EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- If there was any justice in the world, any mercy, any milk of human kindness, the ball would have swished through the net. After all, fair's fair (Confucius).Mark Macon was sure he had a bull's eye. Hey, who would know better than a guy who had dropped 2,609 points through the hoop for Temple during the last 125 games?The contest wasn't riding on the three-point shot heard 'round the world -- uh, from Philadelphia to Chapel Hill at least -- dispatched by Macon with three seconds remaining.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- He was a first-team All-American as a freshman and since has won Atlantic 10 Player of the Year and all-conference honors, but some people will swear that Temple guard Mark Macon never has been the same since his last game at Meadowlands Arena three years ago.A freshman then, Macon averaged more than 20 points and led the top-ranked Owls to the 1988 National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament East Regional final. But, just one step from the Final Four, Macon was hounded into a 6-for-29 shooting game in Temple's 63-53 upset loss to Duke.

Here's a rare white Burgundy that delivers first-class flavor and intensity at a reasonable price. This medium-bodied, toasty, well-rounded wine offers intriguing flavors of nuts, banana, pear and lemon without any undue emphasis on a single component. It's not a dramatic wine but a complete, satisying chardonnay that would perfectly complement a salmon fillet. By the way, Domaine Valette is on a real hot streak. Well-heeled connoisseurs of white Burgundy should make a special effort to find its superb 1993 Pouilly-Fuisse Clos Reyssie Reserve Particuliere.

Macon Hardy enjoys fashion, but don't call this business development representative for ETI Professionals Inc. trendy. "Having timeless pieces and looking put-together is important to me. I don't like clothes that will be out of style next season. If you think you're going to look silly in it next year, then don't buy it," says the 23-year-old Federal Hill resident. When we "glimpsed" Hardy at Cinghiale in Inner Harbor East, she looked every one of her "5 feet 9 inches and some change" in her "conservative and classy" style.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The shot missed, and the coach cried. That's how these stories go. The coach, wiping his eyes, would note that he'd always told his players life wasn't fair. But who's to say?Mark Macon, who took that errant shot, got his chance to make a statement yesterday and pretty much made it in capital letters with lots of exclamation points and most of your other standard punctuation marks.Isn't that enough?I mean, how fair does life have to be?Temple, for which Macon plays and the weeping John Chaney coaches, was eliminated by North Carolina yesterday from the NCAA tournament in the East Regional final, 75-72, when Macon's last-second three-pointer fell just short.

It was homecoming at Western Maryland College yesterday afternoon and a chance for the Green Terrors to forget all about their three-game losing streak.When sophomore quarterback Brian Van Deusen threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Carmen Felus in the right corner of the end zone with a little more than five minutes remaining to give the Green Terrors a 13-point lead over Randolph-Macon, it appeared things were well in hand.That wasn't the case. The Yellow Jackets scored 13 unanswered points in those final five minutes to come out of Bair Stadium with a 27-27 tie.The only thing that went right for Western Maryland down the stretch came when kicker Tony Labrador missed the extra point after Randolph-Macon's final touchdown.

Tim Smith is a slightly reserved basketball talent from Millersville, where he played for Old Mill High. Jamal Brunt is a more forceful big-city personality on and off the basketball court, learning the game at St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. The two 6-foot-2 senior co-captains form the starting backcourt for Randolph-Macon College, which sports a 21-1 record and is the No. 3-ranked Division III men's team in the nation. Smith and Brunt have helped the program in Ashland, Va., 30 miles north of Richmond, resurface as a national force after a 30-year hiatus.
