Michigan State coming off a tough loss at Wisconsin.
“We got our ass kicked today by a team that played for their coach, played for their school, played for each other,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. “I don’t know all the situations and I don’t really care. But that is a great example of somebody reaching down, a group of people, and playing for their coach, their program and their school.”
“Players play the game and coaches coach the game,” Izzo said. “My job is to get them ready to play. I think they were ready to play as far as X’s and O’s. My job is also to get them ready to play where they have the energy and the stamina, and I didn’t do my job there. So I thought some of our players didn’t do their job, but 100% the coach didn’t do his job.”
