Next week

College basketball begins, and it is a season for challenging. UCLA is favored to be the national champion again, but no team has ever won three NCAA titles in a row and the Uclans have their weaknesses. Some of the chief pretenders are shown in color in their native habitats and others are in scouting reports of the top 20 teams. There also will be reports on sectional leaders, small colleges (in particular, Kenyon) and the new trend back to an old art, ball handling. Plus the usual complement of news and features.
