NCAA vs. Student Athletes: Are Athletes Fairly Compensated?
Jun 1st, 2021 by Legally Brief
On March 31, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of NCAA vs. Alston.
The Court is expected to issue a decision that will touch on a number of issues that affect NCAA Division I student athletes. For years, Division I football and basketball players, a majority of whom are African American, have pushed for the:
- NCAA to provide a more equitable share of the billions of dollars generated by athletes;
- use of athlete name, image and likeness; and
- ability to fully engage in academics.
The NCAA, maintains that student athletes are amateurs who are already fairly compensated.
