Now that we’ve all watched the clip of Tyrese Maxey’s three 78 times, let’s revisit another classic moment from last night’s Champions Classic. Just before tipoff, Holly Rowe interviewed both John Calipari and Tom Izzo, which was both really awkward and really awesome.

Obviously Izzo and Cal are friends or this wouldn’t have worked at all; did you catch Cal’s playful jab about Tyler Ulis, who picked Kentucky over Michigan State back in 2014?
“He’s got a point guard [Cassius Winston]. I had a kid, Tyler Ulis, for a little while, you got the same guy. They kind of make coaching a little easier, don’t they?”
Izzo nodded slowly, smiling.
“If it gets bad, let’s you and I go outside,” Izzo quipped after Calipari lamented about his team’s youth.
Not that it would ever happen, but if it did, all of my money is on Izzo.
