The newspaper said that Hill has been offered a buyout and was deciding whether to accept it. Hill's dismissal comes 3 weeks after athletic director Tim Pernetti gave the coach another year to turn around the program that had gone 47-77 in his 4 years.

INDIANAPOLIS - Beyond the very top players, recruiting is an inexact science. You are trying to project 15-, 16-, 17-year-olds to 21, 22, 23. Sometimes, you rate a few very closely and decide to take the player or players that say yes first. It was the spring of 2005 when the Saint Joseph's coaching staff found itself in such a quandary. They were going to have several scholarships available for the class that would be high school seniors in 2006. They liked a number of players for those spots.

Five good minutes from Stephen Curry was enough to get No. 23 Davidson a 68-65 victory over West Virginia last night in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York. The nation's leading scorer managed to make one of his first 13 three-point attempts before taking over the end of the game, scoring 13 of the Wildcats' last 15 points. He finished with 27 points, 4.3 below his average, on 9-for-27 shooting, including 4-for-16 from three-point range. Many shots came from behind the NBA three-point line, which is 2 feet, 3 inches deeper than college basketball's line.

Roy Williams had said there would be times when his North Carolina team looked ready to make a serious run at defending the national championship. And then there would be games like yesterday's, when the sixth-ranked Tar Heels commit "silly" turnovers, don't put opponents away, and lack intensity. Williams saw his team blow much of a 24-point second-half lead before garnering an 88-77 victory. And with his team preparing for a stretch that begins with a trip to New York to play No. 16 Ohio State on Thursday in the 2K Sports Classic, Williams let his team know it has to play much better.

INDIANAPOLIS - Duke was considered to be the weakest No. 1 seed in the NCAA basketball tournament, and the experts certainly thought this team would not advance too far. Well, the Blue Devils not only made it to their 16th Final Four, but they now get a chance at their fourth national championship after knocking off West Virginia, 78-57, in a national semifinal Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. Duke (32-6) advanced to a date Monday night with Butler (33-4), which edged Michigan State, 52-50, in the first game of the doubleheader.

For Scottie Reynolds, there's no tougher place to play in the Big East than at the WVU Coliseum, so it was safe to assume there was no tougher place for Villanova to rebound from its loss to Georgetown. The crowd of 15,593 - third largest in the 40-year history of the building - was ready. About 1,000 fans were outside the building two hours before game time, waiting for the doors to open. This was going to be a statement game for fifth-ranked West Virginia. But Reynolds and the No. 4 Wildcats went out last night in the unwelcoming environment and silenced the crowd.

There is nothing better for an athlete in basketball - or any sport, for that matter - than playing the next game, especially for one trying to flush away the sour feeling of a defeat. No. 2 Villanova, coming off a loss for only the second time this season, will welcome that situation tonight even though the opponent is West Virginia, which is ranked sixth in the nation and plays very well in front of its zealous - some would say overzealous - home fans. The Wildcats (20-2 overall, 9-1 Big East)

Dominique Jones ignited a comeback by scoring 22 of his 29 points in the second half, and South Florida extended its longest Big East winning streak, stunning No. 7 Georgetown, 72-64, last night in Washington. South Florida shot 65 percent after halftime to win its fourth straight conference game, including a 70-61 win over then-No. 17 Pittsburgh on Sunday that gave the Bulls three straight for the first time since joining the Big East in 2005. The Bulls (15-7, 5-5), who also have five Big East wins in a season for the first time, trailed by 13 points late in the first half and by 35-26 at halftime due to 60 percent shooting by Georgetown (16-5, 6-4)
