Oh look, Tom Izzo is complaining loudly on the sideline and causing the refs to make BS calls.  

I would love nothing more than for some bench guy on OSU to just run him over when he's on the court.

I feel like there's pressure from the people at the top for refs to call flagrant fouls, at least when the foul is in doubt and being reviewed.

For the refs it's better to call the flagrant and be wrong than for them to not call the flagrant and have their bosses tell them "you should've called the flagrant". That's why like 95% of hook and holds are called after the initial review.

I'm not watching the game, but periodically checking the box score.  Are Foster Loyer's stats legit?  I swear I see 9 points next to his name, which I assume means a trifecta of 3 point makes.

Yeah he's always been a great shooter, which is why he has made it to this level of basketball.

If you're that undersized, you have to have been pretty good at something to make it to D1 basketball.

He's a guy that you can't leave open under any circumstance. If you keep pressure of him, he simply cannot score.

He can really shoot the ball.  I watched him live ten or so times in high school.  He was one of the purest high school shooters I have ever seen.  I do question how the hell OSU allowed him to get off three uncontested shots though.  At 4'11, he should not be difficult to guard on the perimeter.
