The primary goal Sunday when Michigan State and Georgia squared off in an exhibition game at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids was to raise money for the American Red Cross. That goal was reached to the tune of nearly $340,000. The benefit for two basketball teams is harder to quantify, but it seems there’s little doubt the Spartans will be much better off for having added the game against the Bulldogs to a preseason schedule that included last week’s meeting with Ferris State and ends Friday at home against Hillsdale.
