As college student-athletes across the country continue their fight for fair compensation, the Supreme Court of the United States handed them a big win for their efforts.

In a 9-0 unanimous decision on Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States upheld a lower court's ruling from 2018 and called into question the NCAA's stance on restricting educational-related benefits of college athletes in the name of "amateurism'.

Of all the Justices who weighed in, Justice Brett Kavanaugh issued the most scathing rebuke of the NCAA's current business model.

"The bottom line is that the NCAA and its member colleges are suppressing the pay of student athletes who collectively generate billions of dollars in revenues for colleges every year," wrote Kavanaugh. "Those enormous sums of money flow to seemingly everyone except the student athletes. College presidents, athletic directors, coaches, conference commissioners, and NCAA executives take in six- and seven-figure salaries. Colleges build lavish new facilities. But the student athletes who generate the revenues, many of whom are African-American and from lower-income backgrounds, end up with little or nothing."
