Branden Dawson Dunk

Like big dunks? You’re in luck, because Michigan State’s Branden Dawson got up and threw one down with authority during Monday night’s game against UMKC at the Breslin Center. The freshman, you could say, wasn’t all that intimated by Kangaroos big man Brad Reid, all 6-foot-11 of him. No, instead Dawson posterized the poor guy. Watch the athletic freshman’s powerful dunk now.

Michigan State's Travis Trice

Michigan State Block Party

Michigan State freshman Travis Trice knows a golden opportunity when he sees one. In Saturday night’s game against Bowling Green at the Breslin Center, Trice proved exactly that when 5-foot-6 BGSU guard Jordon Crawford appeared to have an easy breakaway layup. Trice, of course, had other ideas. He trailed Crawford, closed the gap at the last second and emphatically swatted the would-be layup from behind.
