Men’s hoops to take on MSU in exhibition
To kick off the 2013-2014 season, the Grand Valley State University men’s basketball team will head to East Lansing to square off against Michigan State University in an exhibition game on Oct. 29.
The Lakers will take on the Spartans for the fifth time under GVSU head coach Ric Wesley, whose team managed to defeat No. 8 MSU 85-82 in double overtime in 2007. GVSU finished with a record of 19-9 (15-7 GLIAC) last season, which ended with a 70-64 loss to Lake Superior State University in the GLIAC Tournament Semifinals. MSU finished its 2012-2013 campaign with a record of 27-9 (13-5 Big Ten), eventually losing to Duke in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen.
