Lessons in Hyphenation

Jon Chait on treating college athletics like a market:
the vast majority of college athletes have negative market value. A reform based on letting them capture their true market value is going to fail to protect the interests of the vast majority of college athletes. This includes not only every athlete in a sport other than football or men’s basketball (which of course includes all-female athletes), but also many of the players who participate in the most competitive football and basketball programs.
I'm no grammar maven, but I'm pretty sure that hyphen is misplaced.
