Men's Basketball msuspartans.com —  MSU opened its four-game trip in Italy with a 98-54 victory over Basket Fiorentina, the new professional team in Florence. The Spartans shot .576 from the field in the victory. Bryn Forbes led MSU with 18 points and Denzel Valentine added 16. "All in all, I thought we shot it really well," said head coach Tom Izzo. "(Denzel) Valentine and (Bryn) Forbes were great. I thought (Gavin) Schilling played better the second half. We got something out of a lot of different guys. There were a lot of positives, but we have to keep in mind that was a club team, and now we will play three national teams. It’s going to be a lot, lot, lot, lot, lot different."
