"Gov. Andrew Cuomo nixes Albany basketball game at Duke over North Carolina's HB2 law"
"Syracuse, N.Y. — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's stance against North Carolina House Bill 2 law has forced the cancellation of a basketball game between Albany and Duke.
Steve Wiseman of the Durham Herald-Sun reported Wednesday that Duke's previously-scheduled home game against Albany on Nov. 12 had been removed from the Blue Devils' schedule.
The Albany-Duke game at Cameron Indoor Stadium was scheduled as part of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Tip Off Tournament.
However, in March of 2016, the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 2, which is a law that stipulates that transgender people must use the bathroom corresponding with their birth gender, in government buildings, schools and universities, while also not allowing lesbian, gay and transgendered people to sue for discrimination in state courts.
After the law was passed, Gov. Cuomo responded with an executive order, banning any state-sponsored, non-essential travel to North Carolina.
Albany, as a member school in the State University of New York (SUNY) system, is subject to Cuomo's travel ban.
In addition to Albany's basketball game at Duke, the school's field hockey team will not play games at North Carolina and Duke that had been previously scheduled."
