Less than eight years ago, Joanne Boyle was in a hospital bed in North Carolina, worried she might be "a vegetable" after a brain hemorrhage left the Duke assistant coach unable to speak or walk at 38. On Monday, she guided the California basketball team she has coached for four seasons into the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16 with a 99-73 second-round victory over Virginia at the Galen Center. "I'm so excited. I'm so proud of my team," Boyle said.

Five and a half years ago, as she lay in a North Carolina hospital bed after the most harrowing experience of her life, Joanne Boyle dared not dream of a coaching future that would include leading the California women's basketball team to national prominence this season. She thought not of the marathon she'd been training to run. Her concerns were far more immediate and fundamental. Was she going to die? If she survived, would she ever again be fully functional? She couldn't walk.

SAN JOSE -- Stanford didn't need Candice Wiggins to score big Sunday because the Cardinal defense did all that was needed in a 78-45 victory over UCLA in the Pacific 10 Conference tournament semifinals. No player for UCLA (16-15) had more than four points before halftime. The Bruins' senior leader, Lindsey Pluimer, was one for seven in the first half before finishing the game with eight points. Doreena Campbell had a team-high nine points. "Defense, that's what picked them up," Pluimer said as the Bruins shot 27% in the first half.

There was no secret about what the Fresno State women's basketball team does well. There was almost as little secret about what California was intent on shutting down. The fourth-seeded Golden Bears held a Bulldogs team that had made as many as 16 three-point baskets in a game this season to a mere four in a 70-47 first-round NCAA tournament victory Saturday at the Galen Center. The 13th-seeded Bulldogs were leading the nation in three-pointers per game, averaging 9.5.

This place again? The California women's basketball team returned to the Galen Center on Friday, not quite a week after a controversial last-second loss to USC in a semifinal of the Pacific 10 Conference tournament. "We were joking when we walked into the building like, 'Ha, this looks familiar,' " said Ashley Walker, the Golden Bears' 6-foot-1 senior forward. A week ago tonight, Cal fell to USC, 69-67, when an apparent basket by Walker on a play that began with 0.

USC and 12th-ranked California played 40 intense minutes on Saturday night at the Galen Center. But the outcome of the Pacific 10 Conference women's basketball tournament semifinal was not decided until officials met for more than 10 minutes at midcourt to review the final three-tenths of a second.

UCLA can now enjoy the rest of the Pacific 10 Conference women's basketball tournament. That dance ticket should be in the mail. An 80-63 victory over sixth-seeded California on Saturday in HP Pavilion should end any lingering doubts about the worthiness of the third-seeded Bruins for the NCAA tournament. Four Bruins finished in double figures, led by Noelle Quinn with 18 points and 10 rebounds. The Bruins (18-10) shot 53.

It took some blind faith and crossed fingers to bring the 2002 NCAA women's Final Four to the Alamodome, a structure meant to draw a football team to town. Lots of empty seats wouldn't convince the skeptics that the women's game, played by people who don't dunk and don't much want to, was worth much time or attention. For the skeptics, for the e-mailers who say it's wasted energy to watch or think or read about women's basketball, who say eighth-grade boys play a more interesting game, who babble that no one would choose to be in San Antone when they could be in Atlanta, here are your answers.
