Frustration wanes amid another March run for Izzo, Spartans

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) It's times like this when all the frustration seems worth it to Tom Izzo. The ups and downs of a long season having finally given way to another exhilarating run in the NCAA Tournament.

"I wouldn't trade anybody as far as the way these guys have handled things this year, the class in the way they've dealt with things," Izzo said. "What they are as students, what they are as people. I'm cool with it all."

On Friday night against Oklahoma, Michigan State will play in the Sweet 16 for the seventh time in eight years, a span of success that probably did more to enhance Izzo's reputation than even the national title he won 15 seasons ago. This year's March surge comes after a regular season in which the Spartans missed free throws, lost games in overtime and generally tested their 60-year-old coach's patience. But that's practically become a routine at Michigan State, where Izzo and his players seem to relish winning the hard way.
