WATCH: Tom Izzo speaks at MSU basketball media day


EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Today is media day for Michigan State basketball, and we had live coverage of Tom Izzo’s press conference that happened at 12:30 p.m.

Michigan State comes into the year with a very different roster than the team who lost to UCLA in the NCAA tournament play-in game last year.

Highly touted freshman Max Christie is expected to make an instant impact this season for MSU. In addition, the Spartans brought in a transfer at point guard, Tyson Walkers, who is also supposed to see significant playing time.

The Spartans also brought in two other freshman guards who could see playing time, Pierre Brooks and Jaden Akins. The rest of the roster will be filled out with some familiar faces who Spartan fans will probably recognize.

The Spartans start the season unranked in the AP poll and they will kick off their schedule on Nov. 9 in the Champions Classic against Kansas.
