Published November 3, 1994
The NCAA may prohibit newspapers that publish college sports betting lines from covering the basketball Final Four. The idea will be discussed at the NCAA Div. I Men's Basketball Committee meetings this month in New York. SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS Executive Sports Editor David Tepps says the betting lines "are more than merely gambling information; they give the fan an idea of how teams match up."
