There's probably never been an NCAA tournament that has featured more attention on stenographers and press conference transcripts.

We have Wisconsin and loquacious sophomore Nigel Hayes, in particular, to thank for it.
On Saturday afternoon, though, it was a not-so-rare Denzel Valentine mix-up on an NCAA tourney transcript that received plenty of attention on social media.
Valentine, as he has been multiple times throughout his Michigan State career, is referred to as "Denzel Washington" at least once on the transcript from the Spartans' East Region final press conference.
Understandable mistake. A lot like Washington on the big screen, Valentine has been playing a starring role during Michigan State's tourney run.
Michigan State takes on Louisville at 2:20 p.m. ET Sunday. The winner will advance to the Final Four and play the Duke-Gonzaga victor.
