New transfer rules will be rooted in academics, and could give higher achieving students more freedom while limiting who might be less likely to graduate if they switch schools.(AP Photo/Keith Srakocic, File)

The NCAA lifted its ban on holding championships in states that allow for legal, single-game sports betting Thursday.

On Monday, the Supreme Court erased a federal law against sports betting and empowered states to legalize wagering on sports.

The states will temporarily be allowed to hold championships until a more permanent decision in future meetings.
