Academics dominate NCAA summit

MSU -$175,000
but+ coach Perkes

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Legislation to toughen
academic requirements could destroy many athletic
programs at black universities, the president of
Grambling State told delegates at the 77th NCAA
convention, yesterday.
In the meantime, support for the measures seemed
divided along racial lines. Black educators charged
that proposals to include minimum scores on ACT or
SAT college entrance exams would be racially and
regionally discriminatory. They also questioned,
during a three-hour delegate discussion, why no
blacks were included on either NCAA or American
Council on Education committees that drew up
several of the academic measures.
MANY WHITE educators urged adoption of a
proposal that would include minimum ACT and SAT
scores and denied that it would discriminate against
blacks. The proposal, No. 48, was drawn up by the
ACE and also has the public support of the College
Football Association.
Delegates will begin voting today.

"I do not want anyone to get the idea that we are
not concerned with stronger academic standards,"
said Dr. Joseph Johnson, president of Grambling.
"But we also know how biased the ACT and SAT tests
can be." Johnson said he spoke for all 114
predominantly black schools that comprise the
National Association for Equal Opportunity.
DR. CHARLES Young, chancellor of UCLA and a
member of both the NCAA and the ACE committees,
urged the convention to adopt Proposal No. 48.
The measure would require high school athletes to
have taken-a "core curriculum" of at least 11
academic courses, including English, math, social
sciences and natural or physical sciences. Students
would also need a 2.0 high school grade point and a
minimum 700 combined score on the SAT verbal and
math sections or a 15 composite score on the ACT.
The proposal would go into effect in August 1986.
"This is not meant to restrict admission," Young
said. "It is a proposal which we believe will make it
more likely for students to succeed academically.
Those who do not meet the requirements are not

likely to succeed academically if they are also com-
peting athletically in the very intensive ways now
required of athletes."
YOUNG SAID he did not know why no black
educators were included on the NCAA or ACE com-
mittees. "Some were invited, but did not come," he
Johnson said he and other black educators "have
no problem with the core curriculum. We already
have that. But if it, (No. 48) passes it could
destroy our programs."
In other news, the NCAA has asked its lawyers to
draft a bill making NCAA television sports plans
exempt from federal antitrust laws, it was disclosed
Michael Scott, of the Washington, D.C. law firm of
Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, told the opening session
of the NCAA's 77th annual convention that an an-
titrust exemption is one of several options if an ap-
peals court upholds a lower court ruling which over-
turned the NCAA's four-year $261.5 million football
TV package with ABC and CBS.

"We finally put two good halves
together," said Michigan head coach
Gloria Soluk. The Wolverines, who have
won their last three out of four contests,

used a zone defense most of the game
and shut down the Hawkeyes in the
second half, allowing only 26 points.

to the victory.
HARTE, AVERAGING 23.4 points
per game this season, added five assists
and six rebounds to the Wolverine ef-
fort. The sophomore forward played a
physical game at the low post against a
bigger Iowa team.
"It's always rough under there," said
Harte, who nevertheless hit on 10 of 17
shots from the field. She added that
teammates Diana Wiley and Wendy
Bradetich have made the battle under
the boards a little easier. Bradetich and
Wiley each had eight rebounds and
scored 13 and 10 points, respectively.
The victory upped Michigan's record
to 3-9 and evened its Big Ten record at
1-1. Iowa fell to 4-6 overall, 0-2 in the Big

"We're hoping we can hang in and
hopefully pull out a victory."

record at Memphis State, said he was
happy with the Tigers' No. 1 honor but
not too concerned about it.
"IT'S A MATTER of pride," he said.
"I'm pleased for the players and fans.
But, as far as being overly concerned,
no, I'm not."
