With the exception of Boston College's Al Skinner - who injured himself recently while playing pickup basketball - the basketball coaches of the Big East Conference gathered yesterday at Madison Square Garden for the annual media day. Included were the coaches of the last two national champions: Jim Boeheim of Syracuse, who led his team to the title in 2003, and Jim Calhoun of Connecticut, whose team won last season. There were also a pair of newcomers: John Thompson III of Georgetown, and Norm Roberts of St. John's.

Jim Boeheim kept saying that he never treated his team, as young as it was, as a young team. He never told his Syracuse Orangemen that they were young, never told them to say they were young. The player who seemed to be the oldest among them last night at the Louisiana Superdome happened to be the youngest. Carmelo Anthony, who won't turn 19 for another month, became just the second freshman to be named MVP of a Final Four. As this NCAA tournament wore on, Anthony kept adding subtleties to his game.

The general manager of Houston's Compaq Center said Bob Knight cursed him and offered to fight when he confronted the Texas Tech coach over remarks about the building's locker rooms. Jerry MacDonald said yesterday that he approached Knight after the coach criticized the size of its locker rooms following a game Friday night. "He said, 'If you want to settle this right now, let's step outside,' " MacDonald said yesterday. "I could not believe what I was hearing. I said, 'Step outside and settle the size of our locker rooms?

Notre Dame's Troy Murphy took control from the floor and from the free throw line. Murphy scored 22 of his 34 points in the second half and hit 16 of 19 free throws to lead host Notre Dame to a 74-60 victory over No. 11 Syracuse last night. In the second half Murphy sank six of 10 shots and was 10-for-13 from the free throw line. He finished with 16 rebounds. Murphy, who scored a career-low five points against Syracuse as a freshman and had an 0-5 record against the Orangemen, said the win was gratifying.

Iona's players knew they liked their matchup in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Not only had their coach once been an assistant at Syracuse, but the Orangemen have often used their first-round game to boost the fortunes of some upstart small-conference underdog. Until the last shot went up and came down, Iona was ready to take its place with Richmond ('91), Rhode Island ('88) and Navy ('86) as benefactors of Syracuse's familiar early round brainlock. But then that last shot went up and came down and it was Syracuse's players jumping around the court like conquering heroes after a 63-61 win yesterday in the South Regional, not like a team that just dodged a potentially embarrassing bullet from the less-than-mighty Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

On the day before his first NCAA title game, it was mentioned to Kentucky coach Rick Pitino how ironic it was that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, his former boss, would wind up intruding on the two most spine-tingling nights of his life. It is part of college basketball folklore now, how Boeheim chased down Pitino on his wedding day to offer him a job as an assistant coach. Both coaches seemed to enjoy the retelling yesterday. "I guess he called someone who knew me, got my number," Pitino said.

If Syracuse point guard Lazarus Sims has a chip on his shoulder, so be it. Here is one athlete who has earned the right to discuss that most overused of modern-day athletic terms - disrespect. In past years, his own coach didn't think Sims was good enough to run the Orangemen's offense. "For me to quit, it would just be showing that he got the best of me or that I wasn't able to play basketball," Sims said on the eve of tonight's NCAA title game between Syracuse and Kentucky at the Meadowlands.

It sounds like folklore: Orlando "Tubby" Smith, 44, the slim, angular head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, got his nickname not because of his appearance but because, when he was little, he didn't want to get out of the bathtub. No wonder. He was one of 17 children of Guffrie and Parthenia Smith - 12 girls, 5 boys, Tubby being the sixth oldest. There was one tub, an outdoor tub where vegetables were washed and pigs were gutted and cleaned. And where 17 children had their ears scrubbed and backs lathered in deep rural, southern Maryland, "way past rural," as Tubby Smith says.

Because of a postseason ban, Syracuse's 10-year run of NCAA Tournament appearances ended last season. But if the Orangemen were disappointed, they didn't play like it; they extended another enviable streak by going 20-9, the 11th consecutive season in which coach Jim Boeheim's team had won at least 20 games. Syracuse also advanced to the Big East Tournament championship game for the seventh time in eight seasons. "Our kids played through that last year, and it's to their credit," Boeheim said.
