MarchApril Upcoming games SILVER LINING: The president of Fresno State complained that the criminal behavior of the school's basketball team had damaged the university's image, to which a bright-sider added: "At the same time, however, their behavior has demonstrated that they're ready for the NBA." We know that it's 14, 13, 12, 11, we're just counting them down . . . just a handful of games left before we finish up as a team."

"Whatever you're involved in, you have to make your presence felt," said Riley, who chose not to start veteran Terry Mills. We felt Mark's presence Sunday night." Riley said Brown figures to be out about a week. In the meantime, he will rotate Strickland and Mills, depending on matchups. , Strickland, 27, a 6-foot-10, 220-pounder from Temple, played 31 games last season averaging 4.9 minutes, 2.0 points and 1J, rebounds. Originally signed by Atlanta in 1992, he was waived after a month with the Hawks, and, before signing with Miami, his entire NBA career consisted of four games (nine minutes) with the Indiana Pacers in 1994-95. Riley has a simple explanation for Strickland's improvement. "He knows the system better, Riley said. "Believe it or not, he listens to me. When he makes it big and gets one of those multiyear contracts, he'll probably stop listening. "He knows what I want and what I value. What I value in P.J. Brown goes far beyond his offensive numbers. Strick has to learn to make other contributions." La Salle High School.
