NCAA rules North Carolina can host title games after HB2 repeal

In its statement, the NCAA called the new law "far from perfect." The NCAA didn't lobby for a specific change in the law, but was hoping for a full repeal.

In the statement, the NCAA said: 

"In the end, a majority on the NCAA Board of Governors reluctantly voted to allow consideration of championship bids in North Carolina by our committees that are presently meeting. The NCAA championships previously awarded to North Carolina for 2017-18 will remain in the state."

The NCAA currently is considering sites for its championship events through 2022, something that was mentioned many times during the repeal discussions in the state legislature.

The ACC already said it would return to North Carolina after moving its football championship game from Charlotte to Orlando, Florida. 

The ACC men's basketball tournament is back in Brooklyn in 2018, but is supposed to return to Greensboro and Charlotte the subsequent two years.
