Michigan State's Tom Izzo was asked if he feels vindicated that the Spartans haven't been part of the bad news going on at the CBB trial in New York. He said he doesn't feel like he should feel vindication for doing what he is supposed to do. "For me there is no vindication. It's sad what's happened." Izzo said he hasn't been following the details of the trial close enough to comment on what the trial means for college basketball in a larger sense.
