I don't think anyone is assuming a P5 tournament would be better and bring


more eyeballs. I think the assumption is that a P5-only tournament, even if dealing with a smaller pie, would give P5 schools much larger slices of that pie than the current model does.

Higgins's thinking is that right now, P5 hoops programs are diluting their financial power by giving virtually half of the golden goose to the NCAA to run its entire operations, and another huge chunk to the other 27 conferences. As a consequence, Huggins has to fly to Provo and Ames...assuming the Big XII stays a P5 conference at all.
