NCAA statement on U.S. Supreme Court oral arguments

“We are grateful to the Court for the opportunity to present our case.  Today, we believe we demonstrated why, under antitrust laws, the NCAA should have ample latitude to ensure college sports are played by student-athletes and not paid professionals.  As we argued, the lower court decision encourages judicial micromanagement, invites never-ending litigation as the NCAA seeks to improve the college athletic experience, and threatens the critical distinction between professional and college sports. We look forward to the Court’s decision.”

– Donald Remy, NCAA chief legal officer
