Reaching the National Invitation Tournament marked the first major milestone in the University of Connecticut's climb back to college basketball respectability. It was announced last night that Connecticut (15-14), of the Big East Conference, will play West Virginia (18-13), of the Atlantic 10, in an opening-round game Thursday night in Morgantown, W.Va. The tournament will be held at campus sites until the semifinals and finals in New York's Madison Square Garden March 29 and 30. "Now we have something tangible," said coach Jim Calhoun, whose arrival on the Connecticut campus, along with that of athletic director Todd Turner in the spring of 1986, signaled the beginning of the program's turnaround.

Chris Douglas-Roberts scored a career-high 33 points and No. 3 Memphis, after racing out to a big early lead, held on to beat Connecticut, 81-70, last night in the championship game of the 2K Sports College Hoops Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden. Freshman sensation Derrick Rose added a career-high 24 points for the Tigers, who opened an early 15-point lead but found themselves trailing by one at the half. Rose looked every bit the first-year player running the point, though, turning the ball over five times without an assist.

BUFFALO - Villanova picked the wrong time to struggle in the areas in which it had been successful this season, and the result was elimination in the third round of the NCAA East Regional. The Wildcats committed 16 turnovers, shot just 35 percent from the floor, and were kept off the offensive boards by Connecticut, which rode a 25-point performance by Shabazz Napier Saturday night to a 77-65 victory at the First Niagara Center. Second-seeded Villanova, the regular-season champion of the Big East, ended its season with a 29-5 record.

IF IT'S TEMPLE basketball and it's Thursday, then it could only mean one thing: yet another game against a Top 25 opponent.

STAMFORD, Conn. - Officials call Connecticut the sports-media headquarters of the world, with the 19-building complex that is ESPN in Bristol and offices for World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. and the Yankees' YES Network here. Now they can add NBC Sports. Lured by generous tax credits and modern TV studios, the Comcast Corp.-owned NBC Sports is bailing on 30 Rockefeller Plaza in midtown Manhattan - the most prestigious address in the TV business - after rehabbing and reconfiguring a Clairol hair-products factory for $100 million.

NEW ORLEANS - Geno Auriemma and Connecticut are back on top. With freshman Breanna Stewart leading the way, it might be a while before they relinquish that spot. Stewart scored 18 of her 23 points in the first half and Connecticut won its eighth national championship with a 93-60 rout of Louisville on Tuesday night. It was the most lopsided victory in a title game. The title tied Auriemma and the Huskies (35-4) with Pat Summitt and Tennessee for the most in women's basketball history.

STORRS, Conn. - There may not be much court familiarity when it comes to the schools in the NCAA women's tournament subregional at Connecticut, but the appearance of St. Joseph's for the first time since 2000 has injected touches of nostalgia through the four teams.

BRITTNEY GRINER and Baylor's path to a second straight national championship will have a familiar feel. Then again, so will the whole Women's NCAA Tournament. For the first time ever, the top four seeds are the same for consecutive seasons. Baylor, Connecticut, Notre Dame and Stanford all earned No. 1 spots when the field was announced Monday night. Unlike the men's side, where it was a topsy-turvy season with major upsets seemingly every week, women's basketball hasn't seen the same parity.
