DURHAM, N.C. - They were supposed to be tired, having finished with North Carolina State late Thursday night. They were supposed to be tested, what with fourth-ranked, once-beaten Wake Forest coming yesterday to play at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The No. 2 Duke Blue Devils didn't make any excuses. Instead they made a statement: Duke is still the team to beat in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Behind a shot-blocking defense, led by sophomore center Shelden Williams, and some terrific shooting by guards J.J. Redick and Daniel Ewing, the Blue Devils easily dispatched of the Demon Deacons, 84-72.

Thirty-two years after setting Maryland's record for points in a men's basketball game, Ernest Graham has a wish. "I would love to live long enough to see them retire my jersey," said Graham, a Dunbar graduate who played for the Terps from 1978-81 and whose single-game mark of 44 points, set against North Carolina State in 1978, still stands. But Graham's number — nor that of any other Terp — isn't likely to be retired anytime soon. That's because Maryland has a policy of not retiring basketball numbers.

COLLEGE PARK -- Everybody knows the record by now. Going into this season, Maryland had beaten Duke five times in their previous eight meetings, the past three in a row, and three times in four years at Comcast Center. It's not as if Duke has never come in near the top of the polls, or as if the Terps haven't had a rabid, obscene, occasionally unlawful crowd behind them. Most of all, it's not as if the Terps have brought anything less than their `A' game, mind, body and soul, during their four years of toppling the rulers from their throne.

DURHAM, N.C . -- Maryland coach Gary Williams barked at the officials, junior guard D.J. Strawberry scowled and senior guard Chris McCray shook his head, seemingly both in disbelief and frustration. None of it helped. No. 23 Maryland's offense unraveled like a roll of toilet paper last night, as the Terps turned the ball over to No. 1 Duke 29 times en route to a 76-52 beating before a packed crowd of 9,314 that rocked a stuffy and deafening Cameron Indoor Stadium. The one thing the Terps had last season, despitemissing the NCAA tournament for the first time in 12 seasons, was two victories against Duke, including one here when the Blue Devils were ranked No. 2. Point guard John Gilchrist, who left school early to pursue his professional career, was gone last night, but essentially the same team took the court.

If North Carolina juniors Sean May and Raymond Felton and freshman Marvin Williams announce today that they're entering the NBA draft, the Atlantic Coast Conference is expected to be without nine of its best underclassmen from last season. How that will affect the balance of power in the league depends on the point of view of coaches who have grown accustomed to early departures. In Chapel Hill, the university has confirmed that coach Roy Williams will join the three players at a news conference today.

COLLEGE PARK - It was a win so intense, so emotional that it sent the sold-out Comcast Center crowd into delirium and reduced John Gil- christ to tears. In a season that has had its share of ups and downs, the Maryland Terrapins established a new high last night. The Terps came back from a nine-point second-half deficit and then won the game from the free-throw line in overtime, prevailing 99-92 in a thrilling victory over seventh-ranked Duke. The fans stormed the court after the game, mobbing the Terps, who won their third straight over the Blue Devils and became the first Atlantic Coast Conference team since the 1995-96 season to sweep Duke in a regular-season series.

SAN ANTONIO - Oklahoma State junior point guard John Lucas had made so many clutch plays for the Cowboys throughout this magical season, and the son of the legendary Maryland Terrapins point guard was at it again last night. But after overcoming a mostly ineffective evening by making three huge second-half shots, including the three-pointer that tied the score at 65 with 26.3 seconds left, Lucas lamented his failure at the defensive end of the floor as time was running out in regulation.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Duke's defense shut down tenacious Delaware State in the second half and enabled the Blue Devils to survive a mild scare in the NCAA tournament's Austin Regional last night for a 57-46 victory at Charlotte Coliseum. Overcoming foul trouble, an off night for J.J. Redick and the pesky Hornets, top-seeded Duke (26-5) advanced to tomorrow's second round against Mississippi State. Redick scored a season-low seven points, hitting one of seven shots. In his absence, the offensive load fell on Shelden Williams (14 points, 11 rebounds, four blocked shots)

COLLEGE PARK - A year ago, Will Bowers felt like he didn't belong. In the Atlantic Coast Conference. With his Maryland teammates. At times, on the basketball court at all. And if there was ever a moment for that feeling to resurface, it was Wednesday night. For the first time since he has been at Maryland, the 7-foot-1, 248-pound sophomore center was in the starting lineup. The Terps were playing second-ranked and undefeated Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium, one of the most intimidating venues in sports.
