After he arrived at Oral Roberts University in 1993, Bill Self worried more about survival than a revival.Before Nevada-Las Vegas and Loyola Marymount made outrageous point totals fashionable, there was Oral Roberts in 1972, setting an NCAA scoring record of 105.1 points. Oral Roberts could do more than run and gun -- it was an overtime away from the Final Four in 1974.A non-denominational Christian college in Tulsa founded by the evangelist broadcaster of the same name, Oral Roberts got back to the NCAAs in 1984, but then came hard times.

COLLEGE PARK - He has yanked his starting lineup early in a game, publicly challenged his team through the media and, at times, been at odds with one of his star players. But all it took to wake up the reeling Maryland men's basketball team was for coach Gary Williams to turn his full attention and anger on the referees. With his team trailing by 11 in the first half and looking hopelessly inept and uninterested in its first-round National Invitation Tournament game vs. Oral Roberts, Williams received his third technical foul of the season, and it ignited the Terps on their way to an 85-72 victory before a small but spirited crowd of 7,047 at Comcast Center.

Maryland will play eight games against preseason Top 25 teams, including four at home, starting with a 2 p.m. matchup Nov. 13 against No. 10 Georgetown.

Miami begins the year at No. 7, Duke at No. 8, Florida State at No. 14 and North Carolina at No.20.

NIT first round Oral Roberts (25-7) at Maryland (16-12) Site: Comcast Center, College Park Time: 9 Oral Roberts' top players: F Caleb Green, sophomore (19.3 ppg., 9.3 rpg.); G-F Larry Owens, junior (9.2 ppg., 7.5 rpg.); G Luke Spencer-Gardner, senior (9.5 ppg., 3.9 apg.); G Ken Tutt, sophomore (17.0 ppg., 2.4 apg.). Outlook: Will the Terps, who haven't been in the NIT since 1990, play like a team that wants to save some face or one that wants the season to end? Gary Williams' team has lost four straight.

South Africa close to return to OlympicsSouth Africa moved another step closer to regaining international acceptance in sports after more than three decades on the sidelines yesterday, when the International Olympic Committee's executive board conditionally recognized the country's interim, desegregated Olympic committee.Judge Keba Mbaye, an IOC vice president from Senegal, expressed optimism that South Africa will meet conditions required to receive full recognition as the IOC's 168th member by July, enabling it to send athletes to the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, and perhaps the 1992 Winter Games in Albertville, France.

GOING TO ATLANTA Georgetown. John Thompson III has the kind of team a father - his - could love, winning with a defense ranked fifth in points allowed (56.5) and a dominating frontcourt led by juniors Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert. Green could be one of the most underappreciated players in the country while the 7-2, 278-pound Hibbert leads the nation in field goal percentage (69.3). The X-factor for the Hoyas could be freshman DaJuan Summers (McDonogh), who scored in double figures 16 times.

COLLEGE PARK - Through two rounds of the National Invitation Tournament, this much remains clear about the Maryland Terrapins: They still haven't learned about the value of playing a full 40 minutes; their shot selection, at times, is still questionable; and their defense is still prone to lapses. But heading into today's NIT quarterfinal game against Texas Christian (21-13) at Comcast Center, the Terps have also found a resourcefulness that they lacked on many nights this season. Whether it's been their pressure or perimeter defense, their advantage inside or just their grit and hustle, the Terps have found ways to win - albeit against lesser competition than the Atlantic Coast Conference - while getting little to no offensive contributions from their top three players.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland Terrapins know the season has ended for most of their Atlantic Coast Conference brethren, who went down over the past week in the NCAA tournament or the National Invitation Tournament. That the Terps (17-12) are still playing is little consolation to coach Gary Williams or his players, who would much prefer preparing for an NCAA Sweet 16 game rather than tonight's NIT second-round game against Davidson (23-8) at Comcast Center. But Williams said the reality of the Terps' situation set in during the first half of Maryland's 85-72 victory over Oral Roberts in an NIT first-round game last Wednesday.
