WOMEN'S HOOPS TOPS BASEBALL IN ARIZONA SURVEY

          A survey conducted by the Behavior Research Center of
     AZ revealed that women's basketball is the third most
     popular sport in AZ, "well ahead of baseball," according to
     Jeff Metcalfe of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC.  The survey asked 711
     AZ residents to name their two favorite sports to watch. 
     Football was first, 54% named pro, 52% college, followed by
     men's basketball, 38% pro, 47% college.  Women's basketball
     received 37% and MLB drew 19%, two points higher than
     pro/college volleyball and four points above figure skating,
     gymnastics and track (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 2/14).
          DON'T CALL ME DAUGHTER: The WNBA's Phoenix companion to
     the Suns is called the Phoenix Mercury (ARIZONA REPUBLIC,
     2/14). In Sacramento, the WNBA team is the Monarchs (Kings).
