Education secretary to jump into NCAA tournament

The U.S. Department of Education secretary is pushing a proposal to bar men's college basketball teams from post-season play unless they graduate at least 40 percent of their players.

The idea is not going over well with coaches.

Under the proposal, a dozen teams in the NCAA tournament this year would be ineligible -- including top-seed Kentucky, which had a 31 percent graduation rate last year.
