Gonzaga players celebrate after the semifinals of the Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament against South Carolina, on April 1, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. Gonzaga won 77-73.  David J. Phillip—APThe "buts." Gonzaga University, a small Jesuit school out in Spokane, Wash., that will play for the NCAA men's basketball championship on Monday night against North Carolina, can't stop hearing the "buts." Gonzaga's a good basketball team, but ... the Bulldogs play in the West Coast Conference, a league that toils outside the football-driven "Power 5" conference structure. They've never made the Final Four (until this season). They're not-battle tested. They're nervous.Since 1999, when Gonzaga made a Cinderella run to the Elite Eight, the Gonzaga has oozed excellence. They've made the NCAA tou

ncaa decision on north carolina hb2 repeal: what it means

General view of the NCAA logo on the floor during action at University of Dayton Arena on March 20, 2013 in Dayton, Ohio. Joe Robbins—Getty ImagesThe NCAA announced on Tuesday that the deal was good enough.After more than a year of controversy in North Carolina over HB2, a law widely viewed as discriminatory toward LGBT people, Republican lawmakers and the state's new Democratic governor reached a deal to repeal it last week. And the NCAA, which had joined many businesses in boycotting the state over the measure, "reluctantly" said that North Carolina could again be considered as a host for college championship games. The new law, which removed the requirement that transgender people use bathrooms that match birth certificates but still blocks local protections for LGBT people, "minimally

ncaa: north carolina brise le rêve de gonzaga et de tillie

North Carolina, ancienne université du légendaire Michael Jordan, s'est offert le titre NCAA pour la sixième fois de son histoire après 1957, 1982, 1993, 2005 et 2009. Les "Tar Heels" ont surtout effacé leur désillusion de la finale 2016 où ils s'étaient inclinés de justesse face à Villanova (77-74). Cette finale indécise, disputée devant 77.000 spectateurs, a basculé en faveur de North Carolina à trente secondes de la sirène grâce à un panier d'Isaiah Hicks puis un contre de Kennedy Meeks. Pour sa première participation à une finale NCAA, Gonzaga, qui avait abordé cette finale avec un bilan impressionnant de 37 victoires en 38 matches, a viré en tête à la pause (35-32).

Roy Cooper signed it into law. Aiken is a native of Raleigh, North Carolina, and was the 2014 Democratic nominee in the state's 2nd congressional district election.When HB2 was passed last March under former Gov.

north carolina's 'bathroom bill' to cost $3.76 billion

Despite Republican assurances that North Carolina's "bathroom bill" isn't hurting the economy, the law limiting LGBT protections will cost the state more than $3.76 billion in lost business over a dozen years, according to an Associated Press analysis.Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled plans for a PayPal facility that would have added an estimated $2.66 billion to the state's economy to a canceled Ringo Starr concert that deprived a town's amphitheater of about $33,000 in revenue. The blows have landed in the state's biggest cities as well as towns surrounding its flagship university, and from the mountains to the coast.North Carolina could lose hundreds of millions more because the NCAA is avoiding the state, usually a favored host.

They also can offer lessons on how to lead high-performing teams, according to Pam Borton, who coached the University of Minnesota women's team for 12 years."You can't lead the same way you did decades ago," said Borton, who was fired in 2014 after failing for five consecutive years to take the team to t

north carolina: 'bathroom law' repeal clears senate

Unisex signs hang outside bathrooms at Toast Paninoteca on May 10, 2016 in Durham, North Carolina.  Sara D. Davis—Getty Images(RALEIGH, N.C.) — A compromise that would repeal North Carolina's contentious "bathroom law" cleared a key hurdle Thursday when senators approved the measure, which is intended to help stem the financial backlash from the law limiting LGBT protections.Not everyone is pleased with the deal between the Republican-controlled Legislature and the Democratic governor. Social conservatives would prefer to have House Bill 2 stay on the books. Gay rights groups believe the replacement bill allows discrimination.Sen. Dan Bishop, a primary sponsor of HB2, denounced the new deal on the Senate floor."This bill is at best a punt, at worst a betrayal of principle," said the Republ

in north carolina, the end of an error?

It was just last year that city officials in Charlotte approved a broad anti-discrimination measure, which included protections that allowed people to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity. With remarkable speed and efficiency, then-Gov. Pat McCrory (R) and the Republican-led state legislature swiftly approved an LGBT state law, HB 2, to undo what Charlotte had done.GOP officials were woefully unprepared for the culture-war backlash, which by some estimates, ended up costing the state dearly. It also contributed to Pat McCrory losing his job – the Tar Heel State Republican was the only incumbent governor in either party to lose in 2016.The current effort in North Carolina is cleaning up the mess. NBC News confirmed that state policymakers have reached an agreement to repeal t

"I don't know if he can beat them one on one," Ball says, conceding the NBA stars are stronger than his son, the Pac-12 player of the year and an expected top pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
