ScoutTV: Izzo on Neitzel

Drew Neitzel is the straw that stirs the drink for this year's Green-and-White hardwood ballers. After a down game against Minnesota, shooting just 2-11 from the field and going 0-6 from 3-point land, coach Tom Izzo shares his thoughts on Michigan State's star player.

"I looked at the number of shots taken (by Neitzel) because I think it's concerning to some people, and maybe even to me to be honest with you," coach Tom Izzo said at his weekly press conference.
