Kamala Harris Falsely Claims That Women’s Basketball Wasn’t Allowed Brackets Until Last Year

On Thursday, Vice President Kamala Harris made a completely false statement during an interview, suggesting that women’s college basketball players had only recently started benefiting from tournament brackets, specifically in 2022.

The inclusion of tournament brackets has been a longstanding tradition in the NCAA women’s basketball postseason since its inception.

However, it wasn’t until 2022 that the copyright for the iconic “March Madness” name was finally extended to the women’s tournament.

Harris had a conversation with Spectrum News’ Tim Boyum during a behind-the-scenes moment at an event in Charlotte, North Carolina.

During their discussion, she provided insight into a recent call between President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, describing it as open and honest.

During the conversation, the topic shifted to a more lighthearted subject – the recent surge in public interest in women’s college basketball.

This was evident from the impressive television ratings of Monday evening’s game between Iowa and LSU. However, Vice President Harris made a embarrassing error by attributing the rise in popularity to a lack of brackets.

“Do you know? Okay, a bit of a history lesson. Do you know that women were not. The women’s teams were not allowed to have brackets until 2022. Think about that. And what? That. Talk about progress. You know better late than never, but progress and what that has done. Because of course, when, you know, I had a bracket and it’s not broken completely, but I won’t talk about my bracket.” Harris said.

“But you know, just how we love we love March Madness. And even just now allowing the women to have brackets and what that does to encourage people to talk more about the women’s teams, to watch them now they’re being covered, you know, and and this is the reality people used to say are women’s sports. Who’s interested? Well, if you can’t see it, you won’t be. But when you see it, you realize, oh.” she continued.
