BERKLEY BLASTS NCAA, CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION

Feb 15, 2002 12:28 AM

Shelley Berkley was brutally honest during testimony before the House Energy and Commerce sub-committee on trade and consumer protection.

Berkley called for a federal investigation of the NCAA, which is trying to ban Nevada sports books from taking bets on college athletic events.

"Tell us how you really feel," said Chairman Cliff Stearns. R-Fla.

Frank Fahrenkopf, president of the American Gaming Association, testified that the NCAA has failed to prove that legalized betting in Nevada contributes to illegal sports wagering.
