Watch: Izzo, Winston talk Michigan State's big win over Notre Dame

No. 3 Michigan State has found its groove since falling to No. 1 Duke in its regular season opener. The Spartans have now won six straight games, with the latest coming against No. 5 Notre Dame and its high-scoring offense.

The Spartans built a 20-point lead at halftime behind some masterful shooting before fending off a second half Irish rally in a 81-63 victory in East Lansing, Michigan.

NCAA.com correspondent Andy Katz was at the Thursday night clash and caught up with Spartans coach Tom Izzo and sophomore guard Cassius Winston (17 points, seven assists, five rebounds) following the game.
