Rafer Alston can remember the play. It came in the middle of a three-on-one fast break at New York's famed Rucker Park, on a summer night nearly 14 years ago. Alston started skipping down the court, dribbling on his knees, rising quickly before wrapping the ball around the back of a defender and delivering it to one of his teammates. Alston was already well-known on the city's Amateur Athletic Union circuit. But now, his basketball persona was born. "Everyone started calling me `Skip To My Lou,' " Alston, now 28 and a point guard with the Toronto Raptors, recalled recently.

ATLANTA -- Duke senior Greg Koubek hasn't taken hi demotion this season personally.He knows that his coach, Mike Krzyzewski, has to use his best players at the right time. All Koubek can hope is that he'll be sharp and ready when the seventh-ranked Blue Devils need him."There's a lot of talent on this team," said Koubek, a 6-foot-6 senior forward. "I just have to keep going out there and knowing my role."Last night, Koubek, who scored just three points in Duke's 77-75 win over No. 23 Georgia Tech, did what is commonly known as "the little things that don't show up in the box score."

Forget the seniors, juniors and even the diaper-dandy freshmen. The three impact players in college basketball this season are sophomores.Everyone has heard of two of them -- Louisiana State's 7-foot-2 center Shaquille O'Neal and Georgia Tech point guard Kenny Anderson -- but the third, 6-6 swingman Jim Jackson from Ohio State, may have the best overall game of the three. Yet he has received the least attention.Jackson, who contributed 20 points to fourth-ranked Ohio State's 93-85 victory over third-ranked Indiana Monday in Bloomington, has been the catalyst behind the Buckeyes' surprising 16-0 start, scoring 19.5 points per game, fifth best in the Big Ten. He's shooting 60 percent from the floor, good for third in the league.

He would be swimming in a pool of water, and suddenly he would realize he was not alone. A shark was in the water with him.Bobby Hurley never waited around long enough to see if it was a hammerhead or great white, or if, by some coincidence, it happened to be chewing a white towel. Even asleep, he knew the right move to make. "I'd get out of that water as fast as I could," he said yesterday in the Duke locker room at Cole Field House.
