The College Basketball Commission led by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has presented recommendations on how to fix corruption in college basketball. In a 60-page report, the commission suggested sweeping reforms, including allowing players to return to school after going undrafted and ban cheating coaches for life.
College basketball has been embroiled in a fraud and bribery scandal since last year, when federal prosecutors charged coaches, an Adidas executive and others with improperly steering recruits toward certain schools, agents and sponsorship deals.
Meanwhile, Kentucky coach John Calipari tweeted this morning that he has not looked at the commission’s report because he has been hospitalized. Coach Cal said he had “minor” surgery Tuesday that will keep him in the hospital for a couple of days. He did not disclose what the surgery was, but noted he would likely miss recruiting this weekend.
