Michigan State opened up the NCAA tournament on Thursday with a tougher win than they could have expected over 15 seed Bradley.
Trailing by five in the second half, the Spartans went on a 10-0 run to go up 44-39. Coach Tom Izzo apparently saw something that he didn’t like and during a time-out, confronted freshman forward Aaron Henry.
Izzo went on the floor and chewed out Henry to the point that he had to be physically restrained by a few of his players, most notably standout junior guard Cassius Winston.

The Spartans would pull away after this and go on to win, 76-65.
