    Volleyball’s Sophie Hackett: A Big, Fair Servant’s Heart

    The Uno card game extravaganza was approaching its third hour and still Sophie Hackett slammed down a draw-four wild card with the same good-natured competitiveness she had in hour one. Her opponent for marathon Uno — a 13-year-old boy who was receiving treatment on the hematology and oncology floor of Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids — seemed unperturbed. That’s all part of the game, he knows, a move from his opponent both expected and necessary, just like the chemotherapy he must undergo. Expected and necessary. For now.

  3. New Book Tells of the Origins of March Madness

    Long before it became a national phenomenon linked to a $11 billion television contract, obsessive office wagering and another meaning to the name “Cinderella,” the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament — more commonly dubbed March Madness — had its humble beginnings in modestly populated Midwestern gymnasiums to little fanfare and hype. Gradually big-name coaches and big-city venues, plus a big-time point-shaving scandal, enveloped the tournament, directing it toward the more prominent stage it would eventually play upon today. It’s this early roundball history, when college basketball was fresh-faced and growing, that Dr. Chad Carlson of the Hope College faculty recounts in his new book, “Making March Madness: The Early Years of the NCAA, NIT and College Basketball Championships, 1922-1951.”
