“Discrimination”: Final Four Coaches Condemn Indiana Law

The coaches of the Final Four men's college basketball teams on Wednesday joined the NCAA in condemning Indiana's controversial new religious freedom law ahead of this weekend's games in Indianapolis, NBC News reported. "Each of us strongly supports the positions of the NCAA and our respective institutions on this matter — that discrimination of any kind should not be tolerated," said the statement from Kentucky's John Calipari, Michigan State's Tom Izzo, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and Wisconsin's Bo Ryan. Mark Emmert, the president of the Indianapolis-based NCAA, said on Monday that he was "deeply concerned" about the new law, which critics say could be used as a legal loophole to refuse service to gay customers on religious grounds.
