Indiana snapshot: Single-class tourney still looms large

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Bill Butcher and Bobby Plump graduated from high school 21 years apart. While both grew up in small Indiana towns, 2 1/2 hours apart, they experienced very similar moments. Both became hometown basketball heroes by leading their underdog teams to Indiana’s state title game. Both are remembered for memorable tourney moments. And both remember how people raced for the Sunday newspaper to start filling out the high school tournament bracket — long before March Madness was a big deal. They are reminded of the tournament as the NCAA wraps up its tournament this weekend. It was played entirely in Indiana.
