| No Comments

The Gophers men's basketball team finished 16th out of 339 NCAA schools in revenue for the 2009-10 season, generating almost $14 million.
The team made a profit of $8 million for the University after subtracting $5.7 million in expenses.
"I'd say this is pretty consistent with recent years," said Regina Sullivan, Associate Department Director for Basketball, according to the Minnesota Daily. "We've definitely seen an uptick in revenue since Tubby Smith's tenure."
2009-10 national champion Duke University generated the most revenue, at $26.5 million.
The Big Ten had six of the top-16 money-makers in the country. Michigan State, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Indiana all out-earned the Gophers.
The Gophers ranked 24th in attendance, with an average of13,241 fans.
"Our goal has been to always have Williams Arena be filled for our games," Sullivan said. "We've been able to do that for many years, and we're working our way back to getting close to that goal for this coming year."
