Every team sport seems to have that special player, a momentum shifter, who can come in and change the game. Michigan State’s men’s soccer team is unique, because it has more than one impact substitute player, spurring the team’s success this season.
The No. 2 Michigan State men's basketball team was able to squeak out a close win on Saturday over the No. 18 Maryland Terrapins in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tourney in Indianapolis, IN at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
No. 11 Michigan State fell in the final seconds to Nebraska 72-71 on Wednesday night, making it now three straight loses for the Spartans. Denzel Valentine's 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left cut the deficit to one point, but he couldn't make the game-winning shot.
MSU Senior Quarterback Connor Cook was sidelined during the second half of the Maryland game at Spartan Stadium on Saturday. Tyler O'Connor lead the offense, as the Spartans were able to escape with a 24 to 7 victory over the Terrapins, moving to 9-1 on the year.
