SoCon tournaments may be moved from North Carolina
Just heard on WJHL that the Southern Conference is considering moving its championships from North Carolina because of its bathroom law.

If they move basketball from Asheville, they can forget me attending. I'm sick of people and organizations dumping on North Carolina for a statute passed by its legislature. Just play ball.

This is the trendy thing to do at the moment.

Stay strong NC.

Blame Pat McCrory for refusing to back off a stupid law that was secretly passed. He's going to lose his job in November over this and he doesn't care. Everyone in NC hates him.

I've been to tournament in Charleston (SC), Greensboro, Greenville (SC), Chattanooga and Asheville. Charleston isn't bad but Asheville is by far the best location and our fans travel there very well.

I hope it remains in Asheville!

I hope it stays in Asheville as well. Great town and great trip. (My favorite pizza place is there!)

In looking around the league footprint and checking arenas/availability, there aren't many options out there. Greenville would be nice, but the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament is going on the same time. The Gwinnett Center near Atlanta has open dates that week/weekend.

Didn't the league just sign a new deal with Asheville to keep the tourney there through 2025 or something? If there's a buyout, it could be astronomical to do so this early in the deal. I would just let this blow over and get replaced by the next big kerfuffle that will inevitably come along from somewhere, and STAY in Asheville.

Will the NCAA, ACC, and maybe SoCon be boycotting Target for backing off it's initial potty policy? Maybe the NC law makes some sense in that men are in women's dressing rooms taking photos of women at Target stores (probably the real reason Target is revising its policy -- potential law suits). Would male leaders of the NCAA, ACC etc want their wives and children exposed to this sort of thing?

My belief is that politics (on both sides) should stay out of athletics. These moves are intended on forcing the state to change their law- and that is not what the goal of an athletic entity should be. Let's play basketball and let the politician argue about the laws.
