Colgate is not giving any payday to UConn. That is not the issue at all. UConn sought out this game, after Syracuse was afraid to play them, as Breanna Stewart's homecoming. Geno has a relationship with Nicci since his best friend in coaching is DePaul's coach, Doug Bruno.

FWIW, season tickets for home UConn games in the upper deck - much worse than anything in Cotterell - are $160 for eight games, i.e. $20 per game.
