Do you know the old dollar-bill-on-a-rubber-band trick? Rick Barnes does. Or how about the switcheroo - sneaking a $20 bill into a dollar-bill change machine and leaving a cashier speechless after pulling the bill from the machine? Another Rick Barnes favorite. Then there's the one about the guy who took over as head coach of a demoralized college basketball team that had lost 13 of its last 16 games and had finished a dismal 11-17 just one year after going to the Final Four.

Bond informed Longhorns coach Rick Barnes of his decision to leave Texas in March and was granted his release. According to NCAA rules, the 6-foot-7, 225-pounder will have to sit out next season before having two seasons of eligibility with the Owls. He will, however, be allowed to practice with Temple next season.

George Mason coach Rick Barnes was named yesterday to succeed Gordie Chiesa as basketball coach at Providence. Barnes, 33, won 20 games in his only season at George Mason. Providence school officials did not release any contract details, but athletic director John Marinatto told the Richmond News-Leader that it was for four years. "I can't say how many games we'll win or lose, but we'll work as hard as possible to create a love affair with the community," Barnes said. He made his first visit to Providence two weeks ago, then returned for another visit last week.

University of Kentucky sophomore guard Rex Chapman's father said his son is trying to decide whether to enter the June 28 NBA draft. If Chapman decides to enter the draft, he must notify NBA commissioner David Stern no later than midnight tomorrow. Rex Chapman, who led the Wildcats in scoring with 19 points per game last season, indicated last month he would not make himself eligible for the draft this spring, but might consider it after his junior season. Wayne Chapman said he wasn't sure what sparked his son to consider turning pro immediately, but added that it wasn't because of the NCAA's investigation into Kentucky's basketball program.

RICK BARNES knew he would have a lot of teaching to do this season with a roster that has 10 sophomores and freshmen and still doesn't know when starting guard Myck Kobango will return to the lineup. The Longhorns struggled offensively in a 64-41 loss to No. 15 Georgetown on Tuesday night in the opening game of the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden. In the second game of the doubleheader, No. 25 North Carolina State beat Connecticut, 69-65. Otto Porter had 14 points and eight rebounds to lead Georgetown.

AUSTIN, Texas - Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes always thought Big East creator Dave Gavitt was one of those rare individuals who could see the writing on the wall before anyone else could even see the wall. "He is certainly one of the great people that I have had the opportunity to meet in my life," said Barnes, who coached at Providence from 1988 to 1994 and regarded Gavitt, who died in September, as such a strong mentor he never made a major decision in his career without checking with Gavitt.

After entering the season as the No. 2 team in the country, Texas was unable to get out of December with its ranking and pride intact due to consecutive blowout losses to Duke and Tennessee. The Blue Devils routed the Longhorns, 97-66, at the Meadowlands. And what probably was even tougher to accept was a 95-78 loss at home to the Volunteers a week later. Texas had to do without 6-foot-8 Brad Buckman (9.8 ppg., 7.0 rpg.) - a rugged forward who left the Duke game in the first half after aggravating a knee injury and did not play against Tennessee - but it did not ease the pain.

After a 56-year wait, the Texas Longhorns are returning to the Final Four. With an impressive all-around performance against a Michigan State team that seemed to be waiting for them to falter, the Longhorns came away with an 85-76 victory in the NCAA South Regional final yesterday at the Alamodome. A crowd of 30,169 - mostly clad in burnt orange - watched coach Rick Barnes' crew advance. Playing 75 miles from their home base in Austin, the Longhorns (26-6) took control in the first half and left no doubt in the second half about which was the superior team.
