AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons made just enough shots and stops to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for a sixth straight year. Richard Hamilton scored 19 of his 31 points in the first half and made victory-sealing free throws late in the game, and Tayshaun Prince had a key block, helping Detroit hold off the Orlando Magic for a 91-86 win last night in Game 5 of the second-round series. "Playing in six straight is awesome, but now we expect to do this," Hamilton said.

ANNAPOLIS -- Opponents had been shooting nearly 53 percent from the field against the Navy basketball team this season, and the result was predictable for the Midshipmen: a struggle for victories.But last night at Alumni Hall, the Midshipmen applied an effective defensive blanket to Drexel and rode a free-throw surge to an 84-71 victory before 1,204 spectators.The Dragons made 10 of 31 first-half shots while falling behind by 10 at intermission and never got closer than six the rest of the way.Meanwhile, Navy hit 13 consecutive free throws and finished 33-for-37 from the line to end a two-game Drexel winning streak.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Mike Maddox and Christian Laettner found themselves in a similar position Saturday night at the Hoosier Dome. In the semifinals of the National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball tournament. At the foul line. With the game, and the season, riding on their shots."There's a lot of pressure, with 47,000 people screaming in the arena and the rest of the country watching," said Maddox, whose two free throws with 1 minute, 54 seconds remaining helped give the Jayhawks an eight-point lead en route to a 79-73 victory.

ANNAPOLIS -- Tom Schneider could just imagine what the Loyola diehards in the stands were saying about him. He called them "those 55-year-old guys in their Loyola sweaters."What they doubtless were saying was this: Why doesn't Schneider get George Sereikas out of there? Doesn't he know the kid can't shoot free throws?To be sure, Sereikas is not much of a threat at the foul line. The 6-foot-7 sophomore came into the game as a 40 percent free throw shooter this year and proceeded to miss seven of his first 10 last night against Navy.

ANNAPOLIS -- Navy's basketball agony has come at least temporarily to an end.The Midshipmen broke their six-game losing streak with a 97-80 victory over UMBC last night before 774 at Halsey Field House. Their last previous win was Jan. 13 against Loyola."I don't like even a two-game losing streak," Navy coach Pete Herrmann said. "But we have to keep reassuring these kids. Remember, we have a lot of young players."Navy (5-14) got 18 points from freshman Mark Majick in extending its series lead over UMBC to 5-1. The Retrievers last defeated the Midshipmen in 1988.

On the surface, Westminster guard Cassie Cooke appeared the picture of confidence. Inside, however, the All-County sophomore would've preferred to be just about anywhere other than on the foul line in the waning seconds of a tie game last night at South Carroll. Still, Cooke stepped up and made a pair of free throws with 8.4 seconds left to help the defending Carroll County co-champions, who had blown a 13-point second-half lead, stave off the Cavaliers' spirited upset bid in a 58-56 win. "I told [my teammates]

HONOLULU -- Navy coach Pete Herrmann might think about asking the NCAA to allow his players to shoot their free throws from behind the three-point line.Early yesterday, the Midshipmen missed 11 of 22 foul shots, 10 in the second half, in a 95-88 loss to the University of Hawaii in the 28th-annual Rainbow Classic.Although they shot free throws poorly, the Midshipmen were able to keep the game tight because of their three-point shooting. Navy drilled 13 of 26 three-pointers, including six from guard Mark Majick (team-high 21 points)

Now in his fourth season as coach at Mervo, Woody Williams had the Mustangs in position to play for the City League's East Division title. A victory yesterday over host Southern-Baltimore would have made next Monday's regular-season finale against Lake Clifton a contest for the division championship.However, a breakdown at the free-throw line led to Mervo's 89-78 double-overtime loss to the Bulldogs and left Williams refusing to comment after the game.Holding a 69-67 lead with over a minute remaining in the first overtime, Mervo missed eight consecutive free throws.
