  • HOPE FOR ALL THE SMALL CITIES WHO NEVER GOT THE CHANCE

              The International Basketball Federation (FIBA)
         announced Sunday that Indianapolis has been awarded the 2002
         FIBA World Championships for Men (USA Basketball).  In
         Indianapolis, Bill Benner reports that the event was awarded
         to the city over Tokyo and a "consortium of German cities,
         including Berlin."  Indianapolis Mayor Stephen Goldsmith
         called the announcement a "great victory" for his city and
         promised "a spectacular event," which will hope to draw 50-
         75,000 visitors and have an "estimated economic impact
         exceeding $50 million" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 12/1).
