Joining the Western Athletic Conference made solid financial sense for Stephen F. Austin State University despite increased travel for men’s and women’s basketball teams, Athletic Director Ryan Ivey told members of the Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday.

The university stands to net around $258,000 by moving from the Southland Conference to the WAC at the end of the academic year, Ivey said.
