If Duke basketball is a religion, its sanctuary is a quirky campus arena located 350 miles south of Philadelphia, where the Blue Devils made yet another NCAA tournament appearance this weekend. Thanks to Duke's prolonged run of excellence, 73-year-old Cameron Indoor Stadium - quaint, intimate, home to a noisy and whimsical student section - has become the most ballyhooed symbol of history and charm in a sport that typically pays little attention to either. Classically Georgian in design, Cameron has girdered ceilings, a utilitarian pre-World War II elegance, and an acoustical magic that can transform several thousand voices into an earthquake.

Most college basketball coaches are in agreement that the regular season starts too early. Villanova began on Tuesday night - less than a month after opening preseason practice - and won a sloppy game over Fairfield, scoring 101 points despite 25 turnovers. "We're all the same boat," Wildcats coach Steve Lappas said after the game. "All the games are a little ragged. " Maybe, but someone forgot to tell Duke. The second-ranked Blue Devils opened their season Tuesday night with an 87-50 victory over Princeton.

Few reserves get serenaded with their name when they enter the game or make a key play. But the "Car-men Wall-ace" chant went over big last night in Cameron Indoor Stadium. "People identify with him because he's banged up, he's them, he's like the sixth man, too," coach Mike Krzyzewski said of Wallace after a 72-66, overtime win over Florida State. Duke became the fifth school in college basketball history with 1,500 wins, joining North Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas and St. John's.

Brian Zoubek, a sophomore center at Duke, says it's good to be back on the basketball court after a summer of rehabilitation. Zoubek, The Inquirer's South Jersey player of the year in 2006 while at Haddonfield, broke his left foot in a pickup game on July 9. After surgery, he had to undergo rehabilitation. Now he is looking forward to a new start. "I just got back into it and started playing, and it feels good," Zoubek said yesterday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. "I'm so happy to be able to play again.

If the preseason is any indication, freshman center Brian Zoubek - who led Haddonfield High to an NJSIAA state title in each of the last three seasons - is going to make a major impact on Duke's nationally ranked men's basketball team. Duke, No. 12 in the Associated Press' preseason ratings, will open its season tonight by playing host to Columbia in the first round of the College Basketball Experience Classic. Tip-off is at 8:30, and it is being televised on ESPNU. In two preseason games, in which Duke scored easy wins over Shaw and North Carolina Central, Zoubek was the Blue Devils' fifth-leading scorer (11.5 points per game)

Down by 12 points and in danger of falling to 0-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Maryland cranked up its defense in an effort to make something positive happen against No. 13 Florida State. "We didn't have anywhere else to turn," guard Sarunas Jasikevicius said. "We just had to change something. " The Terrapins proceeded to limit the visiting Seminoles to two field goals over a 12-minute span and rallied to an 81-74 victory last night.

When Randolph Childress got confused in the final seconds against No. 2 Duke, he turned to what he does best - shoot. His three-pointer with 11 seconds left gave visiting Wake Forest a 69-68 upset victory over the No. 2 Blue Devils, last night, denying Duke's chance to rise to the top of the polls. "I didn't know what (coach Dave Odom) wanted to do," Childress said. "He had me totally confused. I said he was going to kill me in the locker room if I miss this shot, but I said I was just going to go down and shoot the basketball regardless.

DUKE WON four national championships while being driven by what Hall-of-Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski says was energy, effort and hunger. Well, the seventh-ranked Blue Devils didn't necessarily have those things yesterday, and they couldn't beat visiting Miami. The Hurricanes stunned Duke, 78-74, in overtime, dropping the Blue Devils out of their three-way tie for first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Blue Devils couldn't handle Miami's 6-10, 284-pound Reggie Johnson, who scored five of his career-high 27 points in the overtime and added a season-high 12 rebounds.

Syracuse, which got the other No. 1 votes, and Ohio State each moved up one place, to second and third. Missouri, which had been No. 2, dropped to fourth after its loss to Oklahoma State. North Carolina, Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Michigan State and undefeated Murray State round out the top 10.

Temple matched up with a national heavyweight last night in No. 5 Duke and suffered a relatively quick knockout in a 87-52 defeat. The Owls (8-5) caused a small stir early with a 2-0 lead in Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. That was only because Duke (12-1) was in the process of missing its first eight shots. But then the Blue Devils went ahead on five straight foul shots. It became an 11-0 run when Duke finally found the basket with a trio of field goals and went on to dominate the rest of the way. "As soon as they were able to score, they put on the press," Temple coach Tonya Cardoza said of Duke's ability to move ahead.

Florida State's players celebrated their game-sealing defensive stop by cutting loose, whooping it up in front of those famously rowdy Cameron Crazies.
