The NCAA has been forced to relocate several championships from New Jersey because of a new state law allowing sports wagering on professional and collegiate games.
The five championships, all scheduled in 2013, include the Division I Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, Diving Regionals (Piscataway, March 14-17), Division I Women’s Basketball Championship, Trenton Regional (Trenton, March 30-April 2), Division III Men’s Volleyball Championship (Hoboken, April 26-28) and the Division II and III Women’s Lacrosse Championships (Montclair, May 18-19).
