SAN JOSE, Calif. -- After four years of turmoil, three different coaches and more than a few setbacks, Purdue guards Stephanie White-McCarty and Ukari Figgs thought they had the market on disappointment cornered.And with the top-ranked Boilermakers trailing by five at halftime of last night's national championship game, scoring fewer points in a half than any other team in the 18-year history of the women's Final Four, it may have occurred to them that all of their suffering would be for nothing.

Brittany Rayburn scored 21 points and ninth-seeded Purdue moved into the second round of the NCAA tournament with a 53-45 win over Kansas State (21-11) on Sunday in Storrs, Conn. Drey Mingo, a Maryland transfer who overcame a life-threatening bout with meningitis this season, added 16points for the Boilermakers (21-11), who advance to play the tournament's top seed, Connecticut, on Tuesday. "We stepped up on the defensive end, and that really got us going offensively," Mingo said.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Gene Keady's history with Purdue in the NCAA tournament is not a pretty one, filled with early exits and only one trip to the Elite Eight in his first 17 tries. It was in stark contrast to Gonzaga, the Cinderella team that came within a few ticks of making the Final Four last season. That all changed last night. The sixth-seeded Boilermakers built a 13-point lead midway through the first half and held off three second-half runs by the 10th-seeded Bulldogs in the first West Regional semifinal game at The Pit. A 75-66 victory carried Purdue to within a game of its first Final Four appearance in 31 years for what might amount to home-court advantage in Indianapolis.

As Purdue stumbled to a 13-18 record last season, there were whispers that longtime coach Gene Keady was one more losing season away from retiring - or being retired. Willie Deane thought it was unfair, considering what Keady had done in his first 21 seasons coaching the Boilermakers. It marked his second losing record at Purdue and the second time one of his Boilermakers teams failed to make the postseason. "I didn't really see how anybody could make that statement," Deane, a 6-foot-1 senior guard, said yesterday.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- There's a serious chord of familiarity running through tonight's NCAA women's national championship game between Duke and Purdue, but very little, if any, contempt.Though the two campuses are separated by hundreds of miles, the top-ranked Boilermakers and 10th-ranked Blue Devils know each other quite well.Start with the concept that Duke coach Gail Goestenkors cut her coaching teeth at West Lafayette, as the top assistant at Purdue under former coach Lin Dunn, before she came to Durham in 1992.

Since this is the season that instant replay has come to most of college football, we have decided to review an opinion espoused in this space recently that Louisville was the most disappointing team in the country. Certainly, the Cardinals haven't lived up to the preseason predictions of running the table in the suspect Big East and finding their way to a Bowl Championship Series invitation. But upon further review, we have decided that Purdue is the biggest bust of the season. The Boilermakers, picked to win the Big Ten because they didn't have to play perennial powerhouses Michigan and Ohio State, haven't won since opening the season with wins over Akron and Arizona.

NEW ORLEANS -- For 36 minutes yesterday, defending champion Florida and feisty Purdue played to a near-stalemate. In the final four minutes, the Gators threw the ball to forward Al Horford, the one man Purdue struggled to match. Horford, the best player on No. 1 seed Florida, scored six of his 17 points in the game's final 3:13 to help the Gators put away No. 9 seed Purdue, 74-67, in a second-round game. "Al is a monster," teammate Joakim Noah said. "He's really been leading us. Al's been playing unbelievable basketball.

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo recounts how Delvon Roe's hand frequently was planted firmly in front of Purdue center JaJuan Johnson's shot and how it just didn't matter. Loads of Big Ten opponents already know that moving Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger off the block is like trying to push a boulder with a pencil. One has been a work in progress for four seasons, the other an instant success. One has the power of strength, the other the skill of versatility.

Purdue quarterback Robert Marve will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee in the first quarter of the Boilermakers' 31-20 loss to Toledo on Saturday. Marve tore the same ACL last summer, although he couldn't have played last season because of NCAA transfer rules after going to Purdue from Miami (Fla.). The junior tweaked the knee Sept. 18 but returned a week later. • NFL agent Gary Wichard and former North Carolina assistant John Blake , at the center of an ongoing NCAA investigation, have been tied to multiple financial transactions, according to Yahoo Sports.

Purdue was teetering. Desperate Washington was roaring back. The Huskies' close-to-home crowd was screaming. And the stifling intensity that makes the NCAA tournament so popular blanketed the court. Amid all that, JaJuan Johnson stood tallest. As if on a pogo stick, Johnson blocked not one but two attempts by Washington to tie the game with a minute remaining. He also scored 22 points as the fifth-seeded Boilermakers held off a frantic charge to beat the fourth-seeded Huskies, 76-74, in Portland, Ore., to advance to their first regional semifinals since 2000.
