DURHAM, N.C -- Jason Williams doesn't want to put too much emphasis on tonight's game between top-ranked Duke and No. 3 Maryland at Cameron Indoor Stadium. When asked last night about the first meeting of the season with the Terrapins, Williams made it sound as if the Blue Devils were playing Clemson. "It's just like any other game," Williams said after practice. "Of course, it's going to be intense and the fans are going to be crazy." Nice try. In reality, Williams and his teammates have been pointing to the renewal of what has become a top rivalry in college basketball since they were heading for Hawaii to play in the Maui Invitational back in November.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The great players take their games to another level when championships are on the line, and that was the major difference between Duke and Maryland last night in an NCAA Final Four game at the Metrodome. It wasn't any difference between Maryland coach Gary Williams and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. Or any hot vs. cold strategy. Duke has two great players in forward Shane Battier and guard Jason Williams. Maryland has a bunch of good players, great depth, but no one yet in the caliber of either Battier or Williams.

BOSTON - Jason Williams stands just yards away from the FleetCenter stage Tuesday night, as Sen. Edward M. Kennedy captivates the packed arena. But he can't see Kennedy, and he can barely hear the Massachusetts senator's voice. Williams, the 22-year-old president of the Baltimore City Young Democrats, holds a pass that allows him into the center's crowded halls but not past the thick black curtains to a coveted spot on the convention floor. Still, Williams has it pretty good compared with the hundreds of college students and young professionals who have trekked to Boston this week to volunteer, advocate, party and soak up the politics - and had little success getting anywhere in the vicinity of many star-packed events.

How two basketball analysts see Maryland vs. Duke: Len Elmore, ESPN analyst and All-America center at Maryland in 1974: Duke generates respect and fear. But in this one, the Blue Devils won't be able to gain currency from their reputation in the form of the opposition's curiosity and intimidation. Maryland knows this team inside out and vice versa. Duke must find a way to slow the Terps' Lonny Baxter, who has been a man among boys in the paint. Always susceptible to an inside presence, the Blue Devils will add to the perimeter pressure to prevent post-entry passes rather than double-up inside.

Nearly two months ago at the annual preseason gathering of Atlantic Coast Conference coaches and select players in Greensboro, N.C., Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski pondered a question about the loss of Shane Battier, and how that would affect Duke's chemistry as the Blue Devils defended their third national title. "The biggest question I have about this team is how are we going to be led?" Krzyzewski said. "I've never had a leader like Shane [now in the NBA with the Memphis Grizzlies]. Anybody that tries to be as good a leader as Shane is going to fail."

CHICAGO - While most fans are checking their NCAA tournament brackets and reeling from the upsets, pro scouts and executives are comparing notes for June's NBA draft. March Madness is the unofficial kickoff for the pro scouting madness that includes so-called pre-draft camps leading up to Chicago's in June and subsequent individual workouts. The Chicago Bulls continue to lead the race for the worst record in the NBA, which will guarantee them no worse than the fourth pick. The consensus No. 1 pick is Duke guard Jason Williams, though several scouts said if high school players were eligible before their class graduates, Ohio prep sensation LeBron James would be the top pick.

DURHAM, N.C. - Jason Williams was headed to Rutgers. He had told the coach, Kevin Bannon, to save a uniform. He had told his friends that he was going to stay home in New Jersey and help bring the state university's basketball program back to national prominence. And then he listened to his mother, Althea, who wanted him to think about playing at Duke. "My mother kind of had to force me to take an unofficial visit," Williams recalled yesterday. There are a lot of teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference that would prefer Williams hadn't been such a dutiful son. Considering what the solidly built, 6-foot-2 sophomore point guard did to Maryland in last month's epic 98-96 overtime victory at Cole Field House, the Terrapins might be at the top that wish list.

MINNEAPOLIS -- By the end, it was the All-Americans -- senior forward Shane Battier and sophomore point guard Jason Williams -- who rose to the occasion with their Duke teammates following. And it was really nothing new. A slow start didn't deter Battier or Williams, who shared the lead role that brought the Blue Devils back from a 22-point first-half deficit for a 95-84 win over Maryland that will send Duke to its ninth national championship game against Arizona tomorrow night. Struggling to find their offense early, Battier scored most of his 10 first-half points just before halftime and then took off in the second half.

MINNEAPOLIS - It has to be a rough morning for Maryland basketball fans. By now, you're late for work because you've stayed up to watch the NCAA basketball championship game. And while you're sipping that coffee, you keep switching the TV channel. Everywhere you look, there is a Blue Devil. Click. It's Shane Battier and Jason Williams on ESPN. Click. It's Coach K on Good Morning America. By the end of tonight, Duke will be featured again on ESPN Classic. Probably, the "Road to Glory" with three of the games against Maryland.

MINNEAPOLIS - Steve Blake and Jason Williams know each other all too well. The respective point guards from Maryland and Duke have faced each other six times over the past two seasons. They roomed together when they played last summer for the U.S. junior national team in Brazil. No one-on-one battle will be watched more closely tomorrow, when Maryland and Duke take the Final Four stage to renew a rivalry that has become possibly the nation's most compelling. And if the Terps advance to Monday's national championship game, Blake probably will have gotten the best of Williams in their fourth showdown this season.

Prediction: Duke has the edge in experience, and you never have to wait long for one of its offensive outbursts. But there's something about the Terps' confidence that makes Maryland look especially dangerous. The Terps do not fear Duke. That's why they'll win tonight, 88-84. How the teams match up Point guard Steve Blake vs. Jason Williams Steve Blake, Maryland: Blake is as good as any distributor of the ball, although he still is prone to taking ill-advised chances and committing turnovers as a result.
