The winners get the glory in March, but some of the month’s most memorable moments belong to those who don’t come out on top. Think Adam Morrison’s tears, Da’Sean Butler and Bob Huggins’ embrace or Gordon Hayward’s miss.

It wasn’t the NCAA tournament but add this hug between Fairfield coach Sydney Johnson and Fairfield all-time leading scorer Tyler Nelson to the list.

Iona topped Fairfield in the MAAC title game to end the Stags’ season, but no one will soon forget this moment between player and coach.
