Michigan State Basketball: Spartans' 5 Biggest Concerns for the Postseason
Associated Press
It's Tom Izzo's favorite time of year—or is it?

Well, it’s March, and you know what that means—“this is Tom Izzo’s time of year” talk is in full swing.

However, his Michigan State Spartans clearly aren’t; Saturday’s embarrassing 53-46 home loss to Illinois was proof of that.

So was the loss to Nebraska, the sweeping at the hands of Michigan and, really, the entire season as a whole.

Once ranked in the Top Five, the Spartans (22-7, 11-5 Big Ten) are in a tailspin. They haven’t won back-to-back games since January—and unfortunately for Izzo, they aren’t showing many signs of turning up their level of intensity.

A Big Ten title is out of reach.

Does that spell doom for Michigan State? Maybe. 

This slideshow will examine five concerns that the Spartans face as they prepare for the Month of Izzo.
