Dr. Katrice Albert on the NCAA’s decision to cancell spring sports

Weekdays 7AM - 10AM

Former Vice President of Inclusion and Human Resources for the NCAA Dr. Katrice Albert joined Jordy and T-Bob to respond to the cancellation of collegiete spring sports and the decision to give back eligibility due to the coronavirus.

“I think that was the absolute right decision,” Dr. Albert said. “(Mark Emmert) talked about how we do sports but we’re really in the human development business.”

Now that the NCAA has made this decision, how will the organization solve the problems surrounding scholarships, etc.?

“Decision making is harder in high stress times,” Dr. Albert said. “As the days tick on, it’s going to impact departments of athletics and their funding.”
