MSU Men's Basketball Searching for Identity

MSU men's basketball coach Tom Izzo addresses the media after Wednesday night's loss to Nebraska.

No. 11 Michigan State fell in the final seconds to Nebraska 72-71 on Wednesday night, making it now three straight loses for the Spartans.  Denzel Valentine's 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left cut the deficit to one point, but he couldn't make the game-winning shot. 

Valentine finished with 24 points, six rebounds and six assists. Deyonta Davis had 13 points and seven points for the Spartans. WKAR's Al Martin reports from the Breslin Center on how the team is searching for answers within itself.
