Michigan State is shaping up to be one of the best teams in college basketball with big wins over Kentucky and Villanova and close loss to Gonzaga.

This week, the Spartans head to the Phil Knight Invitational with a very talented field. They will take on Alabama on Thursday.

As the team heads to the tournament, they announce a new look to compliment their uniforms.

The Spartans will rock all black Nikes with a gold hit on the swoosh. The uniforms for the tournament haven’t been released yet, but fans are anticipating some unique threads.

Michigan State has garnished some much deserved hype from fans and praise from media. Tom Izzo made sure to put together a tough nonconference schedule and so far it is paying off.

The Spartans seem to have improved greatly over the offseason. Last season, they finished 23-13 with a second round exit to Duke.
