     SITV will feature figure skater Christopher Bowman, a two-
time Olympian.  SPORTS ILLUSTRATED senior writer E.M. Swift
chronicles the rise and fall of Bowman who has been struggling to
"overcome years of substance abuse."  Bowman, who says he is now
clean and sober, is currently a skating instructor in MA.  The
program airs on ABC's "Wide World of Sports" this Saturday,
4:30pm EST (SITV)....ESPN's Dick Vitale said that NCAA basketball
players should get $150-200 a month:  "The bottom line is these
kids deserve it.  They're selling merchandise on campuses with
their jerseys, etc ... When you think of $1.7 billion paid for
the rights for the tournament and the money that's on the college
campuses with the merchandise we just talked about, they really
deserve it" ("SportsCenter," 3/16).
