Men's Basketball mlive.com —  Bryn Forbes made as many 3-point shots in the first 2 1/2 minutes of Saturday's game at Crisler Center -- two -- as he did the first two games he played on Michigan's home court. And the Lansing product was a long way from being finished. Forbes poured in a game-high 29 points in leading No. 10 Michigan State to an 89-73 victory over the rival Wolverines before a sellout-crowd of 12,707.

Men's Basketball isportsweb.com —  Despite the Michigan State basketball team’s ability to scorch the net from the three-point line as of late, the Spartans need to go back to the paint for their contest against Michigan.

Men's Basketball detroitnews.com —  Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn Jr. hasn’t played a game in more than two weeks, and in fact, he’s hardly walked anywhere without a boot on his right foot over that same amount of time.

Men's Basketball freep.com —  If Michigan State’s playing rotation was still in flux, we would have seen it Sunday night against Rutgers. We would have seen more of Javon Bess or Marvin Clark. This was a 96-62 blowout win, against a team devoid of size and hope.

Alvin Ellis next. At some point injured guard Tum Tum Nairn will join the mix. That’s the group.
