UA Hoops Ranked Fourth Most 'Valuable' College Program

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 12:58 PM

Arizona's men's basketball team may have only made it to the Sweet 16 in this year's NCAA tournament, but an annual survey of college hoops programs' overall value considers the Wildcats to be a Final Four contender.

A professor from Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (say that five times fast) has ranked Arizona No. 4 on a list of men's basketball programs in terms of overall net worth, putting the UA at a value of $224.1 million if it were to be bought and sold.

The only programs ahead of Arizona: NCAA finalist Louisville ($291 million), Kansas ($259.3 million) and North Carolina ($228.6 million).

The Wall Street Journal only listed the top 10 programs, the other nine of which are all east of the Rocky Mountains.

So, there's that for UA fans hoping to cling onto something associated to the basketball season for just a little bit longer...
