SPURS LOOK AT IHL TEAM AS ICING ON THE ALAMODOME CAKE

     An official for the Spurs "confirmed that the organization
is exploring the idea of securing" an IHL franchise to play at
the Alamodome, according to this morning's SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-
NEWS.  Spurs VP of Business Operations Russ Bookbinder said the
team has looked "at all different opportunities."  Bookbinder:
"We looked at the CFL.  We looked at IHL hockey.  But there
really is nothing imminent."  IHL VP/Communications Tim Bryant
said a San Antonio group has expressed an interest in joining the
league, but he didn't know if the city would be added to the
league's expansion list for '95-96.  San Francisco and Orlando
have already been announced as new franchises for '95-96 (Briggs
& Griffin, SAN ANTONIO NEWS-EXPRESS, 2/15).
