WASHINGTON - It would be wise not to attach too much meaning to the Washington Wizards' exhibition opener with the Philadelphia 76ers last night. After all, in terms of future impact, the game was a lot like the improvisational TV show, Whose Line Is It Anyway, where everything is made up and the points don't matter. But one thing is certain: Even with Michael Jordan in street clothes, the Wizards, who outlasted the 76ers, 99-84, will be a whole lot more athletic than they were last season.

Reginald Johnson found the wide-open Waters, who then hit the soft jumper.

ATLANTA - Faced with perhaps its toughest frontcourt challenge of the season, Maryland dominated down low during a 97-88 victory over Kansas and did so in an unexpected fashion. Kansas All-America center Drew Gooden was a non-factor for much of the game, not recording a second-half field goal until 7:22 remained in the game. But Maryland's dynamite performance didn't come from Lonny Baxter - who was the Most Outstanding Performer of the East Regional. Baxter was hampered by foul trouble for much of the game and finished with just four points.

When Glenelg scored its first basket of the second half last night against visiting Linganore, four minutes were left - in the game. "We couldn't buy a basket to save our lives," said Glenelg coach Ciaran Lesikar, whose team missed its first 18 shots after halftime. With the Gladiators missing shots from near and far, the outcome was never in doubt. Linganore increased its 13-point halftime lead to as many as 20 before settling for a 56-39 victory. "Glenelg's a good squad to measure yourself by this early in the season," said Linganore coach Brian Matthews.

Aberdeen played one good quarter of basketball, but it came in the final eight minutes and helped the visiting Eagles put away Joppatowne last night, 77-61, in a Harford County League game.The game turned around for the last time after Joppatowne (9-3, 3-2) rallied to slice a 10-point deficit to one in a two-minute span that left it trailing, 57-56, with 3:30 left.Darnell Everett's three-point goal had the Mariners rolling at that point, but at the other end, Aberdeen missed successive shots before Fred Cole put back a rebound.

Carroll Christian, burned by a 31-point show from Granite Baptist senior Alana Stubbs last month, made sure it did not happen again.The Patriots (8-3), with an effective double-team on Stubbs, ran off 13 successive points in less than three minutes midway of the first half, and went on to beat the visiting Braves (4-6) last night, 47-29.Carroll Christian, using a box-and-one on Stubbs, had lost the earlier meeting in Glen Burnie, 50-44.Aside from the Patriots' brief scoring flurry, the rustiness of both teams was obvious.

WHAT STARTED AS a hobby grew into a business for Joyce Shaum. The Keymar resident, who took her first basket weaving class through the county 15 years ago, discovered she enjoyed making baskets so much that it became her full-time pursuit. "I used to make stained glass," she said. "But when I became pregnant I didn't want to expose my baby to the lead hazards." During her first basket course, she learned ribbed construction and climbing techniques. The course whetted her interest and she took a second class at a basket shop in Baltimore.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- This time, it didn't come down to the final minute or the last few seconds. This time, the winner wasn't going to the Final Four and the loser wasn't going home from the NCAA tournament.This time, Duke and Kentucky played an ordinary game. The second-ranked Blue Devils won easily over the third-ranked Wildcats, 71-60, in the featured game of the Jimmy V Classic doubleheader at Continental Airlines Arena.The difference between last night and last season, when Duke blew a 17-point second-half lead and lost to Kentucky in the South Regional final at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., was sophomore center Elton Brand.

There have been a number of early-season disappointments, but Tennessee has probably fallen the farthest of any nationally ranked team over the first six weeks. The Volunteers started the season as a consensus Top 10 pick and right now are barely a blip on the radar screen trolling for potential Top 25 teams.Tennessee's record is still a respectable 6-3, but two of its losses came on the road at Miami of Ohio and St. Joseph's.Preseason expectations were centered on the return of guards Tony Harris and Brandon Wharton, who led the Vols to their first NCAA tournament appearance in nine years.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Here's a scary thought: What happens to the Maryland Terrapins next season when Joe Smith isn't around to save them?Smith went almost 30 minutes before scoring his first basket last night, then had to leave the game because of a bloody right knee.Seconds later, he was back. Back with his knee taped. Back with a vengeance. Back doing all the wonderful things he does on a basketball court.His three-pointer with 8:05 left gave Maryland its first lead, and that was just the start.

PHILADELPHIA -- Thin as whips. Sharp and quick as whips, too. They leave scars, Kerry Kittles and Lawrence Moten, nasty painful scars.Kittles and Moten are plotting, they must be, plotting as they stand face-to-face, plotting when they're going to twist some poor defender into knots and leave another caught in a pick. It's their way, Kittles and Moten.Kittles, the guard from Villanova, and Moten, the guard from Syracuse, weaving, slipping through holes, popping up at the unlikeliest places, so much alike, so hard to tell apart.
