Izzo only called one timeout during the first half of tonight’s NCAA championship game vs. UNC. The timeout was called with 6:45 left. By then, the damage was done. Why wasn’t a timeout called during the first 10 minutes of the first half to kill some of UNC’s momentum and try to calm down his young team? TV timeouts don’t count – there needed to be a “disciplinary” timeout EARLY!
I’m almost positive this question will be asked. Press Conference now on ESPN News. Tune in!
[Update: The question wasn’t asked. The press blows. Izzo sort of tried to put out the fire by saying he called a timeout. Yeah, he did. With 6:45 to go in the 1st half (see above) and the Spartans down 20-43. ]
