Shades of Gray

March, 13, 2009
INDIANAPOLIS -- Tom Izzo met some fiery resistence from backup center Marquise Gray when he removed the 6-foot-8, 235-pounder from the lineup midway through the second half. Gray had provided a strong inside lift from the low post, scoring from the left block several times, and apparently the senior thought he should remain in the game.

Gray had several words with Izzo as assistant Dwayne Stephens and several Spartans attempted to calm him down. Izzo went back down the bench a couple of times to talk to Gray during the next couple of possessions, and everything appeared kosher -- but as of the 7:20 mark of the second half, Gray had not returned to the game.
