NCAA D1 Basketball Live Period




What is the NCAA basketball live period? First of all, the live period is really the evaluation period. This enables college coaches to attend tournaments to view and evaluate players. At these tournaments coaches have their own section because they aren't allowed to have any contact with the players or their parents. Please remember that coaches attend these tournaments with a prepared list of players to see. Do what it takes to be on this list.
