What began as a friendly challenge from University of Idaho creative writing professor and author Kim Barnes to three visiting writers from Spokane—a little pickup skirmish between them and players from the English Department—turned into a full-court game between the Spokane Dirty Realists and the Moscow SuperSonnets. When author Sherman Alexie joined in, the match became a fundraising event in support of the American Indian Graduate Fellowship in Creative Writing.. At this years rematch, HooPalousa veterans Sherman Alexie, Jess Walter, and Shann Ray, and coach Sam Ligon will join other writers, regional Native American legends, and former Gonzaga basketball stars, including David Pendergraft and Heather Bowman, for round two of Bards on the Hardwood.
