They don't want WNIT games in a place like Mem Gym, the only place that


would make sense, given the small crowd that would come. Maybe use U-Hall. But JPJ requires probably 150-200 workers to staff all the stations---ushers, parking, concessions, tickets, cleaners, security---even with the smallest crowd. It's just not worth it.
It's not beneath the women's programs at NCST & UNC to use smaller, older arenas for their women's teams. But apparently UVA won't consider it here and doesn't mind losing money on each women's game at JPJ. No sense adding to the losses with a WNIT team.
