There was a time, perhaps less than a decade ago, when John Lucas did not want to be in Washington. He did not want to be in a city in which he had gained more notice in the early 1980s for his cocaine use than for being a member of the Washington Bullets basketball team.It was a city that knew him well, from his days as an all-America point guard in basketball and top-notch tennis player at the University of Maryland from 1972 to 1976. He was perhaps the most fabled athlete in the history of the University of Maryland at College Park, but in the NBA years to follow he had become better known for missing practices and games, and running around with a questionable crowd.

Like many 12 year olds, C.J. Fair dabbled in many different sports. He played some baseball, a little football and anything his friends were into at the time. Then he started "growing like a weed," as his father Carl put it, and Carl asked him to pick one sport. C.J. chose basketball, and he and his friends - Antonio and Will Barton , Josh Selby and Nick Faust - began dominating anyone who stood in their way. They formed a super team, as the lanky lefty C.J. continued to sharpen his game at the John Eager Howard Community Center and around Baltimore playgrounds.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Before taking the floor at Kemper Arena yesterday afternoon, Kansas guard Michael Lee wrote a one-word reminder to himself on both sneakers. Confidence. If Lee ever loses his confidence again, he may think back to this second-round NCAA tournament game, when he scored nine consecutive Kansas points to help the No. 4 seed Jayhawks to a 78-63 victory over No. 12 seed Pacific before a sellout crowd of 17,667. Kansas (23-8) was clinging to a 53-51 lead over Pacific (25-8)

Notre Dame's Mike Brey doused speculation that he could be Maryland's men's basketball coach, leaving a short list of other candidates as members of the university community counseled a restive fan base to be patient. "I think the person that's right for the job is probably still out there," said Len Elmore, a former Maryland and NBA player and chief executive of iHoops, a youth basketball organization. "My advice is take your time. This is not about next year, it's about the long term," said Elmore, who was on the search committee that selected Kevin Anderson as Maryland's athletic director last year.

COLLEGE PARK -- It was in the afterglow of Sunday's huge win over Missouri that Maryland coach Gary Williams touched lightly on a theme that promises to play handsomely the next three seasons.Speaking of point guard Terrell Stokes' near-record, 12-assist game, Williams said, perhaps only half in jest, "It's too early for records for Terrell."They will come, though, just as surely as next season will come.At a position once manned by John Lucas -- Maryland's quintessential point guard -- Stokes is the real thing.

ATLANTA -- The slight 69-year-old man runs alone on the orange track of the empty Olympic Stadium. But there are ghosts following him: Paavo Nurmi, the "phantom Finn" and greatest Olympic long-distance runner ever. Emil Zapotek, whose gold-medal Triple Crown in the 5,000- and 10,000-meter and marathon races remains unduplicated. And Lasse Viren, the village policeman who ran like a pale, silent river to two gold medals each in Munich and Montreal."I'm breaking all their world records," he thinks as he laps around the track 25 times for 10,000 meters, or six miles and change.
