Following the game, Spartans head coach Tom Izzo had a stern message for Michigan State fans who have been abusing his players on social media.

From Detroit Free Press:

“If there’s any Michigan State people out there that are abusing some of my players on that frickin’ Twitter, I’m sick of it,” Izzo said. “I’m sick of dealing with what I got to deal with.

“If they are Michigan State fans, I’d be more than happy to buy their tickets, and I mean that.”

Izzo noted the team is 16-7 and 8-4 in the Big Ten – “we’re not 5-20” he said.

“I’m pretty proud of this place,” Izzo said. “I’m pretty proud of the 550,000 living alums. And it’s despicable, some of the things that have gone out there about some of our guys that have given more to this program than most of those alums or most of those people sitting behind a chicken keyboard.”

“I get paid a lot of money, so take your shots at me, but don’t take them at a kid who’s been a 3.7 student, who’s done more for this university than most of those people have,” he said. “It’s despicable to me.

“That’s my shoutout to my people that love me or people that hate me.”
