Tom Izzo Called This His No. 1 Senior Class Post-Game

No. 2 Michigan State closed out the regular season with a 91-76 win over Ohio State on Senior Day. In their final home game, national Player of the Year candidate Denzel Valentine (27 points, 13 assists), rugged forward Matt Costello (15 points, 11 rebounds) and sharpshooter Bryn Forbes (14 points) were each outstanding. 

After the win, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo paid that trio and a fourth senior, forward Colby Wollenman, the ultimate compliment. Speaking with the media, Izzo said when all things are factored in, this is the top senior class of his tenure.

When you think of the other incredible talents that have passed through the Spartan program under Izzo, that praise says it all. No doubt, Michigan State's seniors are a major reason why the team is one of the favorites to cut down the nets in April.
