Would suspect Greenville SC as possible and most likely alternative due to fairly central location and neutral court. Probably depends on availability of arena though. Other possibilities may include Myrtle Beach or Charleston, SC, Augusta GA. Not a lot of options though. As for HB2, can we get some adults in the room?

Interesting to note that South Carolina and Georgia (and Tennessee) are states that have sued the Obama administration over the transgender bathroom directive.

Move the tournament to Mexico or Canada?

I applaud these organizations for pulling their business out of NC.

As a female, mother of a gay son and friend and ally of the LGTBQ community, I think you have no idea what you are talking about.

Please oh PLEASE tell me how to successfully enforce HB2. It's a BS attempt at blatant discrimination that cannot be enforced without some form of "potty police".

The commissioner said today that the decision would ultimately be made by the universities presidents and chancellors in the coming week. I bet we stay in Asheville.

Agreed.

The bathroom laws are a "solution" in search of a problem. Unnecessary and unenforceable - nobody's really going to post inspectors at bathroom doors, are they? So at bottom, just a way of stigmatizing people that some folks don't like, and playing on people's fears.

I applaud marxists for outing themselves.

Riiiiiight, because letting people choose what bathroom to use has always been a big Marxist thing. Just look at all the freedoms that gay and trans people have in China or Cuba.

But that's mostly what this is about - labelling and name calling.

Sad, but perhaps predictable, that this issue draws more interest than, say, the women's basketball team.

Use the reverse economic argument -- that the SoCon don't have the big bucks to travel here and there, plus -- they're glad to help the western NC economy by staying in Asheville, an already all welcoming city.

I applaud healthy debate where diverging ideas are respected and welcomed.
