Watch Tom Izzo's 90-year-old mother visit Michigan State locker room after OT win

BY Allyssa Lee • December 28, 2016

Michigan State rallied from a double-digit deficit at the half to win 75-74 in overtime against Minnesota in Minneapolis' Williams Arena Tuesday.

It was a thrilling start to the Spartans' conference play. As was the way Michigan State coach Tom Izzo brought his 90-year-old mother, Dorothy, into the locker room to celebrate after the game:

Can't tell what was better: Izzo's introduction, or the way the locker room erupted in joyous cheers and lined up for group hugs upon her arrival. And the one player who politely said, "Thank you for coming."

Spartan basketball: Winners on and off the court.
