‘It was beautiful’

Gives Talk

After the 60-54 win over Virginia by MSU’s basketball team, Johnson speaks to the entire team.

I just want to say, when you’re in a battle, your seniors gotta step up, all right?…See, you stepped up. And even when [Denzel] Valentine got in foul trouble, you didn’t waver. You kept going…And I think Coach was right: the defense, helping each other, talking — talking.┬áIt was beautiful. It was beautiful to watch. And even when they came back and made their run, you stuck to the game plan, you executed and you stuck together.


Nets over $28M from tourney

Because of the run that ACC teams are making in the NCAA Tournament, the ACC is set to make over $28 million over the next six years. The NCAA pays conferences for the performance of their teams in a tournament, and each game played in this year’s tournament is worth at least $1.56 million. The league’s teams are currently 11-1 in the tournament, with five teams in the Sweet 16. The only loss was by Virginia, who lost to Michigan State.
