Urban legend has it that if you leave a basketball in the auditorium and say “Alex, come and get your ball!” the sound of a bouncing basketball can be heard. The source? It’s said that Alex was a young boy who was once playing with a basketball and got caught under the melted snow puddled underneath the building and drowned.
