Player of the Week Nik Stauskas Nik StauskasStauskas did a little dance with the ball, made a little love with the net, and got down in East Lansing on Saturday night. With this week’s performance, I believe Stauskas has currently solidified himself a spot on the All-American First Team....

Player of the Week Gary Harris, Michigan State Gary HarrisWe are officially one-third of the way through Big Ten conference play. Crazy, right? It’s not a coincidence that this week’s POTW is the best player on a team undefeated in conference play. With Keith Appling hobbled by a sore...
