COLLEGE PARK -- Gary Williams might have been interested if the Bullets' job had opened last summer -- real interested.Maryland was coming off a disappointing season. Williams was drawing criticism for his recruiting. The NBA probably never looked so good.So much has changed since then. The Terps are 18-4 after last night's 66-55 victory after North Carolina State. Williams' star is again on the rise.But guess what?He's happy right where he is.Bullets general manager Wes Unseld said the team would not hire a college coach to replace Jim Lynam, so for now, the issue is on the back burner.

LANDOVER -- A quick glance at last night's Washington-Boston box score might lead some to believe that the Bullets played well. Five players scored in double figures, the team shot better than 50 percent and Chris Webber flirted with a triple double.The reality is that the Bullets won because they played the Celtics, who could do little right in the fourth quarter.After leading by as many as 12 points in the third quarter, the Celtics went flat in the fourth. The Bullets outscored the Celtics 29-10, and Boston was scoreless over the final 6: 06.That was enough of a collapse to give the Bullets an uneasy 106-92 win before a sellout crowd at USAir Arena.

That was the 1993 draft. Where did those notes come from?This time, it was Glenn Robinson, Jason Kidd, Grant Hill and Donyell Marshall, save for Hill, kids with college eligibility remaining.Understandable mistake. Every year, it's pretty much the same thing: Great hoopla, music, noise, cheering, sometimes a groan or two.

MILWAUKEE -- There may be a time when the Washington Bullets reach those NBA expectations that many have predicted for them. If they do, the Bullets may point to last night as the game that turned their season around.Sparked by a fourth-quarter lineup that included four reserves, the Bullets came through with their biggest defensive stretch of the season. That pressure helped the Bullets run off 15 straight points during a span of 3 1/2 minutes and sparked a 95-90 win over the Milwaukee Bucks before 16,508 at the Bradley Center.

Ford will speed the tempo, with Brown and Shaw pushing the ball up the floor.
