Unfortunately this is how some schools fund their athletic department.
In the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook preview of MVSU they write that all the guaranteed games will bring in 780,000 dollars to the athletic department. Sounds like they could really use it too, the preview also mentions that the gym floor sustained a crack in it last season, and as a result the team had to practice for a few days at a middle school.

It happens a lot with the SWAC (and similar level) schools. Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Savannah State come to mind. When one of those type of teams came in a few years ago, their coach said it was like their 14th straight road game out of 16 -- or some such ridiculous tally.
