"And this new law restores the state to that legal landscape: a landscape similar to other jurisdictions presently hosting NCAA championships".

Mount Olive and Cary will host the Division II Baseball Championship in 2019 through 2022.

The NCAA previously selected the following sites to host Final Fours: San Antonio (2018), Minneapolis (2019), Atlanta (2020), Indianapolis (2021) and New Orleans (2022). The venue has hosted 63 NCAA men's tournament games, which is fifth most in tournament history. Under HB 142, North Carolina universities are prohibited from ensuring LGBTQ participants and spectators are protected from discrimination during university events. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community. The ACLU has done the same and filed an FOIA request.

Rights groups criticized the NCAA for returning to North Carolina while its cities were still banned from passing anti-discrimination laws.

The NCAA had said earlier.

"In the end", the organization said, "a majority on the NCAA Board of Governors reluctantly voted to allow consideration of championship bids in North Carolina by our committees that are presently meeting".

The horrific saga between Wyatt and Orton is still continuing and will culminate with the House of Horrors match for the title. Finally, United STates champion Kevin Owens was ready to compete...against anyone who wasn't a seasoned veteran of Smackdown.

"These events are great opportunities to showcase remarkable student athletes, provide an arena for fans to celebrate our state's proud tradition of collegiate sports, and spur economic activity across our communities and the state".

HB2 ordered that people at a government-run facility must use bathrooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate. HB 142 was not an eradication of the principles laid out in HB 2.

It stated events already awarded to North Carolina for the 2017-18 sports season - including men's basketball tournament games in Charlotte - would remain in place.

If North Carolina did not get a bid Tuesday, experts said it could've caused the state at least $250 million over the next five years.

The NCAA has long established a precedent for punishment in regard to discrimination. Greensboro Coliseum has hosted 63 NCAA men's tournament games, which is fifth most in tournament history. The gap was, in part, because the state of SC was shut out from any NCAA hosting opportunities until the Confederate Flag was removed from its State House. I think we can be a force for change.
