Black Coaches Angry

Angered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association's lack of responsiveness to its concerns, the Black Coaches Association have called for disruptions in the remainder of the college basketball season.


Saturday is the likely starting date for boycotts and demonstrations, sources familiar with the BCA leadership's strategy said Tuesday.


Monday, delegates at the annual NCAA convention in San Antonio soundly rejected a proposal that would have restored one scholarship to the 13-scholarship limit for men's basketball teams.


The new limit went into effect this season but was criticized by BCA leadership, which said that restoring the 14th scholarship was a matter of providing educational opportunity, particularly for African American athletes who make up 60-70 percent of the NCAA's Division I men's basketball players.
