V-Cast: Talking Jabari Parker at Jenison
EAST LANSING - Michigan State hasn't played a basketball game in Jenison Field House since 1989.
But the building that Magic put on the map looks as good as ever, as Michigan State celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Game of Change with a weekend of basketball at Jenison.
The weekend begins with an alumni game on Friday Night featuring former stars Steve Smith, Mateen Cleaves, Morris Peterson, Charlie Bell, Antonio Smith and dozens of others.
Tom Izzo's 2012-2013 Spartans square off against Tuskegee on Saturday evening. And Suzy Merchant's ballclub closes out the weekend with a game against IPFW on Sunday afternoon.
