Forty or so Idaho students marched through downtown Boise Friday night in protest of legislation that would restrict education on racism and sexism in public schools throughout the state. 

The students — predominantly from Treasure Valley high schools — took aim at RS28866, a proposal that would prohibit public schools from teaching “racist or sexist concepts.” By the proposal’s definition, those concepts include teaching that Idaho or the U.S. is fundamentally racist, that individuals are inherently oppressive by virtue of their race or sex or that someone should receive “favorable treatment” because of their race or sex. Public schools violating the curriculum constraints could face a 10% funding holdback from the State Board of Education along with legal action from the public.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The UCLA Bruins needed to bring its A-game in order to beat the incredibly powerful Gonzaga Bulldogs, and boy, the Bruins did not disappoint; as UCLA went toe to toe with Gonzaga all game long. The game would need extra time, as regulation ended with the two teams tied up at 81-81. It should be noted, that Drew Timme made perhaps the most important play of the game by drawing a charge in the paint to force the turnover. However, it wasn't until the end of the first overtime that the game ended courtesy of a Jalen Suggs, who hit a 30+ foot 3-pointer to win it at the buzzer.

Gonzaga wins 93-90. 

The Bulldogs are now 31-0 heading into the National Championship Game against Baylor hoping to make history, by becoming the first team to go undefeated since 1975-76, when the Indiana Hoosiers ran the table under legendary coach, Bobby Knight.
