It's not exactly the irresistible force meeting the immovable object, but destiny has a tough choice to make this afternoon in the NCAA West Regional Championship game. Does she finally smile on Connecticut, who after so many hard-twisting misfortunes, is again poised to advance to its first Final Four? Or does she stick with upstart Gonzaga - the Little School That Could, battling for the pride of midmajor programs everywhere? In a situation like this, destiny can't lose.

The Gonzaga basketball team said Thursday it was tired of the Cinderella tag that had been hung around its neck. Then, last night, the Bulldogs were just tired. After 30 minutes against the Michigan State Spartans - 30 minutes against the defending national champions, the NCAA South Regional's top seed - their legs deserted them. First, their shots fell short, then they fell wildly long in compensation. Turnover then piled upon turnover as the Spartans sensed what was happening.

IT WAS every frontrunner's nightmare. Top-seeded Gonzaga ran into a No. 16 seed that wasn't playing like one, a crowd itching for an upset and the very real prospect of making history in a most embarrassing way. Somehow, the Zags maneuvered their way out of that mess Thursday in Salt Lake City with a 64-58 win over Southern University, but not before they provided plenty of fodder for all those who wondered if that small school from the small...

PITTSBURGH - West Virginia took a 75-mile bus ride to town. Gonzaga flew more than 2,200 miles. Many said it wasn't fair that the No. 7 seed had to travel so far to play No. 10, barely an hour from its campus, at the Consol Energy Center. They were all right. It wasn't fair. Gonzaga jumped West Virginia midway through the first half Thursday night and never let up, blowing the Mountaineers out of the Big East to the Big 12 with a sendoff that only a Pittsburgh fan could love.

Gonzaga and Brigham Young, two of the best teams west of the Rockies, will face off in Denver on Saturday. For the 25-9 Zags, the 11th seed, the key to advancing is simple: stop the Cougars' Jimmer Fredette, who scored 32 points in BYU's win over Wofford, and has averaged 28.6 points per game in leading BYU (31-4) to the No. 3 seed in the Southeast Regional. The Cougars, meanwhile, will be doing precisely the opposite. Wisconsin vs. Kansas State. After an impressive first half against Utah State in their second-round game, Kansas State played the second half like the team coach Frank Martin got fed up with early in the season.

Less than a week after winning their holiday tournament with an upset of then-No. 15 Auburn, the St. Joseph's women were deflated by Gonzaga yesterday at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse. The Bulldogs (9-6) were 67-43 winners in a matinee game for schoolchildren. They made the trip from Spokane, Wash., for just this nonconference game, their first against the Hawks (7-7). "We stopped in Utah along the way," coach Kelly Graves joked. "Doesn't everyone make that Utah-Philly road swing?

Jeremiah Dominguez scored 25 points last night, helping Portland State knock off seventh-ranked Gonzaga, 77-70, in Spokane, Wash. This was Portland State's first win over a ranked team since it reinstated its basketball program for the 1996-97 season. Portland State (9-3), which relied on a short, quick lineup, outrebounded the Zags by 39-30. The Vikings stayed in front by hitting 12 three-pointers. Gonzaga (8-3) looked sloppy, committing 11 turnovers, missing layups, and shooting only 42 percent.

SPOKANE, Wash. - Saint Joseph's suffered the most lopsided men's basketball loss in school history Wednesday evening, but coach Phil Martelli almost managed a smile afterwards. "Tomorrow's my 38th wedding anniversary," Martelli said. "It's a hell of a gift. " The young Hawks sank just three of 28 field-goal attempts (10.7 percent) in the first half, trailed 48-10 at intermission and fell 94-42 to 13th-ranked Gonzaga in the opening round of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

YOU KNOW you have become really big when the pundit class no longer focuses on your long run of excellence, but your lack of recent significant NCAA success and absence of any Final Four appearances. Gonzaga has been so good for so long that Mark Few's team is examined like it is one of the game's superpowers. It's not fair, of course, but who said fair is part of the 21st-century equation. When your program is a lock to be in its 18th consecutive NCAA Tournament this March and your coach is 405-100, that really is quite enough.

In the grand Gonzaga vision, Arizona would have gotten such a game from the Zags in their round-of-32 game in San Diego on Sunday night that perhaps they'd feel a little fear about a face-losing defeat as a No. 1 seed. Fear? The Zags mostly saw only fastbreaks, buzzing past them. And relentless defense. The top-seeded Wildcats ran the eighth-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs out of Viejas Arena, winning, 84-61, to advance to the NCAA regional semifinals up the freeway in Anaheim. "We love playing defense," freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said.

Freshman Andrew Wiggins led the Jayhawks (6-3) with 26 points and 11 rebounds - his first double-double and both career highs.

Of all the positions on the 76ers, none is more of a concern heading into next season than the center spot. Time will tell if the organization brings back Andrew Bynum, an unrestricted free agent who never played a game for the team. The organization could try to fill that need by selecting Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk in the June 27 NBA draft. The Sixers will likely be awarded the draft's 11th pick during Tuesday night's NBA draft lottery in New York. Mock drafts by NBAdraft.net and other websites have the team using that pick on Olynyk.

LOS ANGELES - Here we go again, another team with more size and depth trying to wear down La Salle. In the Shockers' 76-70 third-round win over the West's top seed Gonzaga, nine players saw seven minutes or more. Even though the Shockers have a decided size advantage, the key for La Salle is going to be how it defends the perimeter. (No. 13 seeded La Salle (24-9) plays No. 9 Wichita State (28-8), Thursday, 10:17 p.m. (ET), at the Staples Center.) Wichita State is known more for its defense, rebounding and grit, but the Shockers hit 14 of 28 three-point attempts against Gonzaga, beating the Zags at their own game.
