'Journey' spotlights Basabe, Payne & Miles

The episode highlights Michigan State forward Adreian Payne, who has built a special friendship with a young cancer patient in East Lansing. We’ll also profile Hawkeye forward Melsahn Basabe, who was committed to attend Siena College but then rescinded to follow Fran McCaffery to Iowa. Also featured: Nebraska head coach Tim Miles, who discusses his bond with his father.

Enjoyed the stories of the little girl who is an MSU fan and the background story of Tim Miles with his dad’s surgery.

Just want to say good luck to the production staff, if there is continued Big Ten expansion (which is a good thing for the network). I can’t imagine trying to fit in the amount of stories available for 18 schools (and 12-13 players per school).

Might have to go two, 30-minute shows or one 60-minute show to cover 18 schools. Producers should invest in a lot of coffee too (considering the work).
