SAN ANTONIO â€” Letâ€™s remove all the tradition and corresponding subplots from the equation.
Instead, letâ€™s delve into how Providence and North Carolina arrived at this particular juncture â€“ a second-round matchup in the NCAA Tournament thatâ€™s on tap Friday night (7:20 tip) at the AT&T Center.

SAN ANTONIO â€” Thereâ€™s no question that the NCAA Tournament is the equivalent of a Fortune 500 company. Between the 14-year, nearly $11 million television agreement that CBS and Turner Sports entered into back in 2010 and the presence of recognizable corporate sponsors such as AT&T and The Coca-Cola Company, it wouldnâ€™t come as a shock to learn that theyâ€™re printing money at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis.
The question is, just how big of a slice of mince pie do NCAA participants such as Providence receive?
