SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Standing 6 feet 7 was no problem for Harper Williams and Lou Roe in the Atlantic 10 Conference, where each dominated on the inside in helping Massachusetts to two straight league championships.But yesterday, against a Virginia team that is considered small by Atlantic Coast Conference standards, the two all-conference performers proved to be no factor.Williams scored five points and Roe four -- season lows for both -- and No. 3 seed Massachusetts, despite a late rally, was never able to recover from a poor first half in a 71-56 loss to sixth seed Virginia in a second-round NCAA tournament game at the Carrier Dome.

MERRIMACK, N.H. -- "Nobody ever says to me, 'you're wrong on the issues,'" Paul Tsongas observes. "They say, 'you don't give a good speech' or 'you're a Greek.'"As a piece of political analysis, that is as good as any. In the aftermath of Michael S. Dukakis, another Greek-American from Massachusetts doesn't seem to be just what the doctor ordered. And no one ever accused Paul Tsongas of a rhetorical style that sends his followers walking through walls.One result is that the onetime senator from Massachusetts has been consigned to what is euphemistically called the "second tier" of candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.

WASHINGTON -- Happiness is several hundred happy people at your feet, the leader of the free world a long jump shot to your right, and the revelers below wanting to touch you instead of him.That was the scene Kwame Evans soaked up yesterday, when the junior guard out of Baltimore's Southern High led George Washington to a 78-75 victory over No. 1 Massachusetts. Evans dropped a game-high 27 points on the Minutemen, then perched himself atop a basket, partly out of joy and partly to escape a sellout crowd that included President Clinton.

After the Maryland basketball team had finished its upset of Massachusetts in the second round of last year's NCAA tournament, neither team was thinking much about the rematch.The Terrapins left Wichita, Kan., looking ahead to their trip to the Sweet 16 against Michigan. The Minutemen left the Kansas Coliseum looking back at their shocking defeat. But in time, both would start looking ahead to today's nationally televised showdown at the Baltimore Arena."The whole summer, the whole preseason, we've been looking forward to playing them again," Massachusetts center Marcus Camby said earlier this week in Amherst.

PHILADELPHIA -- Maybe they'll fall at Virginia Tech in two weeks.Perhaps someone will knock them off in the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament.Or maybe nobody is going to beat Massachusetts, and the Minutemen are going to stay unbeaten right through the NCAA tournament.The nation's top-ranked team continued its perfection with a 59-35 victory over Temple at McGonigle Hall last night. Massachusetts (20-0, 8-0) handled its toughest road test of the season with aplomb, as the Minutemen crept to a 30-12 lead at the half and befuddled the Owls' offensive scheme.

BOSTON -- In a case that has generated widespread publicity on both sides of the Atlantic, an unemployed computer engineer from England was arraigned yesterday in the shooting deaths of his American wife and infant daughter in Massachusetts. Neil Entwistle, 27, in shackles and handcuffs in Framingham District Court, pleaded not guilty to two charges of first-degree murder in the deaths of Rachel Souza Entwistle, 27, and the couple's 9-month-old, Lillian Rose. During a two-minute proceeding, Entwistle was ordered held without bail pending a probable-cause hearing March 15. He stared straight ahead and did not make eye contact with his wife's mother and stepfather.

Of all the dubious claims made in the editorial "Maryland's health care imperative" (Jan. 27) the idea that the state should move forward on implementing the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) in order to curb rising health care costs stands out as the most unsupportable. This legislation will not hold down health care costs and, in fact, where a similar plan has been tried in Massachusetts, costs to both health care consumers and the state government have increased dramatically.

BOSTON -- With the mandate that everyone in Massachusetts have health insurance taking effect today, more than 130,000 people - about a third of those who were uninsured a year ago - now have coverage, officials say. But most of those who have signed up are poor enough to qualify for free or state-subsidized insurance. People who must pay the full cost themselves - and who are crucial to the success of the plan - might now be a majority of the state's uninsured; not all are rushing to get coverage.
