Following Florida State’s loss to Michigan in the 2018 NCAA Tournament over the weekend, Seminoles head coach Leonard Hamilton reacted to a question from Dana Jacobson in a manner that drew some backlash.
A grumpy Hamilton appeared upset when Jacobson asked about his strategy not to foul late in the game.

While some people were upset, Jacobson actually came to the defense of Hamilton on social media.
“Coach Hamilton spoke to me minutes after an emotional @FSUHoops loss. It was the right question to ask. He showed emotion & I appreciate him talking through it w/me instead of walking off. He was nothing but professional w/me throughout this weekend as I believe I was with them,” she wrote on Twitter.
Hamilton also issued a statement of his own to apologize for his actions.
