For the first time in more than 50 years, the Yale Bulldogs have made it into the NCAA playoffs. The team just won its first playoff game against Baylor last night. But they’re in the competition without their captain, Jack Montague.

Former Yale basketball captain Jack Montague was expelled over a sexual assault allegation and plans to sue the school, his attorney said Monday.

Attorney Max Stern issued a statement saying Montague had a relationship with the woman. He said the dispute is about the last of four sexual encounters, which occurred in October 2014.

The lawyer said the woman claims she didn't consent to the sex, but Montague said she did and also asserts she later came back to his room to spend the night.

Black Fives Foundation

The Greenwich, Connecticut-based Black Fives Foundation has collected hundreds of artifacts from a period in sports history called the Black Fives Era.  It refers to the first half of the 20th century, in segregated America, where African Americans formed basketball leagues of their own.

WSHU's Tom Kuser speaks with founder Claude Johnson about an exhibit at the New York Historical Society in Manhattan, which features many of those artifacts.
