    I'm guessing the NCAA had to decide between fielding enough decent men's basketball teams next season or suspending many top recruits who went to these basketball factories doubling as "schools." A sound financial decision on the NCAA's part, and of course they maintained the highest level of integrity.

    Recruits From Dubious Prep Schools Allowed To Play Next Season

    Most top recruits who attended prep schools with strong basketball teams but reportedly questionable academic credentials will be allowed to play in college next season, the NCAA announced yesterday.

    The NCAA said 22 prep schools, including powerhouses such as Oak Hill Academy and Fork Union Military Academy, will be subject to future review of their academic integrity, and individual athletes still might have their transcripts scrutinized for irregularities. ...

    Yesterday, one former Lutheran player said he was surprised by the NCAA's decision.

    "Academically, it was a joke," said guard Joseph Wilson of Alpharetta, Ga., who said he spent six months last year enrolled at Lutheran. "I left the school early because I realized it was bull."
