Michigan State rebounds from big deficit to trump Maryland

Michigan State rebounds from big deficit to trump Maryland

Beyond that, he has few answers.

Following Michigan State's six-point road win at Maryland on Sunday afternoon, both Izzo and Winston were asked about widespread misconduct and questionable - at best (illegal at worst) - decision-making within the athletic department in regards to the handling of sexual assault and other violent crime allegations against women.

Izzo was grilled by reporters over his former Student Assistant Coach Travis Walton.

Sophomore guard Cassius Winston, who scored all 13 points in the second half after two quick fouls led to his going scoreless in the first half, said the Spartans have become closer as a team while the controversy surrounding their coach has grown, including reports that he might quit.

Izzo would not discuss the specifics of any case but noted: "We will cooperate with any investigation and always have". It'll rightfully be one of college sports' most-covered stories moving forward. "That's about all I'm going to say on it is that we did cooperate with everything".

In another incident later that year, Walton and two players were accused of rape, according to ESPN.

Izzo, who said after Friday night's home win over Wisconsin that he doesn't plan to resign, as university president Lou Anna Simon was forced to do last week, or retire, as athletic director Mark Hollis did, was asked whether he wanted his players to "pay attention" to the controversy that grew out out of the Nassar sex abuse scandal. Izzo was asked why he left.

The sixth-ranked Spartans (20-3) have now won four straight games, but pending investigations off the court has left Izzo's future in limbo. I know he went to Europe to play, and as you know, I'll still say I'll cooperate with any investigation that's made. I did it then, I did it before. "I'm not going to answer any questions that aren't pertaining to basketball or things I'm not going to talk about right now".

Schuette said veteran prosecutor William Forsyth will direct his office's independent investigation of the school's relationship with Nassar, the 54-year-old ex-doctor who worked as an osteopathic physician for USA Gymnastics and was a faculty member at Michigan State.

On Sunday, Maryland took on No. 6 Michigan State in the most important game of the Terps' season.

"I offer my support to coach [Mark] Dantonio and coach [Tom] Izzo in their efforts to rebuild and to help the victims in any way that they can".

"I said just continue, and this was my message before the game, at halftime and after the game, continue to realize that there's people that have gone through a lot, and they get an opportunity to help the healing process a little bit, just a little bit". A Bridges drive followed by a Winston three brought MSU within a point and Schilling's put-back gave the Spartans their first lead of the game at 42-41. He later summed up this weekend by saying, "It's been hard to focus in on basketball because when I do, I feel guilty".
