Minnesota basketball: Joey King cries after huge upset win over Maryland

Minnesota came away with a huge win over Maryland on Thursday, but it clearly meant a lot more to the Golden Gophers than just another mark in the win column.

Senior Joey King gave a moving postgame interview in which he was brought to tears when discussing what the game meant to the entire Minnesota basketball program. 

College sports programs become families, and there's no greater proof of that than King welling up when discussing his teammates on Thursday night.
