NCAA ends early Madness

Advertisement

— The NCAA's board of directors is ending the practice of early Midnight Madness practices because it believes it could give schools a recruiting advantage.

The emergency legislation, passed Thursday, is designed to close a loophole in a previous rule that allowed coaches to have two hours of individual instruction before the official start of the season. Coaches at Kentucky and Illinois took advantage of that this year and decided to hold Midnight Madness a week earlier than the season's official start date.
