College Hockey:
NCAA’s ban on live scouting of future opponents survives override attempt

NCAA members failed to overturn the prohibition on live scouting of future opponents, the association announced Friday.

The Division I board of directors passed the legislation in January but it came under fire as being contrary to deregulation efforts, and 94 schools requested an override.

Only 55.2 percent of the schools and conferences voted to override, however, falling short of the 62.5 percent needed.

The ban on live scouting was proposed by the rules working group because of improvements in video technology. Some coaches raised concerns about varying levels in access to quality video.
