The Best Bet Boys
Yesterday in the Maui Jim Maui Invitational #3 ranked Michigan St. was upset by unranked Virginia Tech. This was a close game throughout. Midway through the second-half, VT stretched it's lead out to 10pts and MSU began to answer back. The two teams traded baskets and it appeared the game was still in reach for the #3 ranked team in the nation. That was until VT freshman Landers Nolley II (great name btw) drilled a three with under 1 minute remaining in the game. Nolley II was undoubtedly the MVP of the game leading all scorers with 22 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists. Although it is early VT is undefeated and we could look at this team to be strong all year. Nobody saw this upset coming and I truly believe the Michigan State fans deserve an apology!
Izzo publicly apologizes to MSU fans who made the trip, saying he feels like the Spartans "let them down."— Chris Solari (@chrissolari) November 26, 2019
This is Michigan State's second loss of the season. Hopes were high coming into the season for Sparty and nobody expected them to have 2 losses this early on, but I do not believe this is a sign of things to come. I'd imagine that MSU will still be vying for a #1 seed come tournament time.
Also, hasn't Cassius Winston been at Michigan St. for like 8 years? I feel like he's been a senior the last 3 seasons. It's Perry Ellis all over again
