NCAA falls short in

overturning scouting ban

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA will ban coaches from scouting future opponents at most live games in all sports.

The legislation, originally passed in January, fell short of being overridden this week by the full membership. Though a majority of eligible Division I schools that cast votes — 154 of 279 — elected to eliminate the ban on live scouting, it represented only 55.2 percent. It takes 62.5 percent to override the measure. Ninety-six of the eligible schools didn’t vote.

The ban takes effect in August.

An NCAA committee proposed the ban because of improvements in video technology and the belief that live scouting could impact fair competition because some coaches believe they won’t have the same access to quality video.

Other schools say the ban runs contrary to the NCAA’s deregulation effort. The ban takes effect in August.
