COLLEGE PARK -- When Exree Hipp was a Maryland freshman, an NBA scout watched the 6-foot-7, 175-pound forward go on a short scoring burst against Clemson and came away with this impression:"Once he learns the game, he could be a great player."The scout paused."But obviously," he said, "this kid has a lot to learn."Hipp is a junior, an inch taller and nearly 30 pounds heavier. But the physical additions are only part of the adjustments Hipp has made, particularly this season.He has learned to become consistent, scoring in double figures 16 times in 19 games this season.

COLLEGE PARK -- Hipp Van Winkle had to awaken eventually. But after a season-long slumber, you'd think he might have waited to play two good games before complaining about playing time.No such luck.Exree Hipp didn't climb out of bed yawning and stretching, saying he was happy to be back. He leaped out of bed like the Ex-man of old, wondering how Maryland coach Gary Williams could dare hold him down."If I'm playing for four minutes at a time in a stretch, I can never get into a groove," Hipp said yesterday after Maryland's 88-74 victory over Georgia Tech.

LAS VEGAS -- World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Bruce Seldon of Atlantic City, N.J., did not object to fighting on the undercard to Mike Tyson in his non-title bout with Peter McNeeley at the MGM Grand Garden last night.Seldon (33-3, 29 KOs) stopped slow-footed journeyman Joe Hipp of Seattle at 1:47 of the 10th round, as referee Richard Steele decided Hipp, his face a bloody mask, was unfit to continue.But Seldon, who hopes to earn several million dollars by defending his crown against Tyson, hardly looked ready for such a formidable task.

COLLEGE PARK -- Exree Hipp was still sitting around Cole Field House early yesterday morning, talking about his dream of a couple of days before. Call it another of Exree's visions.Last season, he predicted that Maryland would reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament five months before it happened. This time, he envisioned the final score on Tuesday night's game against top-ranked North Carolina."I fell asleep someplace I wasn't supposed to," Hipp said with a smile. "The game was over and the score was Maryland 85, North Carolina 75. Then somebody shut a door and I woke up. I wrote it down in my notebook and then balled up the piece of paper.

For an eatery attached to the high-energy Hippodrome, the Hipp Cafe is notably modest. It's basically a chic little coffeehouse serving stylish noshes. I guess the razzmatazz is saved for the stage. As you probably know, the Hippodrome, which opened in 1914 and closed in 1990, opened again in February. The A-list, high-energy schedule has featured Hairspray, The Producers and Mamma Mia! The cafe, located along with the theater at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center on Eutaw Street, provides a convenient place for a light bite before the show or a rich dessert afterward.

YOU CAN LEAD the culture-starved masses to the revived Hippodrome Theatre, but once you get them there you had better have something for them to nosh on. With that in mind, I ate lunch last week at the newly opened Hipp Cafe, a handsome, hustling, quick-bite kind of place that cozies up to the theater lobby. Sitting under spotlights and surrounded by black-and-white photos of the stars of stage and screen, I got a buzz on. The charge didn't come from my beverage - a glass of club soda - but from the room.

In Baltimore City Two women shot after men break into west-side rowhouse Police were seeking two men who broke into a West Baltimore rowhouse early yesterday and shot two women after ransacking several rooms. It was not known what the intruders were seeking. The men entered the home in the 1600 block of W. Lexington St. about 3:45 a.m., awakened the women - one 35 and the other 43 - and began opening dresser drawers, police said. One woman was shot in the chest and left arm, and the other in the buttock, police said.

WHEN I heard that the Hippodrome was to be refurbished and reopened in 2004, a flood of memories gushed forth - unicyclists, comedians, singers, jugglers, tumblers, trapeze artists, big bands, dog acts, magicians, dancers. All of those vestiges of vaudeville appeared before me, a parade of bygone performers whose purpose it was to make me "ooo" and "ahhh" and laugh until I cried. I grew up in Walbrook in the 1940s. Just about every other Thursday, my mother, my sister and I would board the No. 4 streetcar (Charles and Lexington streets)

After finishing their college basketball careers at the University of Maryland in 1996, Exree Hipp and Johnny Rhodes took their hoop dreams to faraway places. Hipp went to Brazil, Rhodes to Taiwan and Italy. They continue to travel the world, and, as they were in College Park, they are teammates. Tonight will be a homecoming of sorts for the two former Terrapins when their current team, the Harlem Globetrotters, makes a visit to the Towson Center. "It's like being in college for us," Hipp said earlier this week by telephone from Wheeling, W. Va. Except they didn't play nearly 200 games a year at Maryland.

Since Sept. 5, four barns a few miles apart have been set on fire during the night.

COLLEGE PARK -- There were games earlier this season when Exree Hipp dominated, when his above-the-rim athleticism was a little too much for the competition, when Maryland's sophomore forward could do whatever he wanted. Dunks. Three-pointers. Everything.concentrate on just playing," Hipp said. "When a team comes out playing me differently than they did before, it throws me off and sometimes it takes to the end of the game before I get back on track."In Hipp's defense, he's often had to play against opponents who outweigh him, sometimes by 20 or 30 pounds.

POTOMAC -- His friends call him "Ex," which stands for Exree. But it could just as well stand for exciting, in terms of basketball. Or exemplary, in terms of academics.Exree Hipp, who has excelled at both at Harker Prep, hopes to continue to do so at the University of Maryland and for its basketball team next season.Yesterday, Hipp, a 6-foot-6 small forward, became the third highly recruited area player to commit orally to the Terrapins for next season. DeMatha point guard Duane Simpkins and DuVal forward Stacy Robinson committed earlier.

BALTIMORE'S ONCE magnificent Hippodrome theater, whose restoration is a key element of the Schmoke administration's strategy to make the Howard Street corridor an "Avenue of the Arts" -- will soon be donated to the University of Maryland at Baltimore.University spokesman Chris Hart said UM's board of regents approved acceptance of the gift last month and expects transfer of ownership to be completed in the next few days.Hart said the university did not solicit the 1914 theater, which has been closed since 1990, and has no immediate plans for renovation or reuse of it."
