Till next season...
Texas defeated my beloved Spartans today 85-76. So MSU finishes the season with a 22-13 record.
Aside from giving up 85 points, Michigan State's biggest problems today were poor shooting, turnovers and foul trouble. These are the same problems that hampered the team all season and so it is fitting in some cosmic sense that I am unable to appreciate that they were the reason they lost their final game. And yet the team hung in there and was in the game till the final minute despite not playing a pace anything like what they have preferred. That was symbolic of the team's season as well. And remember they did this with no consistent scoring threat and nobody comfortable in the point guard spot.
Thanks to seniors Adam Wolfe, Adam Ballinger and especially Aloysius Anagonye for the memories.
I'm sure Tom Izzo thinks next season is going to be a lot better.
The game conveniently ended just in time to switch over and watch King of the Hill. Did I do that? No I did not.
