Things just keep getting worse for the state of NC over HB2. The NCAA relocated all of their 2016-17 championships out of North Carolina in response to House Bill 2. The organization's public statement on the move cited a policy of fairness and inclusion.
This is an enormous loss for the southern state, accounting for 14.54% of the total HB2 losses to date.
"Fairness is about more than the opportunity to participate in college sports, or even compete for championships."
