(WACH) Martin: We better understand each other so we can better help one another
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) -- For anyone who has ever listened to Frank Martin to speak, you know how much passion comes with each word he speaks. Following Sunday's hurricane relief exhibition for the South Carolina Gamecocks men's basketball team against Virginia Tech, Martin relayed the message he hoped resented with his players.
"We better understand each other so we can better help one another." Martin said, along side Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams. "And the only way you're going to understand one another is by communicating. Communicating isn't just (talking), it's listening."
The Gamecocks and Hookies raised thousands of dollars for hurricane relief efforts, thanks to the support of fans from both sides.
"Time, passion and money are the three most important things in life. The people that came out here today gave all three."
At halftime both Martin and Williams' families made a $5,000 donation to hurricane relief efforts.
