‘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. It 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.

You know, we’ve been together a long time and she’s the perfect partner for me. And I think when people throw around soul mates and all that, I mean, we’re for real.
