CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - An obscene percentage of Barclay boys are incarcerated or dead. You think Melvin Scott, a survivor of that Baltimore neighborhood, is going to gripe about a diminished role with the North Carolina basketball team? His mom cleans toilets at an elementary school. You think Scott would leave the Tar Heels over the indignity of spending his senior season behind Rashad McCants? Absolutely, would be the response of the people who encountered Scott a decade ago, the principals who expelled him, the classmates he beat up, the citizenry frightened by the "ripping and running" that made him seem destined to spend his young adult years at the Fallsway Hilton instead of the Dean Dome.

ST. LOUIS - Illinois point guard Deron Williams might not get his due until the NBA draft in June, when he could be taken over Raymond Felton for the first time. In the summer of 2001, Felton and Williams were entering their senior years of high school - Williams in Texas and Felton in South Carolina. Both wanted to attend North Carolina, but then-Tar Heels coach Matt Doherty could take only one. "I wanted to go [to Chapel Hill], but it didn't happen," Williams said. "They recruited me, but I was the second option to Felton."

COLLEGE PARK - Jamar Smith scored 22 points, John Gilchrist had 20 and Maryland cranked up its defense in the second half to defeat No. 9 North Carolina, 90-84, last night at Comcast Center. After yielding a season-high 49 points in the first half, Maryland (10-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) put the clamps on a powerful offense that surpassed 100 points in each of its first two conference games. Sean May scored 18 points and Raymond Felton added 16 for the Tar Heels (10-3, 1-2), who have lost five straight regular- season games to Maryland.

The long three at the buzzer, which lifted Baltimore's Southern boys basketball team past Gwynn Park, 65-62, at the Woodlawn Warriors Classic Mixer last night, is what will be remembered most. But the rest of the night for Melvin Scott, who got the No. 6-ranked Bulldogs (3-1) out fast and then brought them back, was steady and impressive. The junior guard finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and three steals to carry the load against the stubborn opponent from Prince George's County.

Spreading the floor and stalling to protect a lead is a basic strategy in basketball, but rarely is it employed by a heavily-favored team midway through the third quarter with the margin at only two points.But that's precisely what visiting and No. 3-ranked Southern did to unranked Dulaney during yesterday's opening round of Class 4A North playoffs.With no shot clock to force the action, the Bulldogs dribbled off more than 10 minutes of the second-half clock and hit enough free throws down the stretch to escape with a 35-33 victory.

Being considered one of the 20 best high school basketball players in America can carry with it enormous pressures and responsibilities. But two-time All-Metro pick Melvin Scott of Southern of Baltimore has learned to play the game, on and off the court. "I understand that there's a certain image that you have to have, certain roles you have to play on the court, in the classroom, with your friends. You have to get used to it," said Scott, 18. "I have to be a role model, because I'm the guy my teammates have to see as a leader.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Sometimes, when no one else is around, Melvin Scott will duck into the Dean E. Smith Center and soak up his surroundings. He will lift weights or practice his jump shot, walk to half court, pause and look around - at the jerseys of former North Carolina basketball greats hanging from the rafters, at the seemingly endless rows of seats rising toward banners commemorating Atlantic Coast Conference and national championships. "Sometimes, I act like, hey, I'm used to it," said Scott, the Tar Heels' freshman point guard.
