For a change, Tom Izzo and Michigan State entered a season unranked and on the outside of many experts' list of Big Ten title contenders. Izzo worked his magic, per usual, as the Spartans shared the Big Ten crown, won the Big Ten tournament and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tourney to highlight Michigan State's 2011-12 athletic year. To make things even better, star forward Draymond Green won Big Ten Player of the Year and earned first-team All-America honors. The Spartans, ultimately, advanced to the Sweet 16, where it lost to Louisville.
