NCAA WANTS PAPERS TO STOP RUNNING BETTING LINES

     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."  Tepps: "I would hate to be blackmailed like
that by the NCAA" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 11/3).
