NCAA NOT READY TO IMPOSE FRESHMEN INELIGIBILITY
Published June 30, 1999
A special NCAA committee formed to examine issues surrounding men's college basketball "will not recommend making" players ineligible for competition during all or part of their freshman season "because of potential legal problems and a lack of membership support for the proposal," according to sources of Mark Asher of the WASHINGTON POST. The committee will now focus "its attention on strengthening existing eligibility rules." The freshman ineligibility proposal had "little grass-roots support," and with recent setbacks for the NCAA involving antitrust and race discrimination, legal observers said that "a rule aimed at one segment of athletes, especially one that is 80% black, is inviting other costly litigation" (WASH. POST, 6/30).
