Women’s basketball’s best talk NIL truths

March 28, 2024

Although one of the hottest topics in sports, NIL also is one of the most misunderstood. Bird, Ogwumike, Boston and Bueckers get to the truths about the impact of NIL on women’s college basketball. As Bueckers says during the conversation, “I think it’s interesting how everybody thinks they know everything and they think they know our private business.” Bird and Ogwumike, who hooped for UConn and Stanford, respectively, in the pre-NIL era, chat with Bueckers, who has signed several high-profile NIL deals during her tenure at UConn, and Boston, who experienced college basketball both with and without NIL during her time at South Carolina.
