    Noteworthy quotes:

    Izzo:"I thought it was one of the tougher, better games that I've seen watching this thing over the last years."

    Wood: "Coach has put me in a good situation, and Draymond believed in me and my team believed in me, and they just wanted me to stay aggressive on offense and play as good defense as I can."

    Green: "One thing we always talk about is we never play for revenge at Michigan State. It's never about getting someone back. They took the last game. They did screw up some things for us, but it's more so looking ahead. And we were playing for a No. 1 seed, which we knew that was a possibility. And we were playing to do something that hasn't been done here since '99, 2000. That's all the motivation we needed."
