 RAYCOM TO TELECAST 20 PURDUE BASKETBALL GAMES
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Raycom, the nation's leading


independent sports programmer, will telecast 20 Purdue University regular season games for the 1991-92 basketball season.
 The Purdue Boilermakers enter the season coming off a 17-11 record, an NCAA Tournament appearance and a fifth-place Big Ten finish. The frontcourt will be led by freshman Cuonzo Martin, senior Craig Riley and sophomores Cornelius McNary and Ian Stanback. Martin is a highly regarded swingman who attended prep school last year. The backcourt will consist of senior Woody Austin and sophomores Travis Trice and Linc Darner.
 Ken Double will be this season's play-by-play announcer, with Bob Ford providing the color commentary.
 Raycom, based in Charlotte with offices in New York, Chicago and Dallas, is a specialist in regional networks for college sports. Last year, Raycom carried 334 college basketball games on an over-the-air network covering 80 percent of the country.
