But MSU basketball right now is rolling like few of Tom Izzo's teams this early in the season, and the No. 3 Spartans got huge offensive plays from senior guards Denzel Valentine and Bryn Forbes, huge defensive plays from Tum Tum Nairn and Matt Costello, and a big bench boost from Kenny Goins in a 71-67 comeback win.
MSU improved to 8-0 for the first time since 2000-01 with plenty of assistance, including 20 points and five three-pointers from senior guard Bryn Forbes; a key strip from Tum Tum Nairn and block from Matt Costello down the stretch; and 13 rebounds in 18 surprise minutes off the bench from former walk-on forward Kenny Goins.
That 15-5 run featured two threes from Forbes, the Goins jumper and the three from Valentine that turned out to be the game winner — off an extra pass from Costello.

"Denzel hit some big shots and so did Bryn," Izzo said, "and that's what those two are for."
