Michigan State Men’s Basketball: The offseason has been bizarre

The 2021-2022 season ended for Tom Izzo and the Michigan State men’s basketball program on March 20, after the Spartans fell to the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA Tournament’s Round of 32.

Roughly two months later, a lot has changed for MSU — and not in a positive way, for the most part.

Michigan State had three players with remaining eligibility enter the NBA Draft: senior forward Gabe Brown, senior center Marcus Bingham Jr. and freshman shooting guard Max Christie.

Brown and Bingham both could have retuned for an extra year of eligibility due to the waiver granted by the NCAA to all 2020-2021 winter athletes because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
