Oregon’s Sedona Prince shared her plans for the future of her career
If you follow along with March Madness, then you have heard the name Sedona Prince. She shined a spotlight on the NCAA’s inequitable treatment of the women’s and men’s March Madness Tournament.
it’s 2021 and we are still fighting for bits and pieces of equality. #ncaa #inequality #fightforchange
This brought a national spotlight to not only the women’s March Madness tournament but to Prince herself. She made headlines again when the Supreme Court of the United States ruled against the NCAA in Alston v NCAA, which ushered in the era of college athletes being able to monetize their own name, image and likeness.
Prince told Boardroom in 2022 that “with the help of her representation at Wasserman, she’s made north of $500,000 across 18 different business and partnership deals, with no plans of slowing down” after only one year after the Alston decision. She has deals with notable brands Crocs, Uninterrupted, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Champs, just to name a few.
With her ability to make money in college through her platform, she opted to stay at Oregon for the 2022-2023 season. However, a season-ending elbow injury cut the season short.

She graduated from the university in May 2022 and entered her name into the 2023 WNBA draft which takes place on April 10. It will be exclusively televised on ESPN from 7-9 p.m. EDT and available on the ESPN app.
However, in a short interview on March 11, Prince also revealed she wants to play in Athletes Unlimited basketball Season 3. With the way the seasons are structured, there is no conflict for athletes to play in the WNBA and in Athletes Unlimited.
While Prince’s college career was cut short, we could see her in the upcoming WNBA season and the upcoming Athletes Unlimited season. More Prince is good for all of us.
