Quotes: Tom Izzo pleased with Michigan State basketball’s win over Penn State

It was a great day at the office for the resurgent Michigan State basketball team as they hosted Penn State in some Big Ten action, which is rarely an easy night no matter who you play. The Spartans handled the Nittany Lions at home with a final score of 92 to 61.

The MSU defense smothered Penn State all night, and Malik Hall and Tyson Walker both scored over 20. Jaden Akins, A.J. Hoggard and Tre Holloman also added 10 points each.

After the game, Tom Izzo was extremely pleased about the performance and spoke to the media about his squad. You can find the best quotes from that session below.
