The final score Monday night at the Breslin Center was Michigan State 94, Charleston Southern 46, but it seems accurate to say there are no easy games for these Spartans any longer.

Not even two weeks have passed since All-American guard Cassius Winston lost his brother, Zachary, to a train accident near where Zachary attended college and played varsity hoops in Albion, Mich. Zachary Winston was 19.

Cassius has not missed a game since, preferring to honor his brother by continuing to play the game they grew up loving.
