Izzo on yelling at Henry: 'It's the way it is'

Share

The outlet reported that Henry committed five of the team's nine turnovers and missed several rebounds in the second half of the game.

"When you truly understand who he is as a man and as a coach, he just wants the best for you". So you've got one guy saying to Coach, 'Hey, Coach. There's a year he's been here now.

"There is hours and hours and hours spent on what did you want to accomplish?" What do you need to do accomplish that? The Spartans were able to come back and win the game 76-65, avoiding what could have been an epic upset.

It left fans wondering what happened during commercial break, and then CBS showed the huddle where a visibly frustrated Izzo was still going at Henry for his mistake and he got up to yell more, but was quickly corralled by an assistant coach and a couple of players.

Immediately after the time out was whistled, Izzo charged onto the court and tapped Henry (far right) in the stomach before jabbing his finger in the 6foot6 guard's face.

Former Spartans star Draymond Green took to Twitter on Friday to share his thoughts on why his former coach needed to be restrained.

The heated argument continued in the huddle, with Izzo lunging at the freshman player.

First, the veteran coach walked to Henry and pointed a finger nearly directly into Henry's chest, before Henry's teammate Cassius Winston separated the coach and player. That's nothing new. Everybody knows that. That's what you're here for.

'You know he's going to chew you out when he calls you over there - there's nothing you can do now, ' he told reporters. "If you don't do those things what do you think my job is?" "I hate to say it, that's all that really matters to me".

"It was ridiculous the way it blew up", Izzo said. They were effort-related. I did get after him. It's to challenge you to be the best player that you can possibly be. "We giggled about it taking such a negative turn [nationally]".
