Tom Izzo held his finger and his thumb less than an inch apart. “I still think we’re that far and I don’t think we’ve played that well,” Izzo said on Monday. In other words, to Izzo, the three-game skid Michigan State is on — as well as a 3-5 mark over the last eight games — isn’t as bad as it might seem. If not for a missed layup here or a turnover there, the Spartans could be sitting atop the Big Ten standings instead of tied for fourth and two games behind Maryland.
