Jennifer Azzi played in her first regular-season game for Utah after suffering a broken hand during an exhibition game, but the Starzz lost to the Detroit Shock, 73-69, Friday night before 7,649 at Salt Lake City. Edwina Brown made four free throws in the final 14 seconds for the Shock. Astou Ndiaye-Diatta led the Shock with 18 points, and Oksana Zakauluzhnaya added 15 on six-for-nine shooting. "I can't stand to lose, so that's the hard part," Azzi said. "But it felt good to be out on the court."

How badly did Tara VanDerveer of Stanford want to turn the struggling Cardinal around when she took over as coach five years ago? "Honestly, if the Devil had come into my room then and said, 'In five years you're going to win the national championship,' I would have given my soul for that," VanDerveer acknowledged recently.

Virginia did its best to slam it shut, but the cover of what people here are calling a storybook season for Jennifer Azzi and the Stanford Cardinal won't be closed until Sunday.
