NCAA Rules Committee Has No Plan To Address Flopping

The NCAA has no plan to follow the NBA's lead in cracking down on floppers.

“They have some tools at their beck and call we don’t have,” said Art Hyland, secretary of NCAA basketball rules. “We don’t have that kind of strong hammer to prevent flops.”

Hyland put the new NBA rule, which will fine players for repeated flops, in the context of public relations.

“They obviously feel it’s become a serious P.R. problem,” he said of the pros. “At times, some of our (college) coaches may get upset by it. But I don’t think it has come to the point it’s a top issue with our rules committee.”
