MSU leading Michigan at halftime

State News Top Stories - March 16, 2014 - 4:35pm

Yesterday after the game, junior guard Travis Trice made it clear this team is trying to give the sophomores a ring.

Well, sophomore guard Gary Harris is trying to give himself a rock, as his 13 points have helped MSU take a 38-29 halftime lead over UM in the Big Ten Tournament final.

MSU is dominating the rebounding game, as freshman forward Gavin Schilling and senior forward Adreian Payne each have four boards to give the Spartans a 20-11 advantage.

MSU’s defense has held UM to 31.8 percent shooting, but Wolverine guard Nik Stauskus has filled up the hoop for 13 points.

UM opened up with back-to-back 3-pointers by Nik Stauskus and Derrick Walton Jr.

Thank a teacher

MSU News - March 12, 2014 - 12:13pm
I remember the day clearly. I was in eighth grade and at that awkward stage trying to figure out who I was and who I wanted to be. My language arts teacher, Mrs. Streit, pulled me aside and asked me why I wasn't trying harder. I had been doing well in the class, so I wasn't sure what she meant. She explained that she knew I could be a great writer, but I wasn't putting the effort in. We had a creative writing assignment every week and she asked that I just think more deeply and spend more time with that week's assignment. She said she was excited to read what she knew I could write. So, I took her advice. Instead of waiting until the last minute, I did as she asked. That week, the class voted my story the best in the class, something I had never won before. With newfound confidence, I put in the effort every week and won many times after that. A passion was ignited. That teacher had more confidence in me than I had in myself and she knew just what to do to bring it out. From that moment on, I took pride in my writing and always put the effort in. Look at me today-writing. In every job I've ever had (well, maybe except the movie candy counter) I've been tapped to write, and I couldn't be happier. Would I be in this same place without that one special teacher pointing me in this direction? I don't know for sure but I'm guessing my life might be different. Mrs. Streit mattered, because I mattered to Mrs. Streit.
