East Lansing — You could see it in the slump-shouldered posture of Bryn Forbes in the locker room.
“It’s hard to explain,” said Forbes, the senior sharpshooter who kept firing blanks Wednesday, missing his first four open looks and finishing 1-for-8 in the loss.
“I know how to get to this team, and this team will bounce back. But it has been shaken, there’s no question about it. It should be shaken.”

And stirred? Time will tell — Izzo certainly will, too — but as Forbes said Wednesday in a quietly-confused locker room, “We’re gonna learn a lot more about ourselves these next few games.”

We’ve been high on the Crusaders since the preseason, and aren’t hopping off the bandwagon now. The polar opposite of St. Mary’s, Valpo is blazing through the Horizon League (6-0) behind a ferocious defense that’s surrendered more than one point per possession in only three of 19 games. Need more proof? Study how coach Bryce Drew’s club bottled dynamic Oakland scoring guard Kay Felder on Jan. 8 in a convincing 84-67 road victory. The Crusaders hounded him into 8 of 28 shooting and a season-low 78 offensive rating.
