What the new NCAA rules mean for college basketball

According to a news release by the NCAA, the "NBA draft flexibility rule will go into effect when the NBA or the NBPA make an expected rule change, which would make undrafted student-athletes who return to college after the draft ineligible for the NBA until the end of the next college basketball season". While that may seem like a big deal on its face, the fact that it's.

University presidents and chancellors will also now be personally resposible for their athletics programs abiding by the NCAA's rules. "Also, schools are required to cooperate fully during NCAA investigations and take appropriate corrective action".

Rice said the vast majority of schools play by the rules but a "win at all cost" approach by others who have been inadequately punished must be changed. "Those who break rules face stronger penalties, including longer postseason bans, longer head coach suspensions, increased recruiting restrictions and additional fines".
