HOUSTON -- Convincing many of the NBA's elite All-Stars to participate in the league's marquee promotional event hasn't been, well, a slam-dunk the last few years. While guys like Dominique Wilkins, Michael Jordan and Julius Erving once spiced up All-Star weekend, this year's dunk masters included defending champion Josh Smith along with Nate Robinson, Andre Iguodala and Hakim Warrick. The New York Knicks' 5-foot-9 Robinson prevailed over the Philadelphia 76ers' Iguodala. His signature dunk was a leap over 5-7 Spud Webb, the 1986 dunk champ.

The good news for women's basketball this week is that Sheryl Swoopes, who carried Texas Tech to a national championship last year and propelled the sport to higher visibility, will be in Richmond, Va., for this year's Final Four.The bad news for women's basketball, and by extension, CBS, which will carry Saturday's semifinals and Sunday's championship game, is that Swoopes, who graduated last year, will only be signing autographs.For the women's game, which has neither the tradition nor the following of the men's tournament, a highly visible player -- such as Swoopes or former Southern California great Cheryl Miller -- or a dominant team, like traditional power Tennessee, is easy to sell to a national viewing audience.

UMBC Coach: Jennifer Bednarek, third season at UMBC (29-54). Affiliation: Northeast Conference. 1999-2000 record: 7-21 (4-14 in NEC). Radio: WMBC (560 AM). Arena: Retriever Activities Center Arena (4,000). Consensus Northeast favorite: St. Francis, Pa. Consensus UMBC prediction: Ninth. Starters lost: Two. Outlook: Using several freshmen, the Retrievers lost eight games by five points or fewer last season. They won't be much more experienced, as Bednarek looks to blend in five freshmen, including forward Danielle Heffel, who will start.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- If the 11th-ranked Texas Tech women's basketball team is harboring any anxiety about facing No. 2 Tennessee in tonight's Mideast Regional title game, it certainly is doing a good job of masking it. The Lady Raiders did the tourist thing here yesterday before practicing for tonight's showdown (ESPN, 9), hitting Graceland and a popular doughnut chain store, then facing the media with an air of confidence and anticipation. After all, Texas Tech (28-4) has played the spoiler role all year, sharing the Big 12 regular-season title after being picked fifth in the league in the preseason.

ATLANTA -- Down in the West Texas town of Lubbock, the folks talk about suffering from "Swoopla."That's not the disease of the week from some television movie, but a malady caused by repeated exposures to Texas Tech forward Sheryl Swoopes.Yesterday, the No. 1 Vanderbilt Commodores caught a severe case of "Swoopla" and were bounced from the NCAA women's Final Four by the fifth-ranked Red Raiders, 60-46.Swoopes, the National Player of the Year, scored 31 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and made life generally unpleasant for the Commodores.
