  • Zags bringing in the Money for the WCC (Basketball Performance Fund)

    NCAA MEN's Tournament distribution process:

    • The NCAA receives approximately $800 million annually for the television rights to the tournament.

    • The majority of the cash is funneled to schools across multiple NCAA divisions through an assortment of funds.

    • One of those is the Basketball Performance Fund, which allocates dollars based on success in the tournament.

    • Each game played is worth one unit to that team’s conference.

    • The units are pooled and carried forward for six years.

    • Each unit has a dollar value, which increases every year of the payout cycle.

    The units will be carried for six years at the following payout amounts:

    2022: $338,211 (per unit)2023: $339,989 2024: $341,802 2025: $348,275 2026: $358,375 2027: $307,409

    (The amount drops in ’27 because the 2020 tournament, for which there were zero units awarded, is removed from the payout cycle; that increases the total number of units in the pool and reduces the value of each unit, according to the NCAA.)

    Add it up, and each unit earned this month is worth $2,034,061 over the six years.

    Wasn’t one of the big items zags negotiated to stay in the wcc a more favorable split of the funds?!

    So, 5 units for the zags = $10m

      That's correct. I put together an analysis of NCAA payouts 4-5 years ago, based on a Forbes article. I'll try and find the article.

      ETA: the best article came from Bloomberg.

      The difference is likely to be much more pronounced based on our team's incredible last 5 years.

        just reviewed updated bracket and counted 18 games played for the Big10 after their record high 9 bids (naked eye count, maybe I missed one or two)

        they are below .500 in those games. How could the committee be so off target?

          These other teams need to spend their share to improve their teams.

            I'll bet that Portland used some of that to upgrade the coaching staff.

              They always pump up the big-10. This is the way it always is the big-10 and acc. That is espn at their best.

                I will agree with that. Just maybe he can upgrade their program as well.
