Glenn Robinson III scored 21 points, and Mitch McGary added 13 points and nine rebounds, helping fourth-seeded Michigan (27-7) overcome a rough night for Trey Burke in a 71-56 NCAA tournament victory over 13th-seeded South Dakota State (25-10) on Thursday night in Auburn Hills, Mich. Burke made only two field goals and left the game briefly in the second half after a hard fall under the basket. 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.

Michigan made Havoc look helpless. Now Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and the rest of the cool-headed Wolverines are part of the school's longest NCAA tournament run in nearly two decades. Mitch McGary had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and fourth-seeded Michigan breezed through Virginia Commonwealth's vaunted pressure with a clinical performance, beating the fifth-seeded Rams, 78-53, Saturday in Auburn Hills, Mich., to advance to the regional semifinals for the first time since 1994.

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.

SUDDENLY, THE 76ers are one of the hottest teams in the NBA. OK, they are 2-18, but their two wins have come in their last three games. The Sixers won at Detroit on Saturday night, 108-101, in overtime at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Both of the Sixers' victories have come on the road, the first coming at Minnesota on Wednesday that snapped a 17-game losing streak to start the season. While the Pistons rested on Friday, the Sixers were losing at home to Oklahoma City and Kevin Durant, 103-91.

Nerlens Noel was surrounded by a group of reporters Tuesday at the 76ers practice facility and one of the first things he heard was "How do you feel?" "I feel better now," he said. "I'm 100 percent, but I have to get my wind back. . . . But I'm getting up and down. Today was a good day. " The Sixers got their rookie power forward back. He'll be penciled in as the starter in Thursday's preseason finale against the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills. But just getting back on the practice court was a positive for defensive specialist, who had been sidelined since Oct. 15 with an upper respiratory infection.

THE SIXERS, once again, will be returning to their roots, according to their just-released preseason schedule. If part of the team's plan is to introduce rookies - and there might be as many as five first-year players on the opening-night roster - to the rigors of NBA travel, this schedule might do the trick. Over the 18 days on the docket, the Sixers will visit six cities - along with two home games at the Wells Fargo Center - and will travel as far west as Minneapolis. One of the stops will be Syracuse, where the franchise began as the Syracuse Nationals and won the 1955 NBA championship.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The 76ers were eager to erase memories of Friday night's nightmarish performance against the Atlanta Hawks. They thought Michael Carter-Williams would be able to help them, but he was out with a sore right shoulder. And the standout rookie point guard probably wouldn't have made much of a difference, anyway. A lack of towering interior players - not guard play - doomed the Sixers against the Detroit Pistons for the third time this season. This time, the Pistons prevailed, 113-96, Saturday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Michael Carter-Williams is back in the mix. The rookie point guard practiced Wednesday with the 76ers for the first time since he was sidelined Dec. 5 with a skin infection and soreness in the front of his right knee. Coach Brett Brown said the 6-foot-6, 185-pounder could play Friday night against the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center. "But we really don't know until we see how we get through today and tomorrow, [then] make a decision on game day," Brown said. Carter-Williams is likely to play, barring a setback.

DRIVING TO the basket in crunch time, Raymond Felton slipped and lost the basketball. All he could do was lunge back at it and bat it toward J.R. Smith as the shot clock ticked closer to zero. For the second straight possession, Smith beat the buzzer - this time with a three-pointer - and the visiting Knicks closed out a 125-120 victory Sunday over Oklahoma City. "He makes plays like that. He makes tough shots. Sometimes I think he likes to take the tougher shot than the easier shot.
