A year of the giant begins in college basketball and, for once, UCLA is not favored to run off with the NCAA title, though it does have one of the very best giants (6'11" Bill Walton). Barring the Bruins' way will be Marquette's Jim Chones, 6'11" too and, writes Curry Kirkpatrick, the finest college player in the land. In a special preview, a gallery of the new big men, scouting reports on the top 20 teams and the best of the rest, and a tall story by William F. Reed on "little" Eau Claire. Along with news and features from the rest of the sports world.
