Bball: "Just Like Football"
March 5, 2016

​That was the chant from the Michigan State students as the game was clearly in hand for the Spartans. I can't blame them but it was not much less classy than the MSU cagers were in the Schott last week when they began their regular season sweep of the Buckeyes.
