Tom Izzo has his basketball team rolling once again. Tonight, they will host the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa has been the only team this season to beat Izzo's club. That was one of the games Denzel Valentine was out with his knee injury.

Well, he is back now.

This MSU team is very strong. Tom Izzo has to be very fired up for the way this season will unfold. The Spartan hoop team will be playing the heart of their schedule coming up. They could get much stronger in the next few weeks.

They now have a situation that is very intriguing. True freshman and reigning Mr. Basketball Deyonta Davis is now getting some strong looks from some NBA scouts. Davis shares time with other players. But that's what the NBA does--drafts players on upside and potential. If Davis is told he could be a first-round pick he needs to go to the NBA.

Tom Izzo has some great true freshman coming to MSU next season. But that's then, not now. With the cast of players they have this season they should go deep into the March NCAA College Basketball Tournament. This team has some key ingredients to have a strong showing in March-- depth and leadership.

And don't forget Tom Izzo is Mr. March.
