When the phone rang Saturday in his Maine apartment, the last thing Shelvin Mack expected to hear was that the 76ers were considering signing the 34th overall pick in the 2011 draft to a 10-day contract. "It was a surprise to hear from them, especially since I never worked out for them before the draft," said Mack, who signed the 10-day deal Thursday. "But it's great. I'd rather be here than in Maine. " Mack participated in Thursday's practice, and Sixers coach Doug Collins liked what he saw from the new point guard.

The 76ers got a confidence boost after Wednesday's much-needed victory over the Boston Celtics. Foul shooting, however, remains a glaring weakness. The Sixers made just 14 of 25 (56 percent) of their foul shots in their 95-94 victory at TD Garden. Their free-throw percentage of 71.1 for the season ranks 28th out of the league's 30 teams. "We've got to finish off those free throws and make it easy on us," said Evan Turner, whose squad snapped a three-game skid. "Coach [Brett]

NEW ORLEANS - Wisconsin's normally suffocating defense could not slow Matt Howard and Butler's run toward a second straight Final Four appearance. If anything, the Bulldogs may be gaining momentum. After narrowly surviving its first two NCAA Tournament games by margins of two points or less, Butler led by 20 points before holding on for a 61-54 victory over the Badgers last night. Howard had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Shelvin Mack scored 13 points and Shawn Vanzant 10 for the eighth-seeded Bulldogs (26-9)

A DAY AFTER his team had been thoroughly beaten by an Indiana Pacers group that was playing its third game in as many nights, 76ers coach Doug Collins didn't do a video-study session to point out mistakes in the 88-69 loss. In fact, he pretty much gave his team the day off, save for some light shooting and some weight lifting. Collins wanted to reflect, and remind his players of how lucky they are to have the job they do. "Last night, after the game we had to let Shelvin Mack go," Collins said Thursday.

Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nada l on clay for the first time in 10 tries, beating the top-ranked Spaniard, 7-5, 6-4, to win the Madrid Open on Sunday and extend his unbeaten start to the season to 32 matches. The second-ranked Djokovic squandered a 4-0 lead in the first set, but recovered to end Nadal's winning streak on clay at 37 matches and earn his third straight victory over Nadal in finals this season. The Serb's sixth title of 2011 allowed him to surpass Bjorn Borg 's 31-match season-opening run in 1980.

NEW ORLEANS - Matt Howard started squirming. After looking so composed while making the clutch plays Butler needed to pull off another NCAA tournament upset, Howard seemed uncomfortable talking about his leading role in the game. "I don't know if that's best for me to say," Howard said after his 20-point, 12-rebound performance lifted the Bulldogs to a 61-54 triumph over Wisconsin on Thursday night. "I really don't go back and evaluate that personally. I'm just really glad our team got the job done.

"This is a huge deal," said Zach Hahn, whose two three-pointers helped his team stay close in the first half.

HOUSTON - With every brick launched by Butler Monday night in cavernous Reliant Stadium, Connecticut built a lead and control of the NCAA final, finishing a comeback from its middling Big East regular-season status to national champion. The Huskies' defense completely shut out the Bulldogs' inside game, forcing their opponents to unsuccessfully launch from the perimeter. Their offense warmed up in the second half, propelling UConn to a 53-41 victory before a crowd of 70,376 and giving head coach Jim Calhoun his third national championship.

HOUSTON - The moment has been replayed repeatedly, the half-court shot launched last year by Butler's Gordon Hayward that seemed to trace in slow motion a perfect line to the basket. The ball hit the backboard and the rim before falling to the floor a fraction of an inch away from becoming the most remarkable play in NCAA championship game history. Instead, the missed shot meant another national championship for Duke. Butler was praised for its pluck and grit and its ability to stay with the No. 1-seeded Blue Devils for 40 minutes.

The Bulldogs spread the court perfectly, passed ahead and had the brilliant Matt Howard come from behind the defense to be the pressure release at halfcourt.

HOUSTON - Brad Stevens is Clark Kent. He is mild-mannered. He is intelligent. He clearly has superpowers. He just does not need to take off his suit to prove it. Stevens burst upon the NCAA scene in 2008 in the Birmingham, Ala., sub-regional. Butler dominated a first-round game and took a very talented Tennessee side to overtime in the second round before losing. That was the last game at Butler for the tough Philly point guard Mike Green and shooter A.J. Graves. It was the NCAA warning from Stevens.
