Props To Duke, for hitting the road this week for games at Miami and Florida State. Of course, the Atlantic Coast Conference insists that Mike Krzyzewski take his team into actual opposing gymnasiums. The only remaining nonconference road game for the Blue Devils is Feb. 26 against St. John's at Madison Square Garden. Chops To anyone calling Villanova's 1985 NCAA title-game upset of Georgetown "the perfect game. " It was nearly the perfect shooting game, but the Wildcats had 17 turnovers in a game without a shot clock.

College basketball, above all else, is a coach's game. Players come and go, coaches remain. Coaches get most of the attention. They get the big money. They get the television shows. They get the sneaker contracts. They get the made-for-TV reputations. And many are getting out of control. "If you look at the sidelines, it seems like coaches are out of control, and 15 percent of the time, I think, they may be," said Lou Bonder, supervisor of officials for the Atlantic 10. "I've said for a long time that I think we should be restricted a whole lot more on the sidelines than we are," Arizona coach Lute Olson said.

BOBBY KNIGHT apparently doesn't realize that people actually listen to what he says. Yesterday, the former college basketball coach railed against the NBA in an appearance on ESPN radio's "Mike and Mike" show. And he used a poor choice of words when asked about Duke's Jabari Parker and Kansas' Andew Wiggins, freshmen who are headed to the NBA despite subpar performances in the NCAA Tournament. "If I were involved with the NBA I wouldn't want a 19-year-old or a 20-year-old kid, to bring into all the travel and all the problems that exist in the NBA," Knight said.

Yancy Gates scored a season-high 22 points as 24th-ranked Cincinnati extended the second-best start in school history, beating Xavier, 66-46, on Thursday night to regain the city's bragging rights. Cincinnati's 15-0 start matches the 1998-99 team for second-best in school history. The Musketeers (8-5) had won three in a row and eight of 11 in the series, which often gets overheated. Xavier's Terrell "Tu" Holloway got a technical for throwing an elbow. Philadelphia University 72, Bridgeport 70 - The host Rams (7-5)

1. Already? You're not going to believe this, but we are more than halfway through the 2011-12 college basketball season, with only eight weeks (and one day) remaining before Selection Sunday. Syracuse, which started the season ranked fifth, is the No. 1 team and stands - with Baylor and Murray State - as one of three major unbeatens. At the other end, Towson, Binghamton, and Chicago State have yet to win a game, going a combined 0-49. Surprise teams to this point have been Indiana, Georgetown, UNLV, Seton Hall, and Murray State; while Pittsburgh, Memphis, and Xavier have been the most disappointing measured against expectations.

The noise didn't stop at the locker room door. Two teams would be playing, two would be waiting underneath the stands, which often seemed to shake, the vibrations carrying right into the room. "You'd be peeking out, trying to see who was playing well," Fran Dunphy said this week. "Because you knew every player. " Wednesday night at the Palestra, four teams will play basketball and also offer a nod to the past. Temple will face La Salle, and then St. Joseph's takes on Penn, and Dunphy hopes the fans for the second game get there early and the fans for the first game stay to the end. Because there is nothing exactly like this anywhere else in college basketball.

Preseason Top 10 1. Maryland - The return of sharpshooter Melo Trimble and addition of 6-foot-11 freshman Diamond Stone will have the deep and talented Terrapins challenging for a national championship. 2. North Carolina - The Tar Heels will excel with mostly upperclassmen although star guard Marcus Paige, a senior, will miss the first 3-4 weeks with a broken bone in his hand. 3. Kentucky - The star-studded Wildcats have gone three years without a national championship, but the expectations remain the same with a nice mix of rookies and veterans.

Last season's local small college basketball season was as eventful as any in decades. Philadelphia University's Herb Magee hit the 1,000-victory mountaintop, making Magee the only NCAA men's coach in history not named Krzyzewski to reach it. And a rival player in the same league, Garret Kerr at the University of Sciences, was named NCAA Division II national player of the year after leading his team to an NCAA berth and a victory at Division I...

GALLOWAY TWP, N.J. - Nik Stauskas wants people to know that making three-pointers is one of his strengths, but not the only one. "I feel like a lot of people know I can do more than just shoot the basketball," the 76ers shooting guard said at the team's training camp. "People kind of figured that out in college [at Michigan]. Now it's just a matter of taking that next step of proving that in the NBA. "I'm confident I'll be able to do that. " The Sixers acquired Stauskas from the Sacramento Kings along with power forwards Carl Landry and Jason Thompson (who was later traded)

The Inquirer reported Tuesday that former coach Larry Brown has been lobbying the 76ers to hire Allen Iverson as an assistant general manager. There is one person who wholeheartedly supports that move: Iverson himself. "I may not know everything about physical talent or anything like that, but I have a sharp mind when it comes to that look, being able to look into somebody's eyes to tell if they are going to be in the foxhole with you tonight or if they are not," Iverson said Thursday night.

The sports draft, devised 79 years ago in Philadelphia because Bert Bell knew his Eagles couldn't otherwise compete, is a curious institution. Without one, wealthy teams such as the 1927-1964 New York Yankees can dominate. But with one, shrewdly run franchises such as the 1957-69 Boston Celtics can do the same. Though its worst-goes-first structure is meant to level the playing field, the system, as tank-ful 76ers fans understand, can still be manipulated. To preserve parity and integrity, leagues have tinkered constantly with their drafts.

INDIANAPOLIS - You know the world is spinning wildly out of control when Duke is on the undercard and Mark Emmert is on the right side of history. That is the backdrop to tonight's Final Four - college basketball's most successful program of the last 30 years relegated to warmup act for college basketball's most successful program ever, and the NCAA president a voice of reason in the debate around Indiana's capital on the now-revised "religious freedom" law that was devised by minds that needed opening.

B.J. Johnson, a former Lower Merion basketball standout who is transferring from Syracuse after two seasons, committed Monday to continue his career at La Salle. Johnson's father, Bobby, was a sharpshooting wing guard for ex-coach Speedy Morris and the Explorers from 1986 to 1990. "I couldn't be happier about B.J.'s decision," the Southern High School graduate said. "There's a legacy there which I think he'll eclipse. " A 6-foot-7, 190-pound sophomore forward, B.J. Johnson averaged 4.1 points and 3.1 rebounds in 25 games for Syracuse in the recently completed season.
