Providence 11th in Basketball Expenses

Posted: January 12, 2010 in Big East, Miscellaneous

The U.S. Department of Education reported the basketball expenses for the 16 BIG EAST teams in the 2008-2009 season. At the top of the list was Marquette who had $10,306,548 inexpenses.  At the bottom was South Florida with $2,927,362.  Providence was listed at 11th with $4,637,423 in expenses.

Looking at the list it is a decently apparent correlation between the caliber of team and the expenses.  Most of the heavy hitters were near the top.  Syracuse, UConn, Louisville and Georgetown all were in the top five while the bottom dwellers: USF, Rutgers, and DePaul were the bottom three.  There were a few surprises in our opinions.  For one we were surprised that Marquette has almost 2 million more dollars in expenses than the next nearest school, Louisville.  We were also surprised that Notre Dame was 12th.  They have had better success than the other teams around them… we would have thought the spending would have been higher.  As far as Providence goes, it is about where we would have imagined we suppose.  Maybe we would have pictured them a little lower.
