Batts, arrives in Baltimore. Batts is scheduled to begin work Thursday, and some city officials expressed concern that he will be left without the experience of some of the department's longest-serving leaders.

ATLANTA-- --It was the end of two roads last night at the Georgia Dome - the dynasty and the coulda-been dynasty. Florida was too good, too deep, too much for Ohio State. And yes, back-to-back national championships in this day and age of college basketball constitutes a dynasty. Give it up for the Gators, then, because it has been awhile, 15 years, since a repeat happened, and it will be awhile before it happens again. But give it up, too, for the best center of his time. Greg Oden, at 19, became a man last night.

SAN ANTONIO -- So, Ohio State can win without digging a double-digit hole and climbing out. And Greg Oden really is a game-changing difference maker. Consecutive lackluster performances by the Buckeyes and their 7-foot center in the NCAA tournament had raised questions about both, but they made believers out of the doubters yesterday in a 92-76 victory over Memphis in the South Regional final at the Alamodome. Ohio State grabbed control early and Oden carried the team late as the Buckeyes (34-3)

Atlanta -- In order for Ohio State freshman Greg Oden to prepare for his matchup against Georgetown junior Roy Hibbert - a classic yet rare battle between 7-foot centers on college basketball's grandest stage - the Buckeyes' assistant coaches had to somehow grow a few inches. Quickly. They improvised by extending their arms above their heads while clutching various dummy pads to imitate Hibbert's 7-foot-2 frame and crash into Oden. "I have to be able to be stronger and not let him get good position on the block, basically stuff I like to do," Oden said.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind.-- --Today, just thinking about the prom photos makes Jimmy Smith laugh. His son and Greg Oden, all dressed up in white tuxedos with those handsome black hats, making exaggerated faces for the camera. Even though Oden had moved away to Indianapolis before his eighth-grade year, he returned to town last May and attended senior prom at Terre Haute South High, where his best friend, Travis Smith, went to school. The two had been friends since the fourth grade and in their final weeks of high school, they had a plan: Oden would someday soon become a professional basketball player and Smith a pro golfer.
