Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie sees Jasmine Thomas as someone who is never satisfied. Thanks to the junior guard, the Blue Devils now stand a win away from their first Final Four since 2006. Thomas matched her career-high with 29 points and sprinkled her stat line with a little bit of everything, and second-seeded Duke ended No. 11 seed San Diego State's surprising NCAA tournament run with a 66-58 victory Saturday to reach the regional final. "She's just a very hungry player, someone who loves to get out there and dictate and on both sides of the ball," McCallie said.

"500 Nations" is one of those television productions about which everybody tries to say nice things, but almost no one watches.The four-part, eight-hour documentary on Native Americans, which begins at 8 tonight on CBS (WJZ, Channel 13), features Kevin Costner as host and co-producer. The actor says the project grew out of his involvement in the Academy Award-winning feature film "Dances With Wolves."Costner and co-producer Jim Wilson do bring a big-screen feel, as well as a strong sense of storytelling, to "500 Nations."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The Hall of Fame awaits, but former San Diego Padres superstar Tony Gwynn has chosen to continue his baseball career among the halls of higher learning. He was one of major-league baseball's purest hitters. Now he is enjoying the purity of the game as it is played at the collegiate level. OK, enough with the cliches. Gwynn is in his first year as head coach at San Diego State University, and in his haste to transform the Aztecs into a top-level Division I program, he brought them to South Florida this weekend for a series against the highly regarded University of Miami Hurricanes.

TEPOZTLAN, Mexico -- Unless you have Aztecs in your family tree, you might find this city's name hard to pronounce. But so much else about the city is easy, or irresistible. The Aztec echoes, the steam baths, the ice cream, the pyramid, even the corn smut. Tepoztlan -- pronounced teh-pose-LAWN -- is a smallish city that sits in a lush valley rimmed by mountains that appear to have been smuggled out of a Chinese landscape painting. At its center, a 16th-century convent and church rise above a marketplace full of residents making tortillas, nibbling on fried grasshoppers and licking locally concocted sherbets.

At the Walters Art Museum, the 19th-century French countryside is the star of The Road to Impressionism: Landscapes from Corot to Monet. The Baltimore Museum of Art weighs in with its version of the dewy dappled look with In Monet's Light: Theodore Robinson at Giverny.

MEXICO CITY - Pope John Paul II canonized the first Indian saint of the Americas yesterday during a ceremony laced with emotional tributes to the Western Hemisphere's indigenous roots. Cheering and weeping, hundreds of thousands of Mexicans lined every inch of the 25-mile route the aged pontiff took in his "popemobile" between the Vatican residence here and the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The pope, appearing alert but extremely weak, has long expressed affection for overwhelmingly Roman Catholic Mexico.
