Once again, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo sits atop the midnight madness throne. The yearly tradition of Izzo’s entrances may have reached a pinnacle on Friday night inside the Breslin Center for Michigan State Madness. Moments after women’s head basketball coach Suzy Merchant danced at center court to Beyonce, Izzo made his appearance as a member of KISS.
Izzo, in full makeup, made his way on stage and performed with the KISS cover band, playing the accordion. Following the rock show, Izzo addressed the fans.
Hours before Izzo’s entrance, Xavier head coach Chris Mack and his two young daughters performed as the Beastie Boys at Musketeer Madness. A valiant effort by Mack, but still not enough to take down Izzo.
