The Spartans basketball team turned off their iPods to follow his gaze. "Win one for Detroit," Izzo pleaded, and his charges nodded along. In the end the Spartans fell short of the 2009 national championship, but for everything else they accomplished during an unforgettable Final Four weekend in Detroit, they are my Sportsmen of the Year.
