Just what the NCAA tournament needs: a towel-snapping flare-up between teammates conducted right over their head coach during a timeout.
That’s what happened between Michigan State’s Keith Appling and Derrick Nix, who carried on before the disbelieving eyes of Coach Tom Izzo.
Nix and Appling were high school teammates. Grew up together. Had to be separated in the huddle. Spartans about to get busy.

That towel fight between Nix and Appling was classic.
