ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — NCAA officials and Kentucky coach John Calipari at least agree on something: The one-and-done rule in college basketball needs to be revised.

NCAA president Mark Emmert said during his annual news conference Sunday that he is in “vocal opposition” to the rule established by the NBA and its union that requires players be at least one year removed from high school before declaring for the NBA draft.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby went further, saying “the NFL and NBA have been irresponsible in not providing other legitimate opportunities for kids that really don’t want to go to college.”

Calipari has said he favors a two-year period before entering the NBA, even though he has several potential one-and-dones on the team playing UConn in Monday night’s title game.
