Ocean’s Eleven is conducting its conference women’s basketball tournament at Ocean State University (OSU) this year. Ocean’s Eleven would like OSU to produce and provide posters promoting the conference championship to local schools, including high schools, to help increase attendance. Is this permissible?
Yes. NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52 states that an institution hosting an NCAA or conference championship may produce a poster promoting the championship and send it to a high school coach and/or his or her educational institution. It is not permissible to send such a poster to a prospective student-athlete. [D] (Adopted: 10/28/99, Revised: 4/6/00, 1/10/05 effective 8/1/05)
