The #10 Michigan State Spartans took a tough home loss earlier this week to the #8 Duke Blue Devils and Mike Krzyzewski 87-75 to fall to 5-3 on the season.

But now they must recover and open Big Ten play. That task just got harder when after practice today, their Hall of Fame head coach Tom Izzo said that for at least the short term, they will be without star freshman guard Mark “Rocket” Watts.

In the above video shot right after practice, Kyle Ahrens talks about married life and playing as a Big Ten player.  He also digs in on what this team and more importantly Tom Izzo needs from him.  Ahrens is an aggressive physical player who has fought the injury bug, but as one of the oldest players on the team, MSU needs him now, RIGHT NOW to dig deep and give more.

The team will return to the hard-court Sunday, December 8, 2019, to open Big Ten play versus Rutgers. That game can be seen on BTN at 7:00 PM and his back here at the friendly confines of the Breslin Center.
