Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo has always emphasized defense, but in his 23rd year in charge, he might just have his best defensive team yet. Through 10 games, MSU ranks No. 1 nationally in field goal defense with opponents shooting just 33.1 percent. As it currently stands, Izzo’s best previous team in that regard was the 2011-12 squad that held the opposition to 37.9 percent shooting in 37 games.
