Derrick Nix Hit Cody Zeller in the Balls, But the Referees Didn't Call Anything [UPDATE: Another GIF]

Derrick Nix of Michigan State got in a shot below the belt to Indiana star Cody Zeller late in the Big Ten’s GAME OF THE YEAR. Referees saw something and stopped play, then spent a few minutes looking at replays before concluding … hey, we know something happened, but replays were inconclusive! So Nix got away with one.

What should have been called? A flagrant foul. That’s a dirty play. At the time, Michigan State led 66-63 with just over two minutes left.

Tom Izzo, the class act that he is, pulled Nix out of the game anyway.

Because you want to see it first!
