This has been a historically horrible year - no spinning it - but I'm still grateful for my family, including our Boy King, my lifelong friends, and my "Twitter friends," as my wife calls you. And, not least, Earth is still the best planet - by far. So we have that going for us.
Another former #Michigan star gets a deal. Stauskas played in Spain last season.
Eastern Michigan will only say "some players are unavailable for tonight's game," with 7 players getting minutes at Michigan State and an 8th, walk-on freshman Andrew Wells of East Lansing, is here on the bench with a long-sleeve shirt, shorts and sneakers on and hasn't played.
No. 13 #MichiganState leads Eastern Michigan 43-27 @ half. The Spartans trailed by 2 midway thru, then went on 26-8 run. Loyer has 17 (5 of 7 on 3s), Langford has 6 in 1st game in nearly 2 years, and MSU is 9-18 on 3s and shooting 57% overall. Montero leads Eagles with 8.
Eastern Michigan is creating more energy in the fan-free Breslin Center and is in a 19-all tie with No. 13 Michigan State with 7:49 left in the first. The Eagles' zone is giving the Spartans trouble as just as did in Syracuse's upset win in the NCAA tournament in the D.
