Kansas City Star: NCAA president would like to be done with one-and-done rule. I absolutely agree. Outside of UK no one in the SEC has to worry too much about one-and-done players, but the practice hurts college hoops overall, which ultimately hurts the NBA. The NCAA and NBA should collaborate to adopt a rule similar to college baseball, where after high school a player can elect to go pro or college - but if he goes the collegiate route, he stays for three years before he can declare for the draft. It will build greater fan interest at all levels of basketball, and promote more parity (by preventing top programs like UK, UNC, Syracuse, etc., from opening up their doors every year to the next gaggle of one-and-done guys).
