One of the best parts of March is that beautiful moments can come at the most unexpected times.
In this case, an emotional, teary-eyed Max Good delivered one Thursday night after a reporter asked how proud he was of his Loyola Marymount team for upsetting seventh-seeded Portland 67-64 in the opening round of the West Coast Conference tournament.
“Oh, I can’t begin to tell you to be honest,” Good said, choking back emotion. “These guys pick me up everyday. I apologize for this, but don’t care. I come to practice everyday and they pick my ass up. I hate the day off. I can’t wait to get in the gym and see these guys every day. They grind and they grind and they grind.
“I jumped on [forward] Nick Stover unmercifully tonight and he stuck it right up my behind. I jumped [point guard] Anthony [Ireland] for throwing him the ball and Nick heard that and how do you think that makes him feel and he said, ‘Oh I’ll show you, you old S.O.B.’ and he showed me and in the process showed Portland.
