March Madness 2014
The 2014 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament is scheduled to begin on March 18, 2014, and will conclude with the championship game on April 7 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive says college athletics are "going through a historic evolution." Slive released a statement Monday after a judge's ruling that players in FBS football and Division I men's basketball are entitled to at least $5,000 a year for rights to their names, images and likenesses. The NCAA says it will appeal U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken's ruling against the NCAA's argument that its model of amateurism is the only way to operate college sports.
