Big Eight rivals Oklahoma and Colorado will play for the third time this season tonight in the semifinals of the National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Oklahoma won the two regular-season games, by 113-97 in Norman and by 69-68 in Boulder. "You can throw out the first two games because we're both playing better now," Colorado Coach Joe Harrington says. "We know each other pretty well, so there shouldn't be any surprises."

The garish green-gold neon uniforms stayed behind when Joe Harrington left Cal State Long Beach for Colorado after the 1990 basketball season. So far, the shade Long Beach calls California Gold hasn't been mined as Colorado Gold in Boulder. Harrington left behind the technical fouls, too. The foot-stomping temper that once earned him four technicals in two games at Long Beach has been quieted.

Melvin Cheatum scored 19 of his 23 points in the final nine minutes Thursday night as Alabama handed No. 12 North Carolina its second consecutive loss, 101-93, Thursday night at Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Tar Heels (2-2), who lost to Missouri, 80-73, Sunday night in the championship game of the Maui tournament, led only briefly at the beginning of each half in their first meeting with Alabama since 1982.

Football fever has swept across the University of Colorado campus. The Orange Bowl is only 2 1/2 weeks away and locals can't wait until the No. 1-ranked Buffaloes play Notre Dame for a chance to win the national championship. Maybe that's why only 2,234 watched Colorado and UC Irvine play a nonconference basketball game Wednesday in the 11,199-seat Events Center. Then again, maybe the good folks of Boulder have seen Irvine play this season.

Don MacLean was down on all fours, out of bounds, behind the basket. Nine other guys followed the bouncing ball. Once, twice, three times UCLA's players tipped it, but it wouldn't fall. MacLean got up, got back into the game, snatched the ball near the rim with those long, Edward Scissorhands fingers of his and, while being fouled, eased it into the hoop. He enjoyed it.
