Michigan State Basketball: Valentine shines as Spartans cruise to easy victory, 101-46

The Michigan State Spartans hosted St. Cloud State for their second and final exhibition game tonight at the Breslin Center, and the results were as expected as the Spartans cruised to victory, 101-46. This game didn’t quite feature the same storylines as the first exhibition game did with Russell Byrd, unless you count St. Cloud State senior guard Kevin Levandoski being the nephew...

MSU’s Denzel Valentine Posts Heartfelt Message To Teammate Gary Harris Ahead Of NBA Draft

When all is said and done Thursday night, three former Michigan State Spartans (Adreian Payne, Gary Harris, Keith Appling) could be drafted onto NBA rosters. Arguably the player with the most upside is Harris, a shooting guard who chose to leave the university after just his sophomore season. In one of the more heartfelt moments we’ve recently seen on Instagram, his former teammate...

MSU Basketball: Small forward position preview

Out of the five spots on the floor, the small forward position is probably the one worrying Tom Izzo the least going into 2014. He has a ton of guys who can play it, including proven playmakers like Denzel Valentine and Branden Dawson.

Denzel Valentine needs to be huge for Michigan St. and now

Denzel Valentine hit a huge three down the stretch during Michigan State’s second round comeback win over Harvard that won over the hearts and minds of Spartans everywhere. The shot extended MSU’s lead to two possessions in the closing minutes and solidified their comeback. The three-pointer put the game out of reach (pretty much) and gave State some much needed breathing room...

Video: MSU’s Denzel Valentine Had A Sick Behind-The-Back Pass

Michigan State has had a frustrating season, as injuries have forced coach Tom Izzo to shuffle his lineup seemingly on a nightly basis. But for at least one day, the Spartans seemed to be firing on all cylinders. MSU blew out Northwestern in its first game of the Big Ten Tournament on Friday, 67-51, setting up a date with the Wisconsin Badgers in the semifinals Saturday. Along the...

MSU Basketball stumbles against Georgetown Hoyas

Well then… Not much looked good out on the floor of Madison Square Garden for the No. 7 Michigan State Spartans (19-3, 8-1 Big Ten) on Saturday, who were upset by the Georgetown Hoyas (12-9, 3-6) by a score of 64-60. Not the shooting. Michigan State could have helped build the house in The Three Little Pigs that doesn’t get blown down by the big bad wolf in the end with all the...

Tom Izzo wasn’t happy with Branden Dawson and Denzel Valentine (VIDEO)

YouTube Tom Izzo was unhappy (severe understatement) with Branden Dawson and Denzel Valentine while Michigan State was in the midst of blowing a 17-point lead to Ohio State Tuesday.  Izzo expressed his frustration (understatement) during a timeout with two minutes left in regulation. Playing for Izzo is not for the weak.
