NCAA president to take stand in O'Bannon trial


TIM DAHLBERG, AP Sports Writer


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — NCAA President Mark Emmert will take the stand to defend his organization in a landmark antitrust case that could one day lead to players getting paid a portion of the billions of dollars in television money flowing into big-time college athletics.

Emmert is scheduled to testify Thursday in a much anticipated appearance as the NCAA tries to convince a federal judge that its system of so-called "amateurism" is not anti-competitive and is the best model for regulating college sports.

Plaintiffs led by former UCLA basketball star Ed O'Bannon are seeking an injunction that would allow players to band together and sell the rights to their names and likenesses in broadcasts. They envision a system in which players can get money when they leave college for their play.
