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)

He has credentials David Teel Daily Press USC is not bereft of basketball tradition and potential. Five coaches have guided the Trojans to multiple NCAA tournaments, most recently Henry Bibby and Tim Floyd (three each). Bibby had USC within a game of the 2001 Final Four before losing to eventual national champion Duke. So if Andy Enfield is as good as advertised, the Trojans should be perennial contenders in the Pacific-12, which has produced all of two national champions (UCLA 1995, Arizona '97)

If I were a big-name college coach at the Final Four, the one place I would try to avoid at all costs would be my own hotel. The Hilton across the street is the coaches' hotel, and another reporter and I wandered over there yesterday morning for about two hours to check out the scene. The place is like a crowded airport, only filled with familiar faces. Here are a few sightings: Bruce Pearl - NOT wearing his usual orange, caused quite a stir around the rumor mill. Roy Williams - Breezed through but stopped to sign a few autographs.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The list includes Scott May, Steve Alford, Mike Woodson and Randy Wittman. You know them as high-scoring Indiana All-Americans. The NBA knows them as underachievers, disappointments and flat-out busts.The Washington Bullets pray Calbert Cheaney doesn't add his name to the list. Washington shocked more than a few people by investing $18 million over six years in Cheaney, its No. 1 pick. The Bullets' commitment was obvious when they sent Harvey Grant to Portland before the draft to make room for Cheaney.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Asked on the eve of the East Regional semifinal whether there was more pressure coaching a team that was heavily favored, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski answered without hesitation:"I'd rather have my team getting ready for Southwest Missouri State than Steve Alford [getting ready for Duke]," Krzyzewski said. "I'm happy with the position that I'm in."The reason the Duke coach was happy was on display last night as center Elton Brand dominated the inside, and Trajan Langdon put on a shooting exhibition as the top-seeded Blue Devils defeated No. 12 seed Southwest Missouri, 78-61, to advance to tomorrow's East Region final.
