How should student-athletes be compensated?
High-level sports are integrated into US institutions of higher education to an extent that is unparalleled in peer countries. Intercollegiate men’s basketball and football, in particular, generate significant revenue from tickets sales and broadcasting rights. At the same time, student-athlete compensation is severely limited. Last year, the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that some of these limitations violate the Sherman Antitrust Act. The Supreme Court will review that decision later this term in NCAA v. Alston and American Athletic Conference v. Alston.
