UPDATE (3:48pm): MSU basketball players Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson will both ride the bench against Penn State tonight.
The university has identified the two as the players - described as "off-campus roommates" - got into a fight at a hotel on the Penn State campus this morning.
Dawson is a starter for the team and Payne is a regular. But the coach say they won't be seeing any playing time against the Nittany Lions.
"A scuffle that began as two players needling each other resulted in a dented wall," according to a written statement by coach Tom Izzo. "We'll deal with this appropriately, and the players will willingly accept responsibility for paying for any property damage. I've spent my entire afternoon meeting with the players involved and they are both sincerely remorseful."
We'll have more on this story online and on air tonight on 6 News.
ORIGINAL STORY (2:40pm) Police at Penn State University are investigating after they say two MSU basketball players traded blows on Wednesday morning.
PSU Police say they got the call from a hotel employee about a fight at the Nittany Lion Inn, a hotel on the Penn State campus, at around 11 a.m.
They say they got a report about two MSU basketball players who had gotten into an argument on the second floor lobby - and that the argument turned into a fight.
PSU Police Chief Tyrone Parham says each player landed a blow to the other's face, and that one player got pushed into a wall. He says both players sustained minor cuts and that there was damage to the wall.
The fight was over by the time officers arrived. The team was on the bus and about to head out to the arena. Police talked to both of the players involved before that happened.
Parham would not release the names of the players because the investigation is still ongoing and because no one has been charged.
Parham says charges could depend in large part on the players, who would need to indicate whether they'd like to see the case go forward. That would be up to both players because it seems they each landed a blow, he said.
The case may not be resolved before the team returns to Michigan.
The Spartans tip off against Penn State at 7p.m. It wasn't immediately clear if the players involved will take part in the game. We have a call into the MSU Athletic Department to find out.
Stay tuned to 6 News and we'll let you know what happens with this case.
