Supreme Court win for college athletes in compensation case

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday the NCAA can't limit education-related benefits - like computers and paid internships - that colleges can offer their sports stars, a victory for athletes that could help open the door to further easing in the decades-old fight over paying student-athletes.

Schools recruiting top athletes could now offer tens of thousands of dollars in education-related benefits that also include study-abroad programs and graduate scholarships. However, the case doesn't decide whether students can simply be paid salaries for the benefits their efforts bring - measured in tens of millions for many universities.

The high court agreed with a lower court's determination that NCAA limits on the education-related benefits that colleges can offer athletes who play Division I basketball and football violate antitrust laws.
