Congrats to the NCAA

For those not in the US, the NCAA is the National Collegiate Athletic Association. It is the governing body of our College and University Athletic Departments - which are a MASSIVE part of the US Higher Education system (both in participation, school body cohesion and money making).

This week the NCAA pulled 7 championship events out of North Carolina for the 2016 / 2017 school year system. This is due to HB2. Now, North Carolina Republicans want to pretend this is a bathroom rights bill - but it is vastly more - and the NCAA (pronounced NC2A or NC-doubleA) explains how much more very simply below (points 1 & 3).

If you want to know what was pulled: the list follows.  If you want to know how this effects North Carolina, well Basketball is just a small step below Religion in North Carolina (link link link).

As ABC 11 notes, there are 7 championship events that will be pulled from North Carolina as a result of the NCAA’s decision:
2016 Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, College Cup (Cary), Dec. 2 and 4.
2016 Division III Men’s and Women’s Soccer Championships (Greensboro), Dec. 2 and 3.
2017 Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, first/second rounds (Greensboro), March 17 and 19.
2017 Division I Women’s Golf Championships, regional (Greenville), May 8-10.
2017 Division III Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships (Cary), May 22-27.
2017 Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championship (Cary), May 26 and 28.
2017 Division II Baseball Championship (Cary), May 27-June 3.
