PHOTOPhotograph by Bob RosatoBARNES STORMING North Carolina freshman forward Harrison Barnes did his best to tune out Duke's Cameron Crazies in Durham, N.C., on Feb. 9. Harrison had nine points and six rebounds, but the 20th-ranked Tar Heels lost to the No. 5 Blue Devils 79--73.PHOTOPhotograph by Damian StrohmeyerWAIST MANAGEMENT The Celtics' 6'1" point guard, Rajon Rondo, took his defense to new lows against 6'8" Heat forward LeBron James, who was trying to find an open teammate in Boston on Sunday. Rondo's triple double helped the Celtics prevail 85--82 and gain a half-game lead over Miami in the Eastern Conference standings.PHOTOPhotograph by Jon Super/APFLIPPIN' GREAT! Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney scored on a bicycle kick in the 78th minute to deliver a 2--1 victory over crosstown rival Manchester City at Man U's Old Trafford stadium last Saturday. The spectacular upside-down goal, which Rooney declared the best of his career, was only his fifth of the Premier League season. The win extended the Red Devils' lead to four points over Arsenal.
