— UConn is taking a stand against Indiana’s new “religious freedom” law, as the Huskies coaching staff will skip the Final Four in Indianapolis along with the National Association of Basketball Coaches convention that is held at the same time.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy banned state-funded travel to Indiana in response to the new law that critics say legalizes discrimination, but because coach Kevin Ollie and his assistants already had paid for their trip, the school was given the choice how to handle it.

“In support of Gov. Malloy’s travel ban to the state of Indiana, Kevin Ollie and other members of the UConn men’s basketball staff will not travel to Indianapolis for the NCAA Final Four and events surrounding it,” UConn president Susan Herbst said Tuesday in a statement. “UConn is a community that values all of our members and treats each person with the same degree of respect, regardless of their background and beliefs and we will not tolerate any other behavior.”

Earlier Tuesday, USC athletic director Pat Haden, whose son is gay, announced that he would boycott the College Football Playoff committee meetings this week in the Hoosier State.

Tweeted Haden: I am the proud father of a gay son. In his honor, I will not be attending the CFP committee meeting in Indy this week. #EmbraceDiversity

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, who previously dismissed opposing views of the bill, took a more open stance Tuesday, saying that he has been meeting with lawmakers and wants new legislation by the end of the week that clarifies that the new law does not open the door for people and businesses to legally discriminate.

“It certainly wasn’t my intent,” Pence insisted.

— An arrest warrant was issued for former NHL player Andre Deveaux in Sweden after he attacked an opposing player during warmups before a playoff game last week.

Deveaux played for Rogle BK, a second-tier team from the southern Sweden town of Angelholm, but the Canadian’s contract was terminated Monday after video of the incident went viral. In the video, Deveaux — apparently upset about a hit earlier in the series — can be seen skating out from the bench and immediately heading for VIK Vasteras captain Per Helmersson. Skating up from behind, Deveaux raises his stick and, with two hands, swings it at Helmersson’s skate and then jumps on top of the surprised player.

VIK Vasteras reported the incident to police Monday, and authorities decided to take action.

“He is wanted for suspicion of assault,” prosecutor Margareta Danielsson-Olvon said. “An investigation is ongoing. We don’t know where he is and have put out a warrant for his arrest.”

— For the third time in four days, an Alabama football player was arrested. Reserve running back Tyren Jones was kicked off the team by coach Nick Saban after his arrest for marijuana possession.

Saban had suspended Jones on Feb. 10 for “conduct not the standard of the Alabama football program,” and Tuesday’s arrest was the final straw.

“Tyren Jones was indefinitely suspended from the football program early in the semester,” Saban said in a statement. “He was given an opportunity academically and from a team rules standpoint, but he failed to do any of the things necessary to comply with the rules of the Alabama football program. He was dismissed from the team when he refused to follow the parameters given to him for reinstatement.”

Jones rushed for 224 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman last season.

Safety Geno Smith and defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor also were arrested in the past few days. Taylor, who had been dismissed from Georgia last July following his arrest for domestic violence and transferred to Alabama, was booted this week after his arrest on another domestic violence charge.

ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On April 1, 2003, in the second game of the season, which Red Sox newcomer hit a home run in the 16th inning for a 9-8 victory over the Devil Rays in Tampa?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I understood there was an incident that had transpired, and I wanted to know whether he was involved, and if he was, any player that comes into our system, I consider part of our extended family, and I wanted to get him help. … He said he was not involved. That he was innocent and that he hoped that the time of the murder incident came out because he said he was in a club.” – Patriots owner Robert Kraft, testifying in the Aaron Hernandez murder trial about his conversation with Hernandez two days after the death of Odin Lloyd

STAT OF THE DAY: 20 – Goals this season for Loui Eriksson, who scored in the first period of the Bruins’ 3-2 victory over the Panthers
