The Syracuse men's soccer team (3-2-0) continues its four-game homestand when it hosts former BIG EAST rival and current American Athletic Conference foe Connecticut (2-1-1) on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. at the SU Soccer Stadium.

From government Title IX documents, the magazine determined that the Orange basketball program reported $25,888,761 million dollars in revenue in 2011-12. Fair's estimated value to the school was 50 percent of that total divided by 13, the number of scholarships offered on an NCAA men's basketball team. Gregory then subtracted the value of Fair's room and board of just more than $52,000.
