In a post on his personal Instagram page, Michigan State Spartans guard Denzel Valentine thanked his team’s fans on Saturday.
Valentine’s senior season for Michigan State ended with an upset loss, as the No. 2 Spartans fell to No. 15 Middle Tennessee State during the NCAA tournament on Friday.
Valentine averaged 19.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game for the Spartans this season. He won Big Ten Player of the Year and Big Ten Tournament MVP. Valentine was also an integral part of the Spartans team which made last year’s Final Four.
In his post, Valentine said he has “no regrets” for everything he gave the program.
Definitely not what I had in mind the way my college career ended. Just wanted to say Thank you Spartan nation for your support for 4 years. I can honestly say I have no regrets to the way I gave my all to this university and program! I had an amazing time playing the game I truly love here at this special place and I will never forget the memories with my family, teammates, coaches, fans, and whoever played a part in my time at Michigan state. Through the good and bad times I can say Im leaving this university a better man and player. I had a wonderful time at MSU and wouldn't trade any moment, I will never forget this time. Thank you and always go green
