Syracuse fans have never been reluctant to point out fifth-year point guard Lazarus Sims' shortcomings. Since his redshirt freshman season, they have said he is too slow and can't shoot or play defense. They have said the Orangemen would never win with him in the lineup, and Sims rarely got a chance to prove them wrong. Until this season. After four years of waiting, Sims is making the most of his opportunity to direct the Orangemen. He averaged 7.

If anyone had any questions about Syracuse senior John Wallace's ability to come through in key situations, he answered them Friday night with one of the best individual performances of this NCAA tournament. Despite playing with four fouls over the final 17 minutes, Wallace first rallied the Orangemen from a 10-point, second-half deficit and then sent them into the West Regional final with a dramatic, leaning three-point basket with 2.

All Final Four team: Kentucky's Delk and Mercer, Syracuse's John Wallace and Todd Burgan, and Massachusetts' Marcus Camby. Syracuse sophomore Burgan played 39 minutes and finished with 19 points and eight rebounds against Kentucky to earn a spot on the all-Final Four team. With Kentucky determined to slow Syracuse point guard Lazarus Sims, Burgan was forced to handle the ball against the Wildcats' press.

Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim needs better play from his bench in order for the Orangemen to have any chance against a deep Kansas team. In Syracuse's last two victories, the Orangemen reserves have combined for only seven points and four rebounds. In Syracuse's 83-81 overtime victory over Georgia in the semifinal Friday, point guard Lazarus Sims played all 45 minutes, while Todd Burgan and Jason Cipolla each played 37.

How they got here: No question, Syracuse had the easiest path to the Meadowlands. The Orangemen have faced only one top-25 team in the tournament: jump shot-impaired Kansas in the West final. Mississippi State had the hardest, playing third-ranked Connecticut and No. 7 Cincinnati in successive Southeast Regional games. After collapses by Purdue and Memphis in the West, Syracuse played Georgia, seeded eighth in the regional, before upsetting Kansas.

The Final Four has a subdivision this year: the Tedious Two. Mississippi State and Syracuse, happy to be here but not particularly pleased with their undercard billing, play the game before "the Game" here today, and there's nothing anybody can do about it. Except wonder if, maybe, poll-rankings and pundit pronouncements aside, one of these defense-oriented teams can pull off the biggest title-game upset since Villanova knocked off Georgetown in 1985.

John Wallace gets all the accolades and Lazarus Sims is regarded as Syracuse's floor leader, but the Orangemen would not be playing in tonight's NCAA championship game without junior Otis Hill. In the tournament, Hill has been Syracuse's most consistent player, averaging 16 points and 6.2 rebounds in five games. In the Orangemen's 77-69 victory over Mississippi State in Saturday's semifinal, Hill scored 15 of Syracuse's first 27 points.

* How they got here: No. 8 Georgia and its all-senior lineup was too smart for Clemson's four freshmen in the opener and then shocked--or was it a shock?--No. 1 Purdue in the second round. Pundits overestimated Purdue's experience and undersold Georgia because of six losses in January. No. 4 Syracuse had the sweetest path to the round of 16, thanks to Drexel's first-round upset of No. 5 Memphis. The Orangemen easily disposed of No. 13 Montana State and then strangled No.

Another night in Cameron Indoor Stadium, one more victim for No. 9 Duke. Cherokee Parks scored 19 points to lead five players in double figures as the Blue Devils ran their non-conference homecourt winning streak to 93 games with a 99-56 victory over North Carolina A&T Monday night in Durham, N.C.

Jacque Vaughn, Kansas' assist specialist-turned scorer, had 17 points Monday night as the third-ranked Jayhawks turned back a Missouri challenge early in the second half and went on to score an 87-65 victory at Lawrence, Kan. Kansas, 24-2 overall and 12-1 in the Big Eight, saw its 53-35 lead trimmed in half when the Tigers scored nine unanswered points in the first four minutes of the second half. But Vaughn made a three-point shot and a free throw as the Jayhawks pulled away.
