On Monday, the US Supreme Court ruled against the NCAA's efforts to keep limits on paying student athletes.

In a unanimous 9-0 ruling, the highest court in the land determined that "NCAA's curbs on non-cash payments to college athletes related to education - including benefits such as computers, science equipment and musical instruments - are anticompetitive under a federal law called the Sherman Antitrust Act," according to Reuters.

Last year, the US Circuit Court of Appeals found that the NCAA's rules were anticompetitive.

College athletes have filed numerous lawsuits against the NCAA over the years, alleging that the governing body for university sports has long maintained a form of "unlawful restraint of trade" while making billions of dollars in revenue.
