FILE - In this Thursday, March 12, 2015, file photo, California head coach Cuonzo Martin, center, speaks with his team during a timeout in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Arizona in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 conference tournament in Las Vegas. Arizona won 73-51. Martin has a certain way he does things. No staying late after games to rehash film into the wee hours as is customary for so many college basketball coaches, only to return first thing in the morning to do so again. He avoids finger- pointing at one player in the heat of the moment, instead choosing to critique a specific area in which his team struggled while speaking individually with a young man when necessary. Missouri’s new coach learned a lot from a cancer scare 20 years ago. (AP Photo/John Locher, File)
