Izzo’s team gave him something to cheer about in the end. Michigan State pulled away and secured a 72-62 victory.
Michigan State will continue its NCAA Tournament journey on Sunday against the winner of Friday’s matchup between No. 2 Marquette and No. 15 Vermont, giving the team an extra day to find a new – and perhaps stronger – clipboard.
