CHARLOTTE, N.C. - In the final 90 seconds of North Carolina State's 86-82 victory over Maryland, three players took NBA-range jump shots. Two of the shots - from Drew Nicholas and Juan Dixon of Maryland - seemed to have plausible chances of going in. They missed. The third - from N.C. State's Julius Hodge - looked nothing like anything a shot doctor would prescribe. Of course, it went in. "I don't mind a guy taking a nice-looking shot," a resigned Gary Williams said after his top-seeded team was upset in the Atlantic Coast Conference semifinals, "but that was unbelievable."

NBA PLAYOFF Wish No. 1: Michael Jordan suits up for the Wizards and Bulls ... at the same time. NBA Playoff Wish No. 2: The Celtics make it interesting by going all the way to the Eastern Conference finals, but lose before the Red Sox and Patriots Nations get too carried away with the lunatic notion of Boston/New England scoring sports' unprecedented championship trifecta. A Super Bowl and World Series are plenty, folks. NBA Playoff Wish No. 3: Jerry West's Grizzlies upset the Western Conference's top-seeded and free-wheeling Suns.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland Terrapins figured they had more depth than North Carolina State last night, and they were right. That, coupled with the energy supplied by a friendly sellout crowd, helped the 10th-ranked Terps strengthen their hold on first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a strong second half that produced a 75-60 victory before 17,950 at Comcast Center. Senior point guard Steve Blake led Maryland with 20 points, senior guard Drew Nicholas and senior forward Tahj Holden added 13 points.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Julius Hodge said he would rather meet Dave Chappelle than any NBA star. The N.C. State point forward and funny man, however, wishes his senior season weren't unfolding like an installment of "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong," a staple of Chappelle's show on Comedy Central. With the 2004 NBA draft fixated on high-schoolers and foreigners, Hodge heeded his mother's plea to get a degree and became the first Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year to return to campus since Tim Duncan stayed at Wake Forest in 1996.

East Regional at MCI Center No. 2 Connecticut (25-6) vs. No. 7 N.C. State (23-10) Time: 2:30 p.m. Conferences: Connecticut, Big East; N.C. State, Atlantic Coast. Outlook: The big question is whether N.C. State players such as Marcus Melvin, Julius Hodge and Ilian Evtimov can be enough of a nuisance to make up for a size disadvantage against the frontcourt duo of Emeka Okafor (6-9, 240) and Johnnie Selvie (6-7, 235), who combined for 26 rebounds and six blocks against Hampton on Friday.

Key question: What kind of impact will Georgetown transfer Tony Bethel have on the court? The arrival of the point guard, a double-digit scorer for the Hoyas in 2002-03, was cited by Hodge as a prime reason he returned to Raleigh rather than enter the NBA draft.
