Shortly after joining the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association, Margot Amelia faced every new executive's nightmare. A key manager left. There Amelia was, new to BACVA and facing a vacancy - in this case the senior director of tourism marketing. But rather than rushing to action, she decided to get to know the association and her staff before filling the post. It didn't take long for Amelia to spot Kenneth M. Hemsley Jr., BACVA's 41-year-old group tour and international sales manager.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Miami Hurricanes guard Johnny Hemsley stands outside his team's locker room door, points symbolically at it, and makes a wish. "I wish a lot of reporters and media people could come into the locker room, or to the practices or to a lot of things that we do off the court and see how me and [coach Leonard Hamilton] interact. It really is a beautiful thing. It shows on the court also because I don't mind working hard for a guy like Coach Hamilton." Hemsley, who attended Southern High in Baltimore, can talk about his decision to go to Miami, his team's chances today in the second round of the NCAA tournament against Ohio State, his old days in his hometown and building a winning tradition with the Hurricanes with very little change in his demeanor.

And afterward, he took a sabbatical from basketball.Time off has worked wonders for Hemsley's enthusiasm, as evidenced by his all-out efforts in recent practices heading into tonight's Capital Classic at USAir Arena."Defense, rebounding, diving for balls, bringing it up the court -- I'm all over the place," said Hemsley, who will sign with the University of Miami today as the NCAA's spring signing period for basketball players begins.

Seventh-seeded Tulsa limited Hemsley's touches and moved into its first regional final with an 80-71 victory over Miami at the Erwin Center.

Johnny Hemsley says he won't be pushed -- not by friends, family or college recruiters."Everybody wants to see me stay close to home, especially my family," said the smooth 6-foot-5 senior from Baltimore's Southern High. "If I'm pushed, I'll be the one doing the pushing. I'm the one who's going to do the four years in college, and the hard work on and off the court."At which college is the issue.Is it close-to-home Georgetown, as speculation insists?Or closer-to-home Maryland?"I wouldn't say that," Hemsley said of talk that he's already decided on the Hoyas.

The way things have gone the past few years, the University of Miami might start becoming known as a basketball school.While the problems the football team has had on and off the field have been well-documented, the basketball team has quietly become a solid upper-echelon program in the Big East.With road victories this year over St. John's and Syracuse, and a near-upset of then top-ranked Connecticut at home, the Hurricanes have gone where no team in recent school history has ever ventured: into the Top 25."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Ohio State coach Jim O'Brien said Miami was just bigger. That statement can go for both the size advantage the Hurricanes had at virtually every position and how the team played overall in its 75-62 win in front of a sold-out Gaylord Entertainment Center yesterday in the second round of the NCAA South Regional. The bigger reference is also appropriate for Hurricanes guard Johnny Hemsley's play. Hemsley, out of Southern High in Baltimore, scored a game-high 24 points, six more than his average.
