NCAA Gives College Basketball Players More Freedom With New Rules

Report: NBA, USA Basketball blindsided by NCAA's proposed rule changes

The NCAA launched a commission and set of subcommittees to address the fallout from the recent FBI investigation into the college basketball industry, resulting in several policy shifts, including the assigning of responsibility to USA Basketball for something the organization had already told the NCAA it wanted no part of: selecting elite senior high school prospects who will be allowed to sign with registered agents.

The biggest change is one that now allows undrafted players to return to school if they so choose. The players who return would be ineligible for the NBA draft until the end of the next college basketball season. There's so much money in college basketball that schools have to hunt for ways to spend it, yet players get little more than books, food and a place to sleep.There's more, of course, because there's plenty to change.

That follows late-April recommendations from the commission headed by former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice following a federal investigation into alleged bribes and kickbacks created to influence recruits on choosing a school, agent or apparel company.

Agents would be allowed to cover minimal expenses such as meals and transportation associated with meetings or workouts with pro teams, but that could be complicated. These agents will be certified by the NCAA and are subject to corollary if they violate NCAA standards.

"Deal with is Mexico Coming Along Nicely...Canada Must Wait".
But he reiterated his threat that tariffs on auto imports could be in store for the U.S. neighbor to the north: "Canada must wait".

The earliest the National Basketball Association intends to change the policy on high schoolers entering the draft is 2021 based on the collective bargaining agreement.

The more things change, the more they stay the same with the NCAA.

"We delivered on a promise made just months ago to make profound and meaningful changes to college basketball", the NCAA statement read.

"There's a lot of stuff that needs to be worked out", Calipari added.

"My question is, what if there are no scholarships at that school because they gave the scholarships away because they thought he was leaving?" "What does that kid do now?"

The policies adopted by the NCAA's Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors include the appointment of independent groups to handle and resolve complex cases.

As an arrangement upon employment, school presidents and athletic staff will be required to be fully compliant with investigations. The NCAA says that will save time since investigators would no longer have to independently confirm information outlined by other agencies or outside investigations.

"There's a lot of talk and there's been a lot of work put into it, but I don't think the rule changes are going to be quite as impactful as some may think", Dixon said on Thursday, a day after the NCAA announced the changes.

Zimbabwe opposition leader charged over post-election violence
The polls' aftermath has been marred by allegations of a crackdown on opposition members, including beatings and arrests. The president-elect who is to be sworn into office this weekend and his party, Zanu-PF, have welcomed the court action.

Federal prosecutors announced last fall they had charged 10 men - including assistant coaches at Arizona, Auburn, USC and Oklahoma State along with a top Adidas executive - in a fraud and bribery scandal. This, when coupled with the fact that the 2020 class would be finishing up their own one-and-done rookie season could lead to an unprecedented number of five-star recruits available at the top half of the 2021 NBA Draft, and with the Heat now teetering on a potential collapse, this pick could have been seriously valuable.
