Tom Izzo receives festive technical foul in incredible fashion against Oakland
Tom Izzo was called for perhaps the most festive technical foul in basketball history late Wednesday night as Michigan State hosted Oakland.
The iconic Michigan State head coach was called for a technical in the first half of the Spartans’ win over Oakland while wearing a elf sweater. It’s something you have to see to believe.

Michigan State has had an up and down year. The Spartans almost knocked off Gonzaga before getting the job done against Alabama, but have since lost to Northwestern and Notre Dame for a 8-4 record heading into the Christmas break.
And it’s only going to get tougher. B1G play resumes in January, with Michigan State looking to fight its way back into the NCAA Tournament.
