The Morning Dish – Wednesday, April 4, 2018

by - Published April 4, 2018 in The Morning Dish

One day after Villanova’s national championship game win over Michigan, the NCAA received a harsh reminder of the price it paid and continues to pay for TV contract decisions for its prize NCAA Tournament.
