Tom Izzo is one of college basketball's winningest coaches...unless he's facing Mike Krzyzewski.
Saturday night, Izzo's Michigan State squad fell to Coach K's Duke team in the Final Four, 81-61. It's the biggest margin of defeat for an Izzo-coached Spartans' team in the NCAA Tournament, ever. The loss gives the 60-year-old coach a 1-9 career record against Krzyzewski.
Following the contest, Izzo was reportedly muttering "I'm so sick of losing to them" as he walked to the locker room at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

On this night, Izzo simply ran into a much more talented team. There's no shame in falling to this Blue Devils' team.
Duke will face the winner of the Kentucky-Wisconsin game Monday night.
