From Staff and Wire Reports

The NCAA was accused of enforcing credentials rules that limit coverage of its basketball Final Four by black-oriented news outlets.

The NCAA denied the allegations, saying minority media outlets are treated fairly.

The Indianapolis Recorder, one of the nation’s oldest black newspapers, said it was denied a request to have a photographer at the Hoosier Dome today and Monday night. It said the NCAA rules limit photo passes to publications with a daily circulation of at least 350,000 or a weekly circulation of at least 700,000.

The Recorder was given credentials for one reporter only.
