NEW YORK - As Hubie Brown was holding court with reporters before a game against the New York Knicks last week at Madison Square Garden, an old friend popped his head into the middle of the scrum. "We're still foolin' 'em," Brown said in his famous raspy staccato. In the case of Brown's latest reclamation project, the Memphis Grizzlies, he's also beatin' 'em. With an overall record of 48-26, including an NBA-best 23-5 since Feb. 1, the Grizzlies have made the quantum leap from laughable to respectable to remarkable since Brown took over an 0-8 team early last season.

Both were prized recruits from minuscule towns who grew to become larger than life during their stellar high school careers. Yet, freshmen Brett Nelson and Donnell Harvey are humble -- willingly accepting a lesser role for the good of the team -- though their contributions are probably the biggest reason why Florida went from a Sweet 16 team last year to one playing in the national championship game tonight against Michigan State. Both bring different abilities to the table. Nelson, out of St. Albans, W. Va., is a scoring point guard, whose ability to shoot the three or penetrate to the basket and set up a teammate gives the Gators instant offense when he checks in the game.

With Billy Owens and Tim Hardaway sidelined, Tyrone Hill ejected and Chris Gatling conked on the head, the Golden State Warriors had only six players for last week's second half at Denver. The only other player there, Chris Mullin, was doing radio, so the Warriors didn't even have enough players on the bench to carry Gatling off. It would be nice to report they won, but they didn't.The bright spot in the Warriors season is Latrell Sprewell, the rookie guard and 24th pick in the draft, averaging 20.0 points, 7.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds since March 1. "He's incredible, and he's all ours," says coach Don Nelson.
