After Indiana beat Minnesota on Sunday night, Indiana coach Tom Crean met with reporters as he usually does. But this time he had a special friend attend the session with him. Bloomington native Brian Jones is an Indiana Hoosiers basketball fan and suffers from ALS. He is on a ventilator and in hospice care.

"Brian Jones is a model of perseverance," Crean told the room.

Crean visited Jones a few weeks ago and spoke about how much Jones inspires him.

Watch it all in the video in this post.

Indiana beat Minnesota, 90-71, behind a school-record 18 3-pointers, including six by James Blackmon Jr.
