Three games in four days? It's the sort of compressed schedule that some teams play in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in March. But this isn't March, and it sure isn't Greensboro, N.C., site of last year's ACC tourney. It's San Juan, scene of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. As Maryland worked out Wednesday at the ultra-modern Coliseo De Puerto Rico, it was a humid 80 degrees and the team had checked in the day before at a downtown beachfront hotel. Surrounded by palm trees and inviting diversions, the Terps face their first major test under new coach Mark Turgeon.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Wichita State ended an 18-year absence from the NCAA tournament in style, as the Shockers outclassed Seton Hall, 86-66, yesterday at the Greensboro Coliseum. Seventh-seeded Wichita State never trailed, went ahead for good in the third minute, doubled the score late in the first half and never allowed the Pirates to get closer than 11 in the second. The Shockers got 23 points from sophomore guard Sean Ogirri and 15 points and seven rebounds from senior center Paul Miller.

Shockers' blend is winning recipe Wichita State had just posted its biggest basketball victory in 25 years, one that advanced the Shockers into the Sweet 16 in the Washington Regional, and sophomore guard Matt Braeuer was asked if he had ever visited the nation's capital. "I've never been there," Braeuer said, "but I'm sure it's gonna be a lot of fun." Braeuer is a 5-foot-11, 157-pound, 19-year-old cherub. His giddiness was a rare moment of innocence in an era when rising high school juniors absolutely must do Vegas on the AAU circuit.

WASHINGTON -- As the game clock expired last night, George Mason senior guard Lamar Butler hugged the basketball and pumped his right fist in the air, a huge grin spread across his face. He made eye contact with his father in the stands and said he recalled "everyone saying we weren't even supposed to be here." Turns out they're staying a little longer. Last night, just 20 miles away from its campus in Fairfax, Va., George Mason (26-7) continued its improbable run through this year's NCAA tournament with a 63-55 win over Wichita State (26-9)

WASHINGTON -- Other than being the tallest one on the block, Rudy Gay was a typical kid in eastern Baltimore County. He watched Sesame Street like everyone else, so the Connecticut sophomore forward was asked if one of the show's teaching tools describes the NCAA tournament's Washington Regional. Which of these doesn't belong with the others? Eleventh-seeded George Mason is one week removed from its first-ever NCAA tournament victory. Seventh-seeded Wichita State, its opponent in tonight's first regional semifinal, is making its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1981.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - It's neither the championship game nor the game featuring the highest-ranked teams. But the significance of tonight's third-place game in the Old Spice Classic goes beyond that. At 5:30 p.m. today, for the first time during the regular season in 15 years, Maryland and No. 21 Georgetown will play a men's basketball game with nothing on the line but pride. "It's ironic that we're playing them here," Maryland coach Gary Williams said. " ... It should be a good game.

Brian Hodges and Jay Greene combined for 45 points but a late rally fell short as the UMBC men's basketball team lost to host Wichita State, 77-68, last night. Freshman J.T. Durley scored a career-high 17 points to pace the Shockers (5-2). Hodges (25 points) hit a three-pointer to tie the game at 21 with 8:50 to go in the first half. That was the closest the Retrievers (6-2) got. Wichita State built a 43-28 lead at the half on 50 percent shooting from the field. The Shockers led by as many as 18 points in the second half.

Greg Sprink and Corey Johnson each scored 13 points to power Navy past visiting Delaware Valley, 65-40, yesterday. The Mids (8-3), playing their first game in 10 days, struggled early against the Division III Aggies (3-7), who rallied to tie the game at 33 early in the second half. Navy recovered with a 24-3 run to take a 57-36 lead with just less than five minutes to play. The Aggies went 8 1/2 minutes without scoring, missing seven shots in a row and turning the ball over nine times before ending the drought with 3:46 remaining.

Washington -- With each NCAA tournament victory this month, the 11th-seeded George Mason men's basketball team made school history, but this afternoon, the Patriots will face their toughest opponent of the season for a trip to the Final Four, and the program's most significant achievement to date. The implications of an upset over top-seeded Connecticut (30-3) at 2:40 p.m. today at Verizon Center extend beyond George Mason's Fairfax, Va., campus, though, as mid-major debates dominated discussions about this year's bracket selection.

Washington-- --Final score: Verizon Center 63, Wichita State 55. Insane as it would have sounded two weeks ago, George Mason won its Sweet 16 game last night the moment its name popped up in the Washington Regional back on selection Sunday. Yet there was nothing crazy about it once yesterday dawned and the city began to revel in the realization that the team that so many said shouldn't even have been invited was playing a home game for a berth in the Elite Eight. At halftime, George Mason led 35-19, and that's why the 11th-seeded Patriots won, why they're playing again tomorrow, trying to beat Connecticut and prolong the biggest Cinderella story the NCAA tournament has ever seen.
