Aaron Henry’s comments on being berated by Michigan State’s Tom Izzo are perfection

Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo was not happy on Thursday during his No. 2 Spartans 11 point win over No. 15 Bradley.

This was obvious by Izzo’s actions toward Aaron Henry. On two separate occasions, Izzo had to be held back by Spartans’ players as he tried to get in the face of Henry.

Anyone who has followed Izzo knows this is nothing new and that he had been challenging his players like this for many years.

Following the game, Henry was asked about getting yelled at by Izzo and his answer was perfect.

Tom Izzo is a great coach who has always tried to get the most out of his players. Sometimes that means getting fired up and yelling at them.

Deal with it.
