I've never heard how much women's tournament credits are worth.

Basketball is the foundation upon which all multi-sport conferences are built, so I'm afraid the answer to the OP's inquiry is no.

Well, whatever the case, I think Uconn will leave the AAC.

Cheers!

It can't be very much, or it wouldn't be so hard to find the answer to that question. As I understand it, UConn reported $4 million in total revenue for its women's team in 2014-15. That includes ticket sales, parking and concessions, advertising, all media payments and tournament distributions. By contrast, the team cost $6.7 million to operate, for a whopping $2.7 million loss despite drawing big crowds at home.

I don't believe any women's basketball team in the NCAA breaks even. Going independent isn't going to change that.

Well Uconn has to split their NCAA earnings with their AAC conference mates. How much would an Indy make for winning the whole thng?

Great question. I know a conference gets huge money or "units" for winning an NCAA tournament game. That's why the AAC got more money paid to it then any other conference last year for old NCAA units earned. A lot of the money came from units owed from the old big east, and UCONN winning in 2014. The money gets dispersed over a 6 year period I think. A fb natty would probably be paid right after. Imagine Notre Dame winning one without having to share the money with a conference?

Cheers!

That would be pretty impressive for ND or BYUl to win a fb natty as an indy and keep the $.

I suspect the WBB "units" are much smaller but if Uconn could keep them all it might be worth something.
