The NCAA Commission’s report and recommendations on college basketball - some layups, some airballs

On 11 October 2017, resulting from the arrests of numerous college coaches, Adidas representatives, and a recruiter for a now defunct sports agency in connection with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York’s (‘DOJ’) investigation into corruption in “the dark underbelly of college basketball1” - paying coaches, players and/or their families - the National Collegiate Athletic Association (‘NCAA’) President Mark Emmert announced the formation of the Commission On College Basketball (‘Commission’) to examine Division I basketball2. In this article, Ryan P. Mulvaney, Esq., Partner at McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP, provides his analysis of the resulting report and recommendations (‘R&R’) published by the Commission to address the issues in collegiate basketball in the US.
