BOSTON -- The time is now when scrubs become stars, nobodies become somebodies and no namers become A-listers. Now, apparently, is also the time for the power of Powe. Leon Powe, that is, and the Lakers will surely remember his name come Tuesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Never underestimate the heart of a Celtic We don't know who's best, but we know who's toughest, or here's something to remember if that day comes that the Lakers face the Celtics this spring: Boston 105, Cleveland 94. The Celtics did it without Kevin Garnett, and with Glen "Big Baby" Davis, booted early in the second half but still combining for 30 points with Leon Powe.

Ayinde Ubaka scored a career-high 29 points, and Leon Powe had 27 to lead California to its third straight victory to open Pacific 10 Conference play, 77-66, over Oregon on Thursday night at Berkeley. The Golden Bears (9-3, 3-0) got almost no offense from anyone other than Ubaka or Powe -- no one else scored more than seven points -- but didn't need it to hold off the Ducks (7-7, 1-1).

Good news rarely comes in the hours after midnight, and this was no exception. After the California Golden Bears defeated Oregon in double overtime late Friday at Staples Center, Leon Powe learned that the reward was not a Pacific 10 Conference tournament title game against UCLA in prime time. Instead, it would be at midafternoon. "I was thinking like later, so we could chill in bed," Powe said.

Leon Powe took control from the start, ending up with 30 points to help California move into a tie for first place in the Pacific 10 Conference with a 75-66 victory over Arizona Thursday night at Berkeley. The Golden Bears (16-6 overall, 10-3 Pac-10) won for the sixth consecutive time to join UCLA at the top of the conference with five games left in the regular season. Cal is looking for its first conference title since Pete Newell's final season as coach in 1959-60.

After good news about his surgically repaired left knee, California forward Leon Powe made himself eligible for the NBA draft Wednesday but does not plan to sign with an agent yet, giving him the option to return for his junior season. Powe announced the decision a day after he was examined in Colorado by Dr. Richard Steadman, who performed operations on Powe's knee two years ago. Powe has until June 18 to withdraw and go back to school. The 6-foot-8, 240-pound Powe averaged 20.5 and 10.

For many college basketball players, going more than 600 days between games because of reconstructive knee surgery would be the most difficult challenge of a young life. Not so for Leon Powe. The star forward for California was a toddler when his father left for good, an elementary school student when a younger brother playing with matches burned down the family home, a teenager when he was put into foster care and a high school junior when his mother died of a heart ailment at 41.

Leon Powe would lie awake for hours trying to will his eyes closed, his throbbing left knee anchored in a full-leg brace making sleep nearly impossible night after night. He questioned whether he would play basketball at the same level again, or if he should even try. He thought of his younger siblings and the hundreds of hard-off kids in his hometown of Oakland counting on him to give it a shot, and of his late mother and how she taught him never to quit.
