Extractions: Not long ago, as the legend of Michael Jordan was taking off and he was starting to amass scoring titles the way kids collect trading cards, there was a joke making the rounds of NBA cities. The only person, the punch line went, capable of holding him under 20 points was Dean Smith, his coach at North Carolina. For many rivals, defending Jordan was like preparing for a hurricane: Secure the valuables, take cover and pray the damage isn't too bad. Naturally, some handled the difficult assignment better than others. While no one could lay claim to being a Jordan-stopper, a select few were torched less frequently and even frustrated His Airness at times. Of course, for every player to give Jordan trouble, there were at least two poor saps who offered little resistance and were flattened like roadkill. THE TOP FIVE JOE DUMARS No one was capable of stopping Jordan one-on-one, but Dumars had more success than most because he focused on playing fundamental defense and wasn't intimidated. Jordan always mentioned Dumars when asked to name his toughest defenders, but the competition also brought out the best in Jordan at times. He scored 61 points in an overtime win against the Detroit Pistons in 1987 and added a 59-point effort in 1988.

Extractions: H is is starting to become a household name. Former K-State basketball star Mitch Richmond has finally started turning heads. It might be better said that heads are finally starting to turn. Few NBA players have equaled Richmond's ability at guard since he joined the ranks of the professionals in 1988. In his senior season as a Wildcat in 1987, Richmond earned second-team all-America honors. He averaged 22.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. His strength lay behind the three-point line. In 1988, he helped the U.S. Olympic team to a bronze medal in Seoul, Korea. As a fifth-round draft choice in 1988, the Golden State Warriors held their arms out wide for Richmond. Warrior fans loved Richmond as he became part of the popular "Run TMC" trio. Chris Mullin, Tim Hardaway and Richmond combined to give the Warriors a fighting chance in a competitive league. And still he received no respect. Now with the Sacramento Kings, Richmond has earned himself a spot again on America's Dream Team and a trip to the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. In the first three of five exhibition games, Dream Team III saw Richmond play an average 17.7 minutes per game while averaging 10.7 points per game.

You can also read his previous columns K-State shot the ball pretty well. It was shooting 59 percent in the first half but still trailed by 10 points at halftime, because Missouri was draining threes like they were rain drops. Missouri freshman Kareem Rush was magical in the first half, and the Tigers seemed like they could not miss from downtown. It is hard to say if many teams in the country could have beaten Missouri on Saturday - it was just that good. Throughout the game, K-State worked to close the lead only to have it increased by a Missouri three.

Extractions: Posted In Sports My favorite moment of the Lakers' NBA Championships win last night was when they let Mitch Richmond hold the ball as time ran out. Until recently, I wasn't aware of Richmond. I'm new to following basketball, so I didn't know that he was a top player stuck on a horrible team for years, than he's one of only 31 players to score more than 20,000 points. After something like 14 years, he finally gets to win a championship and his teammates have the class to recognize his talent by giving him the ball for the game's final moments.

Extractions: The Sporting News Derek Fisher paused a moment to imagine it, him in a plush office, wearing a three-piece suit and power tie, sitting behind a desk, blathering into the phone. In reality, Fisher was wearing his uniform and a Lakers championship cap, his head soaked in the stinging mixture of champagne and sweat that dribbled into his eyes, leaving him squinting and annoyed he hardly looked like a dapper executive. But, sure, he could mentally transplant himself into the front office of NBA Anyteam, filling the role of opposing general manager in this era of Lakers dominance. Mr. Fisher, it's Mr. Moneybags, the team owner, holding on Line 2 what shall we tell him?
