Other sports organizations from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, to the NBA's Pacers to the PGA have all scrambled to tell the public that they oppose discrimination. (AP Photo/Michael Conroy, File)INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — As pressure builds for repeal or revision of Indiana's new religious objection law, the NCAA faces a decision about whether to call for next year's women's Final Four to find a new venue.
