Michigan State 68, Minnesota 52 -- Tom Izzo's 400th Win

One could use many other headlines in that situation, but why? When the BTN cameras caught Izzo near tears towards the end of the game, there's none more appropriate. Especially appropriate was Draymond Green's performance -- 22 points, 14, rebounds, 6 assists, and 1 dawning realization on my part about how much I'm going to miss him when he's gone.

Another thing I'm beginning to realize during the Big Ten season is that Branden Dawson is adapting to Big Ten play. He had 16 points on 7-10 shooting, 4 rebounds, and 4 blocks. If he doesn't break out this season, he will in the next. To conclude this mini recap, the one stat I think is important -- While the Spartans shot 2-11 from three (18.2%), they shot 24-37 from two (64.9%), and that effectiveness from inside made all the difference.

So in this thread, let's celebrate Izzo's 400 victories. I'll start -- the 2009 team defeating a seemingly invincible Louisville team in the Elite Eight with help from three Goran Suton threes in the first half. GO.
