How about this, guys? You are getting two articles in the matter of a few hours. Finally, we have news out of East Lansing. It was announced earlier today that Tom Izzo has chosen Saddi Washington for the opening left by Mark Montgomery, who took the head coach job at Detroit Mercy. Obviously, this hire brings up mixed feelings for us Spartans as Washington’s previous employer is a notorious cheater our biggest rival, but I have to remind you that Washington actually comes from a Spartan household. Both his parents and one of his brothers attended Michigan State; his father, Stan, played basketball for the Spartans in the 60’s.
