NCAA NARROWS SEARCH FOR NEW HOME TO INDY AND KANSAS CITY

          The NCAA has narrowed its search for a new home to
     Indianapolis and Kansas City, according to Kathleen Johnston
     of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS.  The NCAA eliminated Denver
     and the Dallas-Ft. Worth area from contention.  The STAR-
     NEWS' Johnston notes Indianapolis' $50M incentive package
     "might have been the real show-stealer for the NCAA group of
     college presidents and athletic administrators deciding on
     the move."  Lilly Endowment, the Indianapolis-based
     philanthropic organization, has said it would provide a $10M
     grant to the project if the private sector here raises $15M. 
     (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 4/8).  A final decision on the site
     is expected in May or early June (K.C. STAR, 4/9).
