The star point guard came back after that, but he finished with only six points in the South Regional game.

BY THIS TIME next week we'll know which Philly teams have made the NCAA Tournament. Until then, we defer to the expertise of ESPN.com's Joe Lunardi and CBSSports.com's Jerry Palm, the nation's foremost (only?) bracketologists. Both still have Villanova, Temple and La Salle in the Madness. All three finished the regular season against nationally ranked teams. Villanova helped its cause with a huge, 67-57 win over No. 5 Georgetown last week. The Wildcats begin the Big East Tournament on Wednesday with a game against St. John's at Madison Square Garden.

No brawls or bomb scares. Just basketball. Richard Hamilton scored 28 points and Ben Wallace had 21 points, 15 rebounds and four steals to lead Detroit to a 96-81 victory over visiting Indiana last night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series. The Pacers' two previous road games against the Pistons were marred by the infamous melee - which started on the court, spilled into the stands and went back onto the court - and a phone threat of a bomb in Indiana's locker room, delaying the second game at the Palace in Auburn Hills, Mich.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - As expected, Joel Anthony said the phone call he received Monday from Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy was "a little awkward, a little weird. " At the time, Anthony thought he was heading to the 76ers as part of a three-team trade with the Pistons and Houston Rockets. But Van Gundy called to inform him the trade was rescinded after Donatas Motiejunas, who was going to Detroit from Houston, failed to pass a physical because of a bad back. So Anthony was back here Wednesday night facing the team he expected to be traded to at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Hollis Thompson made his first career start for the 76ers on Sunday. The rookie started in place of James Anderson at shooting guard in the game against the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills. He finished with six points and six rebounds. Coach Brett Brown informed Thompson of the news an hour before the game. Anderson had struggled lately, making just 2 of 19 three-pointers in the three games before Sunday's. Brown said he inserted Thompson for defensive purposes.

Some players say they don't care about statistics, but there may be no better example of this selfless attitude than Detroit Pistons center Rasheed Wallace. The former Simon Gratz High School star is getting ready to face the 76ers in a best-of-seven playoff series that will begin tomorrow in Auburn Hills, Mich. And he professes to care about nothing more than winning. That is a line uttered by so many athletes, but for Wallace, there's nothing phony about it. The four-time all-star is listed at 6-foot-11, but he looks and plays bigger, and is among the league's most versatile players.

A warrant was issued yesterday for the arrest of a man who allegedly threw a quarter at 76ers guard Allen Iverson late in Tuesday's 99-84 loss to the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Iverson was hit in the back with a coin that was thrown from the stands. Dennis W. Pauley, 31, a resident of Taylor, Mich., is being charged with two misdemeanors. The first count is occupying a seat or area without permission/proper ticket (he allegedly didn't have a ticket for the seat he was in)

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - This game unraveled like a yo-yo, and no matter how frantically the 76ers pulled back, it wouldn't return to them. First, it was one missed free throw, then another, then a spinning three-pointer by the Detroit Pistons, and finally eight unanswered points to start overtime. The 76ers are no strangers to these types of soul-sucking losses, but Saturday's 112-109 overtime defeat to the Pistons seemed especially painful. How exactly did it go down? Of the 20,038 inside the Palace of Auburn Hills, only a few thousand remained in their seats.
