EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State coach Tom Izzo says he's fired up about his team's chances this season.|
It's easy to see why.
The 14th-ranked Spartans are deep and talented despite losing All-American forward Draymond Green.
Izzo has four of his top six scorers back from last season's team that won Big Ten titles in the regular season and conference tournament and put the program in the NCAA tournament's round of 16 for the 10th time in 15 years.
The Spartans will start the regular season with two road games in consecutive seasons for the first time in nearly 100 years. They'll open against Connecticut on Nov. 9 in Germany and will play No. 7 Kansas four days later in Atlanta.
