NO NEED TO BE COY, ROY: KS COACH WILLIAMS CRIES FOUL ON AD

          Univ. of KS men's basketball coach Roy Williams was
     featured in an ad for the "Sports Page Brewery" earlier this
     week, though the university called the move "a mistake,"
     according to Jeffrey Flanagan of the K.C. STAR.  SID Dean
     Buchan said that Williams is friends with the bar's owner,
     who thought it was OK to use a picture in the ad, but "Roy
     didn't want his picture used."  Buchan said that the bar was
     "happy to stop the ad out of respect" for Williams.  NCAA
     Dir of PR Wally Renfro said the appearance of coaches in ads
     promoting bars is not an NCAA violation (K.C. STAR, 3/12).
