The Drake Group President-Elect Andrew Zimbalist and Drake Board of Directors member Julie Sommer wield a mighty pen with a timely critique of the NCAA’s efforts in the courts to protect its profits – revenues derived from the labor of talented, hard-working—and disproportionately Black—college athletes, especially those playing in the women’s and men’s Final Four tournaments, the most lucrative property of the NCAA. While these athletes deliver dollars and prestige to their universities and the NCAA, in courts of law, the NCAA is spending millions to launch a full-court press to deny college athletes’ basic rights to a real education, to their own images and likenesses, and to their health and safety. The NCAA’s ball is in the wrong court.
