In a heated battle with Memphis, the Michigan State Spartans got into a towel fight during a timeout. Keith Appling and Derrick Nix were not happy with each other and started throwing towels back and forth and had to be restrained in the huddle. The two went to high school together, so obviously this wasn’t anything personal. As Jalen Rose said on Twitter:
@bleacherreport Typical Detroit emotion and passion that I love. No big deal.

It obviously helped get the team back on track as the Spartans went on to demolish the Tigers 70-48.
