NCAA Lifts Ban on NJ Hosting Tournaments

The NCAA has lifted a recent ban against New Jersey schools being allowed to host tournament games or championships sanctioned by the sports governing body.

The NCAA informed its member schools of the decision in a memo after U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp in Trenton issued a permanent injunction Thursday, barring New Jersey from offering sports betting in the state.

Gov. Chris Christie signed a sports wagering law last year, but the NCAA and four major sports leagues challenged it.

Carol Blazejowski, the associate vice president for university advancement at Montclair State University, said she had received the NCAA memo.

The NCAA did not return calls and an email seeking comment. The memorandum, however, said that the New Jersey ban would be reinstated if the state successfully appeals Shipp’s ruling.
