The biggest debate from the first day of the 2019 NCAA tournament was about Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo furiously screaming at his player Aaron Henry during the Spartans first-round win, an incident in which Henry's teammates got between the two.

He made his feelings very clear. Izzo continued to single out Henry in the player's huddle and needed to be held back by his players once again.

Following the game, Henry was asked about getting yelled at by Izzo and his answer was flawless. The longtime Spartans coach defended his actions after the game. Sometimes that means getting fired up and yelling at them. They were effort related. But I tell you what, if I was a head of a newspaper and you didn't do your job, you'd be held accountable. "He did make a couple of big buckets".

Immediately after the time out was whistled, Izzo charged onto the court and tapped Henry (far right) in the stomach before jabbing his finger in the 6foot6 guard's face.

The win sends Michigan State on to the round of 32, where it will take on a familiar foe in Minnesota.

"It's nothing new, it's just responding to it, accepting the coaching, not having a pity party for yourself, just being a basketball player and go respond", Henry told the Detroit News.
