"We had to leave off some teams who were legitimate contenders," said Finch, director of women's athletks at North Carolina State "Any of the too eight seeds could win if. I could say that about the top 14 teams and be comfortable. Last year, there were not eight teams that you could say had a realistic chance of winning." Southern California, the two-time defending ctampion ted by Olympic gold medalist Cheryl Miller, was relegated to the fourth seed in the West Regional. .. "LIK"* «at Indicates the growth of women's basketball," Finch said. "We iust have more good teams than ever." The regional finals will be held March 2J-24 at four sites — Bowling Green. Ky.. for the Mideast.- Los Angeles in the West; Monroe. Lain the Midwest, and Norfolk. Va.. for the East The semifinals and finals are March 29 and 31 at the University of Texas.

Eagles get new owner PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Leonard Tose's agreement to sell the Philadelphia Eagles to Miami Beach auto magnate and former Philadelphian Norman Braman would provide the National Football League team with a "stable fiscal owner," says Mayor W. Wilson Goode. The deal, announced Saturday in Miami after 10 days of virtually round-the-clock negotiations, is subiect to approval by NFL owners. Braman, 52, would become the seventh owner of the Eagles since the team was founded in 1933. He has said he would keep the team here. "I really didn't (want to sell)," said Tose, who had 16 often stormy years at the helm. "But that's the way it is. I have no regrets. I had a hell of a run." The 70-year-old Tose declined to provide specifics about the sate except to say that the price was "better than" a previously reported figure of $65 million. He paid about S16 million to acquire 99 percent of the club in 1969. Tose, reportedly *42 million in debt, has been under pressure to raise capital to pay a *J2 million loan to Crocker National Bank in San Francisco by Aprill.
