Michigan State brings towel-snapping to NCAA Tournament

Derrick Nix and Keith Appling got into a towel fight in the huddle, for whatever reason.

This is a new one (I think). Tensions were high in the Michigan State huddle midway through the second half of Saturday's matchup with Memphis. So high, in fact, that Derrick Nix started snapping a towel. It was ... odd. Very odd.

Observe:

That's Nix and Keith Appling going at it, and they had to be separated. It was all very weird -- something you don't see much of in an NCAA Tournament matchup.

Also, fun fact!

So there's that. Who knows why they were going at it, but things did settle down at least.
