Izzo, the longtime and legendary Michigan State men’s basketball coach, made the cut with the likes of former college and NBA stars Allen Iverson and Shaquille O’Neal, among other big-time names.

In 21 seasons as the head coach in East Lansing, Izzo has amassed a 524-205 record (.719) and advanced to seven Final Fours (1999, 2000, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2010, 2015), winning the 2000 national title, the second in Michigan State history and the last won by a Big Ten team.

The tight family it is, the Michigan State basketball community went to Twitter to congratulate Izzo on the worthy recognition.
