Who?

Usually, my colleagues at NPR are spot on both in hard news and soft features, but yesterday…. not so much.

Robert Siegel introduced an interview with an upstart NCAA tourney team by explaining this group of young men was the “feel-good story of March Madness.”… The first team from their conference to reach the Sweet Sixteen since 1979 … done it without the benefit of any likely NBA top draft picks.
He then introduced the senior forward from….. Cornell University.
East Coast bias? Ivy League elitism? Or maybe the Sports Illustrated with Ali Farokhmanesh on the cover just hadn’t arrived at the NPR offices yet.
