NCAA to study possible effects of widespread legal wagering
By Associated Press
The NCAA plans to study how the expansion of legalized betting could affect college athletics and member schools.
The NCAA announced Thursday it will create a working group of “subject matter experts” to assess areas such as officiating, NCAA rules, federal and state laws, and the use of integrity services. NCAA leadership has already called for federal regulation on sports betting. NCAA rules prohibit sports wagering by athletes and athletic department employees.
