Oakland Golden Grizzlies

Men’s Basketball Roars Past Grizzlies

Coming into Sunday’s matchup, the Golden Grizzlies of Oakland University had been an unpredictable game for the Spartan hoop team. Last year, MSU pulled out a narrow four-point victory on Oakland’s home court. This year, that was not the case.

The final score of the game was 87-61 MSU, a victory that came behind some prolific marksmanship from beyond the arc. A three-point percentage of 58.8 with 10 of 17 three-point shots that MSU attempted finding their mark made it a tough night for the Grizzlies. Read More…

Early Season Games to Challenge Young Lady Spartans (Games 1-7)

A young Spartan women’s soccer team finished the 2013 season with a record of 9-8-2, but this season a more experienced and eager team is ready for the challenge that lies ahead of them, especially in Big Ten play.

“It’s going to be a great challenge, and I think with 14 teams now, competing not only for the Big Ten title, but eight slots in the (Big Ten) tournament, I think the ratio there might be the most difficult challenge in women’s college soccer,” head coach Tom Saxton said. “I don’t think anybody else faces that kind of set of numbers.
