I love that Phil Martelli was giving so much credit to his younger assistants just now. That's just awesome.— Chris Herring (@Herring_NBA) March 2, 2022

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo spoke as softly and quietly as I can ever recall after Michigan's win and said: "They played better than us, shot better than us, moved the ball better than us."— Larry Lage (@LarryLage) March 2, 2022
The Athletic’s Brendan Quinn
If wondering what Izzo is upset about, I'm 90% sure it's b/c Hunter Dickinson has gone from making the "too small" motion after scoring over whoever is guarding him to now pointing at the Michigan State bench and yelling on his way back down-floor.— Brendan Quinn (@BFQuinn) March 2, 2022
The VBDI PTPER of the night is @umichbball HUNTER DICKINSON as he was dominant vs @MSU_Basketball . @H_Dickinson24 with 33 points & 9 rebounds was just too efficient for Spartans . Yes BUBBLE is over the Maize & Blue will be part of @MarchMadnessMBB— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) March 2, 2022
Guys, I love the Michigan/Michigan State rivalry more than anything in the sporting world.— Justin Rose (@JRoseDet) March 2, 2022
Fantastic theatre each and every time they play.
We’re lucky to have it.

Okay, follow up: Martelli said if basketball doesn’t workout then Dickinson will be a WWE villain. https://t.co/ajXOIlATUa— Jeanna Trotman (@JeannaTrotmanTV) March 2, 2022
Detroit News’ Bob Wojnowski
Upon further review, Izzo and Dickinson appeared to share a handshake. Good for them. Dickinson was definitely an agitator, in addition to scoring 33 in Michigan’s 87-70 victory.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) March 2, 2022
