Dave Odom was there the last time."I remember sitting on the bench next to Terry Holland before the game, saying, 'I hope they both play well, but we win,' " Odom recalled this week. "In the first half, they tried to dunk everything. It wasn't a pretty sight."Odom, then an assistant at the University of Virginia, was talking about a showdown between Cavaliers All-American Ralph Sampson and Georgetown prodigy Patrick Ewing early in the 1982-83 season at the Capital Centre.Though the Cavaliers won, the Sampson-Ewing matchup didn't live up to its billing.

The void is upon us. The NFL regular season is over and the baseball season is still far enough away that you can't quite imagine the smell of fresh grass and smoke from Boog's. So what to do for the fantasy junkie robbed of his or her chief imaginary pursuits? It's an annual dilemma and I offer here a few coping strategies (though this list is hardly exhaustive.) 1) Abstain. I know it sounds radical, but you could just not think about fantasy sports for the next month to six weeks. It's cheap, and it'll make your boss and significant other happy.

When the big man who would transport Massachusetts to the Final Four arrived, he turned out to be a tall ship, not an aircraft carrier.He might be the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, but he's studying to be a high school principal -- not bad for someone who didn't care about books or basketball when he was 16.The Minutemen feed off the center who wants to be a shooting guard, but his own lousy eating habits contributed to his midseason collapse.Marcus Camby, all 6 feet 11 of him, may be a walking contradiction, but make no mistake: UMass is two wins away from an NCAA title because, in Camby, it has the best college player in the country.

WASHINGTON - Denver Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik turned his team and franchise over to rookie forward Carmelo Anthony yesterday. It may be a move based on desperation as well as inspiration, but it tells you that Anthony is special. Not too many NBA coaches give the keys to a 19-year-old. Not too many NBA coaches are allowed the time to tilt back the seat, kick up their feet and see where the journey ends. But after a shoot-around yesterday at MCI Center, Bzdelik told Anthony it was time for him to take over a team that had lost eight of its past nine games.

The focus is on a pair of All-Americans, junior C Marcus Camby (20.3 ppg, 8.3 rpg) for the Minutemen and sophomore G Allen Iverson (25.1 ppg, 4.8 apg) for the Hoyas, but both have excellent supporting casts. UMass tries to funnel penetrators toward Camby, but he has been in foul trouble in the past two tournament games, and Georgetown will win any battle of attrition.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It pays to trust a guy named Isiah with a prophecy.Marcus Camby did. Despite late-minute talk to the contrary, the former University of Massachusetts star center took Toronto Raptors general manager Isiah Thomas at his word when Thomas said a couple of weeks ago that "Marcus Camby is a Raptor," meaning the team would select him as the second overall choice in last night's NBA draft.Thomas came through on his statement, making Camby Toronto's second-ever first round pick.

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- If there was going to be a snow-filled pothole along the road to an undefeated regular season for the University of Massachusetts, this was going to be the time and place.Virginia Tech had been waiting for yesterday afternoon since it decided to move to the Atlantic 10 this season from the Metro Conference. The storm had forced the UMass itinerary to Plan B, a detour to Greensboro, N.C., late Thursday that disrupted the Minutemen's plans. A hostile crowd, a 10th-ranked opponent, a stressful trip.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When the Philadelphia 76ers last had the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft a decade ago, they dealt the pick in what turned out to be one of the worst blunders in franchise history. There were no deals last night, as the team addressed its strong need for a point guard.And that point guard turned out to be Allen Iverson, who became the first point guard selected with the top pick since the Los Angeles Lakers took Magic Johnson in 1979. The Sixers did so after fielding some offers for the pick, including one in which the Washington Bullets offered a package that included Philadelphia native Rasheed Wallace.

Point guardAvery Johnson vs. Charlie Ward: Johnson has done a great job hitting open shots during the playoffs, shooting an impressive 48.3 percent from the field. He has flourished since the Spurs went to the pick-and-roll earlier in the season, and is capable of beating a defender off the dribble. Ward is a starter in name only -- the bulk of the important minutes will go to Chris Childs, a solid defender who also hit several big three-pointers in the Indiana series.Edge: SpursShooting guardMario Elie vs. Allan Houston: Elie provides a toughness that the Spurs had lacked in the past.

Marcus Camby is to the University of Massachusetts what Joe Smith was to the University of Maryland a year ago. That is, an intimidator on defense, a finisher on offense, and Mr. Clutch in the game's critical moments.Camby put it all on display this week when he directed UMass' convincing 92-82 upset of No. 1 Kentucky at the Great Eight tournament in Auburn Hills, Mich.His performance was as remarkable for its dominance as its range. He scored 32 points -- often over double- and triple-team defenses -- rejected five shots and corralled nine rebounds.
