When Santa Clara's Steve Nash is one of the first point guards taken in the NBA draft next June, it will give him one more chance to tweak the major conference schools that wouldn't risk a scholarship on him.Four years ago, the powers that be weren't interested in Nash, even though he had shown his athleticism in a variety of sports, was 6 feet 3 and had excellent range on his jumper. Nash grew up a two-hour drive from the site of last season's Final Four, but across the Canadian border, in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Just real lucky.That is how Santa Clara's Dick Davey feels about starting as head coach of the Broncos in 1992 with freshman Steve Nash as his designated floor leader.With Davey designing the plays and Nash executing the offense, Santa Clara has a 72-41 record the past four years and qualified three times for the NCAA tournament. Tomorrow in Tempe, Ariz., the Broncos (19-8) face Maryland in the opening round of the West Region."It was just real fortunate for us that he fell through the cracks," Davey said of the lanky 6-foot-3 Nash, now considered by pro scouts to be the best pure point guard in the country and a possible low lottery pick.

Last season, Santa Clara launched its Cable Car Classic with a thrilling one-point victory over UMBC when Kyle Bailey did not see a signal for a timeout and instead banked in the winning shot with 1.1 seconds left. Last night, the Broncos found another way to hand the Retrievers a heartbreaking loss when center Jim Howell blocked Kareem Washington's game-winning attempt at the buzzer to secure a 55-54 decision before 2,213 at RAC Arena. In its first game in Maryland, Santa Clara escaped while playing without the injured Bailey, an all-West Coast Conference guard and the team's leading scorer.

SANTA CLARA - Boil out the flimsiest, fuzziest story lines and this Super Bowl is supremely easy to summarize in less than 25 words. The 49ers are a little better at the best things the Ravens do and a lot better at the things the Ravens do worst. There you have it. Simple, crisp, lean, complete ... and almost nothing like any of the food I plan to consume in the French Quarter next week. OK, a little more: The 49ers have the more dynamic quarterback, the more varied offense and the stronger, younger defense, which are all the tangible pieces that mark a team as an eventual Super Bowl champion.

SANTA CLARA - Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio credited "great quarterbacks, great receivers" for opponents' ability to rack up yards against the 49ers in the playoffs. If Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens' receivers can do the same against the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, they'll surely be considered great, too. Fangio has been a fan of Flacco since serving as a Ravens assistant during Flacco's first two seasons. "I remember his first (offseason training) sessions as a rookie, I said to (coach)

COLLEGE PARK - It took only 1:32 for Maryland's men's soccer team to make Sunday's offensive goose egg as distant as the field where it was laid. Senior forward Jason Garey converted on that chance early, and the No. 14-ranked Terps tacked on two more first-half goals to run away from No. 4 Santa Clara, 3-1, in front of 2,827 at Ludwig Field. At the start of the week, the Terps fell at UCLA, then ranked No. 9, and didn't register a shot on net. But in yesterday's home opener, the Terps got some redemption against another highly ranked California team.

It was one of the most memorable recruiting trips Dick Davey has experienced at Santa Clara. In March 2001, he already had a letter of intent from Kyle Bailey but went on the road to get a firsthand update on the progress of the guard prospect. "I was in a restaurant, having breakfast the morning of his game," Davey said. "I look outside and see a moose. That was an interesting experience." The dean of West Coast Conference coaches, Davey is in his 13th season as head coach and 28th overall at Santa Clara, an hour south of San Francisco.
