It’s a familiar script- a traditional rite of passage each March. As flowers begin to blossom so does the Michigan State basketball team coached by Tom Izzo.
Maybe Izzo was right after all when he put the national networks on notice following his team’s win at Illinois on February 23rd. Izzo won a pivotal game that held huge consequences for both teams. Izzo then called out the national media that night for their depiction of the Big Ten as mediocre.
As Tom Izzo said, the Big Ten isn’t very top heavy, but they do have a bunch of solid, competitive teams. Most people would agree with that sentiment.Follow paulmbanks
