FILE - In this May 27, 2015, file photo, workers at Lucas Oil Stadium install the court in Indianapolis as they prepare to host the men's NCAA Final Four college basketball games on April 4 and 6, 2015.

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.
