This game was ugly at the beginning as both MSU and Boise State were missing easy buckets. The Spartans turned to Denzel Valentine and he led MSU to victory 77-67 while scoring a career high 32 points. Not all games will be easy for MSU this year, and Boise State gave MSU a good test. The only other Spartan to score in double figures was freshman Deyonta Davis. The Spartans will likely play No. 11 Arizona on Sunday at 10 pm barring any upset. MSU can leave California with a tournament title while the football team can claim the Big Ten East title with a win on Saturday. Sounds like a good Thanksgiving.
Michigan State shot up the rankings today to move to No. 3 in the country, and they flex their muscles against the Eastern Michigan Eagles by outrebounding them 56-29 in a 89-65 win. TumTum Nairn is battling some pain but still managed to dish out a career best five assists in only 18 minutes. Eron Harris joined the fun and scored a season-high 10 points as his first double-digit points of the season while grabbing a career high tying seven rebounds. The Spartans are clicking right from the season which is rare to see and they are doing it without Gavin Schilling. When he comes back watch out.
