One thing is for sure when No. 1 Northwestern meets fifth-ranked North Carolina on Sunday evening for the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse championship - there won't be any snow. When the two teams met in Chapel Hill in March, their first attempt to play was rained out. Their second went on despite a couple of inches of snow overnight, temperatures in the 30s and wind - weather more akin to the Wildcats' home on the shore of Lake Michigan. The Wildcats apparently didn't mind; they won, 12-7.

A tenacious 22-4 run over the final two minutes of the second period and through the third period propelled No. 5 Seton Keough over top-ranked Arundel, 51-34, in Gambrills last night.It was Arundel's first loss at home in two years, the last defeat in the region semifinals to eventual region champion Annapolis in the Wildcats' final game of the 1993-94 season. The Wildcats have only lost three games overall the past two seasons.The visiting Gators got seven points or more and at least five boards from four starters and played a solid collapsing defense in routing the defending Class 4A state champions.

Somewhere, The Baron must be smiling.Adolph Rupp, the legendary coach, would be proud of the University of Kentucky team that his third successor, Rick Pitino, is preparing for the NCAA's Final Four this weekend.The Wildcats are playing their best basketball of the season and the best of any team remaining in the tournament. They are not just winning, they are destroying opponents.This is a young and hungry team -- guards Dale Brown and Junior Braddy are the only significant seniors -- that is on a mission after last season's 104-103, overtime defeat to Duke and Christian Laettner's miracle jumper in the East Regional final that was arguably the best college game ever played.

MINNEAPOLIS - They snipped slowly and carefully, until each strand of nylon had been cut away from the rim. Kentucky forward Antoine Walker then pointed his teammates to the other end of the floor, where the procedure began anew until both baskets were bare.It took longer for the top-seeded Wildcats to dismember the nets at the Metrodome or, as one of their many fans called it, "My Old Kentucky Dome" than it did to dismantle second-seeded Wake Forest during a frighteningly routine 83-63 victory in yesterday's NCAA Midwest Regional final.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Mike Bibby had heard all the talk about how Stanford was going to do the same thing to Arizona on Thursday night it had done two weeks ago to UCLA.And Bibby heard all the chants from Stanford's rowdy student body from the stands at Maples Pavilion in pre-game warm-ups and for the first 25 minutes of the game.About being overrated.About hating his estranged father, Henry, the coach at USC."They were trying to get into our heads," Bibby said after the game. "They were trying to see what would happen, how far they could go. I thought, 'It'll come back to them.

PHILADELPHIA -- Unrealistic expectations about its beloved basketball team grow like the bluegrass along the rolling hills of Kentucky. They are passed from one generation of fans to another like some family heirloom.But when the Wildcats were placed on NCAA probation three years ago and put out of postseason competition until this year, the expectations became a little more reasonable, the goals a little more realistic."I think most of the fans -- not all them -- just wanted us to get back in the NCAA tournament," Kentucky coach Rick Pitino said earlier this week.
