Draymond Green addresses Michigan State controversy

Screengrab via @Redbird_MBB

Michigan State alumni Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors and Le'Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers are responding to the sexual assault scandal swirling on campus. "I'm sure it was draining at the end for me". Tom Izzo is a 62-year-old Hall of Famer who's been coaching college basketball for 39 years, the last 23 as Spartans' head coach. "And I hope we'll rally around people that need us".

Joshua Langford scored 19 points to lead a second-half surge that the Spartans to their fourth straight victory.

"There's been a lot of talk, a lot of distractions, " Michigan State sophomore guard-forward Miles Bridges said.

"We keep it tight in here", Winston said. This is just really a family. We have coach Izzo's back, he has ours. "I just think he's happy we won the basketball game". We've had a little adversity.

"Well, as I said before, we'll cooperate with any investigation and always have, " Izzo said. We've done it before and we'll do it moving forward.

"I'm going to worry about my team, I'm going to worry about the survivors, and worry about what I do".

Pressed on why Walton left the program that year, Izzo said: "I don't know what you mean".

"As a die-hard Spartan fan, as an alumnus, as a supporter, I wish those who were affected, touched by it, broken by it, shaken, whatever it did to you, I wish them well in their recovery". 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. "Looking back at the way sexual assault allegations have been handled by your basketball program, do you have any regrets?"

"I want them to pay attention", Izzo said. One of the players refused to speak with police, while the other player corroborated the victim's claims, evening stating "I understand how she would feel that she was not free to leave".

When asked about Walton, Izzo did not have a lot to say.

"I thought the atmosphere here was phenomenal", he said.

"I've been through a lot more than my guys have been through", he said. This is something that affects them.

"I offer my support to coach (Mark) Dantonio and coach Izzo in their efforts to rebuild and to help the victims in any way that they can. Theres 140-something women that we all feel more sorry for".

On Sunday, the Spartans came to Maryland and played a poor first half, falling behind by 16 at halftime and shooting 27.1 percent from the field.

Izzo's No. 6 ranked Michigan State Spartans rallied from down 13 to defeat the Maryland Terrapins 74-66.

"We've been awful on the road", Miles Bridges said. Both Izzo and Mark Dantonio were targeted heavily in the report, which "found a pattern of widespread denial, inaction and information suppression" of sexual assault allegations at Michigan State.

After seven days of emotional testimony from more than 160 women and girls describing sexual assault by Nassar, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina of the Ingham County Circuit Court in Lansing, Mich., sentenced Nassar on Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison. He wanted to talk basketball.

Izzo advised his players of how to handle questions about off-court issues, using his own gaffe while discussing Nassar a week ago as a cautionary tale. "And I hope the day comes when we can be a real, real part of the healing process face-to-face and helping".

"You don't put up walls". You've got to listen to it.
