INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Drew Crawford walked off the court with 43 seconds left in his final Big Ten Tournament game to an ovation from fans and was embraced by Michigan State coach Tom Izzo.
"I told him it's been an honor playing against his teams," Crawford said after Friday night's 67-51 loss to the No. 22 Spartans in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals. "Michigan State's an unbelievable program. It means a lot that he's always respected me as a player. So it was nice to send it off that way."
Crawford walked off the court as Northwestern's No. 2 career scoring leader.
