Mike Bibby doesn't mind the comparisons to Jason Kidd, because he's got a better jump shot than the guy who plays up the road in Phoenix. He doesn't mind being mentioned in the same breath with Jacque Vaughn, because he's probably got a better future than the Kansas leader he'll bump into in the NCAA Sweet 16.There is one ace point guard, however, whom Bibby would prefer not to be linked to. That would be Henry Bibby, the most successful floor leader ever...

WASHINGTON - Eddie Jordan kept looking down his bench, hoping that Larry Hughes would suddenly reappear in uniform, or that one of the other injured Washington Wizards would get healthy in a hurry. As the Wizards coach looked at the court late in last night's game against the Sacramento Kings at a sold-out MCI Center, he wished he had Hughes or someone other than Gilbert Arenas and Steve Blake to make a shot, hit a free throw or even hold onto the ball. Arenas tied his career high with 43 points, and Blake came off the depleted Washington bench to chip in 17 points and five assists, but most of the Wizards looked a bit lost down the stretch as a seven-point lead with a little less than six minutes remaining turned into a frustrating 110-108 defeat.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Oh, the motivation running through Andre Miller's head yesterday morning.Miller runs the point for No. 7 Utah and was a first-team selection in the Western Athletic Conference. His coach, Rick Majerus, said, "I wouldn't trade Miller for anyone, but I stand by my statement that Mike Bibby is the best point guard in the nation."Bibby is one-half of Arizona's All-America backcourt, the other being Miles Simon. Four years ago, Simon was the premier backcourt prospect in Southern California, at a time when the region's guard talent ran deep.

ATLANTA - They have been through the routine countless times now: the practices and film sessions, the pre- and post-game news conferences and, most importantly, the games. They came to Kansas together last summer, hoping someday to play in the Final Four, hoping someday to win a national championship. Tonight, they will play a significant role in determining the outcome for the Jayhawks in their national semifinal game here against Maryland. Point guard Aaron Miles, swingman Keith Langford and forward Wayne Simien have grown immeasurably in recent weeks.

One day after the Chicago Bulls made Elton Brand the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, he met with the Chicago media and spoke happily of assisting in that team's rebuilding. That same day, No. 3 choice Baron Davis met with the media in Charlotte, N.C., expressing his joy over playing with the Hornets. And what about former Maryland star Steve Francis, the No. 2 pick by the Vancouver Grizzlies who was last seen sulking on draft night? He had a secretive visit to Vancouver on Sunday, just days after his apparent displeasure over being drafted by the Grizzlies.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Terrell Stokes against Mike Bibby?Just thinking about that matchup is enough to send Maryland basketball fans to the aspirin bottle.And wait until the reality of it unfolds tonight when the Terps play Arizona in the NCAA West Regional semifinals at the Arrowhead Pond.The Terps believe they can spring an upset on the defending national champions, but the point guard matchup isn't exactly a step in that direction.Bibby is Jason Kidd with a jump shot, a supremely quick sophomore All-American who can shoot, pass, dribble and jump -- jump to the NBA as a lottery pick, that is, maybe as soon as next season.

INDIANAPOLIS -- A year ahead of schedule, noticeably undersized and conspicuously underhyped, Arizona's unflappable Wildcats are going where Lute Olson never dared go before.That was destiny calling when the Wildcats stung another NCAA heavyweight last night, beating North Carolina in a national semifinal at the RCA Dome, 66-58.The victory earned Olson his first appearance in the NCAA championship game after three previous Final Four failures. Arizona (24-9) will play Kentucky tomorrow night.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Mike Bibby had heard all the talk about how Stanford was going to do the same thing to Arizona on Thursday night it had done two weeks ago to UCLA.And Bibby heard all the chants from Stanford's rowdy student body from the stands at Maples Pavilion in pre-game warm-ups and for the first 25 minutes of the game.About being overrated.About hating his estranged father, Henry, the coach at USC."They were trying to get into our heads," Bibby said after the game. "They were trying to see what would happen, how far they could go. I thought, 'It'll come back to them.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The circumstances going into tonight's NCAA tournament championship game at the RCA Dome are similar to what they were a year ago.Kentucky is the favorite, having come through its regional as the top seed without a major scare. Arizona is the upstart, a fourth seed that seemingly has peaked at the right time.The most obvious similarity in this matchup of Wildcats is one that can help both Kentucky (35-4) and Arizona (24-9). Though not quite the overwhelming favorite it was against Syracuse at Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, N.J., last year, the defending national champion clearly is the one facing the pressure.
