Purdue shouts out Butler’s Kelan Martin for show of sportsmanship after game

Butler suffered a heartbreaking loss to Purdue in the Round of 32 on Sunday, which makes a gesture that Bulldogs leading scorer Kelan Martin made after the game even cooler.

Purdue shouted out the senior forward on Twitter for coming aboard their bus outside the arena following their 76-73 win over Butler and wishing them good luck in the Sweet Sixteen.

The No. 10-seeded Bulldogs battled the No. 2-seeded Boilermakers for all 40 minutes on Sunday and came a halfcourt heave at the buzzer away from tying the game. For Martin, who led the team in points (21.0), rebounds (6.3), and threes a game (2.7) this season, this proved to be his final game at the college level. His show of grace and humility towards Purdue won’t soon be forgotten though, not unlike others that we have seen in this year’s tournament as well.
