MICHIGAN IS out. Fresno State is out. St. Bonaventure is out. Now add Georgia to the list. A funny thing happened on the way to the 2003 NCAA basketball tournament. No top 65 programs good enough to qualify were eligible to play. Hyperbole? Maybe not after yesterday, when Georgia suspended coach Jim Harrick with pay and joined a list of Division I schools that have been banned - by the NCAA or by themselves - from participating in the mother of all college sports championships. Maybe the selection committee could call upon an old and honorable friend to help fill up the tournament brackets.

SEATTLE -- For much of his seven seasons at UCLA, Jim Harrick has been an amazingly low-profile coach for such a high-profile school. If anything, his reputation has been as much for whining as for winning. Not quite the West Coast's answer to Jim Boeheim, but close.Last night, Harrick did against defending national champion Arkansas what his counterpart at Syracuse couldn't do against Indiana in 1987: win the big one and lose his reputation forever."You walk through the lobby of my hotel and all you hear is, 'One more, Coach.

Beyond the 11 national championship banners at Pauley Pavilion, beyond the 92-year-old living legend named John Wooden who still attends some home games, there's another distinction between the UCLA basketball program and every other Division I team. Where else would a coach whose teams have made six straight NCAA tournament appearances, reaching the Sweet 16 five times and Elite Eight once, and who hasn't run into any trouble with the NCAA, get fired before he finished his seventh season?

LOS ANGELES -- There were times after Thursday's Southern California-UCLA game when George Raveling sounded downright presidential."I'm happy for the people of Los Angeles County," Raveling, USC's coach, said earnestly to a caucus of Los Angeles reporters after the Trojans' sweep of the Bruins. "They got to see two wonderful basketball teams play their hearts off for 40minutes . . . never give anything less than their best."In a community that's primarily dominated by professional athletics, it's refreshing to get college basketball back into a competitive atmosphere that demands a sellout.

Maybe Maryland took too much out of them in their West Regional semifinal.Maybe Mike Bibby was contemplating the NBA draft instead of Utah's triangle-and-two defense.They call Bibby "ET" because of his fingers, which belong on a 7-footer, and maybe the Arizona Wildcats' backcourt was abducted by aliens and replaced by androids.How else to explain the no-show by the Wildcats at the Pond in Anaheim, Calif., yesterday, where they meekly exited the NCAA tournament they won last year? Utah's 76-51 victory in the West final included all manner of statistical oddities, the most unusual being Bibby's 0-for-7 line from three-point range.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The poster has been in the UCLA locker room at Pauley Pavilion for nearly a year, showing a picture of a rainbow hanging over the Kingdome in Seattle.It has been the personal compass for the top-ranked Bruins and their beleaguered coach, Jim Harrick, pointing them in the direction of their goal and their destination: the Final Four.Weather permitting, that poster will come to life for UCLA later this week. By outrunning and outgunning Connecticut yesterday the West Regional final at the Oakland Coliseum, 102-96, the Bruins are headed back to what once was their semiprivate domain.

KINGSTON, R.I. -- Never in his wildest dreams did Lamar Odom imagine himself playing here. Maybe down the interstate in Storrs, starring for Connecticut. Maybe across the country in Las Vegas, as a UNLV Runnin' Rebel. Maybe in Lexington, playing for Kentucky, the most storied college program of all.But here, at the University of Rhode Island?That didn't seem to be Odom's destination when he left Christ The King High School in Queens two years ago, proclaimed as the next great New York City player, compared by some to Scottie Pippen and by others to Penny Hardaway.

SAN ANTONIO -- That Monday night in Seattle two years ago is a fading memory for UCLA point guard Cameron Dollar. What he remembers most is not what he did to help the Bruins beat favored Arkansas for the national championship, but a conversation he had with former coach Jim Harrick before the game.It was in the team's locker room at the Kingdome and Harrick informed Dollar, then a sophomore backup, that he would play a great deal for an injured Tyus Edney. "I thought he was kidding, messing with me," Dollar said yesterday.

X-rays yesterday morning were negative, and he was diagnosed with a sprain, which was treated at the University of Washington's training room.

Somehow, the little team and the little coach who's made a career out of making magic with mirrors and moondust, did it again last night.In one of the wildest and most improbable endings in the recent history of the NCAA tournament, the 13th-seeded Tigers scored the last nine points to upset defending national champion UCLA, 43-41, in the opening round of the Southeast Regional at the RCA Dome.
