INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - NCAA schools have fallen just short of scrapping a ban on universities hosting prep basketball events on campus.

Of the 355 schools voting electronically last week, 58.59 percent wanted to rescind the legislation that was approved in April. Rescinding the rule requires a 5/8th majority, meaning the override measure fell roughly 13 votes short.

A similar proposal has been made for women's basketball.

Opponents of the original legislation believe schools used the events to help with recruiting and run the events at a discounted cost. Many schools that supported the override said they were losing money because of the change.

The legislation has led to cancellations of many prep basketball events, including an all-day tourney slated for Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse earlier this month.
