NCAA APPROVES $54.5M SETTLEMENT IN RESTRICTED EARNINGS CASE

          The NCAA Exec Committee has approved the recommended
     payment plan in the restricted earnings case settlement for
     $54.5M that will compensate coaches whose earnings were
     illegally restricted.  The Exec Committee's action was to
     approve use of NCAA-wide reserves totalling $18.25M to help
     reduce the allocation of payment.  The remaining $36.25M
     will be assumed by the Div. I member schools.  Payments from
     these schools will range from about $80,000 for the smaller
     ones to around $200,000 for the larger ones (NCAA).
