Everybody around Philadelphia basketball has Gerald Henderson stories. Temple coach Fran Dunphy was asked yesterday if he had an early memory of Henderson. "At West Catholic," he said, "there was like a 20-foot pass along the baseline thrown to him. " Dunphy isn't known for tossing around superlatives, but here's more of his commentary: "There's no way humanly possible that anybody could have made the catch. Somehow, he did. He was running almost full speed toward the basket, and he stretched his arm out [past the baseline]

The committee that selects the teams for the NCAA tournament obviously has a sense of history, because they sent Kentucky and Duke, the combatants in the epic East Regional final 20 years ago at the Spectrum, to the same region again, the South. This time it's the Wildcats who are the No. 1 seed and the favorite to win the whole tournament. Kentucky has a player of the year candidate in Anthony Davis and players like Terrence Jones and Darius Miller who were on its Final Four team of a year ago. The No. 2-seeded Blue Devils played the nation's second-toughest schedule during the year and have one of the best freshmen in the nation in Austin Rivers.

When a small suburban district elected former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke to the Louisiana state legislature in February, political analysts and pollsters said that it was a fluke and that he would never be taken seriously. They apparently were wrong. In just over 60 days since he took office, Duke (R., Metairie) has emerged as a popular political leader here, using a recent statewide campaign against an unpopular tax-restructuring plan as his step to legitimacy, political analysts say. Two weeks ago, voters rejected a fiscal plan touted by Gov. Buddy Roemer, a Democrat, that would have increased some taxes to offset the state's $702 million deficit.

The national media is on a death watch, monitoring Duke's heartbeat, waiting for the two-time defending national champions to expire. "We've had our fun, but I wouldn't call it a fun season," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said last night. "You have fun when you accomplish things maybe someone said you couldn't accomplish, when you achieve something together. "Anything these guys have achieved together hasn't been recognized as an achievement. It's been recognized as status quo. Even now, as we enter the tournament, the main article being prepared for us is, 'When will Duke lose?

Temple and Duke are working on a two-year agreement to meet on the basketball court in a home-and-home series starting next season with a contest between the teams in Durham, N.C. "It's one of those things we're hoping for, and right now we have agreed to play home and home, but no contracts have been signed," Owls coach John Chaney said. "We have not finished the agreement. We have not decided where we might play here, and we have not agreed on the dates or the money. " "It's tentative right now," said Temple associated athletic director Joe Giunta, who is in charge of scheduling for the university.

You do not let Duke take a big early lead. Connecticut spotted the Blue Devils a 14-4 head start. You then do not complicate things by allowing Duke to outscore you, 14-1, and hold you without a field goal for five minutes, 55 seconds. Duke played out Connecticut's worst case scenario in the nightcap of the Midwest Regional semifinal at the less-than-full Pontiac Silverdome last night. At the end it was Duke 81, Connecticut 67. It grew ugly - Duke 38, UConn 20 - early and did not get better for the 11th-seeded Huskies.

This is no big deal, the monstrous dome, the hovering media, the raised stakes. Duke and Maryland are antagonistic league rivals, forced to coexist but yearning to beat the bejesus out of each other. So stage the game on a neutral playground, or in the other's gym. It does not matter. The Final Four? That could be cool - unnecessary, but cool. This is what it has come down to for the Blue Devils and Terrapins. Only one can advance tonight, to extend their season for one more glorious game.

Top-ranked Duke treated Roy Williams the same as the last two North Carolina coaches: The Blue Devils won again, in Chapel Hill, N.C. Chris Duhon's reverse layup with 6.5 seconds left in overtime last night gave Duke an 83-81 victory, the Blue Devils' 16th straight overall and fifth in the last six years on No. 17 North Carolina's home court. This one was over first-year coach Roy Williams, and the former assistant to Dean Smith left the court as did predecessors Bill Guthridge and Matt Doherty, losers at home to Duke.

Duke and Kansas, with 125 NCAA Tournament victories between them, were into the final minute. This NCAA Tournament had long since gone crazy. Could it get wilder, still? Could Kansas, leading by a bunch early and trailing by a bunch late, really be leading by a point? Could the third No. 1 seed go out in 24 hours? Could the Jayhawks, starting three freshmen after a season with several blowout losses, really beat Duke at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum, an hour from Duke's campus?

Some results are shocking. Others are merely surprising. Some are inevitable. Duke was inevitable. The Blue Devils always were going to win the East Regional final at the First Union Center on Saturday night. You think they came here to play Temple on Dec. 2 just because they like the city? That was the trial run. This was the real thing. Southern California was the designated victim. USC already had exceeded all expectations. Asking the Trojans to win again was asking too much.

NO REGRETS. That's the operative phrase from porn star Belle Knox, who became a media sensation after she was outed as a Duke University freshman who'd started that second job to help pay for her education. "I want people to know, doing sex work doesn't make me a bad person," the 18-year-old said in an interview with the Daily News . She'll be in Atlantic City this weekend for EXXXOTICA, an adult-industry confab at Trump Taj Mahal that's open to the public. "I don't want people to pity me or to think I did porn because it was my last resort or my last option," she said.

Pennsylvania Aging Secretary Brian Duke visited a retirement community Monday on Roosevelt Boulevard to talk up the governor's current and proposed budget, saying how committed the governor was to aging services. In the current budget, Duke said, the governor increased funding for aging services by $50 million - $20 million of that going to reduce waiting lists for home and community-based services through what is known as the Options program. This is funding, through the Department of Aging, using lottery money for home-delivered meals, adult day care, and other home and community services.

Rodney Hood scored 13 points and drew the game-changing charging call that helped No. 5 Duke beat top-ranked Syracuse, 66-60, Saturday night in Durham, N.C. Jabari Parker had 19 points and 10 boards for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 ACC). Jerami Grant scored 17 for the Orange (25-2, 12-2), who have lost two straight. Syracuse had the ball, down by 60-58, in the final seconds when C.J. Fair drove past Tyler Thornton along the baseline for an apparent tying layup. But official Tony Greene whistled Fair for charging - and when Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim shot onto the court to argue, Greene slapped him with two technical fouls and handed the Hall of Fame coach the first regular-season ejection of his career.

Ever since she stepped on the field as a freshman, Sarah Furey has made a major impact on the the Bishop Eustace field hockey team - both as a player and a leader. "Some people are leaders and they speak as leaders, and some lead by their actions," Eustace coach Danielle Senior said. "Sarah is the kind of leader who speaks with her actions. " Furey, one of the most dominant players in South Jersey, has led the Crusaders to two Group 2 state titles in the last three seasons, and just last year was named first-team all-South Jersey and third-team all-state.
