Michigan state basketball coach Tom Izzo had another heated exchange with one of his players during the NCAA tournament. And it brings back the debate about where the line for tough coaching is.
In the final game of the first half against UCLA at Mackey Arena, there appeared to be a defensive miscommunication between MSU’s Malik Hall and Gabe Brown to give. It resulted in an open Jaime Jaquez Jr. sweater to end halftime.
Brown and Hall had a brief chat about the defense mishap when MSU went into the tunnel to get to their locker room.
When Brown turned away, Izzo grabbed Brown’s arm. As Brown pulled back and headed up the tunnel, Izzo tried to hold on to Brown’s jersey.
Although the Spartans had an 11 point lead at break, the TBS halftime show focused on TNT NBA stars Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, and Kenny Smith, and longtime college basketball insider Andy Katz on Izzo’s reaction. Barkley didn’t seem to have a problem with it, while Smith resisted the idea of Izzo Brown grabbing.
It was in the first round of the NCAA tournament in 2019 that Izzo raised her eyebrows by telling the then-freshman Aaron yelled at Henry while the operation was paused. « It wasn’t like he was attacking me, but it was almost like he was helping me because I couldn’t get it through, » said Henry before the 2019-20 season. « I didn’t play hard. He was just trying to get me to understand. I can’t be mad at him. … I don’t know if he knew I was prepared for this, but I think he did seen that I was prepared for it.
« I will accept everything he says because he wants nothing for me but the best. »
Several former MSU players quickly defended their former coach in the social Media including Draymond Green and Delvon Roe.
Haters who are gone say Izz and Gabe Brown don’t look good. I’m telling you this is WINNING basketball! Face each other, it may not look pretty , but it shows you don’t care! #TheSpartanWay 🤷🏾♂️
