- After they played basketball together, she went to get changed and found him “right behind me, and just like physically very much in my space…He leaned toward me and said, ‘Can I kiss you?’ I said no and backed away, and he kept moving forward and was like, laughing and smiling and sweaty and whatever, and he said, ‘It’s just, we’re playing basketball, you remind me of the girlfriends I had in high school.’ And I just said, ‘Well, we’re not in high school, Sherman.’” Walker said Alexie later apologized. FALLOUT: "After the [shocking] allegations about Alexie surfaced last month, the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe announced that it would be renaming its Sherman Alexie scholarship.

Where did the term “March Madness” come from?
March Madness was first used to refer to basketball by an Illinois high school official, Henry V. Porter, in 1939, but the term didn’t find its way to the NCAA tournament until CBS broadcaster Brent Musburger (who used to be a sportswriter in Chicago) used it during coverage of the 1982 tournament. The term has been synonymous with the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament ever since. More or how about some NPR
