Penn State's ability to keep its NCAA Women's Final Four hopes alive will depend upon whether it handles tournament rookie Seton Hall tomorrow night in a Midwest Regional semifinal game at the University of Texas. A victory would send the second-ranked Nittany Lions to a regional title game for just the second time. The last time State advanced that far was in 1983, when it lost to Old Dominion, 74-60, at home. Top-seeded Penn State (29-2) is obviously the team to beat in this region, although defending NCAA champion Texas Tech (28-4)

Michigan, the team that lost its coach but found itself, concluded one of the most unusual runs in NCAA history last night with a national championship. Rumeal Robinson sank two pressurized free throws with three seconds left to give the Wolverines an 80-79 overtime win over Seton Hall. The overtime was the first in an NCAA final since 1963, and it produced the Wolverines' first NCAA college basketball title. The championship game was the fifth to go into overtime and the first since Loyola, Ill., beat Cincinnati, 60-58, in 1963.

P. J. Carlesimo, the garrulous coach of Seton Hall, could see the best, and worst, of times and detail them in one, long breath. "I don't think we're a lock for the NCAA tournament - not by any means," Carlesimo said. "We could lose our last three games and who knows? But if we win the last three, win one or two in the (Big East) tournament, then I'm telling the kids, 'Hey, we could get a No. 3 or No. 4 seed in a regional.' Maybe that's a long shot, but that's what I'm telling the kids.

They are perhaps the best team in the Big East. Undoubtedly, they are the most exasperating. Every game for Syracuse's Orangemen is an amusement-park ride. Free throws roller-coaster around the rim and out. Coach Jim Boeheim is a human ferris wheel. Up, down, up, down. Screaming, whining, trying to get his team under control. At the end, invariably, Boeheim walks away, drained, his tie at half- mast as if he had taken an involuntary ride on the Wild Mouse. Yesterday, in a 68-63 victory in the Big East semifinals, Syracuse took a 2-0 lead over Seton Hall and didn't move ahead again for 35 minutes.

NEW YORK - OK, so who saw this one coming? Third-ranked Villanova, which set a program record for regular-season wins and was your top seed in the Big East Tournament for the first time since Jay Wright was finishing his third season as Hofstra's coach, drew Seton Hall yesterday afternoon in the first of four quarterfinals. The same Seton Hall the Wildcats have owned forever. And the same Seton Hall that had barely beaten Butler the night before. Apparently, none of that mattered.

NOTHING LIKE a huge embarrassment to fire up a team. Nearly a week after getting blown out by No. 1 Syracuse, Jordan Theodore scored all 19 of his points in the second half, and Seton Hall ended almost 11 years of frustration by stunning No. 8 Connecticut, 75-63, last night in coach Kevin Willard's biggest win since taking over the program last season. Herb Pope added 15 points, and Fuquan Edwin and Aaron Cosby had 12 apiece as the Pirates (13-2, 2-1 Big East) beat Connecticut (12-2, 2-1)

Kamile Nacickaite scored a game-high 25 points but Drexel suffered a 77-64 loss to Seton Hall in a nonleague women's basketball game from Walsh Gymnasium in South Orange, N.J., last night. Hollie Mershon added 17 for the Dragons (4-3), who shot only 6-for-15 from the arc and trailed by 16 at the half. Jasmine Crew helped Seton Hall (6-5) snap a three-game losing streak with a team-high 22-point effort.

Jo Ann Flanagan, a three-year starter for a Nazareth girls' soccer team that won four straight Catholic Academies League championships, has signed a letter of intent to play collegiately at Seton Hall. With the Pirates, Flanagan will become part of a budding Philadelphia connection. Seton Hall is coached by Cardinal Dougherty graduate Betty Ann Kempf; another former Nazareth standout, Brigid Sullivan, recently completed her freshman season. Flanagan, a 5-foot-7 fullback, said she selected Seton Hall over Rider, Duquesne, La Salle and Loyola, Md. The Pirates posted one of the biggest upsets of the 1998 season when they defeated national power Notre Dame, 3-2, in overtime.

The coach has changed, but John Allen's plans have not. The Coatesville High basketball standout still is headed to Seton Hall. Allen and his parents met with new Pirates head coach Louis Orr last week, and Allen came away satisfied with his November decision to sign a national letter of intent with Seton Hall. "We never said we wouldn't go to Seton Hall," Allen's father, John Munson, said. "We just wanted to explore our options. " Allen signed the letter of intent when Tommy Amaker was the Pirates coach, but Amaker took the head coaching job at Michigan on March 28. Orr was named Pirates head coach on April 4, and Allen wondered about his role in a new-look Seton Hall program.

Seton Hall didn't even clinch a berth in the Big East Tournament until its final game of the regular season. The Pirates started their postseason yesterday with a 78-66 victory over St. John's. The Pirates (15-13), who have won two straight after losing eight of nine, will play 18th-ranked and second-seeded Georgetown in today's quarterfinals. "I thought it was a great win for our program," Seton Hall coach Tommy Amaker said. Freshman forward Eddie Griffin, of Roman Catholic High, scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half and also had 12 rebounds and five blocked shots to lead Seton Hall.

HOUSTON - It has been Jay Wright's customary answer every year when Villanova is about to embark on a new season and he is asked about the team's goals. You will never hear him say what you anticipate a coach in his position would say: a Big Five championship, the Big East regular-season title, the conference championship, a deep run in the NCAA tournament. Instead, his stock saying is, "We want to be the best team we can be by the end of the season. " The success of the 2015-16 Villanova season has been a lot easier to measure.

MIKAL BRIDGES averaged 18 points and seven rebounds two years ago as a senior at Great Valley High, where he was a first-team Class AAAA all-stater. So the last thing he wanted to do was sit out his first season at Villanova, just because. "It was hard," he said. "You play your whole life. I never knew what it felt like not to play. "You know you want to be out there with your brothers. It hurt. " But that's what happened for, as it turned out, all the right reasons. "(The coaches)

NEW YORK - The Big East tournament title game proved to be a series of momentum swings in a spellbinding second half that had the Madison Square Garden sellout crowd of 19,812 on its feet for the final minutes wondering if Villanova could repeat as champion, or if Seton Hall would pull off the upset. But it was the Pirates, a contingent of mostly sophomores who have steadily improved throughout the season, who made the big plays Saturday night at crunch time. The biggest came from Isaiah Whitehead, who converted a three-point play with 18.5 seconds remaining that propelled the Hall to a 69-67 victory over the third-ranked Wildcats.

NEW YORK - College basketball's postseason couldn't start at a better place for Villanova, with the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden, where the Wildcats can generate some momentum for a long run in the NCAA tournament. It looked like it would happen last year when the Cats knocked off Marquette, Providence and Xavier to win their first Big East tournament title since 1995 and assure themselves a No. 1 NCAA seed. Of course, everyone remembers what happened the following weekend when 'Nova was unceremoniously sent home from March Madness after just two games.
