EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The game was 15 minutes old and Cincinnati was running away from North Carolina when Donald Williams went up for a jumper from the key. It was impossible not to ask: Where had he been?Williams is rarely invisible for long. A Carolina sophomore guard, XTC he is addicted to shooting. He is a shootist. Pass the ball to him and away it goes. He drives his coach crazy. He shoots just 44 percent. He makes game-winning shots. He carries the team when it matters. One of those players.

NEW ORLEANS -- When Donald Williams was growing up in Raleigh, N.C., he would go to the basketball court in the apartment complex where his family lived and practice being the hero. And not just in any ordinary game.In his mind, it was always the Final Four. In his mind, he was Michael Jordan or Lorenzo Charles or some other player who made their mark on college basketball's signature event. Williams thought often about what it would be like to be in that situation.He dreamed of taking the crucial jumper, as Jordan did to help North Carolina beat Georgetown in 1982; or getting a last-second basket, as Charles did for N.C. State the following year to upset Houston.

COLLEGE PARK -- Two months ago, the notion of Maryland's basketball team even being competitive with North Carolina this season seemed like pure fantasy. The Terrapins were frighteningly young. The defending national champion Tar Heels were merely frightening.Today, when the teams meet in a 1:30 p.m. Atlantic Coast Conference game at sold-out Cole Field House, the idea is not so far-fetched. Not after Maryland opened its ACC season with a 91-88 road upset over 12th-ranked Georgia Tech Tuesday night.
