Next week

College Basketball jumps into a new season, bringing with it the also-ran's eternal hope: maybe this is the year. Not likely. Bill Walton and UCLA still top the Top 20. But if there is an upset, writes Curry Kirkpatrick, it should come from the rough Atlantic Coast Conference, in particular from North Carolina State and its marvelous David Thompson, who are riding a streak of their own. There are scouting reports on the best of the rest, including potent little Assumption College, and, in color, Walton in action and a portfolio of snakepits where even UCLA would shudder. Plus all regular features and the usual full range of other sports.
