I don't see where he physically went after Henry. From what I read Henry didn't get back on defense. I don't blame Izzo one bit.

Clinical performance from JA Morant to send Marquette home early.

16 assists? Maybe stop doubling on the guy and make him beat you on his own?

Where does Marquette go from here? Ton of talent coming back, but underwhelming season end this year has it looking more-and-more like Wojo is a top-end recruiter but low-end coach. Will it all be wasted? To fail to win the conference this year both in the regular season and the tourney and to get ignominiously bounced in the first round was kind of absurd.

looks like words were exchanged while they were seated. I don't agree with Izzo standing up to get closer to the player, what is that going to do? I guess its up to the coach whether he plays another minute or sits on the bench. hopefully this is the end of it.

While it’s still early in the 1st half, Virginia is getting smoked right now again in the 1/16 matchup, down 28-14 to Gardner Webb.

I just assumed Virginia would come out and take care of business after what happened last year. This is pretty shocking to say the least.

Still the first half, but Virginia down 11 to #16 seed Gardner-Webb...is it happening again? And if it does, I'm sorry but Tony Bennett may have to be let go...

Righted the ship a bit and are up 19 with under 4 to play. Still, that was an inexcusable start.

At the very beginning of the video, Izzo appears to fist-bump Henry in the chest.  Before they reach the bench, Izzo appears to tap Henry's chest with his index finger (partially obscured by an MSU player).  At least twice in the video, Izzo lunges at Henry and has to be restrained by Spartan players. 

To me, that constitutes going after a player physically.

"We have cultivated a whole population of people who are outraged by situations they do not understand and are not even tangentially involved in."

Saw that on Twitter. Found it apt to this absurd outrage over a player getting chewed out. Pretty much every athlete on Twitter has spoken out essentially saying, "yep, sometimes that'll happen to you. You never take it personal and understand the coach is just trying to get the best out of you."

Rumors are though there's another angle taken from the grassy concourse where Izzo clocks Henry with a folding chair, then stands over him chugging a beer while revoking his scholarship on the spot. That video has yet to surface however.

Nice story on the decades-long relationship between Brad Soderberg, Dick Bennett & Tony Bennett, going back to when Soderberg was in grade school in Stevens Point and Dick Bennett was the head coach at UW-Stevens Point.

Soderberg was an assistant coach on Dick Bennett's UW Final Four team and now finds himself as an assistant coach on Tony Bennett"s UVA Final Four team.
