You win some, you lose some: The Tipline for 12 March 2019
College basketball conference tournaments are now underway. The winners from the 32 Division I conferences will earn automatic entry into the NCAA’s March Madness tournament while another 36 wait to see if the league’s selection committee chooses them. Traditionally, the most successful teams have come from the “Power Five” conferences, but a California federal court ruling last week could lead to some more parity. Judge Claudia Wilken ruled that it would be up to the individual conferences, not the NCAA, to set restrictions on non-tuition academic-related resources. In competing to recruit top-talent, schools may now have the incentive to offer more to its student-athletes in the form graduate school scholarships, post-eligibility internships and school supplies.
