Tom Izzo took his team over to Germany to win a basketball game against Connecticut. But while they’re there, the players and coaches have met and hung out with the troops stationed in Ramstein, put on a basketball clinic for the young Dirk Nowitzki’s of the world and took a quick jaunt on a C-130 transport plane.
Here’s video of their flight on the plane that transports troops, food and cargo. Coach Izzo was stoked about his time spent in the cockpit looking like a total badass (above). The pilot on the left, Todd John Beales, is from Izzo’s hometown – Iron Mountain, Michigan.
