Video: John Beilein, Tom Izzo after Michigan's 60-59 win over Michigan State

By Nick Baumgardner

Make it three in a row.

For the first time since 1998, the Michigan basketball program has a three-game winning streak against in-state rival Michigan State.

The 20th-ranked Wolverines got 20 points from freshman point guard Trey Burke and a game-winning layup from senior Stu Douglass to knock off the ninth-ranked Spartans on Tuesday, 60-59.

The two teams haven't seen the last of one another, though, as a rematch date is set for Feb. 5 in East Lansing.

Izzo looks down the entire time he is talking to the press. He is mumbling so much, he's hard to understand. Michigan just completely outplayed his team and he's blaming the officiating?

Is Izzo standing in a hole?

If you think Izzo is classy, time to go watch the post game interview, or the game.....
