ScoutTV: Izzo Roundtable

"As I told him during one timeout: It's human to feel the pressure, it's human to lose a little confidence in yourself, it's human to get frustrated.

"But when he passes up a couple of shots, he's probably going to hear it from me more than for any defensive lapses."

Coach Tom Izzo talks about how Neitzel has handled the pressure of high expectations, what the team needs to do to be successful, colorful halftime messages to a struggling team and more.
