MEADOWLANDS UP NEXT FOR FINAL FOUR '96

     The Meadowlands, which will host the Final Four in '96,
"figures to be the last 'small' facility to host the men's event
in the foreseeable future," according to Michael Dobie of N.Y.
NEWSDAY.  In the piece, Dobie notes the many "pros" and "cons" of
holding the event at the Meadowlands.  Among the pros, "Boon for
hotels, limos, stores and restaurants," and the "Media capital of
the world."  Michael Rowe, Exec VP & GM of Meadowlands Arena and
Giants Stadium:  "We've been told things are going terrific.  We
meet with the [NCAA Tournament] committee every day.  I don't
think anybody has any concern" (N.Y. NEWSDAY, 3/28).
