Izzo handed one-game suspension

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State coach Tom Izzo will serve a one-game suspension for a secondary violation of NCAA rules related to a summer basketball camp.

Michigan State officials said late Friday afternoon that the school employed someone associated with a potential recruit during a basketball camp in June. The person was paid $475 for five days of working with middle school-aged campers. Izzo said at a somber news conference he regrets what happened, but he called it an unintentional violation of the rules.

Izzo will sit out the No. 14 Spartans' game Saturday night against Prairie View A&M.
