"Sure we thought we could win it all," Burnett said after an 84-72 loss to Western Kentucky in the opening game of the semifinal round of the Women's Final Four.

Steve Alford walked the Southwest Missouri State sideline with such perfect composure and self-assurance Sunday, you almost forgot it seems like yesterday he was playing for Indiana. Then Allen Phillips found Ron Bruton with an alley-oop pass, Southwest Missouri State suddenly led by 23 points, Tennessee called timeout, and Alford crashed into Phillips on the court with a chest-bump. A chest-bump? "I was shocked to hear more coaches don't chest-bump," Alford said.

* Arizona vs. Jackson State: Arizona's star center, Loren Woods, is out, and his backup, Justin Wessel, has a sprained ankle.
