WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court decided unanimously Monday that the NCAA can't enforce rules limiting education-related benefits - like computers and paid internships - that colleges offer to student-athletes, a ruling that could help push changes in how the student-athletes are compensated.

The case doesn't decide whether students can be paid salaries. Instead, the ruling will help determine whether schools decide to offer athletes tens of thousands of dollars in education benefits for things including tutoring, study abroad programs and graduate scholarships.

The high court said that NCAA limits on the education-related benefits that colleges can offer athletes who play Division I basketball and football violate antitrust laws.
