The only remaining nonconference road game for the Blue Devils is Feb. 26 against St. John's at Madison Square Garden.

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.

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 building itself is utilitarian - brick and iron and, if not devoid of architectural splendor, certainly not revealing of any on first glance. Inside, trophy cases contain aging mementoes of an athletic era long past, lending an air of foreboding to the musty, dimly lit corridors. In fact, the 60-year-old structure resembles a museum or a Depression-era train station - until you walk up one of the chutes that lead to the stands. Then, gradually, the murmur that was audible even outside becomes a piercing chorus of screaming voices, and the grim passageways give way to a brightly lit wooden floor surrounded by darkened, pulsating stands.

DUKE COACH Mike Krzyzewski can't deal with it. North Carolina's Roy Williams has been bitten in the rear by it. Kansas' Bill Self is soon to loathe it. But Kentucky's John Calipari, well, he has no problem with the one-and-done syndrome that has become a staple of college basketball. While other top programs have struggled in dealing with recruiting top-flight prospects who only make a quick pit stop on campus before bolting to the NBA draft, Coach Cal has turned managing it into a Final Four art form.
