Michigan State Spartan Basketball Final Home Game Tonight at Breslin Center
Tom Izzo knows he will be saying farewell to three seniors. He also realizes Michigan State could lose two key players soon.
Tum Tum Nairn, Gavin Schilling and Ben Carter know the No. 1 Spartans' game against Illinois will be their last at the Breslin Center tonight.
Also, Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson Jr. could be playing their last Michigan State home game tonight at 7.
After the game tonight, Nairn, Schilling and Carter will be honored. All three have filled rolls this season for MSU, and a win over the Illini would clinch a share of its first Big Ten regular season title since 2012.
A Big Ten title was one of the big reasons Bridges returned for his sophomore season after bypassing the NBA draft last April. The 6-foot-7 swingman from Flint leads the Spartans at 17.0 points to go with 6.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
