CINCINNATI -- New game. Same old result. The BayRunners lost their 12th straight last night, 119-95, to the Cincinnati Stuff at Firstar Center. Cincinnati's magic number for clinching the International Basketball League's East title is now at five, and the Stuff claimed its seventh win over Baltimore in eight games. And the BayRunners? More misery -- winless in March, a 13-35 overall overall and a 2-20 mark on the road. Still, coach Terry Truax doesn't think his players have given up. "It looks like there's no incentive," he said.

INDIANAPOLIS -- One February night two years ago, the Wayne Turner Show had yet another performance at the Beaver Country Day School.Located just off Route 9 in Newton, Mass., Beaver had become a mecca for college basketball coaches hoping Turner would listen to their sales pitch and follow them to their schools. The opposition this night was the Winchendon School, a Massachusetts power that featured Victor Page (who would eventually go to Georgetown) and Randell Jackson (Florida State). In the jam-packed stands were Providence's Pete Gillen, Boston College's Jim O'Brien and several assistant coaches from major college programs.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- For the past six months, they lived in Rick Pitino's "precious present," this group of marvelously talented athletes in Kentucky blue.Against all odds, these interchangeable Wildcats grew to become one big cohesive family this season.That accomplished, they then grew to become national champions.The formal coronation took place Monday night in the Meadowlands, but the procession started some time ago, when Pitino first mapped out his route to the top.This was a team built to the coach's specifications, choreographed to his vision.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- He had been there before, after other big games, after other tough defeats. But yesterday's 86-84 loss to Kentucky in the NCAA South Regional final was different for Duke point guard Steve Wojciechowski.It would be the last time the senior from Severna Park put on -- and took off -- his Duke uniform."I'm feeling pretty empty," Wojciechowski said an hour or so after the game, sitting by his stall in the Blue Devils' dressing room at Tropicana Field. "The only regret I have is that I won't be able to go out with these guys on the court anymore.

ST. LOUIS -- In the end, after the ragged start, the angry speech and the remarkable turnaround, Antonio Smith wound up with the ball in his hands and the Midwest Region at his feet.Michigan State's 6-foot-8 senior followed the first impulse that hit him. He kicked the ball as hard as he could. "Almost to the ceiling," he said, in half astonishment. "I just let it hang out."Why not? The Spartans, everybody's underdog, had just beaten the odds one more time. They spotted the Kentucky Wildcats 13 points in yesterday's Midwest Regional final, then eliminated the defending NCAA champions with the blunt, efficient end of their ever-present defense.

IT'S ELECTION time in Annapolis, and funny things are happening. Funny things have always happened in Annapolis.This may surprise you, if you've always thought of the state capital in terms of the State House, the Naval Academy and ladies in colonial costumes. But Annapolis is a small town, with real issues like traffic, racial tensions and how to manage growth. It's quirky, bustling, gossipy. ''I don't think anybody in Annapolis is ho-hum about anything,'' says Linnell Bowen, executive director of Annapolis' Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.
