Kevin Tresolini, Wilmington News Journal: The NCAA barred Delaware member schools from hosting playoff football games along with postseason events in any other sport because the state is about to implement legalized single-game sports betting. The move came a day after a federal district court denied an injunction request filed by the NCAA and the four major pro sports leagues, all of whom have sued Delaware to stop its sports betting operation. A spokesman for governor Jack Markell called the NCAA's action "retaliatory," adding that "this new policy only serves to punish the very students the NCAA claims to be trying to protect."
