Diggins shook off early foul trouble to score 24 points, and Notre Dame rallied to beat Duke, 87-76, in Norfolk, Va., on Tuesday night to earn its third consecutive trip to the Final Four. The Irish have lost in the last two national championship games. "I want to win a championship for coach [Muffet] McGraw bad," Diggins said.

  With a Final Four berth at stake and an encounter with rival Connecticut for a shot at a national title, Notre Dame could have shown up for Tuesday's Raleigh Regional final in North Carolina against Maryland tense and vulnerable. Instead, the Fighting Irish smiled and laughed in warm-ups and went out and routed the Terrapins, 80-49. Point guard Skylar Diggins, a first-team all-American, had a triple-double (22 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds), and Natalie Achonwa added 17 points for the Fighting Irish.

PHOENIX - Brittney Griner can dunk. Not only on breakaways and not those squeeze-it-over-the-rim ones that just don't look right. One-handed, two-handed, on the move, off a drop step, even on alley-oops, though she hasn't pulled that one off in a game - at least not yet. Emphatic, too, unlike any woman before her. Griner's dunking dexterity has made her a celebrity, a regular on the sports-highlight shows, and a recognizable name even...

Indiana lost to Illinois on a last-second basket Thursday but rebounded with a win at then-No. 10 Ohio State on Sunday. In a week when four of the top five teams lost, it was enough for the Hoosiers to keep the No. 1 ranking Monday in the Associated Press' top 25. This ends a stretch of five consecutive weeks with a new No. 1. Miami, which received 17 No. 1 votes, jumped from eighth to No. 3, the Hurricanes' highest-ever ranking. Michigan dropped one spot to fourth, while Gonzaga, which got the two other first-place votes, moved up one spot to fifth.

INDIANAPOLIS - Instate talent helped Notre Dame to its first NCAA women's basketball title in 2001 when senior center Ruth Riley, who was born in Kansas but grew up in Macy, Ind., led the way over favored Connecticut in the national semifinals and over Purdue in the championship game. Now a decade after the program's national title, a superstar 5-foot-9 sophomore guard from South Bend, Ind., may do likewise Tuesday night when the Irish (31-7) meet Texas A&M (32-5) at Conseco Fieldhouse in a first matchup of No. 2 seeds in the 30-year history of the championship.

AFTER ALL the media attention both locally and nationally, Mo'ne Davis isn't tired of it yet. Speaking to reporters at Lincoln Financial Field yesterday, Davis said only one thing bothered her. "The lights are pretty bright, but I don't really mind," Davis said, camera lights shining in her eyes. The latest accolade in a year full of them came last week when Sports Illustrated Kids named her its Sports Kid of the Year. And yesterday, they celebrated. Joining Davis in the SCA Club at the Linc were 150 of her Springside Chestnut Hill Academy classmates, her Taney Dragons and Anderson Monarch baseball teammates and a few celebrities - including Mayor Nutter.

BY NOW, getting crowned the Sportsperson of the Year by the Daily News is just another notch on the belt of Mo'ne Davis' baseball pants. That's just how the last 5 months have gone for the 13-year-old baseball phenom who dazzled Little Leaguers on the mound, gained local and national attention for being a girl playing with the boys and inspired many of her peers to follow in her footsteps. From the baseball diamonds in Williamsport - where she became the first girl to earn a win, throwing a shutout - her story was followed around the world.

NEWARK, N.J. - Saturday's WNBA All-Star Game was supposed to be Elena Delle Donne's coronation. She was to start. She was the first rookie to receive the most votes. The game was to be a celebration, not just for her but for a league that has had an influx of young, marketable stars this year. But she suffered a concussion on Wednesday and announced on Friday that she will not play. On Thursday, fellow rookie and projected starter Brittney Griner announced she would also miss the game, with a sprained left knee.

St. Joseph's outscored Temple by 10-2 in overtime Sunday to win, 49-41, at Hagan Arena. The Hawks snapped a 13-game losing streak against their Atlantic Ten rivals. St. Joe's led by 39-38 with less than 20 seconds to play, but the Owls' Tyonna Williams stole a pass under the Hawks' basket and was immediately fouled. She missed the second shot, however, and game went into overtime. A jumper by Victoria Macaulay gave Temple (12-13, 5-5) a 41-39 lead at the start of OT, but it was all St. Joseph's from then on as the Hawks (18-6, 9-1)
