The phrase “March Madness” was coined by Henry V. Porter in 1939 to describe an Illinois high school basketball tourney. Brent Musburger first used it during NCAA coverage in 1982 causing a legal battle almost as insane as the playoffs.

But everyone finally worked things out and the madness was official. There isn’t a good record of who first called the playoffs “The Big Dance”, but it does describe the action. Watch the finals live at the Independent. Doors: 5:30 pm / Show: 6:00 pm
