Maybe Illinois prep star Jon Scheyer can become fast friends with his soon-too-be Duke teammate, Episocopal Academy's Gerald Henderson. That way, he might get invited to Philadelphia and get his chance to visit hallowed ground - the Wachovia Spectrum. It was there, in 1992, that Christian Laettner's turnaround jumper sealed the Blue Devils' victory over Kentucky in the East Regional final - and sealed Scheyer's dream to attend Duke. "I brought my parents downstairs to the basement right after that shot," Scheyer, a 6-6-inch junior from Glenbrook North, who was 5 at the time, told the Chicago Tribune.

The second time proved to be the charm for Bob Knight. The all-time winningest coach in the history of men's Division I basketball achieved his 900th career win when host Texas Tech upset ninth-ranked Texas A&M, 68-53. Knight, 67, became the third coach to reach the 900-win plateau, along with Tennessee women's coach Pat Summitt (959) and former Texas women's coach Judy Conradt (900). Fans chanted Knight's name as he walked off the court to a thunderous ovation. "You folks being here, seats being full for a change, really made a difference tonight," Knight told the crowd.

Kyle Singler hit two free throws with 19.4 seconds left to help No. 8 Duke rally past Rhode Island 82-79 yesterday. Jon Scheyer scored 23 points, and Singler finished with 21 points for the Blue Devils (3-0), who fell behind by 12 early and trailed the visitors for most of the way. Singler twice hit a pair of foul shots in the final minute to put Duke up by one, before Rhode Island called timeout with 10.6 seconds left and worked the ball to Jimmy Baron. With Singler in his face, his fallaway jumper glanced off the rim, clipped a Rams player and went out of bounds with 4.9 seconds on the clock.

When Duke players bounded on to the court and joyfully formed their fingers and arms into V's late last night, the celebratory gesture referred to their just-completed second-round NCAA tournament win over Texas and not the identity of their next opponent. But now that the No. 2-seeded Blue Devils are back in the Sweet 16 following a rare two-year absence, they will turn their thoughts quickly to Villanova and their East Region matchup next weekend in Boston. And if, as its fight song suggests, V really is for vic-to-ry, Villanova will have to do what the frustrated Longhorns seldom could in their 74-69 loss at the Greensboro Coliseum - cope with the Blue Devils' withering defense.

Gerald Henderson scored a career-high 35 points as No. 9 Duke held on to beat No. 8 Wake Forest, 101-91, last night in Durham, N.C. Jon Scheyer added a career high with 30 points for the Blue Devils (22-5, 8-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). They twice led by 22 points in the first half and let the Demon Deacons (20-5, 7-5) creep within two points before finally putting them away with a 16-6 run that was keyed by Henderson. Henderson, an Episcopal Academy graduate, was 11-of-15 shooting - and hit 10 of his 11 attempts inside the three-point arc - while slicing his way through the Demon Deacons' defense for dunks and layups.

Gerald Henderson grew up not knowing if he wanted to be Tiger Woods or Grant Hill. Yesterday the Episcopal Academy junior made it official when he formally announced at a news conference that he has accepted a basketball scholarship from Duke. Henderson can't sign a letter of intent until the early signing period in November. But his oral commitment to the Blue Devils ends weeks of speculation in which the 6-foot-5 small forward had narrowed his choices down to Duke and Villanova.

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.

Even without coach Jim Calhoun at the helm, Connecticut gave Syracuse a scare to the end. Wes Johnson and Kris Joseph combined to make six straight free throws in the final 33 seconds, and No. 2 Syracuse held off the game Huskies, 72-67, last night after squandering a 16-point lead in the second half. It was the first meeting between the teams since Syracuse's epic 127-117, six-overtime win in the Big East Tournament last March. Overtime became a possibility again when Jerome Dyson's three-pointer tied the score at 65 with 2:33 left, but Johnson put the host Orange back in front by hitting two foul shots with 30.4 seconds to go. "We dealt with six overtimes.

Sherron Collins had career-high 33 points and made nearly every key play down the stretch, helping No. 1 Kansas pull out a gutty 71-66 win over visiting Cornell last night. Kansas (14-0) overcame a rare off night from the field - 36 percent - and shoddy defense in the first half, making just enough plays down the stretch in one of the toughest victories during its 51-game home winning streak. "Tonight was like a tournament game," Collins said. "When things aren't going good, you just have to find a way to win and I was that way to win. " Cornell (12-3)

Everything that left Jon Scheyer's hand went where it was supposed to go: straight to his teammates and, especially, through the rim. Scheyer had career highs of 36 points and nine assists last night to lead No. 7 Duke past Gardner-Webb, 113-68. He was 11-for-13 from the floor, had 24 points by halftime and finished with a personal-best seven three-pointers to lead the Blue Devils (8-1). And as his stat line inched closer to a triple-double, his teammates joked that he earned a taste of the silent treatment.
