The NCAA has been under fire during March Madness.
First, players were using the hashtag #NotNCAAProperty to share their displeasure with the NCAA not allowing them to profit off of their image and likeness, and now the NCAA is getting called out for sexism.
Oregon forward Sedona Prince took to social media to show the differences between the men’s and women’s weight rooms for the NCAA Tournament. The redshirt sophomore shared a video that showed a full weight room for the men, but just a rack of dumbells and yoga mats for the women.
“If you aren’t upset about this problem, then you are a part of it,” she said.
Let me put it on Twitter too cause this needs the attention pic.twitter.com/t0DWKL2YHR

“I got something to show y’all. So, for the NCAA March Madness, the biggest tournament in college basketball for women … This is our weight room,” she said while pointing toward one stack of free weights,” she said in the video. “Lemme show y’all the men’s weight room,” she said while the video cuts to the gym at the men’s tournament in Indiana.
“Now when pictures of our weight room got released vs. the men’s, the NCAA came out with a statement saying that it wasn’t money, it was space that was the problem.”
This is definitely a bad look for the NCAA.
