“Did you see the first two threes?” Tom Izzo said after the game, “The one the kid was looking at me, there was one second left on the shot clock, and he launched it and it went in.” Read More…

Opinion: Not Time to Worry About Men’s Basketball

Being a Michigan State basketball fan has had its perks for quite some time now. Unfortunately, the men’s basketball team has been dropped out of the top 25 rankings as of Monday after a tough loss to the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. While it is disheartening to not see a Spartan head among the top-ranked teams in the country, the lack of ranking is deserved.

The basketball team is now 6-3 on the year, a record that has been fluffed up with victories against teams like Santa Clara and the UAPB Golden Lions. The Spartans were forced to rely on a 25-point performance from senior guard Travis Trice in order to beat Navy by a score of 64-59. Read More…
