"The tournament's popularity necessitates this expansion as well as the proposed changes in the NCAA recruiting calendar," said Jacobs. With the tremendous amount of different rules from various states as to when teams can play and how many games each team can play, the addition of the fifth day will allow states that have not been able to play three days in a row to do so and be able to experi- ence the "big time" national at- mosphere.. Thirty-nine teams will play games Saturday, Dec. 26 to Wednesday, Dec. 30. The newest addition that has gained popularity across the Unit- ed States will be the Delaware River and Bay Authority Sunday Shootout, where various teams will match up, providing games that otherwise would not have been made possible due to sched- uling and statewide restrictions. The outstanding matchups will surely appeal to the 51,000 fans who attend the national holiday event each year. For more information, contact the executive offices at 302-734- SLAM (7526).
