Daily Compliance Item- 3.16.15- 11.6.1- Scouting at NCAA First Four Games

Now that the tournament bracket has been set for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, here is a reminder regarding coaches scouting the four first round games being played on March 17-18 in Dayton, OH.  Bylaw 11.6.1 does  allow an institution’s coaching staff  to scout since the teams are considered potential opponents, not future opponents.
Per the May 31, 2013, RWG Question & Answer document, a future opponent is an opponent that appears on a team’s schedule (Q&A #1) and potential opponents in the NCAA tournament are not “future opponents” unless they appear on the institution’s schedule (Q&A #2). Since the actual opponent has not yet been determined, it is not considered scheduled.
