Their teams have been known as overachievers, their philosophies rooted in defense.When Gary Williams moved to Potomac a few years ago, he lived no more than five miles from Mike Jarvis, who was coaching at George Washington. They even had the same agent negotiate one of their contracts."I wouldn't call it a blood rivalry," said Rob Ades, the Washington attorney who has represented both Williams and Jarvis at different stages of their careers.

PHILADELPHIA - Mike Jarvis knows a little about what Rick Carlisle and the Indiana Pacers are going through these days with Ron Artest. Long before Artest first came to the NBA as a member of the Chicago Bulls, long before the talented but behaviorally challenged forward became a poster child for the league's plethora of players who seem to be out of touch with reality, Jarvis saw the makings of the public relations nightmare that unfolded this week....

NEW YORK - Wearing a throwback jersey with the name and number of his favorite team and its most prolific scorer, Chris Martyn is too young to remember when St. John's was one of college basketball's top programs and Chris Mullin was the crown prince of this city. Martyn is 19, meaning he had just been born when the Redmen, as they were called in those politically incorrect days, made the 1985 Final Four along with two other Big East teams.
