Mexican Youth Basketball League Named for Najera

Mexico' new youth basketball league, modeled on the program that produced Eduardo Najera, has been named after the Nets' forward. Papers setting up "La Liga Telmex-Najera" were signed Wednesday by Roberto Gonzalez, league president and Najera's longtime friend. The program, financed by Mexico's phone company, will eventually involve 35 to 60 thousand boys and girls.
