High School Basketball Promoter Files Federal Lawsuit Against NCAA
Published January 3, 2013
High school basketball tournament organizer Bleid Sports is suing the NCAA in federal court, "accusing the governing body of committing fraud and antitrust violations." The Kentucky-based sports promoter claims the NCAA "pulled the rug out from under them at the 11th hour by determining they violated an NCAA rule designed to prevent universities from gaining unfair recruiting advantages by hosting practices or tournaments where prospective recruits compete." Bleid Sports had set up tournaments at several college arenas, including Duke, Kentucky, Louisville and UNLV (USATODAY.com, 1/2).
