The Michigan State Spartan basketball team and their Hall of Fame head coach Tom Izzo are ready to go. While still dealing with the death of Zach Winston (brother of Cassius) they are moving ahead.

Spartan Nation was at practice where we talked with guard Aaron Henry. He wanted to tell us about his new tattoo, and we looked ahead to Seton Hall. You can watch the video above but he also addressed:

On Seton Hall and their size..

Just being low, using leverage to our advantage. They are a huge team and they have a lot skill on the wings and at the guard position as well. We have to go in there, as wings, and help those bigs rebound. They are tall, the’yre big, heavy in the front court. We just have to go in there and help rebound with them.

On dealing with everything over the past few days..

It’s not easy, but coach does a great job of just getting us zeroed in, even though our hearts our felt and broken throughout this time. He just does a great job of rallying us together and getting us prepared as a team and putting a stigma more on life is just way more important than basketball. He does a good job of that, and almost makes it like a game within itself. Basketball’s just a game, we have to realize that life is more important.

On his defensive presence against Binghamton..

Just getting more comfortable, like I said being a student of the film. Just watching those type of things and knowing what our opponents are going to do. Know where they like to attack it.

On going on the road to take on a tough team in Seton Hall..

It’s a blessing to step on the court anytime, especially when we are playing in new events like this. Being a part of the No. 1 preseason ranked team in the country, now the Gavitt Games, we get to go to Maui, it’s just a blessing and I’m glad we get this experience before March.

The Spartans return to the court for game three of the regular season on tonight. They will be taking on Seton Hall at 8:30 PM on the road. That game can be seen on FS1.

The Duke Blue Devils will be in East Lansing to take on the Spartans on Tuesday, December 3rd in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. That game can be seen on ESPN and it tips off at 9:30 PM
