NON-WAC CITY LAS VEGAS GETS BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT

     Las Vegas was chosen to be the site of the first two post-
season basketball tournaments of the expanded 16-team WAC, league
officials announced Monday.  The deal is for two years with an
option for a third.  Las Vegas, which guaranteed the conference
$1M per tournament, beat out Dallas, Denver and Albuquerque.  WAC
Commissioner Karl Benson: "The guarantee eliminates the question
of whether the event will be financially successful."  The events
will be held at the 18,500-seat Thomas & Mack Center (Steve
Davis, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/2).
