More HB2 fallout: NCAA announces new sites for events removed from NC

ncaaCNN Money reports that alternate locations for the NCAA championship games pulled from North Carolina in response to HB2 have been announced. It turns out that North Carolina will be losing out to California, Georgia, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Here’s the list:

— 2016 Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, College Cup, Dec. 2 and 4: Moved from Cary to San Jose, California

— 2016 Division III Men’s and Women’s Soccer Championships, Dec. 2 and 3: Moved from Greensboro to Salem, Virginia

— 2017 Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, first/second-rounds, March 17 and 19: Moved from Greensboro to Greenville, South Carolina

— 2017 Division I Women’s Golf Championships, regional, May 8-10: Moved from Greenville to Athens, Georgia

— 2017 Division III Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships, May 22-27: Moved from Cary to Chattanooga, Tennessee

— 2017 Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championship, May 26 and 28: Moved from Cary to Boston

— 2017 Division II Baseball Championship, May 27-June 3: Moved from Cary to Grand Prairie, Texas.

Meanwhile, conservative politicians continue to badmouth the NCAA while claiming that HB2 is having no real impact on the state’s economy. Sigh….
