    I have great respect for Duke's Coach K (not so much for Utah's Coach K) and Williams and Rose and Judkins. All are great people that should be respected. Great story. Best of wishes to Melanie and her family.

    Stay strong, Melanie. Everyone inside Cougar Nation, and obviously many from outside as well, are pulling for you.

    Very touching story that brought a tear to my eye. Doesn't seem like much but what these coaches did makes a huge impact on someone whose days are numbered. May we all look for opportunities to be instruments in blessing others.

    It is always good to be reminded there are many things more important that sports and it is great to see coaches and athletes helping remind us.

    Best wishes to Melanie Day and her family in this battle!

    This was an amazing and inspirational story. The efforts of so many people to fulfill the bucket list of a cancer patient. What outstanding coaches, Rose, Roy Williams and Coach K.

    A beautiful, inspirational story. Now I too, have great respect for these 2 coaches, as well as for the coaches and players at BYU. Tragedy brings out the best in people. It would be great if we could all be this concerned about others without a tragedy needed to bring us together.
