NATIONAL IN-LINE BASKETBALL LEAGUE: HOOPS ON WHEELS

     "Roller basketball -- a combination of basketball and in-
line skating -- is taking off on the East Coast," according to
the most recent issue of INSIDE SPORTS. '76 Olympic Basketball
Gold Medalist and Former Sonic Tom LaGuarde started the National
In-Line Basketball League (NIBBL) and has spent his time
regulating and promoting the "burgeoning" sport.  NIBBL branches
now exist in Baltimore, Toronto, and Washington, DC.  Leagues are
also being formed in CA, NJ, and Puerto Rico, and skaters from
Japan and France have shown interest in the new sport.  NIBBL is
scheduled to play during half-time at a number of NBA games this
season and at the NBA All-Star weekend in February (INSIDE
SPORTS, December '94).
