For Spartans, it’s seniors to the rescue--The Detroit News
Looking to end a three-game skid last Saturday when they played Maryland, it was No. 12 Michigan State’s trio of seniors who got the Spartans back on the winning path. Bryn Forbes broke out of a shooting slump to score 25 while Denzel Valentine scored 19 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and handed out eight assists. Add to that the emotional effort from an injured Matt Costello (15 points and 12 rebounds), and it was the perfect formula.

“The good news is my three seniors really played well,” Izzo said. “Costello probably had his best game on leg and a half and Valentine and Forbes played pretty well, and Forbes played pretty well defensively, too. Your seniors are the ones you need in cases like that.”
