Pierre Brooks played seven minutes Tuesday night at Michigan, tying the second-most minutes he’s played in a game all season. He’s OK with that right now. He wasn’t always. Brooks’ freshman season at Michigan State has been a test of his maturity, patience and understanding. If you talk to him these days, he sounds like a 19-year-old who realizes his time will come and that how quickly that happens is largely up to his own work and discipline. If you talked to him before Christmas, you might have met the Grinch.
