NCAA panel wants to ban male players from practicing with women's teams


The women's basketball team at UNC might have to cut Scott Maynor. Maynor, a 5-11 junior from Greensboro, was dripping with sweat Wednesday afternoon after practicing two hours against Ivory Latta and the Tar Heels. Many women's collegiate teams, especially in basketball, bring in male students for practice. Coaches think practicing against men helps their teams. But the NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics thinks this violates the intent of Title IX. Earlier this month, the committee released a recommendation that the NCAA ban male practice players in all women's sports. (Raleigh News & Observer)
