NCAA: Four Nonscholastic Teams Found With Ties to Sports Agent

On July 5, 2012, the NCAA released an article concerning the banning of four nonscholastic teams from participation in NCAA-certified summer basketball events due to ties with sports agent Andy Miller. The NCAA enforcement staff, which obtained a copy of an e-mail sent from Miller’s account, determined after interviews with individuals from the nonscholastic teams, that prohibited conduct occurred between them and Miller. The banned teams include the New England Playaz (17U and 16U), Worldwide Renegades (17U, 16U and 15U), Florida Rams (17U and 16U) and SEBL Elite All-stars (17U and 15U).

As a result, if an event operator allows these teams to compete in an NCAA-certified event while affiliated with the involved individuals, the event operator may be in violation of the NCAA basketball event certification requirements. The individual prospective student-athletes’ eligibility has not been impacted and they will still be able to compete on other nonscholastic teams. The NCAA is working with the prospective student-athletes  and event operators to assist the prospective student-athletes in finding opportunities to participate in upcoming events.
