08:15 AM ET 02.28 | Eyes on the prize, Spartans. Tunnel vision was on Tom Izzo's mind after learning that his team had clinched at least a share of the Big Ten title without moving a muscle. The Spartans held a team meeting after Wisconsin upset Ohio State on Sunday, and the coach complimented his players before issuing them a challenge to not let self-congratulation distract from the bigger picture. "This is our seventh in my era, so been there, done that before," Izzo said of a Big Ten championship. "It's going to be great, and there's going to be a day for it to be really special for hopefully you, for me, for them, for our fans. It's just not now because our goal at the beginning of the year is to play deep into the NCAA tournament and win a Big Ten championship."
