Buckhorn urges NCAA to return in 2016

The NCAA women’s tournament has come and gone through Tampa (it was held April 3-5) but Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn saw an opportunity to keep it another year. The LGBT friendly mayor addressed a letter to NCAA president Mark Emmert on April 2 encouraging the organization to pull the 2016 tournament out of Indiana and return it to Tampa. “A championship host city should reflect that spirit of sport. Championship games held in the state of Indiana with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in effect can no longer do so.

No word on if the NCAA will take Buckhorn up on his 2016 offer.
