Freshman Help?

Indianapolis, IN - The NCAA's Board of Directors is evaluating a proposal that would require incoming freshmen men's basketball players in need of academic help to take six credit hours in summer school.

The player would have to pass three hours to be able to play.

The Basketball Academic Enhancement Group also recommended allowing players that take summer classes to participate in eight hours per week of athletic activities.
Schools would be required to set the criteria and assess the athlete's ability to perform in the classroom.
The proposal will be developed over the next few months.
