Commissioner Cathy Engelbert Sees NIL As ‘Huge Positive’ For WNBA

May 26, 2023

Commissioner Cathy Engelbert told Front Office Sports in an interview that NIL has been a “huge positive” for the WNBA and women’s sports.

While LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne ranks first among On3’s women’s NIL earnings list, college basketball players account for ten of the top-15 spots. “If you look at the Elite Eight teams last year, the men versus the women, four out of the top five NIL earners were women basketball players,” Engelbert added.
