A little faith and reassurance were all Rachel Hemmer needed. Stanford's coaches and players knew it. And they had plenty of faith in her. They told Hemmer so after her poor performance during Saturday's semifinal against Virginia, and the freshman forward responded Sunday, leading the Cardinal to a 78-62 victory over Western Kentucky and its second national championship in three years. Hemmer, a 6-foot-3 forward, scored a game-high 18 points and had 15 rebounds.

Stanford, ranked third in the nation, beat 12th-ranked Texas Tech, 75-63, Thursday night in the semifinals of the women's West Regional. The Cardinal (27-3), seeded first in the West, led, 35-21, at the half. Texas Tech (27-5) made a brief run to start the second half, cutting Stanford's lead to six points. But Cardinal point guard Molly Goodenbour made a three-point shot to make it 38-29, and the Red Raiders never posed a threat after that.

UCLA made a valiant run at Stanford's 25-game home-court winning streak but was overcome in the stretch by a barrage of three-point baskets and lost to the Cardinal, 79-70, Thursday night before 3,292 in Maples Pavilion. The Bruins led for most of the game and had a seven-point lead with 11:49 to play. But Stanford's MVP from its 1992 national championship team, Molly Goodenbour, made four three-pointers in a six-minute stretch in the final minutes. The No.

This much is sure about Stanford women's basketball Coach Tara VanDerveer: she shoots straight from the hip. After Purdue defeated Stanford, 82-65, Saturday night in Maples Pavilion in the NCAA West Region final to advance to the NCAA final four, VanDerveer sized up the four teams. "I think Purdue can play with anyone, and I think North Carolina is in trouble," VanDerveer said. "I predict it will be Louisiana Tech and Purdue for the championship. Flip a coin for that one."

Three of the teams in tonight's semifinals in the NCAA West Regional women's basketball tournament at Stanford's Maples Pavilion were expected to get this far. One was not. Texas A&M (23-7), seeded 13th, will play top-seeded Purdue (27-4) in the opener at 6. Texas A&M is the lowest-seeded team remaining in the tournament, the next being Alabama, which is sixth in the Midwest.

Will the Stanford women's basketball team really have an advantage playing on its home court in the NCAA West Regional final against Purdue tonight at 9? The answer depends on who is asked. "The crowd can't score for you and it can't play defense for you," said Rachel Hemmer, Stanford's 6-foot-3 junior forward. Hemmer's view is supported by Tara VanDerveer, Stanford's coach, who has maintained throughout the tournament that there is nothing magic about Maples Pavilion.

The USC and UCLA women's basketball teams begin Pacific 10 Conference competition tonight in the Northwest. USC (7-1) opens at Oregon State (8-2), and UCLA (5-4) plays at Oregon (6-3). The Trojans and Bruins switch opponents Saturday. USC had won six consecutive games before losing to No. 2-ranked Iowa last Thursday, 50-49, on a disputed, last-second three-point shot after leading most of the game. UCLA's best outing was an 88-78 overtime victory over Rutgers on Monday.

UCLA's women's basketball team overcame a rash of late turnovers and upset 10th-ranked Stanford on Friday night, 80-73, at Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins held Stanford to single digits for the first 11 minutes, maintained large leads for most of the second half, then stumbled home to victory in a whirlwind of turnovers and free throws. The victory, before 1,283, boosted the Bruins to 9-7 overall, 4-3 in the Pacific 10 Conference. Stanford dropped to 11-4 and 4-2.

There is bad news and even worse news for future opponents of the Stanford women's NCAA championship basketball team. Only one member of the team that beat Western Kentucky, 78-62, at the Sports Arena on Sunday graduates. She is Ann Adkins, a reserve who played in the final 20 seconds of the game. The even worse news is the team has five promising freshmen, the most noteworthy being 6-foot-3 Rachel Hemmer of Austin, Tex. She scored 18 points and had 15 rebounds during the title game.
