The NCAA announces significant and wide-ranging changes to college basketball under the main categories of flexibility and freedom for S-As, minimizing harmful outside influencers, enforcement and accountability, and adding outside voices. In a joint statement from NCAA President Emmert, Georgia Tech Prez & Board of Governors Chair Peterson, and Minnesota Prez & DI Board of Directors Chair Kaler: "These changes will promote integrity in the game, strengthen accountability and prioritize the interests of student-athletes over every other factor. We remain committed to promoting fairness in college sports and creating an environment that will champion the success of student-athletes." Also noting that the NCAA will "consider additional changes" if the NBA, NBPA, and USABasketball are "unwilling or unable to act."
