NC’s HB2 Law Causes Lady Tarheels December Game 

The HB2 law has cost another team to lose an opponent for this upcoming basketball season. The North Carolina women’s basketball team has lost Vermont as their opponent on December 28. 

“The decision to cancel to our Dec. 28 women’s basketball game at North Carolina was made as a result of concerns over the HB2 law, which prevents transgender people from using government-run bathrooms based on their gender identity,” Vermont athletic director Jeff Schulman said.
The decision was made after the coaches, team and school officials consulted with each other. 
“We fully understand and sympathize with the impact that this decision may have on the North Carolina women’s basketball schedule,” Schulman said. “However, we believe this decision is consistent with our values and the conversations with our coaches and student team members. These were the most important considerations.”

UNC was giving Vermont $17,500 plus 12 hotel room and three meals for their trip to Chapel Hill. 

This adds to the NBA All-Star game and Duke losing Albany as an opponent in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament.
