     The NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament in 2000 will be held
in Philadelphia.  The city "can expect an infusion" of $10-$15M
by hosting the games, according to Mel Greenberg in the
PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER.  While the Spectrum is listed as the site
for the games, the NCAA will be asked to transfer the event to
the new CoreStates Center once the arena opens next year.  The
Univ of PA and St. Joseph's will cohost the event (PHILADELPHIA
INQUIRER, 8/10).
