Denzel Valentine gives Tom Izzo game ball in memory of father

Earlier this week, Michigan State Spartans head basketball coach Tom Izzo lost his father, Carl, at the age of 90. On Saturday, Spartans star Denzel Valentine provided us with a touching moment when he presented a game ball to Izzo in memory of the coach’s late father.

It was a great moment that the Spartans caught on camera and shared on social media.

It’s great to see the players rallying around their coach.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Izzo and his family as they deal with this difficult time.
