WASHINGTON - As bouncing leather balls and squeaking sneakers resonate throughout the practice gym at MCI Center, Pat Summitt leans on a railing overlooking the court. She's not doling out orders today. There's no new defense to install. No one is the recipient of her patented "stare." No, it's a more pacific venture than the one she has waged for 28 years as women's basketball coach at the University of Tennessee. This is a new ballgame for Pat Summitt. "I'm just going to sit back and watch," she said from her perch.

Honor the leaders Shannon Ryan Chicago Tribune The Mount Rushmore of college basketball should be carved into a North Carolina hill and include the same types of leaders and forward-thinkers that reside on the one in South Dakota. Without James Naismith, Mount Hoopsmore would be like Mount Rushmore without George Washington. It must include the man who invented the game, wrote the original rules and founded the University of Kansas' program. John Wooden, who won 10 national championships at UCLA, would be carved where Thomas Jefferson is placed.

PHILADELPHIA -- With Tennessee's other starters drawing so much notice, sophomore center Michelle Snow was the forgotten woman yesterday during the pre-game media briefing, but that didn't stop her from offering some entertaining observations. Snow, who set a Final Four record in Friday's 64-54 win over Rutgers with seven blocked shots, was more than a little amused by all the attention that top-ranked Connecticut is getting here. "We're getting so much motivation. I love it when they say, `So, how do you think you can beat Connecticut?

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- After Nebraska sliced apart the Tennessee football team in Friday night's Orange Bowl, this city needed a big hug, a bandage and for someone to tell them everything would be all right.As if on cue, their top-ranked Lady Volunteers women's basketball team stepped up and provided said comfort yesterday, in the form of an 84-69 nationally televised win over rival No. 3 Connecticut.The Lady Vols (15-0) did the nurturing thing to a crowd of 24,597 here at Thompson-Boling Arena -- the largest ever to see a women's college game -- with some stifling defense and a couple of withering runs, at the game's beginning and in the third quarter, to put the Huskies (12-1)

PHILADELPHIA -- Don't be surprised to see these same two teams -- Connecticut and Tennessee -- same approximate time, different place, in next year's championship in St. Louis. The two players Connecticut loses, Stacy Hansmeyer and Paige Sauer, played a total of eight minutes last night. The two players Tennessee loses, Niya Butts and LaShonda Stephens, played all of five minutes. Paucity of playing time for the departing seniors wasn't an aberration in either case. Along with Shea Ralph, Svetlana Abrosimova, Sue Bird or Tamika Catchings, Semeka Randall and Michelle Snow, both coaches -- Geno Auriemma and Pat Summitt -- are adding top-level freshman talent.
