Sebastian Telfair's smile is usually hard to miss. Having just turned 18 last month, Telfair still likes to joke around with other players off the court. That, however, has been a lot harder recently.
When Telfair was in Colorado with Rice guard Russell Robinson to work out with USA Basketball last month, he was quoted as saying this: "Russell and I are both going to St. John's."
Telfair learns to stay guarded
The next big thing is a 6-7 forward from Los Angeles. He only recently made basketball his No. 1 sport, but that doesn't matter. He hasn't done much this week at the Adidas ABCD Camp, but that doesn't matter, either.
No, Dorell Wright is the next big thing for one reason: The buzz says he is.
What is the buzz? It is a mysterious phenomena that can take an anonymous high school player and -- virtually overnight -- turn him into a sought-after commodity on the summer basketball circuit.
Talented prep players land in unique spot
St. Anthony, which won the And One summer high school national basketball championship two weeks ago, is being pegged as the early favorite to win the 2004 NJSIAA Tournament of Champions.
But you won't find any of St. Anthony's players at the Adidas ABCD Camp at Fairleigh Dickinson in Hackensack, and one coach thinks that's a little strange.
"If I wanted to be sarcastic, and sometimes I do, I'd say that we must have won a national championship and about 25 games (in AAU play) without the help of any outstanding individuals," St. Anthony coach Bob Hurley said by phone yesterday. "This must just be a real good team without any stars to speak of. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
ABCD Camp holds no charm for Hurley
Around Big East
Connecticut will become a full-time football member of the Big East Conference next year, and the league won't add any schools before the 2005-06 season.
The decisions were made after meetings of presidents and athletics directors of Big East football-playing schools.
"We formally moved up the timeline for integrating Connecticut into our schedules as one of the league's full-time playing members for the 2004 season," Big East Commissioner Mike Tranghese said.
Big East moves up UConn plan
The Charlotte 49ers and other Conference USA teams should get a better idea of their role, if any, in a realigned Big East late this month, but would not implement any changes until the 2005-06 school year.
That timetable emerged Wednesday after two days of C-USA conference calls that included athletics directors and university presidents and chancellors.

Presidents and athletics directors of Big East football schools concluded three days of meetings that laid the groundwork for conference restructuring yesterday.
Several new developments, according to Rutgers University Athletics Director Bob Mulcahy, came out of the meeting, which was held at the Newark Airport Marriot.
Connecticut, initially slated to replace Temple in 2005, will become a Big East football-playing member a year earlier.
The conference will not add any new teams until the 2005-06 season.
Big East lays groundwork for future restructuring
UConn basketball coach Jim Calhoun said it is time for the Big East to "start fresh" and form a league comprised only of schools that participate in basketball and football.
Because football is "driving the financial wagon," Calhoun thinks it's necessary for the schools in the conference that play both sports to break away from the ones that don't, which include St. John's, Seton Hall, Georgetown, Providence and Villanova.
Calhoun seeks Big changes
The Big East will not invite new schools to join the conference until the 2005-06 season, meaning the league will have just seven members when Miami and Virginia Tech leave after next season.
League officials reached that decision, but few others, during three days of meetings that concluded yesterday at the Newark Airport Marriott. As expected, they cleared the way for Connecticut to join as a football-playing member one year ahead of schedule, in 2004.

Around the nation
Army announced yesterday that its football team will no longer compete in Conference USA after the 2004 season. School officials took great pains to say that the move should not be considered a "downgrade" for the football team, which finished 1-11 last season, 1-7 in the conference.
Army Football To Depart Conference
Holed up in Newark for nearly three days, administrators from the Big East's football-playing schools broke camp Thursday with roster spots still available.
Or are they? Big East commissioner Michael Tranghese issued a statement claiming the partial meeting of his league resolved only concerns involving football scheduling, and that replacements for Miami and Virginia Tech - which leave in 2004 for the ACC - are still no closer than two years away. The replacements, however, may be only a short while away from being invited.
Army drops a hint as Big East ponders how to fill vacancies
Army, following through on a study of its athletics by a panel commissioned by the school's superintendent, has decided to leave Conference USA in football and return to independent status after the 2004 season.
The Cadets will remain in the Patriot League in all other sports.
West Point officials said yesterday the decision was not a knee-jerk reaction to ACC expansion and did not signal a move to downgrade the program. "We are totally committed to Division I-A," AD Rick Greenspan said.
