    ESPN - Athletes sue NCAA, Power 5 for not getting paid

    The NCAA added a new legal challenge to its already cumbersome caseload Thursday, as a trio of college athletes filed suit against the association and its five most powerful conferences claiming that rules that prohibit schools from paying their athletes violate antitrust law.

    Duke football player Dewayne Carter, Stanford soccer player Nya Harrison and TCU basketball player Sedona Prince filed their 70-page complaint in the Northern District of California federal court, the same venue where the NCAA has lost a series of antitrust claims in the past decade. Their attorneys requested an injunction that would prevent the NCAA from enforcing rules that prohibit "pay for play" compensation for athletes and seeks damages for past payments the athletes would have received if the current rules were not in place.

    "It's time for the NCAA to recognize that the rules prohibiting athletes from sharing in the massive revenues we help to generate are harming all college athletes," Carter said in a statement provided by his lawyers. "There are hundreds of people involved in NCAA sports but the only ones who cannot be paid are the athletes; I'm proud to stand up for all college athletes to correct that injustice."

      ESPN - WVU's RaeQuan Battle suing NCAA in federal court over eligibility

      West Virginia guard RaeQuan Battle filed a federal lawsuit against the NCAA on Friday and asked a judge to issue a temporary restraining order in his effort to gain immediate eligibility to play.

      His lawyers have accused the NCAA of weaponizing waiver requests with inconsistent evaluations.

      The NCAA denied Battle's initial waiver request to play after transferring in the spring from Montana State, his second school. Last month, the appeal West Virginia filed on his behalf -- players who transfer twice need a waiver to play immediately at their next school -- was also denied, months after the NCAA announced a more rigid list of guidelines for players seeking waivers. Those guidelines included proof that a transfer would enhance a player's mental health if it had been "impaired" at a previous school.

        ESPN - 1983 NC State title team members sue NCAA over NIL compensation

        Ten players from NC State's 1983 national champion basketball team have sued the NCAA and the Collegiate Licensing Company seeking compensation for unauthorized use of their name, image and likeness.

        The players filed suit in Wake County Superior Court on Monday, requesting a jury trial and "reasonable compensation."

        The late Jim Valvano's 1983 team became known as the "Cardiac Pack" for a series of close victories culminating in a 54-52 win over Houston on Lorenzo Charles' dunk in the final seconds. Valvano's run around the court became an iconic moment frequently replayed as part of NCAA tournament promotions.

        "For more than 40 years, the NCAA and its co-conspirators have systematically and intentionally misappropriated the Cardiac Pack's publicity rights -- including their names, images, and likenesses -- associated with that game and that play, reaping scores of millions of dollars from the Cardiac Pack's legendary victory," the lawsuit said.

        NCAA spokesperson Michelle Hosick did not immediately return a text message seeking comment Monday from The Associated Press.

        Plaintiffs include former team members Thurl Bailey, Alvin Battle, Walt Densmore, Tommy DiNardo, Terry Gannon, George McClain, Cozell McQueen, Walter Proctor, Harold Thompson and Mike Warren.
