Michigan State Basketball: Reactions to Spartans getting snubbed of a one seed

WATCH: Michigan State's Tom Izzo explodes at Aaron Henry, needs to be...

As the interaction continued to grow heated, with Izzo pointing a finger at the player as he appeared to lead him towards the end of the court, Henry's teammate Cassius Winston, 21, stepped in to put distance between the pair. "He's hard, but once you figure out what the message is and what he wants for you and from you, it gets a lot easier with him yelling at you".

Tom Izzo yelling at Aaron Henry on Thursday was a flashpoint moment, an avatar for everyone on either side of the issue to signal what he or she thinks about that brand of coaching. He's not an absentee father, and guys love playing for him. Coach Izzo is direct and honest.

"Good players want to be coached, " Boylen said. "If you make a mistake, you're going to get chewed out about".

The opposing view: Izzo is a great coach who is beloved by his players and has always been willing to berate them in public, even if he rarely has looked as wild-eyed and manic as he did on Thursday, and should be forgiven this lapse because of this context.

"Tom Izzo almost lost it on a player". This was common for the veteran head coach, dating back to the 1990s. Only two coaches - Kentucky's John Calipari ($9.2 million) and Duke's Mike Krzyzewski ($7 million) - will more than Izzo this year.

I've always said Real Madrid is a dream club for every player. "At the moment, I'm happy in Manchester". Pogba then went on to insist he is happy at Manchester United - for the time being at least.

Speaking after the game, Izzo explained he was upset with Henry for not getting back on defense.

"It's about winning. It's about ownership of your actions. What wins in this league is dynamic leadership, and Izzo is a dynamic leader".

"All the injuries he's had, the year he's had, I mean, if he's not the national coach of the year, I don't know who is", Boylen said.

Michigan State is set to take on Big Ten rival Minnesota in the Round of 32, and the Golden Gophers were very impressive from beyond the arc in their win over Louisville earlier today.
