Marcus Fizer brings college basketball's most-coveted all-around game to Detroit tomorrow, as well as some unwanted memories. The nation's top player may list his hometown as Arcadia, La., but the Iowa State superstar grew up on the tough streets of the Motor City. He saw violence, crime and a way out. Fizer chose to attend high school in Louisiana at 14 and live with his mother's first cousin, despite realizing his single mother would not follow. He still went on his own path, his own life.

The traditionalists will be rooting for North Carolina and UCLA, two of the most storied programs in college basketball history. The front-runners will be cheering for Duke and Michigan State, the only top seeds left in this year's NCAA tournament. Here's something to ponder: What if Gonzaga, Iowa State, Tulsa and Seton Hall make it to next month's Final Four in Indianapolis? There will be plenty of tickets available at the RCA Dome. There will be plenty of office pools without any teams left.

MINNEAPOLIS -- A lady approached Iowa State's Marcus Fizer before yesterday's game after recognizing him from last week's Sports Illustrated cover. "So you're what all the fuss is about," she said. Fizer grinned and answered, "Just watch the game later." Iowa State's supporting cast backed Fizer's claim by assuming the lead roles yesterday during a slow start by its first-team All-American as the Cyclones stormed past seventh-seeded Auburn, 79-60, at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. No. 2 Iowa State (31-4)

MINNEAPOLIS -- Auburn may have lost its leading scorer, but the seventh-seeded Tigers have not lost their swagger. They seemed overly relaxed a day before facing No. 2 Iowa State (30-4) at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. They played "hangman" on the locker-room chalkboard, and one of the answers read: "Final Four." Yet no one was laughing. "I really feel like we're the No. 1 seed," forward Mack McGadney said. "It's just unfortunate that the NCAA didn't pick us as the No. 1 seed. I think it would be an upset if Iowa State beats us."

The glass sneakers, uh, slippers are collecting dust. The fairy godmother, in the form of the NCAA men's tournament selection committee, has done its best to let this year's Cinderellas take their shots. Continuing on this theme, let the Big Dance begin. When this year's tournament opens for 32 teams at four subregional sites tomorrow, and the other 32 at four other locations on Friday, more than a few will be thinking they have a chance to make it all the way to Indianapolis for next month's Final Four.

Midway through the conference seasons and what do we have? A muddle? Maybe. Confusion? Could be. A free-for-all? Finally. What a difference a year makes. No heavyweight contender inspiring bracket-ducking (though look how things turned out for Duke). Cincinnati has dominated the rankings, sure, but the pessimism of coach Bob Huggins (who faults the Bearcats for inconsistency on defense and inexperience in the backcourt) finds its reflection in the widely held notion that Cincy can be had. By whom is another question.
