The Seminoles knew that Mike Cofer, the former Detroit Lions linebacker, had been battling an undisclosed illness, but Phil played through it - before being sidelined Thursday in a walking boot for a nagging foot injury.

"All the emotions we're feeling - whether it's anger, sadness, helplessness, just bottle it up and give it everything you got on the court so that we can give Phil some hardware to go home with", senior guard PJ Savoy said.

Cofer is a fifth-year senior and has played at least 22 games in four of his five seasons. "I think everybody is going to have that on their mind and use that as motivation - just kind of doing that for our brother who can't do that for himself".

Cofer was not in uniform for Thursday's victory over Vermont that propelled the Seminoles into Saturday's second round against the victor of Marquette-Murray State in Hartford, Connecticut.

Mike Cofer was diagnosed in 2007 with amyloidosis, a rare disease in which proteins become insoluble and disrupt function of the kidneys and other organs.

Phil Cofer began to sob, devastated, his body heaving as it was consumed by grief. Cofer ultimately chose to remain with the team through the weekend. "And he never complained".
