Rumor: Glen Rice and Sarah Palin?

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Glen Rice could score. On and off court.

During a long, standout NBA career, Rice was known for his sweet outside stroke that stretched opposing defences.

Apparently, he had a fan in former Alaska Governor and Republican leadership hopeful Sarah Palin. Check out the quotes from the always trusty National Enquirer:

Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.

A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”

It’s worth considering the source, however, Rice did confirm the story.
