The Michigan State basketball team, which started the season ranked number two in the nation, might be in real trouble.  With seven losses already early in the season and a tough Big Ten schedule still ahead, things are looking bleak. Adding to the problem, Tom Izzo this week dismissed junior guard Korie Lucious from the team for unspecified violations of team rules. Michigan State's disappointing and sometimes bizarre basketball season took a marked downturn with Lucious being kicked off the for the remainder of the season. They started the season as the biggest threat to number one Duke but now are in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament unless Izzo can pull off a late season miracle.
