On Thursday, the Michigan State Spartans defeated Bradley 76-65 to advance to the NCAA Tournament Round of 32.
But the Spartans win was not the news that stole the headlines over the next couple of days.
Instead, everybody and their brother showed the video and wrote about a couple of incidents which involved MSU head coach Tom Izzo yelling and getting in freshman Aaron Henry‘s face.
Some destroyed Izzo for his actions while most defended him, pointing out how much he loves his players and that this is something he has done for many years.
On Saturday, Detroit Pistons‘ head coach Dwane Casey was asked about Izzo’s coaching style and he had a message for anyone criticizing the Spartans’ coach for getting on his players.
#Pistons coach Dwane Casey to those criticizing MSU coach Tom Izzo: "I don’t know any coach worth is salt – whether he does it in the locker room or on the court – that doesn’t get on players. They’re making a lot to do about nothing."

As a Michigan fan who absolutely loves John Beilein and his coaching style, I almost equally love Tom Izzo and how he coaches his teams.
Keep it up, Tom.
