Michigan State loses a PG before Kansas game

The Michigan State Spartans and Kansas Jayhawks both face a tall order tonight when the two basketball powerhouses tip off against one another in the 2012 Champions Classic. For Tom Izzo's team, they will be doing so without back-up point guard Travis Trice.

Trice is dealing with "concussion-like symptoms", according to Diamond Leung of MLive.com. That means the backcourt will be a bit thinner and less experienced when facing an intense Kansas defense.
