MSU 58, Florida 52: No. 1 Spartans remain perfect--The Detroit Free Press
Down eight early in the second half, the Gators stormed back to take the lead, then hung in all the way until the No.1 Spartans took over late with defense — riding key plays from Matt Costello, Tum Tum Nairn and Marvin Clark to a 58-52 triumph. Denzel Valentine and Bryn Forbes were all over it as well on a day that saw them shoot 10-for-28 combined.

"I think it proves why we're No.1," said Costello, who had eight points, six rebounds, three blocks and a hustling steal under the MSU basket with 3:24 left and the Spartans nursing a 54-50 lead. "They can honestly suck shooting the ball, and we still come out with a win. Bryn played his heart out. I've never seen that man play so physical. ... Zel struggled a little bit at the beginning, but he pulled himself together and led us to a win."
And Izzo called Forbes (12 points) his "star of the game," even though the senior guard shot 1-for-7 from long range. The one conversion was big, giving MSU a 51-47 lead with 6:02 left, but Forbes made himself essential with defense and rebounding.

Denzel Valentine, who has been playing like the best player in the country this season, was out of sorts the entire night. He scored 17 but was just 5-for-17 from the field while fellow senior guard Bryn Forbes made only one of the seven 3-pointers he took.
And it continued with players up and down the roster making huge contributions. Forbes, who was the star of the game according to Izzo for his hustle grabbing loose balls and grabbing six rebounds, made his one 3-pointer to give Michigan State a four-point lead with six minutes to play.

But that 3-pointer came with six minutes to play and put Michigan State ahead by four, a lead it would not relinquish. And Forbes, who played a team-high 34 minutes, was as important to the victory as anyone.

“My star of the game would have been Bryn Forbes,” Izzo said. “He missed every good shot he took; I thought he took all good shots. The job he did at tracking down loose balls and playing hard and going to get rebounds — all the things that we have been pushing him to do for the last two years. I am really, really, really proud of Bryn.”
