She can run right by you, so don't even think about diving for that ball - Jackson will already be halfway down the court with it by then. With five starters averaging in double figures scoring and 5 almost 30 minutes each, there isn't much need for point production off the bench. But Jamie Scheppman manages to average 18 minutes and 5.1 points. Two words: No Holdsclaw. This team is small and very, 2 very quick with a balanced scoring attack. But it does not have the best player in basketball, one who can take over a game. Achilles' MONTREAL CANADIENS home, and go work in the garden planting flowers till midnight.

Se meka Randall stretched out her hands. ; - 'I have no cold," she said. examining her naked fingers Sat urday at Kemper Arena. No gold I want them. Gold, with diamonds to show we won." ' Randall, a freshman from Ten nessee, was talking about rings, more specifically, championship rings, bveryone else on her team has at least one, except for her classmates. All Tennessee has to do to get this woman some jewelry is defeat Louisiana Tech in tonight's wom-' en's NCAA Division I national ' championship game. A victory would give the Vols an unprecedented third consecutive title and six overall. "It would be amazing," Tennessee coach Pat Summitt said. .: That's a good word to describe 1 the Vols this season. They are 38- 0 and would become the first team 1 to go undefeated since Connecticut in 1995. Summitt's first national championship was in 1987, when Tennessee defeated (guess who?) . Louisiana Tech. They are the only two teams to have made the ( NCAA Tournament all 17 seasons. This season, the Vols opened j.with a 75-61 victory against the Techsters. "They lost 10 games last year, and who cares now?" Tech guard Tamisha Jackson said of Tennessee. "We're where we want to be. We have to show what we've learned." ! Jackson has a point. Three of those losses were to her school. But the question remains as to how it can do what no one else has done this season: Beat Tennessee, see. ,t The Vols looked human in their Regional Championship when they had to come back from , 12 down and just over seven minutes left to play against North Carolina. Their full-court press wasn't as effective as usual, but against that defense in the semifinals Friday, Arkansas didn't have a chance. "I'm not going to say anybody's unbeatable," Arkansas point guard Christy Smith said. "I'm not going to say the Titanic can't sink." True. We've all seen the movie. Summitt made sure her freshman saw another movie, the HBO documentary filmed on the team last season. She particularly wanted them to watch the scenes of the team crying after losses, especially after Old Dominion when All-America Chamique Holdsclaw's sobs echoed off the locker-room walls. ,; Randall watched. The first time, it bothered her. The second time, she thought it was kind of funny. But she definitely got the ffiessage, that it was a situation she didn't want to be a part of. ' What really got her attention lately were game films. "I realize I have to be a leader every night," Randall said. "It's been tough taking this role. Every night I have to be sky-high. But it's something you don't want to back down from if you're a competitor." Louisiana Tech is no pushover. The Techsters are one of the quickest teams in the country, and like to run, just like Tennessee. The Vols are a bit bigger in the back court, the Techsters have a better inside game. Rebounds, turnovers, points in transition fundamentals will be the key to this matchup. History and tradition won't be Providence's Palm Beat k Post Wire Services CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Pete Gillen has left Providence to sign a seven-year deal to become Virginia's new basketball coach. V i r rr i n i a I i Athletic Direc- tf J Tattv Hol land confirmed Gillen's selection Friday night from San Antonio, where he is attending this weekend's NCAA Final Four. I lolland Gillen would not divulge financial terms of the contract but it is expected that Gillen's total compensation package will exceed $500,000 a year. Gillen replaces Jeff Jones, who resigned March 15 after eight seasons. An official news conference will be Thursday. g Women ?- i rv" a Tradition -4 Don't have a dominating center, and a team that does can cause big problems. The Vols get by because they're so good in transition, but a team with a good inside-outside combination will offer trouble. 7 No Limit Soldier.

It's apparently what all the kids are lis 7 tening to, as guard Monica Maxwell says the team even calls itself the "no limit" team. Rally They can easily wear out any opponent that tries to keep up 9 with their speed, which leads to lazy passes and easy transition baskets. Go Tech Go! doesn't have quite the oomph of a good ole 7 chorus of Rocky Top. Maybe that's a good thing. They're fast and fun to watch. Problem is, sometimes the 8 guards can be a little out of control and throw up some pretty crazy shots. If they go in, they'll stay with the Vols, because it will open up the middle for Alisa Burris and Amanda Wilson. If not, it will be a long, long night. 64 Final the deciding factor. "I told (my team) it doesn't matter if our staff ever wins another championship," Summitt said. Gillen accepts Notebook "Pete has a lot of things we liked and a lot of things we needed," Holland said. "Maturity, a strong track record, he has won at two schools (Xavier and Providence). I le has taken both schools to the Final Eight. Those are all good measures of a coach." "He has an upbeat style, a little sizzle," Holland said. "He's naturally funny, and he can coach. He's good fit for the University of Virginia." Gillen takes over a Virginia team that was 11-19 this year, the worst record in more than three decades, and loses its top two scorers Norman Nolan and Curtis Staples.
