A matchup between the Michigan State Spartans and the Minnesota Golden Gophers originally scheduled for Feb. 15 was postponed due to the horrific shooting on Michigan State’s campus which left three victims dead along with five injured. The game has not been rescheduled yet. That has left Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo frustrated at Big Ten officials.

Izzo discussed the postponed game on Thursday and made it very clear that he wants to get this game rescheduled as soon as possible.

According to Kyle Austin of, Tom Izzo is frustrated with the Big Ten office over the situation. He further voiced his frustration, saying that he has much more on his plate and the situation should be handled by the Big Ten office.

“In the last 10 days since this has happened, I’ve had a lot of things on my plate. One is not to be the commissioner or the scheduling man or any of those people. So yeah, I’m a little frustrated. Next question.”

The Spartans currently have a 17-10 record along with a 9-7 conference record in Big Ten play. It is currently unclear what will happen to this postponed game, but another win on their record could certainly help them moving forward.

On paper, this could certainly be a very important game for Michigan State’s chances of potentially making the NCAA Tournament. ESPN bracketologist Joe Linardi currently has the Spartans projected as a seven-seed in the tournament. Another win on their resume could undoubtedly help them secure their tournament spot.

It could also drastically impact the seeding for the upcoming Big Ten Tournament. While Minnesota sits at the bottom of the conference, Michigan State is tied with three other teams for the fifth seed in the tournament.
