INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - 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. Some coaches took advantage of that this year and decided to hold Midnight Madness a week earlier than the season's official start date. The new guidelines take effect next season.
The board also heard recommendations intended to give individual coaches their own academic progress report and a proposal that would reinstate possible television bans for NCAA infractions.
