EASTERN CONFERENCE ATLANTIC 1. Philadelphia 76ers 2003-04 record: 33-49 (fifth in Atlantic) Offense: 88.0 (28th) Defense: 90.5 (10th) Coming: Coach Jim O'Brien, Corliss Williamson, Brian Skinner, Kevin Ollie, Kedrick Brown, No. 1 pick Andre Iguodala. Going: Coaches Randy Ayers and Chris Ford, Eric Snow, Derrick Coleman. Outlook: Only in the East would you pick a bickering 33-win team to finish this high. Glenn Robinson could destroy a team's chemistry single-handedly, and putting him together with Allen Iverson didn't work.

"Foreign Affairs" is the made-for-TV sleeper of the month. And, with a bunch of highly promoted network junk-movies on this week, you're liable to miss this little cable gem at 8 tonight on TNT if you're not careful.The film is based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alison Lurie. And the script does the book some justice. But it's Joanne Woodward and Brian Dennehy, the stars, who deserve the prizes for their work in the TV adaptation.Woodward plays Vinnie Minor, a professor of English at a small American college who goes to England for research on her next book.

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said Nate Robinson was not benched for taking a shot at the wrong basket Saturday. The Knicks inbounded to Robinson in the backcourt with 0.5 seconds left in the first quarter of their 98-91 victory at New Jersey. Rather than just hold the ball, or heave one at the basket the Knicks were attacking, Robinson turned and shot at his own basket. The shot went in, but it was released after the buzzer and didn't count. D'Antoni yelled at Robinson on the court between quarters.

Going to St. Petersburg: Its RPI is better than Auburn's. It played a tougher schedule. It couldn't stack up to top-ranked Duke, but who can? This is the year for Maryland to end decades of postseason frustration.Team on the rise: Creighton was 15-8 three weeks ago and given little chance of making the field. It won its last six games, the final three to win the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. That league landed three bids, as many as the Atlantic Coast Conference, and the Blue Jays could give the Terps trouble in the second round.
