After seven months, the NCAA’s Commission on College Basketball has completed its work and is ready to issue a report Wednesday on how to fix the sport.
Here’s what happens next:
- Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will present the commission’s report to university presidents of the NCAA board of governors and Division I board of directors on Wednesday at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis.
- The boards will convene after the presentation to consider adoption of all, parts or none of the commission’s recommendations. Adoption is a small step toward implementation.
- If adopted, the boards will then direct the Division I Council, a group mostly composed of athletic directors, to craft legislation to implement the proposals.
- NCAA President Mark Emmert has said the council has already begun creating subcommittees to work on legislation in particular areas the commission is expected to address, such as the NBA’s so-called one-and-done rule, enforcement of rules and the relationship between players and agents.
- Legislation is expected to be presented back to the board by August so reform can be implemented before the next basketball season begins.
