Michigan State basketball: Matt Costello gives Tom Izzo a bear hug after Maryland win

  Matt Costello finished with 15 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks as Michigan State beat Maryland.

Matt Costello was all sorts of happy during No. 11 Michigan State's 74-65 win over No. 7 Maryland.

With the Spartans leading by seven with 4.2 seconds left in the game, Costello sprinted off the court and embraced coach Tom Izzo in one of the biggest displays of affection you'll see on a basketball court.

Costello scooped up Izzo, twirled him around and gave the Spartan head coach a slap on the back with a huge win all but sealed up.

Costello's emotions poured onto the court throughout the game, as he also knocked over fellow Spartan Kenny Goins during a celebration late in the second half.

Costella had himself a great individual game as well, finishing with 15 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks.
