*Gary Williams vs. John Calipari. It's reminiscent of 1994 when Calipari coached Massachusetts. Like this season, Maryland was a 10 seed. And like this season, Calipari's team was a two seed. The Terps beat the Minutemen 95-87 in the second round before losing to Michigan in the next round.

I'll talk to Maryland and Memphis players this afternoon and we'll preview Saturday's second-round game.

*Memphis did not play well against Cal State Northridge -- except for the surprising Roburt Sallie.

Sallie, who entered averaging 4.5 points per game, made 10 three-pointers and scored a career-high 35 points.

Sallie is a sophomore who hadn't scored more than 13 points in a game this season. He broke Larry Kenon's 36-year-old Memphis record of 34 points in an NCAA tournament game. "I don't think my teammates would ever expect me to break a record like that," Sallie said. "I'm just a shooter. I just was hitting shots today."

*Memphis, by the way, seemed bothered at times by Northridge's zone. "We

were a little bit tentative in the beginning. Coach kept telling us attack, attack, attack," said Memphis guard Antonio Anderson.

*Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman was asked last night who Oklahoma's sensational Blake Griffin reminded him of. His response? The late Len Bias.
