Michigan State head basketball coach Tom Izzo is busy preparing for the Spartans upcoming season, but took time out of his busy schedule to speak at a fundraising luncheon for the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids, held at the JW Marriott ballroom. During his speech he talked to a sold out crowd about a variety of topics, including how the YMCA helps young people develop build character.
“When you go to places like the YMCA, I think they help build that,” said Izzo. “It’s one of the greatest things they can do: get the kids off the streets, give ’em a place to go to, give them a place to learn at, give them a place to build relationships. And, hopefully, there’s a seven-footer there who wants to go to Michigan State.”
Coach Izzo guided the Spartans to one NCAA title, six Final Four appearances, seven Big Ten regular-season championships and a conference-best 15 straight NCAA Tournament appearances in 17 years.
