          Atherton Communications, organizers of the annual NCAA
     basketball John Wooden Classic in CA, has announced plans
     for the John Wooden Tradition, an annual college basketball
     two-game tribute to Wooden in IN.  The event, which will be
     played at Conseco Fieldhouse, will be presented by Arthur
     Andersen and co-produced with Pacers Sports & Entertainment,
     which has entered a long-term agreement to host the event. 
     The inaugural Tradition will be November 25, 2000.  Atherton
     will produce the event as a complement to the John Wooden
     Classic (Atherton).  In Indianapolis, Bill Benner wrote that
     the event will take place every November "for at least the
     next five years and maybe far into the new millennium." 
     Benner also noted that Wooden does motivational speaking for
     Arthur Andersen.  Special Olympics IN "will be the
     beneficiary of proceeds" from the event (STAR-NEWS, 9/22).
