton said."We're looking to take advantage of our speed and experience at the offensive end and feel the defense will again take care of itself.
