      VIDEO: Frank Martin hides in shirt to duck politics question, then delivers eloquent answer

      South Carolina head coach Frank Martin was asked at a Monday media session how he would feel if, after his team won a national title, one or more of his players decided against visiting the White House with the team.

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, still emotional a day later, said Harris provided his inspirational perspective at a team meeting Sunday by sharing his thoughts while being taken off the court at Purdue on a stretcher. “I realized my career is over,”‘ Izzo recalled Harris saying as the coach fought back more tears. “That was … that was hard.” It will be really difficult for the Spartans (16-11, 8-6 Big Ten) to extend their
