TEN CITIES SELECTED AS FINALISTS FOR NCAA'S HOME

     The NCAA has named 10 metropolitan areas as finalists for
its national offices, which are currently located in Overland
Park, KS.  Cities to make the final cut include:  Atlanta,
Charlotte, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis,
Kansas City, Orlando, Phoenix and San Antonio.  Each community
has until November 7 to fill out a request for proposal
addressing "key criteria" posed by a group appointed by the NCAA
Executive Committee.  NCAA Exec Dir Cedric Dempsey said the
committee will focus on:  office space, meeting and conference
facilities, opportunities to showcase the Hall of Champions, and
ability to host selected championships.  A final decision comes
in Spring '97.  The NCAA's lease on its current site expires in
2000 and notice must be given by November '98 of intention to
move (NCAA).
