    Yup!

    Thereís a reason itís been so hard to get college athletes compensated and itís not just about ďamateurismĒ and the greedy NCAA (though itís very much about those things). The schools have a ton of leverage because *they* are the product just as much of the players, with some obvious and notable exceptions.

    The G league will always lose money but the NBA can afford to fund their own development league especially since itís their rule that keeps 18 yr olds from going pro. I think G league options like Ignite are the best possible outcome for college basketball. But it could be negated by the ďName, Image and LikenessĒ nonsense coming down the pike. Scoot is reportedly getting $1 million over 2-years. I think some collegeís boosters will happily dwarf that number. I know others disagree, but I find the thought of schools lining up competitive offers to out-bid the NCAA to be nauseating.

    Elite High School League

    High school basketball powerhouses form national league set to begin in 2021-22 season

    Jeff BorzelloPaul Biancardi

    Six of the biggest high school basketball powerhouses, including Oak Hill Academy (Virginia) and Montverde Academy (Florida), are forming an elite national league set to begin in the 2021-22 season.

    The National Interscholastic Basketball Conference will feature traditional powers Oak Hill, Montverde, IMG Academy (Florida), La Lumiere School (Indiana), Sunrise Christian Academy (Kansas) and Wasatch Academy (Utah), along with two other schools yet to be announced. The eight teams will play a 10-game regular season, play in special NIBC events and hold a postseason tournament.

    I pray that we do not become one of those schools.
