HELLCAT HATH NO FURY, BUT CBA TEAM MAY HAVE INVESTORS

     CBA Commissioner Tom Valdiserri said yesterday he has spoken
with "three substantial groups" that may invest in or buy the
financially troubled Hartford Hellcats.  Hartford Sports &
Entertainment Group, which owns the team, defaulted on a $1.25M
loan on December 14, and lost $590,368 in '93 --their first year
with the team.  Valdiserri would not comment on whether the
bidders would move the team, but stressed that the league's "sole
objective" is to keep the team in Hartford.  He also said that
the other 15 owners in the league have offered to "help the
Hartford group find an investor or assist the group in operating
the Hellcats" (Roy Hasty, HARTFORD COURANT, 1/6).
