WASHINGTON - Nene grinned, grabbed the bottom of the net and gleefully swung side to side while waiting for his turn during a post-practice mid-range shooting competition on Thursday with teammate Trevor Booker. Every time Booker made a shot, he moved aside, only to watch in frustration as Nene connected and laughed. Booker held his own but eventually had to concede defeat to the physically imposing Brazilian big man with the stunningly smooth jumper. Nene's defensive aggressiveness, savvy passing and wily gamesmanship vaulted the Washington Wizards to a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series against the Chicago Bulls, with Game 3 tonight at Verizon Center . But that jump shot - which Nene spent about 30 minutes mastering with Booker after practice - has repeatedly demoralized the Bulls' vaunted defense and flummoxed Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah.

Jimmer, Rubio look good K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Every NBA season presents surprises, but the fact Jimmer Fredette is more than just a shooter has to rank up there for this crazy campaign. Fredette still makes rookie mistakes, but his decision-making process is better than projected and he isn't the statue on defense some had predicted. Another rookie, Ricky Rubio, also has surprised by being better than his considerable hype. Granted, he's a non-traditional rookie, but his ability to keep a live dribble and patiently wait for plays to develop belies his lack of NBA experience.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Sitting on the court, Corey Brewer watched his off-balance shot touch off the backboard and drop through the basket. Brewer leaped to his feet and began screaming, celebrating the biggest basket of his life on the biggest stage of his career. Brewer's six-foot jumper, which came after an offensive rebound and a stumble down the lane, gave Florida a one-point lead with 27.5 seconds to play last night. His ensuing free throw, and two later from Al Horford, provided the final margin of victory - Florida 57, Georgetown 53 - and put the Gators in the NCAA's Elite Eight for the first time since their run to the national final in 2000.

The kid's fun. That's the best way to put it. He is vibrant and passionate, savvy and skilled, well-versed and well-traveled, and all of it makes him fun to watch, fun to interview. Everywhere he has flair - in his hair, in his words, in the way he goes about his business on the court. He may be only 21 and best known as Florida's 6-foot-11 sophomore forward. But numbers and labels can't confine him, can't confine all that is Joakim Noah. "I am large, I contain multitudes," Walt Whitman wrote in Leaves of Grass.

ATLANTA -- For the past year, since Florida won the 2006 national championship and three potential first-round NBA draft picks decided to return to school, those within the program have been asked ad nauseam if they can win it again. How many times, exactly, have they been asked? "Eighty-six thousand, three-hundred and forty-four," Florida center Al Horford said with a smile and zero hesitation. Now the question will finally be answered. Florida (34-5) is on the brink of history. A win over Ohio State (35-3)

Atlanta -- The day before the national semifinals, the Florida players, almost to a man, presented "hate" as their motivational theme for the Final Four. The other teams hate us because we have what they want, they said. Other fans hate us because we're the champs. Everybody wants to see us get knocked off. "I'm not talking about someone trying to kill me," the Gators' Joakim Noah said Friday. "When I say `hate,' I'm talking about all the doubters. There have been a lot of doubters this year.

Saying he was "not at all proud," Bulls executive John Paxson apologized Tuesday to the organization and newly fired coach Vinny Del Negro for their late-season altercation but also made it clear he plans to stick around. General manager Gar Forman insisted the postgame altercation March 30 in a dispute over Joakim Noah 's playing time played no part in Del Negro's firing, that the Bulls simply needed a change "to take this team to another level" after Del Negro led them to a 41-41 record and a first-round playoff exit in each of his two seasons.
