Kory Alford

Huntington University men’s basketball coach and assistant athletic director Kory Alford called the new NIL rules a “no-brainer.”

Last week ushered in a bold new era for college athletics after the Supreme Court struck down the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s rules prohibiting athletes from earning money.

In the case, NCAA v. Alston, several athletes filed a lawsuit against the NCAA claiming that the organization’s rules violated antitrust law. The court ruled unanimously in favor of the athletes, declaring that the NCAA’s prohibition on compensation for college athletes did in fact violate federal antitrust law.
