Jay Bilas says the NCAA is so determined to punish North Carolina that it’s breaking its own rules to do so. Bilas – a former Duke basketball player who now works with ESPN – said there’s never been a situation like the one at UNC, where university officials allegedly used fraudulent classes to keep players eligible. But Bilas thinks the NCAA has stepped out of line. “They’re breaking their own rules to try to punish North Carolina because they don’t like this …” said Bilas, who’s hosting a basketball camp this weekend in Charlotte. “You can’t just violate the rules because you don’t like something.” The NCAA has spent years trying to prosecute the UNC case, arguing that the university violated the tenets of academic integrity. But the university has fought back, claiming the NCAA has no business meddling in academic matters. – C JACKSON COWART, charlotteobserver.comRead More
