Bathroom Bill Backlash: NCAA To Host Events In 'Inclusive' States Only
The NCAA announced it won't host events in places it deems have discriminatory laws. That could mean no more NCAA tournament games in North Carolina.By Grant Suneson | April 28, 2016
The NCAA is taking a stand against so-called "bathroom bills." And if you're not going to play by its rules, it's willing to take its ball and go home.
The NCAA board of governors announced Wednesday that any venue wanting to host a college sporting event needs to ensure that it can provide a discrimination-free environment.
And board chair Kirk Schulz apparently doesn't think states with bathroom bills can do that. "We need to make sure our student athletes are competing in venues and competing in states that have an inclusive environment for all of our student athletes, our fans and our coaches."
