Thursday night was as poor for Tom Izzo and Michigan State as it was great for Juwan Howard and the Wolverines.

Entering the contest, the Spartans were already heavy underdogs to the No. 2-ranked team in the country. Michigan played up to that billing as Michigan State struggled in what has been an upside-down type of season for the Spartans.

Michigan State shot just 36.4% from the floor, went a miserable 0-for-9 from deep, committed 16 fouls, and had 12 turnovers to just seven assists. It all culminated in a 19-point win for the Wolverines as the Spartans watched Michigan celebrate the regular season B1G title.

During his Friday afternoon press conference, Izzo discussed that performance by the Spartans. He admitted that the game film made him nauseous after re-watching the miserable performance.

Izzo also discussed what Senior Day on Sunday might look like for the Spartans, Rocket Watts’ defensive performance, and the possibility of Joshua Langford coming back for another year in East Lansing.
