LAS VEGAS - After her San Francisco women's team earned a spot in Monday's semifinals with a 74-64 upset of No. 3 Pacific in Thursday's quarterfinals, we lobbed a few questions to Dons coach Jennifer Azzi. Five, in fact.

Q: So Jennifer, are you going to reward your team with some time off before the semis? Maybe a trip to a fancy day spa? Houseboat cruise on Lake Mead? Go-kart racing? Paintball?

A: We'll use the time to our advantage. They know me. I don't take them on tours. We'll be in the gym. There's a bag meal I owe them. (See main story.)

Q: Come on, aren't you a little tempted to pool all your travel money and go all-in with your favorite number on the roulette wheel?

A: We will not be gambling.

Q: What told you your team was ready to do something like this?

A: They had a look in their eye that said 'We are going to win this game.' They've continued to improve throughout the season. This was a huge team win.

Q: You used a zone defense much of the time. Was that to force Pacific to shoot long jumpers?

A: They're a 3-point shooting team. That's what they do. You've got to give up something. Pacific is an unbelievable team. They're a program we aspire to be like.''

Q: What are you feeling now on the dais after this big victory?

A: I am really, really proud of the team. Very, very proud of our team.
