N.C.A.A. Drops Ban of Finals in New Jersey

The N.C.A.A. has lifted a recent ban against New Jersey colleges, allowing them to host tournament games or championships. The N.C.A.A. informed its member colleges of the decision in a memo after United States District Judge Michael Shipp issued a permanent injunction Thursday in Trenton barring New Jersey from offering sports betting in the state. Gov. Chris Christie signed a sports wagering law last year, but the N.C.A.A. and four major sports leagues challenged it. Carol Blazejowski, the associate vice president for university advancement at Montclair State, said she had received the N.C.A.A. memo.
