The NCAA has banned four AAU basketball travel teams from participating in NCAA-sanctioned summer events because of their association with a sports agent, according to several news outlets. The teams are the New England Playaz, the World Wide Renegades, the SEBL All Stars and the Florida Rams.
The Rams' team administrator is Clearwater High graduate Matt Ramker.
There are two local players on the Rams' roster, Dallas Moore (Boca Ciega) and Max Eaton (Admiral Farragut). While the NCAA ruled Ramker can't be involved with the Rams in any capacity and the team must disband, the players are free to find other teams to play with. The NCAA said the four teams had contact with sports agent Andy Miller of ASM Sports Agency. By NCAA rule, non-scholastic basketball teams that are associated with agents are prohibited from competing in NCAA-certified summer basketball events.
