Thomas Kithier entered the NCAA transfer portal on Tuesday. The junior forward is the third Spartan player to do so since MSU’s season ended with a First Four loss to UCLA. The 6-foot-8, 230-pound Kithier is listed as a graduate transfer in the database, clearing the way for him to play immediately at his next school if he decides to leave MSU, though all transfers this offseason are expected to be granted immediate eligibility.

The sheer fact that Josh Langford made it through the season more or less healthy has to be viewed as a gigantic accomplishment. Not only that, Langford started 26 out of 27 games, while only missing one contest. Considering his freakish injury history in recent years, it not only speaks to his will while fighting back but also to his tremendous heart.
