5/8 rule remains -- for now

The Basketball Issues Committee met yesterday to discuss, among other issues, the 5/8 rule. In it's first year, the NCAA's rule has drawn significant heat as it restricts the number of scholarships a team can use to five in one year and eight over two years. Schools like Arizona and Georgia Tech have suffered as a result.

Yesterday, the Committee was divided over a proper course of action, so the rule remains intact.
