Although the first voting for presidential delegates is still four days off in Iowa, the political crystal-ball gazers are already speculating which Republican candidates will survive and which will fall off the cliff into oblivion. It's being said that if Mitt Romney wins in a state in which he only began to campaign in earnest in recent days, and then goes on a week later to repeat the feat in the New Hampshire primary, the ballgame will be over. If, on the other hand, Mr. Romney falls short in Iowa, it will be said that victory in New Hampshire will be vital to his hopes, and the other Republican candidates may live to fight another day. In 1980, Ronald Reagan was expected to sweep through Iowa, but he showed up only on the weekend before the state's precinct caucuses and got bloodied by the hard-working team of George H.W. Bush.

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Earlier this month, Steve Alford's team used an upset of preseason No. 1 Connecticut to race into the consciousness of the college basketball-watching public.Now, three weeks into his first season at the helm of Iowa's men's basketball team, the 34-year-old coach must wait for such a performance to become the norm.At this point, it appears to be a fluke. Even Alford expects the program's rise to be a lengthy process, and its next step will come tonight as the Hawkeyes (2-2)

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- After getting blown out by Duke in the second round of last year's NCAA tournament, the Iowa Hawkeyes had promised to make a better showing. But playing in a hostile environment that was virtually a Duke home game, Iowa fell apart.Two days after scoring 98 points and shooting 71.4 percent in a half, the Hawkeyes could barely find the basket against a suffocating Duke defense in yesterday's 75-62 loss before a sellout crowd at the Greensboro Coliseum.Duke (30-2) built leads of as many as 26 points in the first half and regrouped after an Iowa rally cut the deficit to eight in the second half.

Mount St. Mary's has made huge strides on the basketball court in the past decade. Under 13-year coach Bill Sheahan, the Mountaineers have gone from a Division II women's powerhouse to a respected Division I program that produces an average of 23 victories.Tonight, the Mountaineers take their first walk into the big time -- the Midwest Regional in the expanded, 64-team NCAA women's tournament. And when the visiting, 14th-seeded Mountaineers line up against third-seeded Iowa, they will face quite an initiation.

Washington.--If you crave relief from the tedium of 1992, spend a few hours in 1757. The new movie made of James Fenimore Cooper's ''The Last of the Mohicans'' is not restful, but it is a bracing immersion in some great American themes, and in the company of a mythic figure who flits soundlessly across the forest floor of our national dreams.The movie made from Cooper's remarkably cinematic novel (it is all pursuit and rescue, with the rustle of gingham skirts in the wilderness) illuminates today's politics.

POINT OF IMPACT. By Stephen Hunter. Bantam Books. 451 pages. $22.IF Stephen Hunter's fifth novel, "Point of Impact," were found in a time capsule by a future anthropologist, what would the book reveal about popular culture of the 1990s?The first observation might be that the '90s were violent times. This book is first and foremost about Guns with a capital G, and that rhymes with D, and that stands for Dead.Get out your guns & ammo dictionary; you'll need it to decipher the bullet/gun lingo that weaves through every page.

In July 1974, I went to the small town of Pekin, Ill., with a group of Chinese-Americans from Chicago who were offended by the name of Pekin's high school football team.Pekin, named for the Chinese city of Peking, called its team the "Chinks."The students at Pekin High told the visitors that they loved their Chinks and that to them it was a name of honor and respect and no harm was intended.The Chinese-Americans argued that regardless of how it was intended, the name was degrading and racist and should be changed.
