The Warriors — who sleepwalked through the first half of Game 2 — were down eight points with 4:28 to play in Game 2. They needed to dig down deep and summon up something special, getting stops on one end at baskets at the other. They did just that, scoring 14 points and allowing only one made field goal in those final 284 seconds. And at the center of it all was Green.

After Michigan State finished its practice in Des Moines the day before its NCAA Tournament second-round matchup with Minnesota, the quiet at Wells Fargo Arena was broken by a voice.

There is a narrative about Michigan State’s basketball program under Tom Izzo – that it doesn’t produce NBA draft picks and quality NBA players at the rate of similar programs. There is a notion that Izzo often wins despite underwhelming pro talent, that he produces more Final Fours than he does notable NBA careers. His latest team only fed this idea.

Nor was he picked for the 40-player G-League combine, which precedes it. You won’t find Ward’s name in any NBA mock drafts. He isn’t projected to be among the 60 players chosen next month. In other words, the NBA doesn’t have much interest.
