The relationship between race and position for college basketball players was investigated using a sample of 644 student-athletes at 47 NCAA affiliates. Seven different operationalizations of position, the dependent variable, produced bivariate associations that were negligible and not statistically significant. The introduction of five control variables (NCAA division, playing and scholarship status, sex, and year in school) failed to alter the bivariate outcomes. The present data indicate that stacking in college basketball has declined, particularly at the center position, but continues to exist at forward and guard slots.
