Video: Sarah Palin Covers a Glen Rice Basketball Game for Anchorage’s KTUU

By Andrew Gauthier Comment

The above video shows a young Sarah Palin (then Sarah Heath) reporting on a college basketball game for KTUU that involved Glen Rice, her alleged former lover.

The much-ballyhooed new Palin biography, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” claims that she hooked up with Rice, then a junior at the University of Michigan, while covering a 1987 college basketball tournament for the Anchorage NBC-affiliate.

In the clip, Palin narrates highlights of Michigan’s loss to Purdue at the end of the 1987-88 season, some three months after her alleged tryst with the basketball star.  According to Deadspin, Rice had just 11 points in the game so he goes unmentioned.
