Post . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Tom Izzo insists he has no idea what to expect from his team this season.Its easy to see why.Michigan States coach, who was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame last month, has not had his program turn over as much as it has in 15 years. The Spartans are without seven players from last years team, which won 29 games, including the Big Ten tournament final, before being stunned in the opening round of the NCAA tournament to Middle Tennessee State.Denzel Valentine, The Associated Press national player of the year, was one of four players who moved onto professional basketball. Another player graduated and is in medical school at Vanderbilt. Two more players chose to transfer, seeking more playing time.The last time Izzo had that many departures was 2001, when the Spartans went to a third straight Final Four and also had to replace seven players.Instead of being anxious about the challenge, he is fired up.Thats invigorating, to be honest, Izzo said Thursday at his teams media day.In addition to the departures, the Spartans have to cope with the losses -- for at least the start of the season -- of two senior forward due to injuries. Ben Carter, a graduate transfer from UNLV, had knee surgery last week and Gavin Schilling will have knee surgery soon.That will put even more pressure on perhaps Izzos best recruiting class led by possibly the best player he has brought to campus since taking over the program in 1995.Highly touted Miles Bridges leads the group that includes Joshua Langford, Cassius Winston and Nick Ward.I could see us starting four freshmen sooner than later, Izzo said.Bridges, a 6-foot-7 forward from Flint, is ready for the challenge of producing with all eyes on him.Its a lot of pressure, he said. But I dont let it get to me.Winston, a 6-foot point guard from Detroit, has lived up to high praise Izzo gave while talking to assistant coach Dwayne Stephens about him three years ago.I said he could be the best passer since Magic Johnson in this state, Izzo recalled telling Stephens. Two weeks or three weeks of practice has not changed my opinion.Langford, a 6-5 guard from Alabama, will get a chance to play a lot in part because Izzo plans to put two guards, two wings and one post player on the court to play small ball, out of necessity.Ward, a 6-8, 250-pound forward from Ohio, has a chance to play a pivotal role in the post without Schilling and Carter. Ward has lost more than 20 pounds to prepare him for the opportunity.I feel a lot lighter, he said. I jump a little higher and I can get up and down the court better.While Izzo will lean on his freshmen to play early and often, senior guard Eron Harris will get the green light to shoot much more than he did last season in his first year with the team after being a high-scoring guard as a freshman and sophomore at West Virginia. Senior Alvin Ellis, who said he didnt consider transferring as Javon Bess and Marvin Clark did, junior Tum Tum Narin and sophomore Matt McQuaid give the team some relatively experienced options in the backcourt. Like Ward, 6-6 sophomore Kenny Goins is going to get every chance to play on a team that has a thin frontcourt.As usual, Michigan State will have a tough schedule. For the first time, though, they may play three or more top-15 teams in November for the first time. And, they will fly more than 13,600 miles over a 22-day stretch that will include games in Hawaii, New York, the Bahamas and North Carolina at Duke.Were going to find out a lot in the first month, which might not be healthy for me, Izzo said.

Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Rashaan Gaulden Womens Jersey . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. Cheap Panthers Jerseys . Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes. The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey Leagues Oklahoma City Barons this season. Ian Thomas Womens Jersey .
