NCAA adopts college basketball reforms for NBA draft, agents, more

NCAA basketball changes: Undrafted players can return to school | SI.com

In repsonse to the recommendations issued in April from the Commission on College Basketball, the NCAA's Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors are implementing changes to provide student-athletes more freedom and flexibilty to decide about going pro and minimize the leverage of outside influences on high school recruits and college athletes. That relationship must end if the player decides to go to college.

After an FBI investigation found in September that several Division I college basketball coaches were implicated in recruiting bribery, the NCAA wanted to change up some rules to safeguard themselves from ever having to clean up this mess again.

In the past, if a college basketball player declared for the draft, they had until 10 days after the draft combine to return to school. The rules would also allow elite high school players to work with an agent if the National Basketball Association removes its one-and-done rule.

Athletes will be allowed more college-paid visits, which can begin as soon as August 1 the summer before their junior year.

Fatigued Murray withdraws from Citi Open, Rogers…
Murray has played three sets in each Citi Open match (best of threes), and he's played for over 2 1/2 hours every time. The rain delayed the start of Thursday's schedule as Murray and Copil finished their match at 03:01 AM local time.

According to the new rule, which would become effective if the NBA and its players association make an "expected rule change", those undrafted that participate in the NBA combine and request an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation may return to school.

On Wednesday, the NCAA made its long-promised, much-ballyhooed foray into reducing corruption within its college basketball ranks. "Also, schools are required to cooperate fully during NCAA investigations and take appropriate corrective action".

Schools found to be in violation of NCAA rules face stricter penalties, including longer postseason bans (up to five years), coach suspensions (potentially beyond one season), employment limitations, recruiting restrictions and loss of revenue from basketball.

"These changes will promote integrity in the game, strengthen accountability and prioritize the interests of student-athletes over every other factor", NCAA leaders said in joint statement.
