NCAA to allow more flexibility for college basketball players considering the NBA

Missing in the NCAA's package of rule changes is anything to do with pay for players, a wish from many in the college sports community and the inspiration for a multitude of opinion pieces over the years.

The NCAA launched a commission and set of subcommittees to address the fallout from the recent FBI investigation into the college basketball industry, resulting in several policy shifts, including the assigning of responsibility to USA Basketball for something the organization had already told the NCAA it wanted no part of: selecting elite senior high school prospects who will be allowed to sign with registered agents.

Apple, Facebook and Spotify remove Alex Jones content
Former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage tweeted that Jones was " the victim today of collusion by the big tech giants ". At least, that's what his lawyer told a judge when Jones was embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-wife a year ago .

First, it will allow players who have "request (ed) an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation, participate (d) in the NBA combine and aren't drafted" to return to school and participate in college basketball again.

The NCAA announced several new policies and rules today, including that players will now be allowed to return to school if they declare for the National Basketball Association draft but are not selected. For instance, student-athletes can make up to five official visits during their junior year of high school and another five visits during their senior year. These changes will promote integrity in the game, strengthen accountability and prioritize the interests of student-athletes over every other factor.

US Cites 'pervasive' Russian Efforts to Weaken Election
Stewart said when he made his predictions, he was asked about who he thought Russian Federation wanted to win the election. All of them, except for Nielsen, specifically mentioned Russia's past and future- intended interference in USA elections.

University presidents and chancellors will also now be personally resposible for their athletics programs abiding by the NCAA's rules.

Last month in Las Vegas, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said, "My personal view is that we're ready to make that change, [but] that it won't come immediately". Among them: The players most in need of representation and having to go back to school would be ones who weren't selected for the combine, and in some situations, players seeking to return to school will find their scholarship slots filled by someone else. "Division I", NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a teleconference with reporters Wednesday afternoon. The NCAA will establish a fund to assist schools otherwise unable to provide this aid.

Potentially severe storms Friday could cause more flooding ahead of drier weekend
But as has been the case most of the week, it's not the heat but rather the humidity that makes it rather unbearable outside. While rain is not as widespread as Saturday , targeted areas may get repetitive bouts of heavy showers and thunderstorms.

Basketball student athletes can now take up 10 official visits between Aug.1 of their junior year and October 15 after their high school graduation: five as a junior and five as senior, according to the NCAA.
