PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Donta Bright shrugged off the significance of the open 15-foot jumper, but in his free time in hTC Atlanta this week, he'll appreciate it for what it was, maybe the most important basket he's ever made.Massachusetts was up by 13 on Stanford with seven minutes to go in the second round of the East Regional yesterday, but junior guard Brevin Knight juked the Cardinal to a 21-9 run that shaved the difference to one in the last minute and had the nation's No. 1 team teetering on the brink of elimination.

MINNEAPOLIS -- It would certainly be inaccurate to suggest that the success of the top-ranked and unbeaten Connecticut women's basketball team lies entirely with only two players, for no successful team lives and dies with only two fully functioning parts.But the Huskies certainly wouldn't have gone so far down the road to a national championship, which includes yesterday's 87-60 pasting of No. 4 Stanford, if not for the special talents of Rebecca Lobo and Kara Wolters.Virtually everyone has heard of Lobo, the 6-foot-4 senior forward from Southwick, Mass.

OAKLAND, Calif. - In a matchup that eventually lived up to its billing, Casey Jacobsen hit a short jumper off the glass with 3.6 seconds remaining to give No. 3 Stanford an 84-83 victory over top-ranked Duke last night in the Pete Newell Challenge. Jacobsen, who finished with 26 points, put Stanford ahead for the first time in the second half by shooting over Duke's Jason Williams, capping a Cardinal comeback from a 15-point deficit. Williams, who finished with 22 points, missed a potential game-winning layup as the clock expired.

The Stanford basketball team thought it had silenced the skeptics when the Cardinal reached last year's Final Four and took the subsequent champion, Kentucky, to the overtime buzzer in the NCAA semifinals in San Antonio.The Cardinal became the chic choice in Sports Illustrated's preseason poll last month, with senior point guard Arthur Lee adorning the magazine's cover. But five games into the season, the same questions asked during the middle of last season are being raised again.Can Stanford beat another Top 10 team on the road?

SAN DIEGO -- For the second time this season, St. Joseph's guard Marvin O'Connor had his name on the lips of every person who watched a game he lost. It happened first on March 3, when he scored 18 points in one minute during a loss to La Salle. The second time came last night, when his team lost to Stanford, 90-83, in the second round of the NCAA West Regional, but even the normally irreverent Stanford band participated in a standing ovation when O'Connor fouled out in the last minute.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- There probably isn't the same kind of playground basketball on the streets of Georgia guard Saudia Roundtree's hometown of Anderson, S.C., as there is in, say, New York or Baltimore.But Roundtree's swagger and her game carry much of the free-flowing element of the playground, which she'll take into tomorrow's national women's championship game, as the fifth-ranked Lady Bulldogs beat No. 3 Stanford, 86-76, in the second semifinal in the NCAA women's Final Four last night.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Central Florida knocked Marcus Camby down. They stepped on his midsection and scratched his face, but top-ranked Massachusetts overcame the woes of the leading candidate for Player of the Year and a first-half lapse, and pulled away to victory, 92-70.Camby had 17 rebounds and 14 points, but he missed 15 shots and needed four stitches on his forehead midway through the second half, courtesy of a misplaced swipe at the ball by Knights forward Reid Ketteler. Camby missed five minutes for the cut job and to change his bloody jersey, and his start wasn't so hot either, as he collapsed with just 2: 30 elapsed and writhed in pain for a minute.

CINCINNATI -- Women's basketball players may not have the speed or the leaping ability of men, but they and their coaches can duck the favorite's role just as easily as their male counterparts can.Three of the four participants in this weekend's Final Four -- Old Dominion, Tennessee and Notre Dame -- spent a good part of yesterday's media briefings, which precede tonight's national semifinals, trying to adopt the underdog mantle.Each of the four beat at least two ranked teams to make their way to the Final Four.
