If the Washington Bullets improve as much in Chris Webber's third game back as they did between the first two, maybe their playoff hopes aren't so far-fetched after all.Webber, who was out six weeks with a dislocated shoulder, came through with his second straight strong effort last night. And this time his teammates came through with some support as the Bullets crushed the Boston Celtics, 135-107, before a sellout crowd of 12,756 at the Baltimore Arena.The city of Baltimore has been good to the Bullets; just over a week ago they surprised the Miami Heat here.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Finally, Joe Smith lived down to his name yesterday against Duke.He was not Maryland's Famous, Sensational Freshman Joooooe Smith!Just Joe. Smith.As in vanilla.He played 11 minutes before scoring a point. He finished the game with three baskets. He got blistered on defense, heckled by the Duke smarty-pants fans and flustered for the first time as a Terp.In other words, he behaved like a typical freshman in his first game at Cameron Indoor Stadium."It was tough out there," he said after Duke's 75-62 win in a game between the ACC co-leaders, which will go down, among other things, as Smith's first official dose of real life as a collegian.

LANDOVER -- Liberty came into USAir Arena yesterday praying for a miracle. For 30 minutes at least, the Flames got their wish.There was Liberty, a small Baptist school in Lynchburg, Va., making its first appearance in the NCAA tournament, hanging with the titans of North Carolina. There was Liberty, taking a 46-45 lead with 10 minutes left on a three-point basket by guard Chris Toomer.Did it bother the Tar Heels? The defending national champions buckled down on defense, turned their inside power loose and ruined Liberty's dream with 16 unanswered points over the next seven minutes, and North Carolina ran away with a 71-51 victory in the first round of the East Regional.

Howard also averaged 8.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in February.

Washington Bullets center Kevin Duckworth, who has missed eight straight games because of a sore Achilles' tendon, has been the topic of trade talks the past week between the Bullets and the Boston Celtics.The Bullets apparently want a deal that would send Duckworth to the Celtics for disgruntled forward Xavier McDaniel. But the Celtics' ability to buy McDaniel out of his contract at the end of this season makes it unlikely that they will make the deal for Duckworth, who has this year and next left on his contract.
