Michigan State won't be prominent in the polls to begin the men's basketball season and the Spartans are now without another starter for the coming season-- Delvon Roe announcing Thursday his career as a Spartan is over. He started for three years, but has battled knee injuries ever since his senior year in high school in Cleveland cut that season short. Roe decided enough is enough and so now he will stay on scholarship and graduate next May.
Roe is now a father and he loves his future as an actor, loves to play golf and is anxious to move on with his life. He says it was his hardest decision ever to give up basketball, but he'll stay around the program this season before leaving with his diploma. MSU has to replace guards Kalin Lucas and Durrell Summers so there will be plenty of opportunities for playing time this coming season.
The challenges for MSU coach Tom Izzo will be greater especially now with an established front line starter Roe out of the picture.
