The NCAA has gotten a TON of backlash as a result of the controversy over the disparity in it's handling of the NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament. From the food, to the workout facilities, to the COVID testing, the NCAA was called out multiple times for not treating all of it's athletes equally.
Now Dick's Sporting Goods has stepped in and announced they are sending "truckloads of fitness equipment" to the women's teams in the NCAA Tourney in San Antonio. Their official twitter account posted a picture of U-Haul trucks being loaded up for delivery.
"@NCAA Our teammates have worked quickly to get truckloads of fitness equipment ready to send to the women's @ncaawbb @marchmadness bubble – we are standing by to deliver it and have your facility outfitted within hours!" the company tweeted. "Let's make this happen."
The NCAA has informed Dick's Sporting Goods that the equipment was not needed. While they appreciated the offer, they already had the new equipment covered. See video of the updated facilities below....
