They had a lot of reasons to know they were coming back, but the loudest and best was right in front of the Kentucky Wildcats, yelling, cajoling, imploring . . . Shepparding them to a national title. No team had come back from more than an eight-point halftime deficit, and Kentucky was down by 10 to the undeniable, unquenchable Utah Utes. But Jeff Sheppard was not listening to history. Kentucky was listening to him. "Shep was telling us, he kept telling us: 'They're getting tired!

By a tip, a whistle and a push from the fickle finger of destiny, Kentucky straggled a step closer to a national title here Saturday. And Stanford, which ran with the Wildcats from wire-to-wire and beyond, was left with a milestone victory dribbling from its hands, feeling alternately proud of the fervor of the fight and drained by its end result.

Samaki Walker blocked Kentucky's quest for a fifth consecutive victory over Louisville. The freshman center set a school record with 11 blocked shots, scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Louisville defeated the fifth-ranked Wildcats, 88-86, before 19,841 in Freedom Hall on Sunday. Walker capped his day with three blocks in the last 66 seconds, denying Kentucky (6-2) the basket it needed to draw even with the Cardinals (7-3). "I had no idea I had that many blocks," Walker said.

Director Joseph L. Megel and lighting designer Kathi O'Donohue cast a spell in the first moments of Jeff Sheppard's "2000 Fish," the second half of a disparate one-act collection at the Powerhouse titled, "Raise The Wind." Darlos (Brigitte Kempt), journeying to her childhood home, stands still in a downstage corner while her Angel (Christi Taylor-Jones) gives her courage from the windy, upstage atmosphere.

UTAH THE STARTERS 34: Drew Hansen 24: Andre Miller 13: Hanno Mottola 51: Michael Doleac 50: Alex Jensen * About Utah: The Utes can now be called the surprise team of the tournament. Sure, they were seeded No. 3 in the West Regional and ranked seventh in the country, but they have upset perhaps two of the three most talented teams in the country. They will meet the third tonight in Kentucky, a team that has knocked them out of the tournament the last two years and three out of the last five.

Maybe Cleveland fans should cheer for Allen Iverson the next time he visits. Booing him isn't working. Iverson, who set the Gund Arena scoring record with 50 last season, once again burned the Cavaliers on Monday night, scoring 24 of his 37 points in the second half as the Philadelphia 76ers ended a four-game losing streak with a 106-97 victory. "I don't even let my mom come here," he said. "They're the toughest here by far. I hear them, 'Jail-bird this, jail-bird that. Thug this, thug that.'

Kentucky senior swingman Allen Edwards did not jump for joy or scream or fall to the floor in celebration after the Wildcats wrapped up the national title on Monday. Instead, he stood quietly, staring into space, and this was not precisely happiness he was experiencing. Edwards' mother, Laura Mae Edwards, died of breast cancer late last month, as Kentucky started its run toward its second national championship in three seasons.

Brevin Knight scored 26 points and Dion Cross had 19 as unranked Stanford remained unbeaten by defeating 19th-ranked Wisconsin, 95-78, Tuesday night at Palo Alto. Stanford (8-0) made 33 of 42 shots; Wisconsin made 14 of 21. The Cardinal also outshot Wisconsin (6-2) from the field, 52% to 46%. The Cardinal backcourt of Knight and Cross did most of the damage. They were constantly on the move, often penetrating Wisconsin's defense for layups. Knight also had nine assists.
