Michigan State guard Keith Appling acknowledges he's struggling.
Appling is also quick to say he still has confidence in his ability to have success this season.
He has scored in single digits in every game during a three-game losing streak, including Sunday's one-point loss at Michigan.
The losing streak has knocked the Spartans out of first place in the Big Ten and to No. 10 in The Associated Press college basketball poll.
Appling insists he's mentally tough enough to bounce back before it is too late with two games left in the regular season followed by the conference and NCAA tournament.
His next chance is Thursday night at home against No. 22 Wisconsin.
