Later in the show, Michael Higer joins the studio with Faith Krogulecki to break down Michigan State basketball’s win in the season opener over Florida Atlantic.

Finally, the Detroit Pistons fell to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, and hope to bounce back to finish the West Coast trip strong.
