What: NCAA national championshipWhere: Continental Airlines Arena, East Rutherford, N.J.When: Today, 9: 22 p.m.Line: Kentucky by 14Key matchups: The best matchups are inside, where Kentucky's Antoine Walker will guard John Wallace and the Wildcats' Walter McCarty will go against Otis Hill. Because Syracuse has two good post players, it will be harder for Kentucky to double down on defense. Another key will be how much damage Kentucky can do inside against Syracuse's 2-3 zone.Why Kentucky can win: Because of its superior depth and the confidence it gained with a close win over UMass.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Normalcy has returned to the University of Kentucky basketball team and its coach, Rick Pitino. Those unfamiliar with what life is generally like in Lexington for the Wildcats should know this: It only means that things are not very normal at all.Kentucky, the shackles removed from its two-year NCAA probation, is once again in the national spotlight. A 76-74 victory over then-No. 9 Indiana here Saturday raised the expectations of the Wildcats' insatiable fans.And Pitino, whose status has gone from savior to saint in his first two seasons in the bluegrass, is being asked if Kentucky can win it all this season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- His name is not a household word, and his statistics (4.9 points, 4.3 rebounds) don't exactly demand further investigation.Yet, save for point guard Travis Ford, no one was more visible fo Kentucky yesterday than Jared Prickett, a 6-foot-9 freshman from Fairmont, W.Va., famous as the native turf of Mary Lou Retton.Prickett was the only first-year player on the all-Southeas Regional tournament team after garnering 22 points and 11 rebounds in the Wildcats' march to the Final Four field against Florida State.

SOMETIMES IT IS best to tell the partial truth, and nothing but the partial truth. One of those occasions might be the first time you serve folks a bowl of burgoo. "What is it?" first-timers will ask. "It hails from Kentucky," the host will answer, adding, "It is like a stew. It is brown. Try some." That is pretty much what happened recently when Lewis. C. Strudwick, a Baltimore attorney, served burgoo -- a free-form concoction that contains vegetables, spices and meats of questionable origins -- to a group of unsuspecting eaters during a luncheon meeting in downtown Baltimore.

PHILADELPHIA -- Like the man once said, it's deja vu all over again: Duke vs. Kentucky and batten down the hatches.More than a quarter-century ago, the first time Cole Field House in College Park served as the Final Four site, these two longtime titans of college hoops met for what everyone figured was the national title of 1966 in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament.Clear to mind are the casts: Duke featured Jack Marin, Steve Vacendak, Bob Verga, Bob Reilly and Mike Lewis while the smoothies from Lexington included Pat Riley, Louie Dampier, Tommy Kron, Larry Conley and Thad Jaracz.

Let's look at what we know so far about Maryland's men's basketball nonconference schedule. We know about the Kentucky game in Brooklyn (the Barclays Center Classic) on Nov. 9. We know about the game at Northwestern in the ACC / Big Ten Challenge on Nov. 27. Maryland is committed to play again in the BB&T tournament at Washington's Verizon Center in December. While final details are being worked out, the Terps are expected to play George Mason this year. And then there are three more games - LIU-Brooklyn, Morehead State and Lafayette - that the Terps will host as part of the Barclays tournament.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Since his team lost at home to Pittsburgh in the preseason National Invitation Tournament, Kentucky basketball coach Rick Pitino has been trying to convince anyone who cared to listen that the 14th-ranked Wildcats were overrated and not quite the 22-9 overachievers they were last year.It worked for a while, but won't anymore. When Indiana guard Greg Graham's 21-footer hit the back rim with two seconds remaining yesterday at the Hoosier Dome, Kentucky had secured a 76-74 victory over the ninth-ranked Hoosiers.

SAN ANTONIO -- They disposed of the defending champion, then exposed the nation's top-ranked team. Courtesy of Utah, the final of the NCAA basketball tournament will be the first without a No. 1 seed since 1991, but there's a Goliath like no other in the path of this season's David."

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The ballyhooed confrontation between All-Americans Jamal Mashburn and Rodney Rogers was strictly a washout last night.Mashburn and his Kentucky teammates decked Rogers and Wake Forest with a never-knew-what-hit-them blitz and galloped away from the Deacons, 103-69, last night at the Charlotte Coliseum in the NCAA Southeast Regional semifinals.The knockout came before the fight had begun with the top-seeded Wildcats blowing out to a 60-26 halftime advantage. Rogers was in foul trouble with four personals a minute into the second half, but it hardly mattered after Wake Forest (21-9)
