They do?

Duquesne has more money then Penn State? Bishop McCort has more money than Richland?

Great comparison between Penn State and Duquesne, clearly similar schools. How about Duquesne with a more similarly-sized school like say Loch Haven? Some of these PSAC state schools can barely pay their bills let alone invest in a secondary sport like baseball.

Your comparison is also flawed by your own logic. Duquesne is three times the size of Lock Haven in terms of enrollment. You would be better off comparing Mount Aloysius or Saint Francis to Lock Haven.

Well your initial comparison is flawed.  What does $15 have to do with Catholic schools?  If Gannon, Mercyhurst, and Seton Hill missed the tournament and Clarion, IUP, Cal replaces them.....
Guess what the ticket prices would be....15 dollars.

Gannon is going home. So is West Chester.

Seton Hill is looking good. Hopefully many of their players will find their way on to a Johnstown AAABA entry.

Villanova won the men’s NCAA basketball tournament. Notre Dame won the women’s tournament. The Catholics are struggling in Major League Baseball. The San Diego Padres are last in the NL Westbat 14-24.

I bet the Catholic colleges in the PSAC are struggling to attract students. Tuition is about twice as much as it is at UPJ and the 14 state colleges. I visited Gannon and Slippery Rock last fall. Slippery Rock has much nicer dorms.

Slippery Rock-Bloomsburg.  There aren’t 75 fans at the game.

What initial comparison??? I made two separate unrelated posts about the admission price and that the private PSACs may have a financial advantage over the State schools. Sorry if that was misleading, I'm just getting by with a public school education over here.

Glad to see that the Tribune actually acknowledged that the tourney is here today.

I really have no idea why the PSAC would have this tournament in Johnstown.  Not to many locals want to go to Johnstown anymore for anything.  Altoona would've been a better location.

Scheduling.  The Point is always available. It is the home field of a member school.  And I bet it is one of the lowest cost options.
