SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The NCAA women's final four semifinal basketball game between No. 3 Stanford and No. 1 Virginia will match Stanford's shooters against Virginia's ball handlers, Stanford's agility against Virginia's size and Stanford's depth against Virginia's experience.But Virginia has an X factor in senior point guard Dawn Staley, and that's where the Cavaliers can force Stanford's hand."Dawn Staley separates them from the rest of the pack," said Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer, whose Cardinal (28-3)

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Electrical engineering Professor John L. Hennessy, who recently reeled in the largest gift in Stanford's history, was named yesterday as the university's next president. The appointment is expected to position the campus to harvest big donations from alumni and professors who have joined the wealthy in the surrounding Silicon Valley. Hennessy, 47, the university's No. 2 administrator, was a natural choice as an inside candidate, given the enormous pressures on campus presidents to raise large donations.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Almost as soon as the final buzzer sounded, Brevin Knight was gone.Without stopping even for handshakes or hugs, he pulled the front of his jersey out of his shorts, stuck the bottom of the jersey in between his teeth and all but sprinted to the Stanford locker room at the San Jose Arena.Just before he disappeared beneath the stands, he hesitated briefly, for just an instant, and let his eyes savor the sight of the roaring crowd one more time.There would be no more tomorrows for Knight, Stanford's brilliant senior point guard, after Utah's 82-77 victory in the semifinals of the West Regional last night.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Bill Walsh stepped out of the press box and back into college football yesterday, saying that his decision to return to Stanford University as its football coach was spurred by a love for teaching and coaching.Walsh, who coached the San Francisco 49ers to three Super Bowl titles before joining NBC as its No. 1 pro football analyst in 1989, agreed to a five-year contract that will reportedly pay him $350,000 a year.At a news conference here, Walsh denied speculation that he was expected to take on a diminished role at NBC, saying that the network had no intention of making him its No. 2 analyst and even offered him a contract extension.

NEW YORK -- Adam Keefe, a red-haired Stanford junior with shoulders about as broad as Kevin McHale's, will play center for the Cardinal tonight (9, ESPN) against Oklahoma in the championship game of the National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden.But according to several of the pro scouts Keefe drew to the semifinals Monday night, he is a made-to-order power forward, marked for delivery to the National Basketball Association."He is an excellent inside player who can shoot from the outside," said Hal Wissel, a former Fordham coach who scouts for the Milwaukee Bucks.

MIAMI -- Penn State's last chance to beat a ranked team ended like all the other chances this season:In frustration, futility and defeat.After the Nittany Lions endured a 24-3 loss to No. 13 Stanford in the Blockbuster Bowl yesterday, their 7-5 season carried a sorry bottom line.History will show they lost to all five ranked teams they played this season, and handled -- but not always easily -- the seven that weren't.Maybe that's why coach Joe Paterno looked like a legend who stayed beyond his time, dodging questions about Penn State's erratic season of underachieving.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Responding to the uproar from students and parents over the skyrocketing cost of going to college, Stanford University is laying off employees and cutting its administrative budget this fall in an effort to put a lid on tuition and fees that are heading toward $25,000 a year.The move, while bold and virtually unprecedented for an institution of Stanford's stature, carries substantial risks. The image of Stanford, home of two Nobel Prize winners named recently, has already begun to suffer because of a perception among some students that the university is somehow gutting itself with the budget ax.Colleges and universities across the country are watching to see what happens to Stanford after taking this academic equivalent of a no-new-taxes pledge.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- There was always another body, always another foul for Tim Duncan yesterday.There will not be another game, though. Not in the NCAA tournament, anyway, and not for Wake Forest.Next stop for Wake's 6-foot-10 All-American: the NBA.Stanford wrote the final chapter in his marvelous college career with a 72-66 upset in the West Regional. In a bruising, bare-knuckle affair, the Cardinal never ran out of bodies -- or fouls -- for Duncan, and Stanford's reward is its first trip to the Sweet 16.The sixth-seeded Cardinal (22-7)
