WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Its campus is located near the Norfolk, Va., waterfront, so it's entirely appropriate for the Old Dominion women's basketball team to have adopted a nautical theme for its season.And with 20 seconds left in last night's Mideast Regional final, a two-point lead over No. 7 Florida and three starters with four fouls each facing a possible overtime, the second-ranked Lady Monarchs' hopes of reaching the Final Four seemed to be in danger of taking on water.But the top-seeded Lady Monarchs' oft-maligned bench came through and Florida guard Dana Smith's 8-foot jumper bounded long off the rim with five seconds to go.As a result, Old Dominion will set sail for the national semifinals with a 53-51 win over the third-seeded Lady Gators.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- The breaks just seem to keep going the right way for the Old Dominion women's basketball team.Holding a one-point lead last Sunday near the end of overtime in their second-round game in the NCAA tournament, the Lady Monarchs watched a potential game-winning Purdue shot rim out, sending them on to yesterday's Mideast Regional semifinal here at Purdue's Mackey Arena.And in the semifinal, No. 2 Old Dominion, the top seed in the region, caught some luck when fourth-seeded Louisiana State couldn't find the basket for long-enough stretches to give the Lady Monarchs a 62-49 win.Old Dominion (32-1)

CINCINNATI -- The talk in women's basketball circles in January was that Tennessee, with a 10-6 record, had lost the magic that had brought last year's national championship.The Lady Vols, playing a murderous schedule, appeared to be on the verge of playing their way into a low seed in the NCAA tournament, or at worst, not even getting in, as coach Pat Summitt feared.But two months later, Tennessee claimed what seems to be the team's birthright, another national championship, with a 68-59 win over No. 2 Old Dominion.

CINCINNATI -- For people who know women's basketball beyond Rebecca Lobo or Sheryl Swoopes or Lisa Leslie, tonight's NCAA championship game between Tennessee and Old Dominion is like a page right out of history.The Lady Vols, of course, have always been a part of the tapestry of the game, as their four titles and 10 Final Four appearances attest.But, for Old Dominion, tonight's title game appearance is akin to Lauren Bacall's Oscar nomination after years of noticeable, but not widely acclaimed, work.

CINCINNATI -- A betting person would wager that, at some point, the Old Dominion women's basketball team will run out of the luck that has traveled with it all through the NCAA tournament.The trouble for their opponents is that by the time that happens, the Lady Monarchs may already have the national championship.With less than 10 seconds to play in overtime of their national semifinal last night, the second-ranked Lady Monarchs, clinging to a one-point lead and with two starters fouled out, allowed third-ranked Stanford to have three shots at the basket, any one of which would have ended their season.
