Connecticut fans may have seen their last NCAA tournament game in Storrs for a while. Coach Geno Auriemma, disappointed that fewer than 6,000 fans showed up at the 10,000-seat Gampel Pavilion for UConn's second-round win over Purdue on Tuesday, said he would ask athletic director Jeff Hathaway not to bid on hosting the tournament for the next five years. Auriemma joked that it might help if UConn won more games. The team has lost once in the last three seasons. "I think we have a real spoiled group of fans," he said.

Connecticut's Jeff Adrien took it personally when he heard his team couldn't win the big one. The doubters' worries grew louder after the Huskies' six-overtime loss to Syracuse in the Big East Tournament, UConn's fifth consecutive postseason defeat. "It hurt a lot," said Adrien, who played in all five of those losses. "It made me work harder. We had to fight through adversity to get to where we're at. " After four wins in the NCAA Tournament, Adrien said the Huskies will take that same emotion with them this weekend to Detroit, where Connecticut will play in the program's third Final Four, hoping to earn UConn's third national championship.

Ben Gordon was well on his way to a career night when the sellout crowd at Gampel Pavilion started chanting "You can't stop him" with 14 minutes to play. Nevada needed no reminder. Gordon scored a career-high 37 points last night to lead the top-ranked Huskies to a 93-79 victory over visiting Nevada and into the semifinals of the Preseason NIT. Emeka Okafor finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds for the Huskies (2-0), who will play the winner of tonight's Georgia Tech-Hofstra second-round game.

Children skipped school and adults slipped out of work in Storrs, Conn., yesterday as Husky fever swept the city. About 5,000 fans turned out for a midafternoon rally at Gampel Pavilion to help the Connecticut Huskies celebrate their second women's NCAA basketball title in five years. The Hossack sisters - Ashley, 12 and Shauna, 10 - sported blue and white face paint and waved their signs to the beat of the pep band. They weren't in school because "we said we had a dentist appointment," said Ashley.

The steps to the Final Four of the NCAA women's basketball tournament got steeper for top-ranked Connecticut for a while last night. But after an early stumble or two, the Huskies (32-0) got their game together in front of another sellout crowd of 8,241 at Gampel Pavilion and crushed Alabama, 87-56, in an East Regional semifinal game. The victory sent UConn into tomorrow's regional championship against Virginia, which defeated Louisiana Tech, 63-62, last night. The author of Connecticut's latest wipeout was all-America point guard Jen Rizzotti, who had a season-high 24 points, 7 assists and 8 rebounds.

Sue Bird didn't know if she could redeem herself after losing the ball at a key moment in the game. She got her shot - and made it. Bird hit a fadeway jumper at the buzzer to lift No. 2 Connecticut to a 78-76 victory over No. 1 Notre Dame last night in Storrs, Conn., and give the Huskies their 10th Big East Tournament championship. Bird raced downcourt with the inbounds pass with 5.1 seconds left after Ruth Riley made the second of her two free throws after missing the first.

You can't blame Geno Auriemma. If he had to wait for a close game to do some serious coaching, there would be entire months when you might not be able to distinguish him from the Connecticut mascot. So even though his top-ranked Huskies beat Boston College by 25 points, or 79-54, in a Big East tournament semifinal last night, there was Auriemma stomping his foot angrily and wagging a finger in Swin Cash's face. UConn led by 14 points at the time. "We got on Swin pretty good at halftime," Auriemma said.

Welcome to the NCAA tournament's pro-am. Each year, because the women's top 16 seeds open at home, Connecticut gets placed in a foursome with three awestruck amateurs on its home course. Hampton, Clemson and Drake begin play here tonight when the NCAA tournament East subregional tees off at Gampel Pavilion. Connecticut is just working on its swing. If you think anyone but the Huskies are going to advance to next weekend's regionals in Richmond, Va., you're not playing with a full set of irons.

The undefeated and No. 1-ranked Connecticut women's basketball team did something yesterday that it had not done all season - it won the hard way. The Huskies survived Virginia's best shot - a 34-8 first-half run - to gain a 67-63 NCAA East Regional title victory and earn a trip to the Women's Final Four in Minneapolis. Kara Wolters, Connecticut's 6-foot-7 sophomore center, led the winners with 18 points; Jennifer Rizzotti scored 13 and Jamelle Elliott added 12. All three were plagued by foul trouble for much of the game.

Growing up in West Philadelphia, DePaul junior forward Keisha Hampton always loved playing basketball against her brothers and cousins at the neighborhood playground. With the raw talent she developed there, Hampton went on to graduate from Engineering & Science High as one of the all-time greats in Philadelphia Public League basketball history. She returned home last night as a first-team All-Big East selection, leading No. 3-seed DePaul into the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 for just the second time in school history.

THERE IS NO point trying to sell this weekend's Philadelphia Regional of the women's NCAA Tournament as any more than what it is. Not only will the fox enter the hen house Sunday, the doors of the Liacouras Center will be locked behind her. If you want to see women's collegiate basketball played at its highest level, you should definitely watch top-ranked Connecticut. But if you hope to see a miracle upset, don't hold your breath. UConn's winning this region and advancing to the Final Four in Indianapolis is as close to a lock as you can get in sports.

STORRS, Conn. - Before yesterday's Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee, seventh-ranked Villanova had played four road games: at Penn, La Salle, Monmouth and South Florida. This time, the obstacle happened to be a fellow Top 10 Big East rival. It won't be the last. Yet for most of the way at Gampel Pavilion, that didn't make much of a difference. The Wildcats, winners of 11 in a row, led No. 8 Connecticut by seven points with 9 minutes to go. In the end, though, it came down to the Huskies' player-of-the-year candidate unfurling one more big-time highlight than his former junior-high teammate.

STORRS, Conn. - Villanova coach Jay Wright saw a lot of Kemba Walker over the summer when he coached him on the USA Select Team that scrimmaged against Team USA before the World Championships. He liked what he saw. Wright will see a lot of Walker again on Monday afternoon, but probably won't like it nearly as much. Walker, Connecticut's 6-foot-1 junior, has emerged as the Big East's best player and a national player of the year candidate in the first half of the season. He will put his talents on display when the 10th-ranked Huskies (14-2, 3-2 Big East)

Villanova did not need a cast of giants to beat No. 1 Connecticut, whose size was matched only by its reputation. The No. 4 Wildcats just needed to be themselves. Villanova knocked off the Huskies, 69-64, last night in a Big East showdown at the Wachovia Center in front of 20,859 fans, many of whom stormed the court after the win. It was the largest crowd ever to watch a college basketball game in Pennsylvania. The last Wildcats win over a No. 1 team was Feb. 18, 1995, when they beat UConn, 96-73, at the Gampel Pavilion.

UConn's last defeat at Gampel was a 72-71 loss to Tennessee on Feb. 1, 2001. The sixth-ranked Fighting Irish (18-3, 6-2 Big East)
