And then there were three!
It is with great pride that the NIL Store enters the NCAA Final Four weekend with three partner schools vying for a National Championship.
And on the women’s side, Virginia Tech women’s basketball sits two wins away from capturing its first-ever National Championship.
The weekend marks the culmination of an incredible month at the NIL Store powered by Campus Ink, where we’ve reached unprecedented heights in reaching new audiences in the name of earning our athletes as much money as they can.
We kicked off the month of “Merch” with the conference tournaments, as all 15 schools in our network (30 men’s and women’s basketball teams) were still alive.
By the following weekend, we entered the NCAA Tournament with 19 men’s and women’s basketball teams across 13 schools.
It was a far cry from year one, when our hopes and dreams rested on the shoulders of solely the Illinois men’s basketball team!
By next week we will have finalized our full transition into “spring sport mode,” but, for now, enjoy this last weekend of the greatest show on television.
We know we sure will!
Go UConn NIL Store. Go SDSU NIL Store. Go Hokies NIL Store!
