UConn president tells coach Kevin Ollie he can't travel to Indy meeting

Connecticut men's basketball coach Kevin Ollie and his staff will not travel to the Final Four in Indianapolis this week.

UConn President Susan Herbst announced the decision Tuesday night, reacting to Indiana's controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the subsequent travel ban for State of Connecticut employees issued by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Monday.

"In support of Governor Malloy's travel ban to the state of Indiana, Kevin Ollie and other members of the UConn men's basketball staff will not travel to Indianapolis for the NCAA Final Four and events surrounding it," Herbst said in a statement. "UConn is a community that values all of our members and treats each person with the same degree of respect, regardless of their background and beliefs and we will not tolerate any other behavior."

MOre..

People like Gov Malloy and Coach Ollie are serious and they're not playin' around.

Thank you, Riff!
