A few days ago, user btbrown1 asked me a question about dad’s team practicing against WNBA players and whether or not this was legal. After consulting people about the bylaws in order to get the best answer possible, I was going to address his question in the next blog I wrote. When Jasper Howard was murdered I put my answer on the backburner, feeling it more pressing to honor Jazz. That done, I will now answer BtBrown1’s question to the best of my limited ability:
Practicing with alumni, provided it is of a sporadic nature, was and is compliant with NCAA rules. The times UCONN players practice with WNBA players are rare and the pro players are always alumni of the university. We have always operated within the laws set down by the NCAA.
