Injured senior Harris gets special moment in win (0:56)

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Why do people love Tom Izzo? Because he lets Eron Harris have a senior on-court send off. That's why.

Ward's and-1 gets Breslin Center rocking (0:31)

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

If Tom Izzo can turn this Michigan State team - now down three guys- into something special, he is officially the Harry Potter of college basketball.

McQuaid spins and hits fadeaway jumper for Spartans (0:16)

Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

Whatever happens with Michigan State this season -- whether they go to the tournament, whether Miles Bridges declares (and both seem likely) -- the prospective Cassius Winston/Josh Langford/Nick Ward core should terrify the Big Ten as early as next fall.

Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

Nigel Hayes has gotten really, really good at dislocating and/or hooking with his off arm without really extending it or making it look obvious. Whether this is clever or cheap probably depends on whether you're a Wisconsin fan or not, but it sure is effective.

Matt McQuaid has two three-point plays. Not in his career, not in a season, not in one game, but in the same half. Spartans 32-21.
