The Washington Bullets continued to shuffle the bottom of their roster, replacing 12th man Chris Corchiani with guard Steve Burtt, who has had previous NBA trials with the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns.Corchiani, who had been waived earlier this season by the Orlando Magic, got a 10-day trial with Washington after rookie guard Doug Overton was lost for six to eight weeks with thumb surgery. He had three minutes of action.The Bullets had invited Burtt, 30, to training camp this summer, but the Iona graduate opted to play in Greece, where he averaged 31 points before he returned to the United States.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland Terrapins senior point guard Steve Blake has spent three years as one of the nation's top passers. But after making a name for himself primarily as a distributor with great vision and a knack for finding the open man, Blake is relishing an expanded role as his final season approaches. This time around for the defending NCAA men's basketball champions, the team's lone returning starter will be unleashed as a scoring threat. Check out the show Blake put on in Wednesday night's intra-squad scrimmage at Comcast Center.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State caught Duke in the Devils' stomping ground again.The Wolfpack turned Reynolds Coliseum into a roaring snake pit last night, beating ninth-ranked Duke 95-89 for the fifth straight time on its homecourt.N.C. State shot holes in the argument it doesn't have enough depth to contend in the ACC this season. As long as the Wolfpack has guards Rodney Monroe and Chris Corchiani and a little help from their friends, it showed it has enough.Monroe, who played his high school ball at St. Maria Goretti in Hagerstown, scored 35 points in another dazzling performance, while Corchiani gave a demonstration in the art of point guard play.

Looking back: Maryland beat Detroit, 79-54, on Sunday, then used a big second-half run in blowing out Monmouth, 91-55, on Tuesday. Looking ahead: After a 10-day break for final exams, the Terps travel to Oklahoma on Friday. Of note: Having dispatched Illinois and Detroit, Maryland's 82-game, nonconference, home-court winning streak should be safe for another year. By the numbers: With 269 career steals, Dixon needs seven more to pass Tyrone Bogues and move into third place in ACC history.

Chris Corchiani arrived in Washington last weekend to discover there was no hotel room in town because of all the pre-inauguration galas for Bill Clinton.So, Corchiani, who had just agreed to a 10-day contract with the Washington Bullets, called on an old college friend, moving in with Tom Gugliotta, his North Carolina State teammate.No one knows how long their reunion will last, but Gugliotta says he will do everything possible to help Corchiani extend his trial period.For three years at Raleigh, it was Gugliotta who benefited from the deft passes of Corchiani, the NCAA's all-time assists leader (1,038)

COLLEGE PARK -- Chris Corchiani was quite clearly enjoying the moment. And why not? It was all his. He had just played the game of his life, leading N.C. State to an impressive win in the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament. That would have been enough, even if the game hadn't been -- for the winners at least -- pure fun, which made it even better.This is what college basketball is supposed to be all about. And Corchiani was pumped. If you've ever seen him play, you have some idea what that means.

COLLEGE PARK -- Chris Corchiani took to heart North Carolina State's one-year, forced hiatus from the NCAA tournament last year. Yesterday, he reveled in the return of Fire and Ice."The tournament is so much fun," State's gritty point guard said. "When you have to sit out and don't play in it, you appreciate it so much more."There was a lot to appreciate about Corchiani's play in a 114-85 blowout of Southern Mississippi in the opening round of yesterday's East Regional at Cole Field House.

COLLEGE PARK -- They will be forever linked, their names so closely attached and their styles so vastly different that it's difficult to separate one from the other.Chris Corchiani and Rodney Monroe.Fire and Ice.The consummate point guard and the quintessential shooter.Apart, they can stand alone on their statistics: Corchiani, the all-time assist leader in National Collegiate Athletic Association history; Monroe, the all-time scorer at North Carolina State.Together, they are perhaps the most productive backcourt to play together in the Atlantic Coast Conference -- perhaps one of the best to play Division I basketball.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- It was expected to be a showcase for two of the Atlantic Coast Conference's premier point guards.It became a Rodney Monroe highlight film.Georgia Tech point guard Kenny Anderson got the better end of his personal battle with North Carolina State point guard Chris Corchiani yesterday.But Corchiani's Wolfpack came away with the 90-83 victory. Why?Because Corchiani had the good sense to get Monroe the ball. A lot.A native of Hagerstown, Monroe hit jumpers, leaners, fadeaways and layups and even a dunk in a career-best 48-point performance that brought the Wolfpack (2-0, 8-3)

COLLEGE PARK -- It was nothing fancy or complicated, just hardnosed, aggressive defense.There were no 1-2-2, 3-2, box-and-one or triangle-and-two defenses. Just a simple man-to-man.That's all it took for Oklahoma State to douse Fire and turn up the heat on Ice, North Carolina State's backcourt of Chris Corchiani (Fire) and Rodney Monroe (Ice), while winning, 73-64, in a National Collegiate Athletic Association East Regional second-round game yesterday at Cole Field House.Oklahoma State (23-7)

LANDOVER -- The Washington Bullets displayed all the growing pains and inconsistencies of a young, inexperienced team in their home debut last night, blowing an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter to bow to the Orlando Magic, 103-98, before a sellout crowd of 18,756.Just as they did in losing their road opener in Charlotte, 126-119, Friday night, the Bullets wasted numerous chances in crunch time through turnovers and missed scoring opportunities. They scored only three points in the last five minutes.

COLLEGE PARK -- Radenko Dobras of South Florida scored 31 points against the University of Maryland a week ago, more than doubling his season's average.Reggie Stewart of Boston University equaled his career high of 30 against the Terrapins on Tuesday, 13 points more than his average this year.Neither likely will be in the National Basketball Association next season. Rodney Monroe undoubtedly will be there and probably will be chosen in the first round."Very rarely does one guy beat you," said Maryland coach Gary Williams after the Terps beat Stewart and BU, 85-59.
