NCAA returns events to NC after state rolls back LGBT law

The last time Rupp hosted an NCAA tournament game was in 2013.

The organization announced on Tuesday that it had awarded men's basketball tournament games in 2020 and 2021 to the state, along with several other championship events, reports the Associated Press.

The organization pulled championships from the state a year ago in response to HB2.

Warriors beat Trail Blazers, Wizards defeat Hawks
If you're out there just gonna let a guy say something to you then you probably shouldn't really be out there. The Blazers' starting backcourt accounted for 69 percent of their scoring and made 70 percent of their shots.

Ahead of the NCAA announcement, UNC began advertising that the NCAA March Madness is coming to Charlotte, North Carolina. The basketball subregionals were either going to be a 3/1 or 2/2 split between North and SC, and Greenville, S.C., won out in 2022 over Charlotte.

HRC has submitted FOIA requests to North Carolina public universities, requesting all communications related to their bid requests for NCAA events - including all materials related to the non-discrimination questionnaires required by the NCAA Board of Governors to host NCAA events.

The NCAA awarded men's basketball subregionals to North Carolina in 2020 and 2021 on Tuesday after the state recently repealed controversial law HB2.

Trump calls for reform of temporary worker visa program
President Donald Trump has signed an executive order directing federal agencies to propose changes to the H-1B program. And any changes to the work visa process in the United States is bad news for India's $150bn IT service industry.

The same day the bathroom law was repealed, NCAA President Mark Emmert addressed the subject in his news conference ahead of the men's Final Four in Glendale, Arizona, noting that North Carolina is rich in college sports tradition. "When the NCAA originally withdrew events from North Carolina, they did so because they claimed to care about "fairness and inclusion" for college athletes and fans". HB 142 also says that local governments can not pass ordinances protecting LGBT people - or anyone else - from discrimination in employment or public places until 2020. In a basketball-crazed state, losing events such as the NBA all-star game and big NCAA tournament games was also a blow to residents' pride.

The state responded by issuing a repeal of the bill. "It's a shame to see that those concerns have already fallen by the wayside".

We will, of course, host first and second round March Madness games next year. "This is the time, while it is still fresh in the minds of North Carolinians, to move aggressively forward with HB328, the Athletic Associations Accountability Act, and other similarly proposed bills to expose the hypocrisy in their policies, the abuse of athletes and athletics for money, the ignoring of or inaction from violations of academic standards and the inexcusable use of economic extortion as a way to force the will of the NCAA and/or the ACC". Equality NC also expressed dismay at the NCAA's decisions.

Radulov helps Canadiens beat Rangers 3-1 for series lead
Montreal took Game 3 of the series on Sunday with a 3-1 victory. "It's nice to have your best player as your goalie", Ott said. A few tweaks for Game 4 at Madison Square Garden are in store for what could be the turning point night in the series .

The organization emerged as a major power broker in the push to repeal HB2, repeatedly telling lawmakers that failing to take the law off the books would result in North Carolina not hosting championship events through at least 2022. HB2 is off the books, but critics say the replacement law still allows the state to discriminate against the LGBT community. "They got pushed by Roy Cooper instead and they succumbed to his political pressure", said Equality NC's Chris Sgro.
