Great moment for those kids. It was posted here earlier today.

Best of luck to Coach Dawkins and the Stanford Cardinal tonight in the NIT championship! Hopefully the motivation from the other night will propel Coach Dawkins and his team to win tonight.
Stanford led 31-25 at the half and now leads 60-37 with 7 mins. left. Ray Lewis must have given the halftime speech because the Cardinal have outscored Minnesota 29-12 in the second half.
JD is a great coach and better person. Stanford is lucky to have him. I'm a Tubby fan, from the time he played his college ball as a star at High Point to today. I'm a little surprised he has stayed at Minnesota for so long, but after his experience in the fishbowl at Kentucky...Always the best to Tubby!
Congrats Johnny D! Don't think I'm in danger of pre-calling it with 3:49 left and a 30-point lead.
The trophy for this tournament is a bust of Dave Odom, right?

Congrats Johnny! Your team looked impressive, and they should be even better next year.

Stanford bball will soon be back to the level it was at under Mike Montgomery...
That Dawkins is the nicest man on the planet makes this all the more satisfying.
Great game for Johnny and the Cardinal. Stanford just BLEW THEM AWAY in the second half, up by over 30 at one point I believe. Congratulations coach. Stanford got a good one when they got you!
BTW, the TV announcers made it sound like Stanford will be pretty good next year. Only losing one front-line starter (who I think they said scores about 12 per game) and one front-line reserve. But they are bringing in a 4-star recruit, and two 3-star guys. So, expect to see Stanford near the top of the Pac-12 again. (Yeah, I know, that isn't necessarily saying much...)
Way to go Johnny D!!!!
