NYT: Dakari Johnson, one of the towering big men on Kentucky’s undefeated team, played with Derrick Gordon at St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, N.J. Gordon, who started for Massachusetts this season, announced that we was gay last year.

Asked Friday about a new Indiana law that allows business owners to refuse service to same-sex couples on the basis of religious objections, Johnson cited his former teammate.

“I don’t feel it’s right that people at the store would not sell someone something because of the way that they are,” Johnson, a sophomore, said, adding, “If that’s how people are, I fully support that.”
