During a timeout moments later, Izzo sprang out of his chair and moved toward Henry before Michigan State players intervened.

Michigan State advanced to the second round with the win. It's a joke. And to beat a good team in Bradley, where Brian Wardle is a hell of a coach?

Perhaps the highlight of the game though was Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo having to be restrained after going after his own player, Aaron Henry.

"I did get after him".

"You're not going to hear me complain", said Gophers coach Richard Pitino, who is 2-6 against Izzo. "On the other side of the coin, Amir Coffey wasn't a shadow of the player he is right now, and Gabe Kalscheur is playing much, much better".

Titans’ pursuit of Antonio Brown appears over
Brown spoke with Pittsburgh owner Art Rooney II earlier this off-season and decided it would be best for the two to part ways. ESPN is now reporting trade talks for Brown are ongoing and a deal with Buffalo is not out of the question but "unlikely".

Following the team's 76-65 victory, Izzo defended his outburst, explaining he had been unhappy with the lack of effort he was seeing from Henry on the court. "Aaron Henry-trust me-did some things that you can't do as a starter on a top-5 team at the end of your freshman year". Guard Skylar Mays led the Tigers offense with 19 points as he was a big closer from the free-throw line late in the game while also picking up the scoring in the second half when Waters went cold.

"Well, I think people need to understand our job, especially at all levels, is to prepare the child for the road, " Boylen said.

"This is one-and-done time", Izzo said. I'm sorry. You know what? Nevertheless, given Boylen's firsthand knowledge of how Izzo operates and his similarly intense coaching style, that defense is an important one to add to the discussion. I'm disappointed you can't coach a guy hard these days without somebody making a big deal about it. So I have to be better Saturday'.

"Someone on Tom Izzo's team is taking cues to his coaching style, and when they get a chance to coach, they're gonna coach the same way, because they were coached that way".

And guess what? The victor would face another Big Ten opponent next week in the East Region semifinals in Washington, D.C., if sixth-seeded Maryland beats third-seeded LSU on Saturday.
