Michigan State Basketball, 2008-2009

Aaron CoughlinContributor IOctober 21, 2008

The Michigan State Spartans basketball team is looking like a very strong team this year.

Though they lost big-time scorer Drew Neitzel and all-time leader in blocked shots at Michigan State in Drew Naymick, they have sophomore point guard Kalin Lucas (pictured above). He has shown very good signs of becoming a phenomenal point guard for Tom Izzo, Also, there is a top recruit in freshman Delvon Roe to take the power forward or center spot for Naymick.

Tom Izzo says that Kalin Lucas is the quickest player that he has ever coached. That is saying a lot for a guy with as much experience as Izzo.

This year will be very tough for the Spartans as they play North Carolina at Ford Field in Detroit for the ACC-Big 10 Challenge. They also play the defending National Champions in the Kansas Jayhawks at the Breslin Center.
