AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- A reporter asked Jason Hart yesterday if he would back down from Michigan State's Mateen Cleaves, causing the Syracuse point guard to do a double-take. Cleaves may represent one of his biggest challenges on the court, but Hart has had other fears. Life-threatening fears. Hart had to survive South Central Los Angeles. He had to survive the guns, the violence, the deaths. The 6-foot-3 senior can painfully recount over 20 friends and acquaintances in his neighborhood who have been killed while he's been at the central New York school.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- It was the classic fable of the tortoise vs. the hare at the Hartford Civic Center last night, and the tortoise won again.Princeton's Ivy League champions used their precise three-point shooting and demoralizing backdoor plays to oust the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, 69-57, in the opening round of the East Regionals.The Tigers (27-1) were not perfect in conducting their usual basketball clinic.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- They've got two of the nation's most exciting offensive talents. They've got perhaps the nation's best defensive player. And it still doesn't look like enough.The Connecticut Huskies probably match up with Duke as well as any team in college basketball, but they're still a decided underdog in tomorrow night's NCAA final.Connecticut clearly was superior to Ohio State last night, yet struggled to a 64-58 victory after leading by nine points in the first half and 10 in the second.
