  2. 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.”
