No one in basketball is more manically driven than Draymond Green. Except for his former coach, Tom Izzo.  They are connected by the coach-player relationship, of course. But these days they are connected by so much more. Izzo just went through the toughest year of his career at Michigan State. Green just went through the toughest week of his. They survive by relying on each other.

When things started getting tight in the final minutes on Saturday, Michigan State was looking for someone to step up and take the game over. On the road for another tough nonconference game against Florida, the usual suspects weren’t exactly playing well. Cassius Winston looked worn out most of the game and Nick Ward wasn’t playing well in the defensive end.

When Kyle Ahrens is overcome with exhaustion late in a game, he looks over at Michigan State’s bench, his old home, and grits his teeth. “There are glimpses in my mind, ‘Would you rather be on the bench again? Or would you rather be tired right now?’” Ahrens asks himself. “I’m pushing myself through it.” The bench, to Ahrens, represents injury and frustration and precious time wasted.
