When they threw a party Jan. 29 at Loyola College to celebrate what turned out to be the team's lone victory in a dismal 1-27 season, coach Scott Hicks probably understood that his days were numbered as basketball coach. Greyhounds athletic director Joe Boylan made Hicks' departure official yesterday, announcing that his contract would not be renewed after his bleak 16-97 record over four seasons. Boylan made the expected announcement after meeting with the coaches and players yesterday morning and described the entire team as "beaten down" by the 31-game losing streak over two seasons.

By the end of two hours that feel more like three, filmgoers may come up with a new name for the calcified un-film they've just seen: "Snow Falling on Cedarzzzzzz." The armature around which "Snow Falling on Cedars" turns -- very, very slowly -- is the mysterious death of a fisherman off San Piedro Island, north of Puget Sound. It's the early 1950s, when memories of World War II are still fresh in Americans' minds, so it's no surprise that the police pick up Kazuo Miyanmoto, one of the many Americans of Japanese descent who live on the island, for murder.

IN THE END, with the 31-game Division I losing streak over, the Loyola men's basketball team did its best and fitting impression of an NCAA Final Four champion. And a mob of college kids rushed onto the court at Reitz Arena to join the players in unabashed celebration. In the dead of winter, the light of a new day had dawned. "For me, I'm officially out of hell," said Loyola coach Scott Hicks. His young team, which has played too many games this injury-marred season with seven or eight players, is now 1-18.

"Out of Tune: David Helfgott and the Myth of Shine," by Margaret Helfgott with Tom Gross. Warner Books. 294 pages. $24.All that shines is not gold, and the movie "Shine" is composed of far baser elements: lies and greed. This is Margaret Helfgott's claim in "Out of Tune: David Helfgott and the Myth of Shine" (Warner Books, 1998, with Tom Gross), and she makes a good case for it."Shine" is the 1996 blockbuster film about Margaret's younger brother David, a young pianist headed for greatness but derailed by the mental illness "caused" by his tyrannical father, himself scarred by the Holocaust.

One should have reservations about No Reservations, a romantic comedy that does precious little with the considerable resources at its disposal. Those resources include a pair of actresses - the formidable Catherine Zeta-Jones, lovely and commanding as ever, and the effortlessly charming Abigail Breslin, fresh off last year's Oscar nomination for Little Miss Sunshine - who alone should make any movie worth the price of admission. That they don't isn't so much their fault as it is the people behind the camera, who are far too happy to follow well-trod cinematic paths when they could at least stretch the genre's boundaries.
