Tom Izzo's Midnight Madness entrances have become one of the most anticipated events leading up to the Big Ten basketball season. Izzo stole the show again on Friday night as the Spartans' head coach made a KISS-inspired entrance to the event, accompanied by his family and several former Spartan basketball players.

Have a look at it here:

"Everybody likes the shoes, right," Izzo joked. "I can finally look Branden Dawson eye-to-eye for the first time."

The team followed that up with several shooting contests, before concluding the night with an intrasquad scrimmage.

The Spartans open the regular season on Nov. 14 at Navy.
