Tom Izzo tells player to throw ball out of bounds to honor seniors

Tom Izzo has his boys coached up nicely. If he says throw the ball out of bounds, they listen.

During Michigan State’s Senior Night victory over Iowa, Izzo instructed┬áDenzel Valentine to intentionally turn the ball over so that fans could honor the outgoing class. Keith Appling got a nice ovation from the crowd, and reserve guard Dan Chapman got to play the final minute in his last game at the Breslin Center.
