We are 38 days away from Selection Sunday in college hoops and the race for the Big Ten Title is heating up. Whether you’re a fan of the Boilers, the Buckeyes, the Badgers, the Fighting Illini, the Hoosiers or the Spartans, the regular season title is still very much in play.

Today on The Dan Dakich Show our focus was on that last team we mentioned, the Michigan State Spartans. Currently sitting in 2nd place, Sparty finds itself in as strong a position as any to win the conference. Most recently, they won a thriller on the road against Maryland earlier this week.

The head coach of the Spartans Tom Izzo chatted with Dan on Thursday about his frequent use of late game timeouts and why he feels they are especially helpful to get everybody on the same page. Additionally, Coach Izzo shared what makes this year’s Spartans different than years past and if he feels there is a true favorite to win it all this year.


Check out Dan’s conversation with Coach Tom Izzo below and keep listening to The Dan Dakich Show, weekdays 12-3pm, on 93.5 and 107.5 The Fan.
