MSU men's basketball's slow start in exhibition loss to No. 9 Tennessee offers team learning

Exhibition games are built to be a learning experience for everyone involved. Players, coaches, referees—everybody has something they can take out of the experience of an exhibition game. Michigan State men’s basketball’s high-intensity exhibition game against No. 9 Tennessee felt a little more like a late-March tournament battle than a game with no stakes. The game came down to the very last second when the Volunteers were able to pull ahead by one point for an 89-88 victory over the Spartans.
