#4 KANSAS 73 #13 MICHIGAN State 79 F...Who said DENZEL didn't have game?..."SPARTY" behind Denzel Valentine's Triple-Double rolls past ROCK CHALK Jayhawk!..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" as IZZONE awaits the much-heralded Class of 2k16 DENZEL's Group is pretty darn good! #KUvsMSU #PhogAllenHoops #Izzone #Big12 #Big10

The Michigan State Spartans were picked by many to finish right at the top of the Big Ten or near and had a lofty Top 20 rankings. The Kansas Jayhawks are suppose to win the Big 12 and get to the Final 4  as they are led by a trip of players in Wayne Selden, Frank Mason Jr., and Perry Ellis and rightfully so. Don;t tell that "Izzone" Bunch they were not suppose to win tonight's game vs the Jayhawks as Valentine took matters into his own hand on this night.

Behind a 29 point and a dozen Boards and Helpers Sparty Star PG/SG/SF/PF/C Denzel Valentine went to work on the Jayhawks and they could do nothing to stop him. The Jayhawks blew a 41-35 halftime lead and when the smoke cleared it was "Izzone" walking to the winner's circle by the score of 79-73.

Yes Jayhawks PF Perry Ellis had 21 points and six boards but it was the play of the Spartans as a unit that spelled victory over Rock Chalk on this night. Both Matt Costello (10 pts 9 rebs) and Bryn Forbes (13 pts) added to Valentine's magic night. Sparty Freshman Matt McQuaid from Duncanville, Texas home of the great Tamika Catchings chipped in with 9 huge points as his Top 50 status in the Class of 2K15 was verified and certified on this night.

Selden (12 pts) and Mason Jr. (14 pts 5 rebs 5 asst) added to Ellis' Night would have been enough on most nights but not to night. "Sparty" moves to 2-0 as Kansas falls to 1-1...
