WOMEN'S HOCKEY TEAM EARLY FAVORITE FOR THE WHEATIES COVER?

          General Mills officials said that the gold medal-
     winning U.S. women's hockey team "appears to be the leading
     candidate to adorn the commemorative post-Olympics Wheaties
     box," according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR-
     TRIBUNE.  Weiner reports, however, that there could be a
     "hitch" involving Team USA's Jenny Schmidgall, a Univ. of MN
     recruit who "could lose her eligibility" if featured.  NCAA
     Dir of Member Services Steve Mallonee said that Schmidgall's
     name nor picture would not be allowed to appear on the
     cereal box.  One option for Wheaties would be to place just
     a few of the players on the box (STAR TRIBUNE,2/19).
          NOTES: TNT will replay the third period of the U.S.-
     Canada gold medal game today, at approximately 5:00pm ET
     (TNT)....NHL Ice, the official web site of the NHL,
     announced the online availability of merchandise celebrating
     the USA Women's gold medal, including locker room T-shirts
     and hats, replica jerseys, sweatshirts and photos (NHL).
