Just how is Tom Izzo going to wow the crowds at tonight's Midnight Madness event?

Mlive.com is reporting it looks like the famed MSU Spartan basketball coach will be getting some help from long-time friend Steve Mariucci.

The annual event is looked forward to almost as much as the big rivalry football game between Michigan State University and the University of Michigan.  Game time is 3:30 tomorrow in East Lansing.

Izzo's past entrances to the Breslin Center have included a motorcycle, .a race car and a an Ironman costume.   Last year, he was shot out of a cannon.
