This is because the athletes that come to the university are now a walking advertisement. If a school sends many multiple people pro in sports every year then they will be more likely to land the big name recruits and therefore the school will make money off of that player helping his team to a championship. These are all reasons why college athletes should be paid. To conclude, college athletes deserve more. Yes they are given scholarships, yes they are given an opportunity to change their situation and their future.
They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt.
Some are from the best of the best players; from the elite players to the gifted players. According to http://www.ncaa.org, 3.4% of the high school basketball athletes are selected and move on to play in college. Clearly, the athletes spend most of their time-playing and practicing to make it to an NCAA basketball team. They learn how to perfect their skills and talents. On the other hand, how many high school basketball athletes do you know that actually make it to an NCAA basketball team?
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--Syracuse and UConn are no strangers to playing each other. The former Big East foes have met 49 times over the years and the two teams will square off for the National Championship on Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. For Breanna Stewart and the Huskies, they are searching for their fourth straight title. If UConn (37-0) can pull off the victory, it would be the first time in Division I women 's basketball that such a feat has been accomplished. Only UCLA, with seven in a row from 1967-73, has done it on the men 's side.
The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games. The team, the school, and the community were all very excited. We wanted to win a state championship. Everyone knew winning a state championship was going to be very difficult however because Stanberry was another undefeated team in another conference and on the other side of the playoff bracket. Stanberry was winning many blowout games like we were but everyone was saying how much harder the teams they were playing were.
College basketball player should be paid for these reasons they put their bodies at risk, they don’t have money, and they skip classes for basketball.

Athletes are prominent figures in today’s society, serving as role models for many who watch their every move. For these individuals, their notoriety is tied to fans, endorsement deals and organizations they are associated with, making it even more crucial to abstain from activity that would taint their image. Although it is ideal for them to be seen in a positive light, controversy involving these figures often arises and is not uncommon. An athlete’s actions, both personal and professional, are now inseparable in a society where media prevalence has great influence on their lives. This especially was the case for star athletes, Michael Vick and Tiger Woods, who were entangled into unfavorable activities.
Even though I lost I knew I had gotten into his head mentally because I didn’t see him since he ran into the locker room mad because I had embarrassed him and since he knew he was very lucky to get the win. Since I knew I had one or two more chance to wrestle Nerine in the state tournament in two weeks I felt I had brought him down a little bit mentally which I could use to my
As an athlete in one of these clubs the insanity of the work out, practice, game, and traveling is a complete start to a college athlete life. These coaches are also more serious about not only the game but their athletes. In the article “Ex-College Coach Explains Why High School Sports Should Die” in Forbes Len Stevens states that “Club sports can provide better opportunities for scholarships, but they can’t replicate that feeling of playing for something bigger than yourself.” They might not be able to replicate the feeling of playing for something bigger such as a league or state title, but if you are a serious athlete and you want to take your career somewhere club or AAU is the way to go. Yes, AAU and Club teams do cost more money than playing on a high school team but these athletes have the skill and passion more about the sport than most high school athletes. These coaches help the athletes throughout the whole entire year, they help you reach the next level, they are concerned about feelings and the way they are doing in school.
This is a big issue today in college sports. The NCAA thinks coaches are paying top ranked high school players to go play for their team.

Throughout the entire match, whether he was on the perimeter, or in the paint, the Buckeyes ability to find the open man was unmatched. Ohio State’s unselfishness on the floor was one of the many forces behind their big-time win. Even though his may be the Buckeye’s first Big Ten win, they do have potential. Ohio State fell to Purdue, a top team in the conference this year, by just one point earlier this season. However, that loss and this win were both played in front of a home crowd.
It 's that magical time of year again when we step out of "March Madness" into "April Amazement." Amazement at the talents of the final four teams, that is! Watching the games over the weekend, it occurred to me that the NCAA Basketball Tournament is a classic study on what it takes to reach the highest levels of performance in a highly competitive environment - one that is not unlike today 's business world. Just like the final four teams, companies need to have talented people, leaders who can take charge, organizational balance and depth, clearly defined roles, and excellent strategies and plans. Talented people are the main ingredient in a successful business, just as gifted players are the key to a winning team.
This could still happen if players feel that they have been mistreated, which is why players should not be allowed to unionize. The main reason players should not be allowed to unionize is players could get whatever they want if they went on strike. A nationwide strike of NCAA athletes would not only upset the school, but also the millions of people who watch college sports every year. Besides making masses of people upset a strike would lose millions of dollars of revenue for schools, affecting the whole school not just the athletes. “This threat has to do with the position of these so-called "premier" sports as part of a continuing and dramatic revolution in the culture of sport in America(Hearn)”.
