This is for all those coaches who can't stand doing postgame handshakes and for Mississippi's Marshall Henderson:

This really speaks volumes about the character of these kids....especially Franklin, who trust me, is hurting after this loss. He is an intense competitor. Make sure to watch the video.

Wow. Thanks for sharing, CDC. Winning with class can be hard, losing with class is even harder . Props to Franklin for doing just that.

Awesome. THIS is what sports are all about to me. I was raised to compete to my fullest and to the end, but win or lose handle yourself with class. Clearly this young man was raised the same way.

Franklin runs hot and cold with most SDSU fans. Too often he showboats and it hurts the team. This seems sincere, good for him, but the majority of SDSU fans won't shed tears if he enters the draft. Still, a good kid and he's no Shabazz Muhammed at any age.

I normally don't like players who showboat, but when a guy is leading your team in something like 6 statistical categories - including some that clearly demonstrate his work ethic and team first attitude - you'd think the SDSU fans would give him some slack for some of his crazy dunk attempts.
