  • NCAA SYMBOL BOWS TO DEMOGRAPHICS OF ATHLETE POPULATION

         The NCAA seal that features a caucasian male and female
    bowing as victory wreaths are being placed on their heads is
    quietly being phased out "in a gesture to minority athletes,"
    according to this morning's MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.  The
    seal, the symbol of the NCAA since '49, changed after months of
    debate among NCAA officials who concluded that "even though
    there'd been no outcry among minority student-athletes, one day
    there would be."  NCAA's Kathryn Reith:  "Certainly there are
    more than caucasians among NCAA athletes" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
    SENTINEL, 7/6).

  • SAN JOSE, PHILLY SCORE WOMEN'S HOOPS FINAL FOUR

         San Jose and Philadelphia have been recommended by the NCAA
    Women's Basketball Committee to host the '99 and 2000 Women's
    Final Fours.  Stanford will host the '99 event at the San Jose
    Arena.  Penn and St. Joseph's will co-host the 2000 Final Four at
    the CoreStates Arena (NCAA).  Atlantic Ten Commissioner Linda
    Bruno, who heads the NCAA tournament committee: "In the past, we
    worried about going to a big city in that we might get lost among
    other events.  But we saw in Atlanta in 1993 that that is no
    longer a cause for concern."  Charlotte will host next year's
    event, followed by Cincinnati in '97 and Kansas City in '98.
    Sacramento, Orlando and Atlanta were also considered for the
    events (Mel Greenberg, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 7/6).
         REGIONAL SITES:  Following are committee's recommended
    regional sites for the '98 and '99 women's tournament:  East --
    Dayton ('98), Greensboro ('99); Mideast -- Nashville ('98),
    Cincinnati ('99);  Midwest -- Lubbock ('98), Normal, IL ('99);
    West -- Oakland ('98), Los Angeles ('99) (NCAA).
