Spartans in Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Michigan State and Texas Christian will meet in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Two of the nation's best defensive teams, the Spartans and Horned Frogs will play at Sun Devil Stadium on Dec. 29.

No. 13 Spartans' big men key to success

EAST LANSING, Mich. Michigan State will be solid in the backcourt if Keith Appling, Gary Harris and Travis Trice can stay healthy. There are no doubts there. Though, how much Denzel Valentine and Brandan Kearney contribute off the bench remains to be seen. What will determine whether these Spartans are just good or become great will depend on the bigs, as State coach Tom Izzo calls...

Michigan State basketball: Keith Appling is the man

During Michigan State’s 84-39 thrashing of Nicholls State Saturday, junior guard Keith Appling had the opportunity to do something he hasn’t done so much of lately.

Michigan State accepts bid to Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl

After a season of so many close games and many of which ending as close losses, Michigan State still managed to finish the season 6-6 and get to a bowl game. It was quite a disappointing season for the Spartans, who came into this season with such high expectations, ranked as high as 13 in some of the preseason polls. However, Michigan State failed to close out games on several occasions...

Nicholls-Michigan St. Preview

Michigan State is still trying to figure out how to best utilize its suddenly crowded backcourt. The 13th-ranked Spartans will get another chance to see how the pieces fit with guards Gary Harris and Travis Trice back in the rotation on Saturday when they host Nicholls State.

Michigan State Basketball: Spartans need to use this “easy” home stretch to find themselves offensively

EAST LANSING — The No. 13 Michigan State Spartans (5-2) will be hosting Nicholls State (1-2) on Saturday to open the month of December. Michigan State is coming off a disappointing 67-59 loss to Miami (FL) on Wednesday in which they produced very little offense against the aggressive Hurricane defense. Nicholls St. will be the first of a pretty “easy” home stretch for the Spartans...

FREEBYRD!

If you start sinking threes tomorrow, oh how fondly we would remember thee… Hey, today would be fine too, no need to wait any longer to catch fire. The Spartans need Byrd to recapture the shooting touch that he is constantly labeled as having in order to get their half court set functioning well again. MSU can be all too easily defended at present in the half court due to the lack...
