Izzo's Spartans will contend in 2013
March 25, 2012 - Burt Angeli
Tim Staudt, a veteran Lansing sportscaster and State Journal columnist, looks for Tommy Izzo’s Spartans to challenge again in Big Ten Conference basketball.
“I’ll make the Spartans a solid Big Ten contender again next season because many other teams in the conference will be loaded with as many if not more question marks than Izzo will face,” Staudt wrote.
“There will be playing time available for the four incoming freshmen, but the number one key, in my judgment, is how much more improvement in the off season players like Keith Appling, Adreian Payne and Derrick Nix make.
“And of course Branden Dawson has to get healthy and pick up where he left off when he went down in the regular-season finale against Ohio State.”
