Big Ten Media Days Notes & Quotes: Tom Izzo says “We’re going to be a better passing team, and a better running team”

Michigan State University head basketball coach Tom Izzo was the first men’s basketball coach to take to the podium early on Friday morning on the floor of Gainbridge Fieldhouse, the newly renamed home of the Indiana Pacers in downtown Indianapolis.

He only had 10 minutes to address the media and answer questions during the morning session, but he had a lot to say about his team, the Big Ten and some of the other big issues of college basketball.

Sizing Up the Competition

Coach Izzo opened by commenting on the venue for this year.
