NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT- SCOUTING
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 15-16 in Dayton, OH. Although Bylaw 11.6.1 does allow an institution’s coaching staff to scout since the teams are considered potential opponents, not future opponents, there is a rule in the men’s basketball championship policies that precludes scouting during the first round games in Dayton.
Coaches’ Scouting Seats – First Four Games- No in-person scouting of any games in Dayton are permissible either by the teams playing in Dayton, or by the teams which the Dayton winners will play in the First Round. Therefore, no scouting seats are set aside courtside at the First Four.
