(WILX) -- Michigan State men's basketball is pre season ranked number one in the nation by some although I'm dubious of that because of the players the Spartans have lost.
But this is a key time of year in my view, because through Tom Izzo's tenure, his players have tended to improve in the off season from one year to the next.
If that trend continues well then just like a year ago, this might be a team with legitimate promise.
The summer time has been crucial through the years in the development of MSU players over those the Spartans face in the winter.
