If you’re a Michigan State basketball fan, it’s been a rough stretch. Not only have the Spartans gotten off to a 2-4 start in Big Ten play, but three games — at Iowa, home against Indiana, and home against Illinois — have now been postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the program. The next game Michigan State is eligible to play is on Thursday, Jan. 28, at Rutgers, and that is far from a sure thing to take place at this current juncture.

For a team that needs to start piling up victories, potentially losing opportunities is not ideal. But that’s exactly the position Michigan State is in. As much as the Big Ten will try to get every game played, there are no guarantees. “The goal is to still get every team to be able to play 20 Big Ten games,” said Kevin Pauga, associate athletic director at Michigan State and a key member of the conference’s team on scheduling across all sports.

While Tom Izzo’s crew may be struggling mightily on the court this season, the many Spartans on NBA rosters are, collectively, having the best start to a season in quite some time.
