09:38 AM ET 04.02 | The Indianapolis Star reported the findings of Friday of a four-month study pertaining to student-athletes who played in the men's Final Four from 1991 to 2007. The Star obtained results for 357 athletes who played at least one minute in a Final Four semifinal or championship game for a taxpayer-funded public university.
