Duke, who drove expansion of NCAA Tournament, dies at 88

PHOENIX (AP) Wayne Duke, who was a driving force behind the expansion of the NCAA men's basketball tournament during his 18 years as commissioner of the Big Ten, has died. He was 88.

The Big Ten announced Duke's death after his family notified the conference on Wednesday. He had been living in Barrington, Illinois, and had been in declining health, his widow, Martha, told The Associated Press.

After serving for 11 years as assistant to Walter Byers, the first executive director of the NCAA, Duke became commissioner of the Big Eight conference in 1963 at the age of 34. He took over as Big Ten commissioner in 1971 and retired in 1989.
