College coach unleashes on unsuspecting player


//

Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo has refused to back down from his stance after a heated clash with one of his players during his side's win against 15th seeded Bradley.

The college basketball coach unloaded at freshman forward Aaron Henry during the second half of the Spartans' 76-65 first round win at the NCAA Tournament on Thursday.

Following the win, Izzo told reporters that he wanted Henry and other players to take more accountability.

"There were a lot of things where Aaron didn’t do a very good job," Izzo told reporters.

"He did respond and he did make a couple of big buckets and he did make some big free throws. But that’s not good enough. This is one-and-done time. The ‘my bads’ are out the window.

"If it’s ‘my bad’ because I decided to jog back instead of sprint back, then it is your bad and you’re going to hear about it."

Izzo's tirade at the 19-year-old began as the Spartans players walked toward the bench during a stoppage of play while clinging to a five-point lead.

First, the veteran coach walked to Henry and pointed a finger almost directly into Henry's chest, before Henry's teammate Cassius Winston separated the coach and player.

Moments later, with Izzo and his team seated, the coach got up and lunged at Henry, before again being held back, this time by guard Matt McQuaid, who grabbed his coach by the shoulder.

Despite his fury, Michigan State did advance to the second round of the tournament and will face the 10th-seeded Minnesota on Sunday AEDT.
