NCAA WANTS PAPERS TO STOP RUNNING BETTING LINES
Published November 3, 1994
The NCAA may prohibit newspapers that publish college sports betting lines from covering the basketball Final Four. The idea will be discussed at the NCAA Div. I Men's Basketball Committee meetings this month in New York. SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS Executive Sports Editor David Tepps says the betting lines "are more than merely gambling information; they give the fan an idea of how teams match up." Tepps: "I would hate to be blackmailed like that by the NCAA" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 11/3).
