Statement from Dr. Condoleezza Rice on NCAA actions

“The problems facing college basketball can’t and won’t be solved overnight, but this is an excellent step in the right direction. Today we feel very good about the proposal developed by the eight topical working groups and the vote of approval cast by the NCAA Board of Governors and Division I Board. The Commission was consulted on the plan to gradually move toward a more collaborative role for the NBA, USA Basketball and NCAA in youth basketball, and is in complete agreement that it is an appropriate path. On behalf of the Commission on College Basketball, we commend the working groups and the NCAA for their commitment and dedication to the future of basketball.”
