NCAA president Mark Emmert said that the college athletics community is “disgusted and embarrassed” by the FBI investigation into alleged corruption in college basketball and must address several areas to clean up the sport. Speaking Wednesday at the Learfield Intercollegiate Athletics Forum, Emmert outlined five areas of focus for the newly formed Commission on College Basketball: the NBA, shoe companies, agents, youth and summer basketball competition, and the involvement of the NCAA’s national office to enforce greater accountability in the sport. In October, Emmert appointed former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to chair the committee, which also includes former college and NBA stars David Robinson and Grant Hill. The committee began to meet last month and will deliver recommendations for change at the NCAA’s Division I board of directors meeting in April. – Adam Rittenberg, espn.comRead More
