Meeting and Exceeding Expectations
It is time to honor and sit back in awe of what the Michigan State men's basketball team accomplished this season.
We were at Breslin at Midnight (very out of character for us) last October when the team was introduced, and the hopes were high. We were at the Green/White game after an exciting football victory, and got to know the team during the early season wins. It was a fun season with a lot more highs than lows. The comeback victory over Wisconsin in front of Magic Johnson and the returning 1979 National Championship team was my personal highlight.
The honors are rolling in:
Player of the Year-Kalin Lucas, Coach of the Year-Tom Izzo
Defensive Player of the Year-Travis Walton
And the talented freshman: Delvon Roe, Korrie Lucious, and Draymond Green
Good luck to the team in the upcoming tournaments
