NCAA wants to cleanup men’s basketball recruiting

Big news out of Indianapolis. According to the Associated Press, the NCAA executive board “approved one series of measures to toughen existing recruiting rules and offered support for additional measures to prevent the funneling of money to those close to recruits.
Additional proposals would put an end to consulting fees paid by the schools and prohibit schools from hiring a recruit’s high school or summer league coaches to help with summer camps or clinics. If rules are approved, violators could be suspended from NCAA regular-season or postseason games.
The package drew support from the National Association of Basketball Coaches, the AAU and conference commissioners.”
IN OTHER NEWS:
— The NCAA Legislative Council will consider a proposal that trims the number of regular-season games from 29 to 28. Teams could also play 26 games, including an exempt that allows them to play a non-conference tournament.
— Oregon State president Ed Ray will lead a six-member search committee to replace president Myles Brand, who died last month of pancreatic cancer.
