NCAA reveals future March Madness sites (NCAA)

The sites for the 2019-2022 NCAA Tournaments were revealed on Tuesday. This not only goes for men’s basketball, but EVERYTHING as well. The Big East will have representatives in 2019 (Georgetown), 2020 (Creighton, St. John’s/The conference itself at MSG), 2021 (Providence) and 2022 (Marquette). However, there’s a bit of an issue.

North Carolina was awarded multiple NCAA events (Outsports)

The reason NC was stripped of events was due to the anti-LGBT HB2 law that was put in place. That, of course, was replaced by HB142, which wasn’t exactly a full replacement and remains anti-LGBT. In turn, the NCAA has found a way to bring upon more criticism for their handling of this, and that is likely to turn up even further.
