Sept. 12: The NCAA, citing a commitment to fairness and inclusion, announces it would move seven championship events from the state of North Carolina. That included first- and second-round games for the NCAA men's basketball tournament that were slated for Greensboro, N.C., for March 17-19, 2017. It is in direct response to the state's passing of House Bill 2, also known as the "bathroom bill," which critics say discriminates against the LGBT community.

How did it go all right for South Carolina (much less talented team)?
Great coaching and player development!!!
People who should never be in charge of anything are in charge of everything (except where DJT has taken action).
The NCAA can just...oh, do something they find extremely punishing and unpleasant.
Reminds me of the movie Hoosiers. Duke sucks anyway.
According to ESPN Duke players didn’t know where to pee or how to pee. Standing, sitting or on one leg.
My wife a great sociologist said SC made 18 out of 20 FT in 3nd half. I’ll go with the old girl.
NCAA plays games in Cuba and China and then talks cheap about their commitment to “rights”.
yeah, that 3nd half was something!
Yup. Coach K is a lib and so is Roy Williams, coach of UNC. RW went psycho about Trump recently. All great teams win away from the comfort of home.
It was probably Greyson.
The ball must go in the basket for your team more than the opponents team. If your score is less than your opponents score at the end of regulation, you lose.
You would think that Duke would understand this.
Screw Coach K and Ol Roy. Two lib butt munches. Go Butler against UNC
Duke and North Carolina have played the vast majority of their 1st and 2nd round games within their state since forever.
It’s nice for them to find out how the “other half” lives.
It is the first time in a while Duke has had to play their opening games outside of North Carolina.
I guess Duke can't win if it plays away from it's friendly confines.
Greyson had a lot of negative energy aimed at him - he’s such a jerk! Still laughing, screwed with my bracket - don’t care.
You do know what we call selection Sunday in Nebraska?
We screwed the proverbial pooch when Frank was forced out at Kansas State. He was intense and got the very best out of his players and sometimes used words that weren’t meant for tv.
The man was as entertaining to watch as the game.
Now, we have a nice guy, a loser who doesn’t inspire the best from his players. Sheesh....
Did you see that player Jefferson complain over and over to the official? Big waste of energy.
Must have broken out the granny shots in that third half!
They do it just for PR and recruiting.
Can’t North Carolina pass a ban on the NCAA receiving any money generated by NCAA Schools in the state until the NCAA stops it’s punitive economic action?
States need to start going after the NCAA in every way possible. Levy a 75% privilege surcharge on any revenue going to the NCAA. After all the NCAA benefits from NC investments in infrastructure etc.
