There it was, shots on television of Colorado State guard Becky Hammon making shots from all over the court. Jubilant Cal State Northridge players couldn't resist firing back. "You're all over her, Eddie," one shouted. Edniesha Curry, the Matadors' All-Big Sky Conference guard, smiled and nodded her head. After all the shots Northridge took this season, even ones from an All-American candidate such as Hammon seem manageable. The Matadors (21-7), seeded No.

UCLA appears to have been presented with a relatively unobstructed home-court route to the NCAA women's basketball round of 16. The good news for the Bruins (23-7) came Sunday, one day after they clinched a share of the Pacific 10 championship along with Oregon. Now, in addition to its No. 3 seeding in the NCAA West Regional, UCLA gained the right to host its first two tournament games at Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins will open against Wisconsin Green Bay (19-9) Saturday night at 9 at Pauley.

With a 78-20 record in three years as coach, Brian Taylor of Harvard-Westlake High has established the Wolverines' girls' basketball program as one of the best in the region. Their 47-42 loss to Lafayette Acalanes Saturday in the state Division III final won't take away from how quickly the Wolverines have soared under Taylor, a former American Basketball Assn. player and teammate of Julius Erving. The future looks bright.

UCLA's women's basketball tries tonight to travel further into the postseason than any Bruin team since Ann Meyers led UCLA to one national championship and two Final Fours in the late 1970s. The Bruins (24-7) meet Kentucky (21-10) at Pauley Pavilion in a second-round NCAA tournament game, with the winner advancing to the West Regional semifinals March 20 at the Sports Arena. Tonight, the Bruins' second consecutive 9 p.m. start means another late-nighter at the Keyport, N.J.

With her team dangerously close to being eliminated at home in the second round, Connecticut freshman Tamika Williams pulled down her two biggest boards of the season and then coolly hit a pair of free throws to keep the No. 1-seeded Huskies in the NCAA tournament. The freshman's foul shots came with seven seconds left and lifted Connecticut to an 86-84 Mideast Regional victory over Xavier at Storrs, Conn. "I just tried to stay settled in the huddle," said Williams, who finished with 19 points.

It has brought us Jackie Stiles, a female version of Pete Maravich, and Tennessee losing in the Sweet 16. It has introduced us to Diana Taurasi and taught us that even Connecticut can't stockpile enough players to defend its national title. The NCAA women's basketball Final Four, sandwiched as it is between the men's, seemingly nothing more than off-day TV programming, something for basketball fans to watch while the men practice, is worth watching. Really. This isn't just for women.

Irvine or Woodbridge? League play begins this week and next for teams in Orange County, and the two Sea View League girls' basketball teams will be meeting under different circumstances when they try to decide this year's league champion, making theirs one of the more intriguing races to watch. They shared the league title last year, Woodbridge winning the last game of the season, leaving most of the Vaqueros in tears. It was another heartache in Irvine's quest for credibility.
